Smart Software for Organization NeedsIntercambio, a relationship-focused non-profit organization, provides education, resources, and training in English that create meaningful connections, build cultural awareness, and inspire trust. The vision of reaching more students and volunteers in the United States and complex local regulations for the pandemic faced diverse needs, including updating their processes.
The organization needed an online classroom solution that could integrate with its existing procedures to provide synchronization, automation, and ease of use tailored to the specific needs of its users. After an extensive RFP process, they determined that 23blocks can improve the classroom management needs of their users online.

Ready for Anything
Including a Global Pandemic
Intercambio's well-oiled business continuity plan was put to the test when the COVID-19 pandemic hit full force.
However, because the Intercambio team had some electronic processes already in place, the business did not have much impact- even during a very unusual time.
"They have gone from a classroom-based system to an electronic system." That is a brilliant thing to do to affront current situations.
"They took a complex situation and turned it into an opportunity for improvement. A true example that describes Intercambio."
Because the content was consolidated, CCEnglish could quickly move from the classroom to the remote environment without downtime interruptions.
Students and teachers can now meet for their sessions anytime from anywhere, quickly, without cumbersome manual processes.
By minimizing paper records and reports, registrations, assignments, and mailing of books, CCEnglish reduces your carbon footprint while streamlining processes.
