Bead Bar has now developed into a thriving business across the United States, consisting of three divisions; studios, franchises and Bead Bar on Board. The company also has 15 full-time and 20 part-time employees throughout the various studios. The goal of the Systems Development Project is to move Bead Bar in to the digital world. Bead Bar is committed to improving their workflow and quality of service for their employees and customers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
