Our paper-based system of collecting applications was not working anymore. Since today’s students prefer electronic-based systems, we needed to find a dependable, high-quality, user-friendly, application system. After speaking with a few of my colleagues who have used EPSS, their services came highly recommended.


So, I contacted Mark and the results have been amazing. 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.”


Working with EPSS dramatically stream-lined every aspect of our work as we can now outsource components we could not previously do ourselves. Consequently, we are free to focus on other areas of the programs we manage.


We desperately needed the services provided by EPSS and cannot imagine what we would do without them.
