Improving Student Engagement as Institution Began to Grow
As enrollment surged at University of Mobile, following up with prospective student and applicants and building relationships with them through manual, paper-intensive processes became more difficult for enrollment counselors. The goal was to automate and improve outbound communications.
Evaluating Higher Ed CRM Solutions to Drive Student Engagement
After researching CRM platforms, University of Mobile chose Radius by Campus Management because of its user-friendly interface, ease of access, and the ability to transform from paper-based to digital admissions processes and student engagement.
- Moved from a paper office to a digital office
- Empowered staff to make decisions
- Able to access to documents on the road
Empowering Staff and Gaining Visibility into Student Needs
By moving from paper to digital, instead of spending a day importing and processing applications, staff members can now develop skills in other areas. Moving to a new solution created transparency for management and within the application process. Before using Radius by Campus Management, the Assistant Director or Director had to physically review and make decisions on all the files.
The application committee uses the decision module to create unique views on their dashboards within the system and to sign off on a decision. Enrollment counselors can access documents at any time, providing the mobility they need. An admissions decision can now be made on the road. Other departments also see the changes in efficiency, resulting in increased campus-wide buy-in.
