I have been working with the team at Readygrad during 2020 hosting a number of exceptional interns at Livelo in accounting and software development. Both the interns and the team at Readygrad have been of the highest order. If you are looking for interns to work with you, look no further.

Case Study - Industry Group Project

The Host

WiseCar is a mobile application that allows users to access their car details and data from anywhere. Features include tracking service records, saving parking receipts, insurance records, notifications around registration due dates, driver logbook, fuel consumption tracking and tax return assistance - by tracking car-related expenses throughout the year. All information is kept safe on the app, and users can have complete control over their data. It has excellent value when employees are part of a company’s grey fleet and can share data with their employer using secure blockchain technology.

The Group Project

The team was tasked with finding at least three different pricing models to attract b2b customers. Each proposed model needed to provide a positive revenue stream within in six months. The team needed to account for required human resource costs, infrastructure costs, platform costs and customer acquisition costs when designing the models.
Project (small)

The Result

The team produced a complete research project, broken down into the following key areas: research on competitors; competitor comparison; pricing models; marketing strategy; recommendations. Their findings were supported by graphs and key data in the final report. The host company was delighted with their systematic research, which contained new information. They were also pleased with their comprehensive strategy, which would inform the host company’s approach. They published the report internally and asked the team to maintain a connection with the company.
