Leading developer of career exploration software launches an all-new program for grade 6-12 students and changes the company name

“This program is for all students—not just the self-motivated achievers and forward-thinking planners. We want to reach the discouraged students, the ones who are neutral about school and their next steps. We want them all to be able to create a plan for their future.”

Today Career Cruising, a leading developer of career exploration and planning software, is launching a new program and a new identity: Xello. This all-new program helps students create successful futures through self-knowledge, exploration, and planning. The new identity reflects the company’s growth and evolution from a web-based CD-ROM program released 20 years ago to a SaaS-model education program that’s used by leading K-12 districts, libraries, workforce development centers, and other organizations throughout The Americas.

Xello is a brand new program that helps students plan their own unique journey whether it involves a trade, college, university, entrepreneurship, or other training. Every aspect of the program was built with the user in mind and optimized through extensive testing with students and educators. “In every nook and cranny we could find, we’ve integrated the student into our software,” said Xello CEO, Matt McQuillen. “This program is for all students—not just the self-motivated achievers and forward-thinking planners. We want to reach the discouraged students, the ones who are neutral about school and their next steps. We want them all to be able to create a plan for their future.”

Along with in-depth assessments and a comprehensive database of careers, schools, and programs, Xello also includes built-in curriculum support via interactive lessons, course-planning, and easy-to-use tools to help educators and administrators identify student pathways and make data-driven decisions about their readiness programs. The program was built to meet strict accessibility standards and compatibility with any device.

Together with the launch of a brand new program, Career Cruising has rebranded as Xello, a name that’s global, happy and focused on the future. “When we reflect on our own identity as a company, we can clearly see that our mission has always been about creating successful futures, and that we’ve always approached this challenge in our own unique way,” said Xello President, Jeff Harris. “The transition to Xello is not in any way a departure from our company’s proud history. It’s a natural progression – the result of a continued deepening of our commitment to helping people.”
