EPSS was extremely understanding and responsive to our individual needs. Even though our staff was initially apprehensive about converting to an electronic system, Mark and his team were always there to oversee every step of the process. Their assistance was absolutely invaluable. In fact, I even considered them an "extension of our office staff."
EPSS' application evaluation platform enables the Kenan Fellows Program to effectively manage nearly 1,000 applicants for our annual cohort. EPSS is extraordinarily responsive in customizing the platform for our program each year, and provides unparalleled customer service throughout our application process.
We are a small staffed office, and EPSS has provided user friendly web application process that handles hundreds of our participants use each year. We are able to collect timely, precise data that is specific to our needs. This service has streamlined many of our activities and saved numerous man hours for minimal costs. EPSS services have been invaluable to us.
