BuildEmpire is a skilled development team specialising in highly customised Totara solutions.

We’ve worked with a number of high profile clients in the Learning and Development Industry including Apollo Education Group, BPP University, and the Centre for Creative Leadership. We’ve also worked with large household brands such as Newell Brands (Oster, Breville, Foodsaver...etc.), Specsavers, and PayPal.

What sets us apart is our expertise in cloud-based software development and our process. We select our developers from the best in the industry and encourage a culture of professional development within our team. Our transparent, Agile approach means you’ll be kept informed every step of the way, projects are planned carefully, and progress is monitored throughout.

We develop solutions tailored to suit each client covering the following areas and more:

  • Bespoke Learning Management Systems – e.g. custom Totara Learn modules
  • Custom VLE Platforms – e.g. gamification, social learning
  • Web Application Development – e.g. engaging and interactive online features
  • eLearning Authoring Tools – e.g. additional functionality and integrations
  • API & Integrations – e.g. integrating databases, cms, eCommerce platforms
  • Enterprise Infrastructure & Architecture – e.g. large-scale security and testing

Large scale builds are where we can really shine. Whether it is building APIs to integrate software, or a bespoke platform which needs to handle large volumes of traffic, we will always test this thoroughly (e.g. load testing, penetration testing…). We offer long-term technical solutions that don’t just provide new features but change the way people do business. 

We listen, we build, we are in it for the long haul.
