Background

Since 1994, when Lightspeed Technologies first entered the education technology market, the company has continued to offer the most innovative and exciting advancements in audio technology to its customers. In a testament to their commitment to their mission and the effectiveness of their products, Lightspeed’s customers have reported profound improvements in the way their students learn. 

Students and teachers are provided a new way of communicating, and educators are now able to ensure that the voice of the teacher is presented in a way that allows the student to fully hear, and therefore, comprehend what is being taught. Altogether, Lightspeed Technologies is offering educators the chance to engage with their students in a way that has never been done before. 

The Situation

Lightspeed’s legacy platform was a challenge to work with and too restrictive for their growing eCommerce operations. They were looking for a new path for their storefront that would give them the freedom and flexibility to create the eCommerce site features that would meet their business requirements.

Lightspeed had been working closely with Andrew Bevins and Switchboard Interactive on multiple marketing initiatives and Switchboard played an integral role in managing the website project.  This included determining the most flexible and scalable solution to meet Lightspeed’s unique requirements and then closely managing the project.
