the Gilfus Education Group is a higher education technology consulting and software solutions firm. Our consultants focus strictly on higher education and provide consulting in three primary areas:
- Strategy and Planning
- Technology Services (custom development and system integration)
- Institutional Research Services
- and Implementation Services.
the Gilfus Education Group draws upon the skills and experience of its innovative staff and the Gilfus Advisor network to create technology strategies and develop software as a service (SaaS) products designed to help universities be more productive and successful.
Founded in 1997, the Gilfus Education Group is located in the heart of our nations capital in Washington, D.C. just 3 blocks from the White House. Each Gilfus Education Group consultant and Gilfus Advisors has experience working directly at a higher education institution or at a learning management of student information software vendor.
Gilfus Education Group is committed to offering the best service possible to our clients and to delivering appropriate, timely, and robust solutions.
Our “front-line” experiences in managing information technologies help our clients get the most value out of their investments. Institutions of higher education use our consulting services to evaluate and plan proprietary and open source projects.
Technology should empower learners, employees, alumni and other constituencies. It should contain costs while creating and sustaining active participation in an organization’s mission. Technology can improve communications when face-to-face contacts are impractical. Ideally these tools should take on the character of an invisible, reliable utility, but few if any of these goals are easily achieved. Based on our experiences, we offer consulting services to help organizations apply technologies effectively.
The members of the Gilfus Education Group have a decided advantage over many other firms: having been full-time practitioners in the management and support of information technology. The group has years of experience on the front lines of technology, working with faculty, students and administrators on a daily basis, keeping abreast of the latest changes in pedagogy and management, carefully choosing projects from the vast array of today’s technological possibilities.
