Changing out filing cabinets for software was a great investment.

Business Problems

In 2006, Rob started Navigate Financial Aid to help make college affordable. He and his team help guide parents and students through the entire financial aid process for college funding.

Rob was struggling to find a process to efficiently manage the business. They were using a ton of paper and wanted to make the switch to digital. They needed a way to organize everything in one place and make it easier to communicate with staff and clients.
