What are clients saying about ASF?
Victims Services is very satisfied with the software that the students created for our organization. They created a fully functional program that we can utilize to track important information about services we provide, allowing us to have a checks-and-balances system and ensure quality of service. Collaboration with the team was excellent and the team remained client-centered, continually working with Victims Services, ensuring that the program developed suited the needs of the agency. We are very happy with the results and look forward to future opportunities such as this one.
It was an excellent experience and we have a really useful system that we will implement in January. We would not be in a position to do this without the collaboration with the student developers.
I spend hours each year matching students in cabins by hand. This computer system will allow me to do the same task in less than an hour. This is what technology is supposed to be used for, to make life easier. The Bowling Green State University students did an outstanding job.
The students working on the project did a great job. They seemed to work well together. They divided the jobs up between them as the process continued. At the end of the semester, most of them said that they learned a great deal from the project. Although this was a huge undertaking for a project, they all seemed happy with the end-product and were happy to do a ‘real-life’ project for someone.
