When our Field Education team had the opportunity to improve inefficient processes that were adding time and costs to running our field placement programs, we jumped at the chance!

After an extensive process reviewing available options, we confidently selected Sonia as the best software for managing student placements. Sonia came with outstanding customer references and was the only software that met our requirements around flexibility, customization, and reporting.

We have implemented Sonia across a number of degree programs at William James College and plan to add more. With Sonia, we can now easily and quickly customize how each degree program and training level is managed to ensure unique accreditation requirements are covered.

By implementing Sonia, we are saving on months of costly labor, and we are weeks ahead of our normal schedule!

The Field Education team is extremely happy with how quickly they have been able to get up and running with Sonia. The user-friendly interface made the transition from our legacy system to Sonia quite easy. Plus, our sites and students are delighted with the new system. I would definitely recommend Sonia!
