Rapid prevents a disaster in the classroom

For the first time, chemists at the University of Edinburgh are using a portal developed with Rapid to teach 140 undergraduates computational chemistry.

The first week of the semester disaster struck, the primary server with all the software died. A new server was brought in, but its configuration is different and that would have meant lecture notes had to be altered, instructers would have to be briefed and practical sessions would have to be rescheduled.

Now for the good news. The portal was adjusted, using Rapid, in a few hours to match the new configuration. As the instructors and students were used to the portal, nothing bad happened. They kept going, blissfully unaware of what happened.

This is not the primary selling point of our technology, but definitely something we will include in our next sales pitch.
