Sessionz was conceived with a clear vision – to empower individuals to learn from one another and participate in diverse learning experiences. The initial focus was on facilitating in-person sessions to foster a sense of community and set Sessionz apart from its competitors. With the new Events feature, the founder wanted to start accommodating group meetings, both in person and virtually, in order to expand opportunities both for hosts and learners. To read more about how Crowdlinker built the original Sessionz app in 2018, take a look at this Case Study.
While the founder of Sessionz has built many products and worked with other partner development teams in the past, they approached Crowdlinker to develop the new Events feature as they recognized our ability to build and deliver their product effectively. This trust stemmed from our prior collaboration when we initially developed the Sessionz app in 2018. Sessionz wanted to develop and launch the Events feature as per their requirements and designs. This initiative aimed to benefit various user groups, including host users looking to leverage a one-to-many teaching model for increased earnings and clients seeking more affordable learning options compared to one-on-one models.
“Crowdlinker was great at understanding the dynamics of needing to introduce unforeseen new functionality” - Andres Pareja, Founder of Sessionz
We followed the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) rigorously throughout the entire process. Remaining agile allowed us to identify previously missed gaps in requirements and designs through comprehensive grooming processes, offering valuable UX advice and expertise to rectify issues in the app's user experience. Our transparency and collaborative approach to this project enabled effective communication, both internally and externally. Our team maintained open channels for sharing insights and feedback, and clear and transparent communication with Sessionz ensured alignment with their expectations and needs. This enabled us to successfully tackle the pain points outlined above, and many more.
"Regular touch points worked well, the handling of PM activities, minutes, recordings. Well done!" - Andres Pareja, Founder of Sessionz

In July 2023, Sessionz and Crowdlinker successfully launched the Events feature. This opens up many exciting opportunities for Sessionz: with Events, Sessionz will now be able to attract a broader audience, facilitate user engagement, and ultimately increase their revenue. We’re excited to see how Events will reshape the way people learn and foster a vibrant community of learners and educators. Big thanks to Sessionz for trusting us as their application development partner!
