What people are saying

Sonia has been the guiding light this past academic year for not only Field, but the School of Social Work as a whole. We have been able to capture trends and data that previously went unaddressed and unnoticed. The amount of support and availability of the product experts and all others who took time to respond to us via "" greatly assisted in this transition. I am excited for what is to come!
I was involved with piloting Sonia in the Boston University School of Social Work. Our School investigated many different companies, both in the US and AUS, and found [Sonia] not only had the most useful and versatile system, but also their staff was the most willing to work with us to customize Sonia to fit the needs of our specific department.
