Mentoring Website

Rightly said by Bob Proctor, 'One good mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you'.

SkillFlow is in the business of realizing the potential and optimizing performance. SkillFlow is one of its kind, world’s first open mentoring network. Whether you are interested in a mentoring relationship as a mentor or as a mentee, you are able to suggest anyone inside or outside of your direct working environment. Even if you are currently not (yet) employed, you are able to enjoy this opportunity and grow as a professional. You can review an additional brief from here.

Goal

The main goal of the site is to provide a platform that connects individuals and help them realize their potential.

How it works?

SkillFlow users are classified into three broader types: Mentors, Mentees and both.
Mentors define goals and tasks and assign them to mentees. Upon completion, mentee receives the score in predefined criteria.

Challenges we encountered and provided skilled solution:

  • Role based access and relationship
  • Competitions
  • Statistics
  • Video calling to mentor and Circle of Skillflow
  • Coins and Credit: While video calling
  • Timezone: Timings would be displayed as per the location of user

Some Good key features to know:

  • Site is accessible via membership only.
  • Goals and tasks are date restricted and overdue state is clearly defined.
  • Easy way to find mentee and mentors.
  • Private Messaging.
  • Notifications: Every notification regarding respective updates of Goals and tasks, Connections, relationships, Messages, sessions, Level update, and score.
  • Custom API Development.
  • Mentor suggestion for Mentee: Displaying best match of Mentor.

End Results:

The work is still in progress since 1.5 years and we have discovered the advantages; individual who had a mentoring relationship through their careers are 5 times more likely to advance higher and faster on their growth. Currently, there are 250+ active users and 20+ organizations using SkillFlow.

Future Plans:

Taking a big leap in upcoming months, we would launch the Mobile Application soon to match the mobile age.
