Automate

Our real-life evidence has shown that you get significantly more work done by automating repetitive tasks. 

Update the Status of a case

When a GC stage is updated to “Approved”, automatically send an email requesting her driver’s license, insurance card and lost wages.

Automatic Reminders

When a pregnancy enters the 2nd trimester, an auto alert reminds staff to evaluate Escrow

We Keep It Simple

When a surrogate or intended parent submits a form, their record is automatically updated.

Karen Synesiou

As the owner and manager of a renowned surrogacy and egg donor agency for over 30 years, Karen set the industry standard, serving as the blueprint for subsequent agencies.  From the beginning, Karen prioritized the child’s right to know their genetic origins and encouraged contact between the intended parents and their egg donor.   Notably, her agency facilitated the birth of the world’s oldest child, born through surrogacy, to a gay couple.  Karen sold her egg donor agency in 2004 and her surrogacy agency in 2019. Her commitment to the field continues, and she now consults and assists growing agencies in improving their processes and efficiency, as well as speaking at various national and international conferences.
