Jochi is reimagining what student support outside of the classroom looks like through a series of student-life management solutions. After spending 2 years closely collaborating with students and faculty locally in Philadelphia to understand their pain points, Jochi got to work. Their solution, Planner by Jochi, is a personal-management tool for students with diverse learning needs. Students can manage their workload, engage with learning specialists, and study effectively – all in one place. Using Jochi’s planner, learning specialists also gain greater visibility into their students' organization and day-to-day academic performance allowing them to provide individualized support.
About the relationship:
At the beginning of their journey, Jochi wrote their own integrations. Soon after, they were pitched a proposal from another integration company that they couldn’t walk away from. A few months into the agreement, things took a turn for the worst with missed deadlines and poor-quality integrations. This put them in a bind with their pilots and so eventually the team got fed up and decided to go back to the drawing board. As they began writing their integrations on their own, they stumbled upon Edlink’s guides for integrations and immediately reached out. Jochi needed:
- several ready-to-go integrations,
- key integration features to match Jochi’s product, and
- a way to onboard learning institutions easily.
And that was exactly what Edlink could deliver immediately.
With one integration to Edlink, Jochi can now connect to over a dozen LMS, SIS, and IAMs. Through Edlink's connections, Jochi offers its tools single sign-on, rostering, and content integration. The Jochi development team can expect a straightforward implementation using Edlink's documentation and support. And Jochi's partner schools can easily connect their LMS or SIS provider using the Edlink 5-minute IT administrator onboarding flow. Now with Edlink, Jochi is truly supported to take on this back-to-school season.
"We were very skeptical of working with another integration provider vs doing things in-house because of our previous experience. The abundance of material Edlink has up about integrations and the access to documentation, prior to agreeing on anything, gave us confidence in the team's technical abilities. I’m confident that with Edlink by our side Jochi is well-positioned to take our solutions to the next level."
