It is very simple to upload projects and other things that you want to showcase on your profile. It is a nice combination of Linkedin and Facebook so it is fairly user friendly for those who are already used to those programs. The customer service and support is phenomenal, they have been very quick answering our questions and concerns as well as speedy with resolving technical errors.
What do you dislike?
From the reviewer side, it takes a lot of practice to get used to the pathway. There have been tech issues here and there but it is also a brand new platform to us on the administrative side and over 550 new users trying out this platform. There are some nitpicky things that we think could be improved, but they are things that we are getting used to. We have not come across any major program issues yet.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Again, a great way for users to showcase as well as submit things for review
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are using this as a way for students to showcase their work and ultimately prepare a file of all their work so far to show potential employers after they graduate. It is also an easy to use system for each student or user to have their own profile and it is easy to go back into their history to review previously uploaded things.
