Our Solutions

Here is a small selection of recent projects KLAR has been working on:

La Cité College

KLAR Solutions worked with La Cité College to help them manage a simulation-based competition that they run for high school students interested in pursuing health related studies.

Their needs were specific and unique, they needed to generate simulations in a consistent way and have the ability to generate several roles for each simulation. They also needed to create custom rating tools for each role and have the ability to pre-assign students to roles.

Finally, on the day of the event, they needed their raters to be able to rate several individuals from one layout, using iPads or laptops and be able to report the results in several unique ways. There would be very little time to train the raters so the interface needed to be very simple to use.

The most challenging aspect was that the solution needed to be ready for their next event which was 2 months away!

In response, KLAR built a custom web app to meet their needs. KLAR worked with the team at La Cité throughout the development process to ensure the product would meet the requirements on the go live date. Using an agile, iterative approach and the Ruby programming language, the software and the requirements evolved throughout the process to result in a product that was ready to go on time and on budget.


SimKlar is a custom app developed for paramedic educators. It consists of a a web portal used to build and store simulation scenarios, a mobile application that lets facilitators run and rate simulations in the field using iPads.

A sync solution allows for the mobile solution to be fully operable without an internet connection. Once the iPad is back on the network the ratings are synchronized to the main server and can be viewed and reported on via the web portal. See more here: SimKlar website

LaRocca Creative Cakes

KLAR solutions have created a wide range of tailored business apps  for LaRocca Creative Cakes to help them manage their day to day operations. Paper checklists and tracking forms have been replaced by paperless iPad solutions deployed throughout their operations. The agile development model is a perfect fit for LaRocca’s dynamic and innovative team.
