Video Message from CEO Mike McBrady

Many universities start out looking for a simple applicant tracking system, because that is what the “right now” need is. Over time needs change. Departments grow, university requirements evolve, community needs amp up and the need to analyze connected data will become more relevant. The data you collect will change based on so many unforseeable factors. With that, your software should be able to evolve.

Choose a solution that is built from the ground up to grow with you.
