What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

One of the coolest things we’ve been working on has been parsing resumes to gather information about employment history and references so that our consultants don’t have to spend a ton of time filling out confusing forms. We hope to get quicker, more accurate data while making the platform easier to access and more useful for our consultants.
