We needed a business partner to handle all aspects of our program as we did not have the in-house expertise to do so and that’s exactly what ISTS has done. They helped us design our initial application parameters and their online application process was just what we needed. Over the years we added online chat capability and have them produce several custom reports for us. In addition to these tangible offerings, they provide our program and our applicants impeccable customer service. – Glenda Allred, State of Alabama

ISTS has helped the Taco Bell Foundation streamline its scholarship application, reporting and award distribution processes. We are a small group and previously handled all customer inquiries.

ISTS has truly brought the Taco Bell Foundation into the future. – Taryn McNamara, Taco Bell Foundation
