"Cialfo has provided us with a user-friendly tool that fits the needs of today's modern students. The platform is intuitive and provides a lot of options that can be adjusted to the needs of not only students, but also counselors and schools. Moreover, Cialfo offers step-by-step assistance that makes everything a lot easier."
"One parent who’s new to our school asked me, how do you remember all 500 kids? It’s because of Cialfo’s Notes feature!"
“I have been so impressed by your response to ANY request that I have made to you. You have supported my understanding and always happily take my feedback… and you also act on it! Thank you very much for providing an amazing platform for myself and my students.”
"We chose Cialfo because it offered us ways of connecting with students in new and innovative ways and allowed parents to keep up with how their student is progressing. "
"Cialfo is giving us an opportunity to reevaluate how we have been doing what we have been doing and how we can take it to the next level."
"Cialfo has been excellent for the counselors and the students. I had used Naviance earlier and Cialfo has not only replaced that but done much better than them...lots of avenues covered in the space of College Counseling. Good job Cialfo!"
"Working with Cialfo feels like being home after a long time. Excellent support and service, easy-to-use features, gathered with a friendly team who always welcome feedback not only makes things easier but it makes it fun. I feel lucky and privileged to go through our usual stressful application session with my first graduating class with Cialfo."
"My favorite part about Cialfo is customer support. In my opinion, they get top marks. In one word, I'll describe Cialfo as dynamic. They are growing. They are meeting people's needs. They're listening to the customers. And they're changing and morphing to become better and better."
"My favourite feature in Cialfo by far is the task list. The ability to give students a list of things to do based on where they're applying, what their particular major is, or indecision, allowing them to have a customized experience."
"The introduction of Cialfo brought with it features that are more student- and counselor-friendly. Also, it reached out to regions beyond the US and Canada, which made it more globally acceptable. Cialfo in one word? Comprehensive."
"Because of Cialfo, I can see that it will be so much easier for me to monitor my students' pre-application tasks. My usual laborious tasks of university planning, recommending universities and keeping application records seem to have become so easy. I can now devote more time talking to more students."
“Direct Apply is an amazing tool, and it’s great that you have individual advisors walking students through the process. It just gives the students and us confidence in the product. Direct Apply makes things so efficient in terms of completing the application — student details are pre-populated from the information they’ve filled in on Cialfo.”
