Better Me

The Challenge

BetterMe was a platform that allowed anyone to give or receive feedback about anyone else. While preserving anonymity, BetterMe's site also allowed interaction between the giver and receiver so that questions could be answered and clarifications provided.

As their user base grew, BetterMe needed enhanced Contact Management, better control of their mailing lists, and management reporting.
