The Company

The Manager’s Toolkit® is a trademark of Peak Learning and Development. They are learning and development and performance improvement specialists with an enviable reputation for creating and delivering development interventions that get the best out of people, improve team performance and drive business results. They have used their deep knowledge and experiences from the past 30 years to curate The Manager’s Toolkit®.


The Project

We were commissioned to assist in the design, development, deployment and ongoing support for the platform. Working together we created engaging designs that matched the brand and professional aesthetic expectations set by Peak Learning. Using our tried and tested software development platform our qualified team developed a range of features including:

  • Authorisation and access based on roles, companies and packages
  • Interactive tools and training
    • the ability for an admin to create tools that can be saved, printed and downloaded by a user
    • the ability for a user to edit forms on a mobile, tablet or computer
    • graphics, videos, text guides editable by an admin (WYSIWYG)
  • Community based discussions – including moderation
  • Detailed reporting across a wide range of indicators

Security, Availability and Performance were critical factors in designing an infrastructure architecture that balances the budget and requirements of Peak Learning. Our Architect team designed a hosting and support solution to meet the requirements, and our support team provides ticket-based support ensuring the solution continues to be fit for purpose.


The Effect

The solution has allowed us to reach more clients in a cost-effective way, we can easily manage and update content along with seeing what is proving the most and least popular. It also allows us to better control access to our copyrighted material ensuring only those with an active licence have access.

“to be quite frank it has helped us survive” – Mark Evenden

They understood our requirement’s precisely and delivered what was asked on time and in budget. They were very flexible and responsive to our feedback during the process. If they thought there was a there was a better way than the one we requested they also challenged us. We have subsequently asked them to complete other projects and will continue to use them.”
