Working in partnership with Ridgeway has allowed us to achieve our goal of creating an exciting and innovative learning platform with the ability to reach students across the globe. Jodine Perrin

De Beers Group wanted to build and offer online courses to share their knowledge with industry members and other interested parties across the globe, through an education hub. The site uses the Kentico E-commerce module to enable users to purchase offline courses around the world as well as pay for access to the online course. It has been translated into Chinese, Turkish, Italian and Thai with other languages in process. Ridgeway utilised various Kentico out-of-the-box features including security and authentication mechanisms, custom modules, contact and account management, and activity tracking.

Jodine Perrin, Director of Education & Training, De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds, says: 

‘‘Working in partnership with Ridgeway has allowed us to achieve our goal of creating an exciting and innovative learning platform with the ability to reach students across the globe. The future projects within our roadmap will expand the functionality of the site, focusing on giving our students the best possible learning experience."

Ridgeway is the UK's leading dedicated Kentico Gold Partner and Quality Expert and we have an impressive 16 Kentico Sites of the Month and 7 Kentico Sites of the Year under our belt.
