We love to help training and education innovators make their big ideas work in real life, because we don’t think anyone should have to be constrained by off-the-shelf solutions.

We’ve been developing specialist training and education software for more than 20 years. Our in-house team has built assessment tools, learning management systems, educational mobile apps and more for learners of all ages and abilities.

Drawing on this experience, we can help you to refine your requirements and specify a tool that will fit the needs of your learners, business model and budget – and then build it for you.

Developing a bespoke solution with us is surprisingly cost-effective – especially compared to ongoing costs and compromises of a system that won’t quite do what you need it to.

Our in-house team includes software designers, engineers and testers who are all ed-tech specialists.

Because we have the right people in-house, to draw on as we need them, we’re able to streamline development and keep costs down.

Here’s how we do it:

Understand your needs

We work with your team to understand exactly what you need the finished product to do, and why. Together we’ll compile a list of functions you need based on what your product needs to do for different people.

Prioritise functions

The more complex you make a product, the more expensive it is to build. We’ll help you find the sweet spot that gives you and your users the best value. This includes researching the technical options and estimating the time and cost to achieve each function. Based on this, you can decide how to proceed.


With the requirements clear and a budget in place, we’ll build your software. We split the development work into stages (sprints) tackling as many items from the list as will fit into the time and budget you have. At the start of each sprint the whole team comes together to set consolidated goals – ensuring you stay firmly at the centre of the process and that feedback can be continually incorporated.

Our team has some technical knowledge – but we’re not software developers. We’ll come up with lovely ideas, not appreciating the associated technical challenges. Some agencies would just take our spec and run with it. But Can Studios interrogate it and improve it – which saves us time and money, and ultimately delivers a better product.

We don’t walk away once your product is live. We provide hosting management, ongoing support and maintenance.

And if your needs grow we can build on the great foundations we’ve put in place to continue to develop your product.

Whichever you choose, any technology we create for you is yours and yours alone – so you know your product will stand out from the competition.
