Our software and web solutions help non-profits across North America scale, accelerate their impact, and reach thousands of communities.
In consultation with SmartSAVER's Program Director, we helped SmartSAVER streamline the growth and optimization of their Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) on-boarding solution by creating an automated web-based platform where low-income families across Canada can gain access to education savings in minutes.
Many families, especially those in low-income communities, have limited access to financial products such as RESP. There was an urgent need to remove friction from the process. The traditional paper-based application took months to complete, which led to high-drop off rates among participants and many families excluded from accessing the Canada Learning Bond. Digitization would allow families to bridge the gap between them and their financial institution.
We developed MySmartFUTURE.org, a modern web-based platform capable of processing a large volume of RESP applications each day. It features a responsive user interface optimized for omni-channel delivery and access (web, tablet, and mobile). We simplified the RESP application to a simple 20-minute automated application. We also identified and optimized other areas, including automated email messaging, live chat support, and data aggregation tools.
Now, families can add up to 6 children per application; choose their bank based on geographic proximity or ease of remote access; check their application status; access real-time assistance through live chat; and secure their information with a password-protected login.
- MySmartFuture reduced in-application drop off rate by 75%
- Live chat reduced emailed questions by 50%
- Human errors reduced by 80%

We built a more accessible and engaging platform for EcoSchools Canada, which helped them scale nationally. Our omni-channel tool is driving environmental action in every primary and secondary school across Canada.
EcoSchools Canada sought to expand their award-winning educational and certification services into a nationwide, bi-lingual environmental curriculum for K-12 students. Determined to make a complicated topic fun and intuitive, they needed a user-friendly experience that allowed teachers and students to collaborate on important environmental initiatives, including energy conservation, waste reduction, and food preservation.
We developed a robust platform that enabled schools to gamify their environmental lessons. It awards badges for completing activities, and uses a points system to hand out gold, silver, and bronze trophies. The platform supports thousands of schools with varying levels of user permissions that provide valuable insights to instructors and board administrators.
When EcoSchools launched its new national program, the new automated delivery system saved their staff thousands of hours by reducing administrative inefficiencies. Accessibility to the program has also increased, as the platform allows schools to apply for EcoSchool certification without filling out and mailing in large amounts of paperwork.

Our digital education platform enabled the DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation to deliver financial literacy content in an online format, allowing them to expand their reach across the northeastern U.S., gain insights on community needs, and engage their students in new ways.
DoughMain wanted to modernize their FinKit financial literacy curriculum and digitize their content distribution to better serve young students and expand their program to more high schools across the U.S. Their expansion plans prioritized mobile access and delivering engaging content.
By leveraging our turn-key Fincharm Digital Education Platform, DoughMain turned over 1000 pages of paper-based content into a comprehensive financial literacy e-learning environment in under 2 weeks. Our solution enabled omni-channel delivery, interactive quizzes and assignments, multimedia content hosting, keyword search features, and teacher/learner segmentation. The solution also featured an administrative dashboard where instructors could modify content and aggregate performance data.
In two weeks, DoughMain went from mailing over 1000 pages of workbooks and content to each of their educators to providing them log-in access to the online version of their program. DoughMain slashed administrative costs, scaled their operations across multiple states, and tailored their program content to account for individual and community needs.
