Key Business Processes in Higher Education

Student Administration

The key to becoming a smart university is to integrate and manage the entire student lifecycle – from prospect to alumnus. By communicating, collaborating, and supporting students throughout their journey, you can improve student satisfaction and strengthen student success.

Student Analytics

Data-driven universities will gain an edge on the competition. Students and administration demand easy access to real-time information, while analytics enable universities to predict outcomes, personalize learning programs, and provide proactive support.

Sales and Marketing

Effective higher education marketing strategies should treat each and every student, both current and prospective, as an individual. This means segmenting students and analyzing their past, present, and future actions to make personalized recommendations and offers in real time.

Student Commerce

With a single platform for commerce, universities can reach students on all channels and promote their offerings. Online shops enable students and prospects to browse products and services on any device, so they can enroll in online courses or purchase branded merchandise or course materials, for example.
