Turning 30 years of classroom expertise into an exercise platform

Product innovation
Google Cloud Platform

Our client -Eureka- is a center of expertise for children with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dyspraxia. During their 30+ years of existence, they have developed successful methodologies and tools allowing these children to successfully integrate back into the regular educational system. They approached us to materialise their lifelong dream of turning their expertise into a digital product that could serve a much wider user audience. In this case study we present our end to end approach.

We were tasked with translating Eureka’s didactic experience into a digital platform for children aged 6-14, leveraging machine learning techniques to construct optimal education paths and tap into children’s strengths while overcoming their difficulties.


We built a central SaaS product with an online exercise interface for children and a management dashboard for their parents, teachers and speech practitioners to keep an eye on the child’s progress. We set up all operational instruments to make sure we could support our user base and actively capture feedback.


We started off with classroom visits to fully understand how Eureka is helping children in the real world. We gathered a dedicated team consisting of a product manager, designer and multiple software engineer to build the platform and iterate based on user feedback.

Defining the functional and architectural specifications for an optimal online learning experience

We're bringing all actors relevant to a child's learning trajectory together online: children, parents, teachers and speech therapists. Rather than starting from a predefined set of learning objectives, CleverKids adapts to the actual abilities of the child making sure they will always be practicing at the correct level and pace for maximum motivation. With these guiding principles in mind, we stepped to the drawing board.

Design track:

We kickstarted a design track in order to fully conceptualise the platform in a clickable prototype that could be validated by all user audiences. We used the Eureka school as a testing playground to see how children would interact with the interfaces.

Architectural track:

On the architectural side we opted for a scalable architecture with Google Cloud Platform. On peak hours during or right after school, the platform should be able to deal with significant user and data volumes.

Organising a highly effective product development process

We set up a dedicated product development team alongside a strong product owner from Eureka. We decided to capture user feedback early on, which also meant needing to keep the roadmap flexible as we moved along. We turned the roadmap into product development sprints with scrum routines as a basis: planning sessions, daily standups and demos at the end of each sprint.

CleverKids is set up as a SaaS product on top of Google Cloud infrastructure. Automated pipelines were set up with a high test coverage to be able to releases frequently yet reliably.

Giving the platform the operational foundations to grow

After a successful validation period, the platform was opened up to a broader audience with a low-entry usage based pricing model. We continue to support Eureka in the further Benelux and European rollout on key operational dimensions: setting up customer success activities, billing procedures, legal documentation, and more to give the product every fighting chance to find true product-market fit.

Following many ideation and formalization sessions, we chose Panenco as the end-to-end product development partner for the CleverKids platform. Panenco truly empathized with our ambition to spread our proven methodologies and tools across the educational system. They provided all the skills and knowhow needed to be successful in our mission.
