Request to update Tuition.io Wikipedia page
Hello! My name is Sue, and I am a paid consultant who is helping out Tuition.io.
The company's Wikipedia page has fallen out of date. Over the years, the company's business has changed, but the Wikipedia page still reflects their old focus. Plus the total investment raised is out of date, etc. So unfortunately Wikipedia is not a very accurate source of information about the company. But, being Wikipedia, the page ranks high, so the company is concerned that people interested in their company may be getting incorrect information from Wikipedia.
I understand from various sources that people working with the company are strongly discouraged from making updates to their Wikipedia page themselves. Is there any editor out there who may be interested in updating this article? I provide some sample content and links below to make things easier, should you care to use them. If not, could anyone please let me know how updates like this are supposed to work? I am trying to do this above-board here and do things the way Wikipedia editors would want. Any advice would be appreciated.
SAMPLE CONTENT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
Tuition.io enables global companies to offer student loan payments as an employee benefit. It is the nation's leading student loan management platform, which has helped tens of thousands of borrowers organize over $2 billion in outstanding loans since launching in 2013.
Tuition.io was first to market with an entirely customizable corporate student loan contribution platform that is secure, compliant and scalable. Typical users increase their monthly payments by between 4-8 percent and the site has shown a 20 percent reduction of delinquent loans.
The company has been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Time, Fast Company, Mashable, LifeHacker, CNBC, Business Insider, Yahoo! Finance, Techcrunch and more.
Tuition.io has raised $8.2 million in funding, in three rounds of financing, from MassMutual Financial Group, Mohr Davidow Ventures, Wildcat Venture Partners and others.
History Tuition.io was founded by Brendon McQueen (Founder/CEO) and Steve Pomerantz in 2012. An alum of the Launchpad LA startup accelerator, the company launched into public beta in January 2013. Business model Tuition.io enables global enterprises to offer student loan payments as an employee benefit. The platform gives employees the ability to organize and optimize their student loans while also accelerating payments through employer loan contributions. How It Works Employers invite their teams, or any segment of their teams they choose, to use Tuition.io. Then, based on contribution criteria, Tuition.io facilitates the extra payments directly to the borrowers' student loan servicers. The process is designed to measure and deliver return on investment for both employees and their employers. In many cases, the tool pays for itself, as a reduction in churn results in lowered employee turnover costs and higher employee morale. Research shows that engaged employees are more productive and stay longer.
Thanks for considering my request!
