Requiring a headless commerce website for their e-learning suite of courses, CareerStep turned to Guidance for a solution that would include bundled courses and a custom checkout for their WordPress powered CMS—all in under 3 months. As online regulatory requirements are an essential part of the initial course commitment, CareerStep required a process to ensure all necessary documentation is reviewed and signed by students.
CareerStep is the leading provider of online medical training that focuses on an integrated technology platform to deliver high-quality learning content to their students. For over three decades, the company has helped students in the healthcare space and beyond earn certifications from the comfort of their home with cost efficient courses that lead to career placements. Partnered with over 170 higher education institutions across the USA, CareerStep strives to provide a seamless and effective e-learning experience for their students.
Working within BigCommerce’s flexible environment, Guidance implemented a number of features that are not native to BigCommerce or any of the apps in the BigCommerce app store. In order to support CareerStep’s business operations, Guidance ensured smooth integrations leveraging BigCommerce APIs alongside bespoke implementations.
"I've worked with Guidance on several projects and I'm consistently impressed with their ability to leverage the BigCommerce platform to its fullest capabilities with very little assistance from our technical resources team.”
In 3 months, Guidance delivered a headless commerce e-learning solution powered by BigCommerce checkout and WordPress CMS capable of complex bundling with a customized cart.
CareerStep's new solution meets and exceeds all e-learning regulatory requirements and it includes new features like ratings and reviews.
Guidance built CareerStep a headless commerce website for their suite of e-learning courses. Their new customized checkout with bundled courses is powered by BigCommerce while their content and resource heavy CMS is built on WordPress. The new solution has allowed CareerStep to expand and scale their e-learning business in under 3 months.
As online regulatory requirements are an essential part of the initial course commitment, CareerStep now has a process to ensure all necessary documentation is reviewed and signed by students. Since ratings and reviews are one of the best tools for students to evaluate their decisions and for CareerStep to improve their course material, Guidance helped implement TrustPilot for authentic feedback from students.
