ABOUT IQAP

Connect and recruit qualified aspiring international students using our Instant Qualified Applicant Platform (IQAP), your branded peer-to-peer platform.

IQAP uses bots and natural language AI so that your staff, student ambassadors and counsellors can work productively when advising and helping pre-qualified prospective students with their applications.

IQAP can be used as a custom mobile app available in iOS or Android, or as a web app available via a URL.  This app works 24/7, speaks several languages, and is very efficient at qualifying students; it never gets tired.

Respond instantaneously

58% of prospective students prefer to use real-time chat at all stages of communication with a college; 73% to make an enquiry. The IQAP bot will respond immediately, increasing student’s satisfaction.

Qualify with bots

IQAP uses artificial intelligence (AI) to pre-qualify prospective students (based on location, citizenship, language, intended level of study and/or other customised criteria).
IQAP will then notify in real-time via WhatsApp, email and SMS selectively the most suitable staff, counsellor or student ambassador about enquiries, allowing them to respond immediately from their mobile phones if they choose to.

Start applications

IQAP enables advice to be personalised and tailored to education provider. IQAP allows providing formal quotations using up to date international currencies, to be created at the click of the button. IQAP helps prospective students by providing Gen-Z friendly guidance on uploading documentation required for their particular course application, as well as guidance on how to complete their Statements of Purpose.

Redirect students

Automatically assign your potential students to an agency counsellor in your agent channel or, if you prefer, to a staff member or student ambassador in your college. Use criteria like citizenship or language to choose who is the most suitable advisor for your prospective student to connect with.

What's in it for you

Instant Qualified Applicant Platform (IQAP)

IQAP is enabling education providers like you to automate your instant messaging communications to professionally manage thousands of enquiries a day via web or instant messaging apps. IQAP uses bots and natural language A.I. to qualify, respond automatically, and allocate students to the most suitable staff, counsellors or student ambassadors; so enquiries are handled quickly and turned into successful applications.

Reach more students

The average email open rate should be between 15-25%. On the other hand, the open rate through messenger apps is around 98%. Imagine getting almost all of your potential students to take a look at what you are offering them. This is already creating a much larger pool for conversion to acceptance than e-mail could ever come close to.

Reward good advisors

Your own recruiters, your student ambassadors, education agents or school advisors are at the core of your student recruitment strategy. IQAP enables you to work selectively with them in a way that rewards them with qualified prospective students. This means they are more productive at assisting prospective students with applications for your college.

Use your brand

The IQAP platform will be hosted in our domain, e.g. provider.sofiri.com or a domain of your preference, e.g. chat.provider.edu It can also be installed in your existing Facebook Messenger account or we can create a complete new one, e.g. m.me/providerbot. At all times it is your brand that prospective students will see.

Receive full support

Our online training and assistance guarantee that your staff, student ambassadors and agents can make the best of using the IQAP platform. The Sofiri team will service them to boost their productivity and, in consequence, to improve your recruitment numbers. Use our marketing support campaign assistance to reach more aspiring students and generate more qualified prospective students for your agents to support.
