Gatherworks, Inc. originally formed in 2003 to provide software add-ons for video conferencing, but quickly decided to change direction when it saw a need in the marketplace for web conferencing. GatherPlace
was introduced soon after as a web conferencing service developed to assist small and medium sized businesses communicate, collaborate, and sell without breaking the bank. GatherPlace has grown to support companies in more than 80 countries.
Through a collaboration with one of our GatherPlace clients, The Potter's School (TPS)
, development started on a new product offering. The school recognized their need for a new registration system that would solve the problems unique to their homeschool educational space so they turned to us and the resulting product was named StudyPlace
. StudyPlace is a web-based platform that offers a variety of valuable features including flexible family payment schedules, automated invoices and payment tracking, and 24-hr online family access to enrollment and billing transactions. The platform also incorporates a powerful learning management tool that enables TPS teachers to post assignments, accept online submissions, create and grade tests online, and much more.
