Dr. Michael Thorp, York College of Pennsylvania

As a new Slate school that signed up during the COVID-19 pandemic, we didn't have the luxury of traveling to Connecticut and utilize the Launch Pad training offered by [Technolutions]. Without Underscore, we would be lost and most likely eons behind where we need to be at this point.

The guidance and assistance Underscore has provided throughout implementation has helped us realize our aggressive timeline was attainable. Underscore has taken our complex business process and helped streamline it to best fit our Slate needs.

The portal Underscore designed for us is clean, easy to navigate, and houses all of our needed resources. I would absolutely recommend working with this team – they were helpful and very responsive to all of our needs!

Whitney Lewis, Oglethorpe University

Working with Underscore has been phenomenal. The team conducts their own research about our institution and that enables them to provide us with marketing pieces that are creative, engaging and relatable. The design and approval process is professional and efficient. They are always able to achieve our desired result and exceed our expectations!
