"Our most successful partnerships are the ones that share that customer first mentality, and we quickly saw that SchoolFuel shares that way of thinking."

FirstView will handle compliance, customer service and program reports for SchoolFuel, in addition to other crucial backend components in what both parties feel can be a tremendously successful program.
