NotLost is a simple lost and found software solution for businesses like concert venues, trains, amusement parks, and hotels. NotLost makes it easy to return lost items to their owners, increasing customer happiness and streamlining lost property management. Co-founder and Director of Technology, Sam Nash, explains why they built NotLost on Neo4j AuraDB on AWS.

"We knew that we needed a really flexible database model because we were aware enough that as we continued to build, things would change,” Nash said. “We didn’t have a really clear concept of the data structure. We didn’t really know what kind of objects we would need to be recording. We knew that there were going to be complex relations between attributes that we wanted to build for our matching logic. The graph database seemed like the natural choice."
