Dean FrancisCase Study

OneBridge Advisors was co-founded by Dean Francis in October of 2022 to make it easier for small to midsize businesses and nonprofits to access valuable insight on tax credits and other matters that can make a significant difference in their ability to grow and scale.


OneBridge Advisors’ Problem

OneBridge Advisors, a young consulting group, found itself bogged down by manual processes. They were using basic tools like Google Sheets for data management, leading to a frustratingly inefficient workflow. Pulling together information and generating reports became a tedious chore, hindering productivity and causing their operations manager immense frustration. This lack of a proper software solution was hindering their growth and efficiency, demanding a better answer.
