GoGuardian

GoGuardian helps thousands of K-12 schools maximize the learning potential of every student. One of the ways they do 
this is by using Pusher Channels to connect students and teachers in engaging and safe learning environments. Faced with rapid growth and in-house infrastructure that was costly to maintain and had problems scaling, GoGuardian turned to Pusher Channels. It took a fraction of the time to get into production while meeting their stringent privacy needs. Best of all, as Director of Engineering Nick Tyler says, "it just works"— scaling seamlessly and automatically to handle GoGuardian’s rapid growth.

Case study

Immersive live display for the Tokyo Olympics with APPIX Tech

For the most captivating moment of the Olympic Closing ceremony in 2021, APPIX Technologies and Moment Factory used Pusher Channels to deliver an extraordinary light display via synchronized participant devices.

“We deal with student data, which comes with serious privacy requirements. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without Pusher.”

Nick Tyler

Director of Engineering, GoGuardian

“In our time working together, Pusher has been one of our most reliable technology partners in that we haven't experienced any issues or downtime. The service has been flawless, and their team is super knowledgeable and has been great to work with.”

Connor Thielmann

VP of Business Operations, ServiceTitan

“The developer experience for us was fantastic. When we’re working with Pusher not only do we have the trusted infrastructure partnership, we also have all of the documentation, the snippets, the client side library which has fallbacks and stuff. It makes life a lot easier.”

Jeremy Bowers

Director of Engineering, The Washington Post

“We struggled with a lot of our infrastructure to handle a sudden spike in load. We’ve had to engineer a lot of complexity there to solve that. We haven’t had to do that with Pusher.”
