San Mateo County Community College District Selects Enrollment Rx to Transform Enrollment Management
April 8, 2016 09:00 AM
Schiller Park, IL — April 8, 2016 — Enrollment Rx, the leading provider of cloud-based Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for higher education, today announced that the San Mateo County Community College District has selected Enrollment Rx to streamline the application process for international students. By improving communication and relationship building with prospective students, Enrollment Rx will support the admissions teams at each of the District’s three colleges in their effort to increase applications and create an exceptional student experience.
San Mateo County Community College District serves more than 40,000 students each year across three colleges located in the Silicon Valley: Cañada College (Redwood City), College of San Mateo (San Mateo) and Skyline College (San Bruno). Previously, the admissions staff was tasked with manually entering application data into their Student Information System (SIS), which proved to be highly inefficient, especially as enrollment increased. Through seamless integration with Banner Student, Enrollment Rx will fully automate this application process. In addition, staff across the three campuses will now have access to a centralized system to simplify data access, sharing and reporting.
“When evaluating CRM options, Enrollment Rx easily stood out as the most comprehensive offering, meeting all of our integration and communication requirements,” said Eugene Whitlock, Vice Chancellor, San Mateo County Community College District. “We are all excited to get the new system in place and we’re banking on it to completely transform how we engage with international students. Enrollment Rx offers a modern enrollment management solution that will help us automate admissions tasks, while building a better experience for students.”
As part of the CRM deployment, San Mateo County Community College District will also implement a customized student portal from Enrollment Rx. By enabling international students to self-serve, the online portal will simplify the application process for students and dramatically reduce administrative follow-up for missing documents, freeing up staff time to focus on higher-value relationship building. The District also plans to extend Enrollment Rx to recruitment efforts, enabling staff to create more proactive outreach campaigns and better manage third-party agents involved in international recruiting.
“Along with the broader higher ed landscape, community colleges are feeling the pressure to attract and retain students in the face of ever-increasing competition,” said Lawrence Levy, president and CEO of Enrollment Rx. “As community colleges like San Mateo County Community College District look to raise the bar on student success, both as it relates to attracting and retaining students, CRM systems become a critical part of the puzzle to automate enrollment processes and personalize student engagement and recruitment.”
