So, what do we really do?
Hi! At Tapstart, we don't like to talk much about ourselves. We would rather spend all our time solving our customers' problems, or coming up with new ideas to improve what we do!
But since you came to this page, it’s our duty to give you a quick snapshot.
We're an Education Technology company that is helping young individuals achieve professional success, using Functional Skill Assessments, Analytics and Data-Driven Learning techniques.
