  • Create a new version of the software that is mobile and tablet-optimized.
  • Enhance the application’s experience to make it more customer-friendly, stand out amongst its competitors, and become more personalized.
  • Provide a foundation for adding on future functionality
  • Include future functionality in the foundation to allow snippets of gated content out to the public-facing marketing website.
  • Augment the current IT department’s resources to allow for quicker delivery of the project by creating a partnership with BizStream.
