Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Catapult developed our college savings plan recording keeping system called PRISM in 2016. This program was highly technical in nature including moving from physical servers to the Cloud, developing an interactive customer portal and core application, and make it scaleable for future product modules.

2017 - 2020 Catapult has developed modules interlinking with PRISM for other programs we offer.The process from development through launch has run just as seamlessly on these projects as the original project in 2016. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Our projects have been successful because we've been fortunate to have the best of the best of Catapult developers and project managers working with us. Our project success is due to their knowledge and expertise! It has been very beneficial having them based locally. The programs are very user friendly and function perfectly. Our launches have been truly uneventful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Erica was a great PM. We were very sorry to see her leave Catapult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We own the code, so the system was developed specifically for our use and our needs. Having a scaleable product has also given us the ability to add four additional product modules using much of the existing functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
