Revolutionizing Education: From Concept to 4 Million Users with Pass

Pass aimed to modernize the traditional hall pass system, creating a digital platform to enhance safety and streamline student management.


— Digital Platform Development

At Donatix our mission is to empower clients with innovative solutions that transform their business landscapes. Our partnership with Eduspire Solutions, now part of Securly Inc., to create the Pass platform is a prime example of this commitment.

Our challenge? To scale their initial MVP into a robust platform that could serve over 10 million users within five years. We took on the challenge and transformed Pass into a reliable solution now used by over 4 million users every day, ensuring a smooth and secure student movement management experience in educational institutions.

Approach to Innovation

To transform Pass into a robust, scalable platform, we took a multi-pronged approach:

  • Front-end Modernization: We developed a Single Page Application (SPA) with Vue.js, creating a responsive user interface and enhancing the overall user experience.
  • Back-end Scalability: Utilizing Laravel for the server-side ensured a reliable and maintainable structure, crucial for supporting a growing user base.
  • Real-time Communication: Custom WebSocket implementation allowed for scalable real-time communication, crucial for a platform with millions of users.
  • Advanced Data Handling: We used ElasticSearch with separate clusters for user data and general data, enhancing search capabilities and improving overall performance.
  • Cost-Efficient Resource Management: By optimizing write operations on ElasticSearch, we reduced system costs while maintaining high performance.
  • Robust Infrastructure: Building on AWS and employing Nginx as a high-performance HTTP server ensured scalability and reliability.

Our approach was driven by a focus on addressing user pain points—whether it was improving load times, ensuring platform stability, or creating an intuitive user interface. Our team worked closely with Securly to understand their needs and tailor solutions that would support their growth.

Results - A Platform Reimagined

The transformation of Pass has had a significant impact:

    • Improved Platform Performance: Pass now supports over 4 million users with minimal server load and faster response times.
    • Enhanced User Experience: The platform offers a seamless experience, reducing wait times and ensuring smooth navigation.
    • Cost-Effective Solutions: Our custom WebSocket and ElasticSearch implementations optimized resource usage, reducing operational costs.

Project Success and Future Prospects

The success of Pass underscores Donatix's ability to tackle complex challenges and deliver high-quality solutions. We are proud to have helped Securly turn an MVP into a flagship product, proving that with the right approach, even the most ambitious projects can be realized. Looking ahead, Pass is set to continue its growth, and we are excited to be at the forefront of its journey, ready to support its evolution with innovative and scalable solutions.
