Award Force
When we run a series of award program with different set of judges in rounds, we have had the best use of AF. It is highly competent in processing the applications specially as our number of applicants are over 2000. Therefore, we have been able to streamline the entire award process and reduce the margin of error and very transparent and efficient judging criterias implemented.

Without a doubt this is a program that I would recommend because of how useful it was for us. Everything is now easier, the applications arrive in one place, everything is automated and the program itself helps us to evaluate the applications faster. I highly recommend it to all companies that provide scholarships.

The customer support team was outstanding in AF. They were very attentive and on point in our requirements. Also the pricing was very affordable. We had few recommendations from existing users who were already in our business market.
