As a leader in education technology, Hobsons impacts millions of students across the United States each day through its three online solutions, Naviance, Intersect and Starfish. In addition to supporting students via its solutions, Hobsons employees enjoy extending their reach to education-related organizations in our communities.
Starfish supports nearly 500 institutions on its platform -- impacting more than 4 million students every term. We effect change with our schools by integrating enhanced case management tools, predictive analytics, student support and academic planning on a single platform.
In May, we announced improvements to Naviance for the next school year that will have a positive impact on staff, students and parents.
