• Purple Leap has partnered with over 150 B-schools and Engineering colleges
in over 14 states in India and works with over 300 corporates.
• It has trained more than 10000 students in last three years.
• PurpleLeap required a revamp of their existing LMS system that was
bootstrapped into place by an internal team.
• The system lacked a good user interface and many critical features.
• PurpleLeap required a comprehensive online portal that provided the
requisite and critical information to students and tutors to keep a tab on
attendance, schedule of classes and tests, announcements, test scores, and
also enable online test taking.
• Neev developed an online portal for PurpleLeap that provided students and tutors
secure, role-based access to the system.
• Once logged in, the students were provided a dashboard with information like class, test
schedule, attendance, test score and announcements among others.
• The system provided a to-do list for students to keep a tab on their assignments.
• PurpleLeap training activities included training schedules, trainer’s activities, maintaining
question banks, generating assignments, question papers, online test for students etc.
• The system provided trainers with information like test scores to monitor students’
performance and attendance status.
• It also enabled trainers to administer tests online, inform students about
schedule of classes and tests.
• Neev also built an SMS-based messaging system that enabled tutors to send
SMS alerts to students.
• All PurpleLeap client companies could search for PurpleLeap students based
on defined criteria and download student details and resumes from the
• Students’ placement history and PurpleLeap certification history was also
maintained through this portal.
• Neev used a MVC design pattern on Drupal to implement the LMS and
completely redesigned the UI/UX of the application.

• Page Load time less than 3 seconds. Usage of tools like YSLOW, Firebug to
identify and fix page loads that were slow.
• Major Improvement in the UI/UX of the application.
• Existing code had to be refactored.
• Several pages required full page refreshes.
• Team had to study and understand the application independently
since very little documentation was available.
