August 31, 2011 - Enrollment Rx, an innovator of cloud-based Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for academic institutions, today announced that World Learning has selected the company's enrollment management CRM solution to streamline its application process. Built on salesforce.com's proven cloud computing platform, Enrollment Rx enables World Learning to efficiently manage enrollment for more than 5,000 annual applicants across its education, exchange and development programs.
With an aim to cultivate global leadership and social innovation, World Learning provides programs for high school, undergraduate and graduate students in more than 70 countries. Their previous combination of in-house systems was not agile enough to handle the varying demands of a diverse student body and programs dispersed around the globe. World Learning turned to Enrollment Rx's cloud-based CRM solution because it was user friendly, reliable and flexible. Now the organization can better serve thousands of applicants for three of its core programs:
The Experiment in International Living, a summer program for high school students;
SIT Study Abroad, a field-based undergraduate study abroad program; and
SIT Graduate Institute, which offers internationally focused master's degrees, certificates and professional development programs in the fields of conflict transformation, international education, sustainable development and TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages.)
"One of our main goals in moving to a cloud-based CRM system was to gain efficiencies by unifying our admissions processes across the three entities," said Brigitte Parot, director of business systems analysis and operations at World Learning. "In addition to centralizing information, Enrollment Rx will improve the information flow amongst the programs, staff and students all over the world. We'll be able to respond more quickly to student inquiries, better track prospects as they select a program, and provide better overall service to our constituents."
By standardizing on a cloud infrastructure, World Learning will automate communication workflow for their 200 faculty and staff, including marketing, recruiting, admissions and deans. Additionally, the higher education CRM solution will allow prospective students, parents, and counselors at more than 300 Colleges, Universities, High Schools, and partnership organizations to maintain online profiles, complete and monitor online applications, track overall student progression for each individual program, and engage with World Learning by sharing valuable knowledge and ideas. Enrollment Rx includes the ability to segment various populations by different criteria, thus providing immediate business intelligence across the entire constituent pool.
"For an organization like World Learning that has such a varied student body, flexibility for a CRM solution is a top priority," said Lawrence Levy, president of Enrollment Rx. "Designed for both traditional colleges and universities, and non-traditional higher education organizations, Enrollment Rx is a flexible, cost-effective solution for efficiently managing admission candidates throughout the entire enrollment cycle."
