BeneVetsÂ is a secureÂ national SaaS systemÂ that assists Veterans Administration (VA)-accredited representatives (VSOâ€™s and state agencies) with claim development, document management,Â and case management, greatly improving the accuracy of claims filed with the VA. It will soon be the first system to be able to submit claims electronically to the VA. The system also supports the BeneVets Card, a pre-paid card that helps veterans get their VA awards quickly and safely, and includes a nationwide pharmacy discount plan. The cardÂ acts like a checking account for non-banked and under-bankedÂ veterans, and homelessÂ veteransÂ as well. The system is licensed to BeneVets, LLC, and is hosted on our secure private cloud infrastructure.
BeneVets was presented aÂ 2015 Virginia Governorâ€™s Technology Award:
The Virginia Department of Veterans Services has improved functionality of an existing service and created an efficient, effective and productive platform that benefits both the agency and the veterans it serves. The BeneVets Automated Claims Application allows the agency to develop and submit veteran claims to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs entirely through electronic processes. The application eliminates extensive paper usage, significantly reduces postage and supply cost and most importantly, decreases the time it takes for a veteranâ€™s claim to move through the state and federal process. New quality controls significantly reduce errors; its use has substantially reduced the backlog of veteransâ€™ claims. Virginia is the first and only state to utilize and implement a completely electronic veterans claims filing system.

HouseMate Match (Marcus Jewish Community Center)
Housemate Match is a unique housing program that links people who have an extra room in their homes with adults who need a place to live and pays a monthly rent. We were part of a group contributing pro bono hours to creating a system that supported all aspects of this program, including a unique matching algorithm that ranked all potential matches in both directions. The system maintained a database of frailer homeowners in need of transportation, housekeeping and companionship, and a database of potential tenants who can live-in and pay less or no rent. The system also supported the screening and interview processes, and provided email and reporting functionality as well.
