During the summer months, educational institutions often lose touch with their returning students and aren’t made aware of their plans for the fall. Retaining as many students as possible is key, but can be difficult to do without a solid communication strategy. These organizations face challenges when managing their contacts such as making it easy for prospective students to request more information, efficiently following up with those who complete the year, and checking in with high school graduates who have expressed interest in the school. All of these are key components of the digital solution we have created.
SimplyCast presents the Summer Melt Retention use case. This combination of digital tools helps keep recruiters connected to prospective and returning students and allows them to share information and updates with one another. The number of manual steps is greatly reduced with the use of automated resources.
This solution brings many benefits to the organization, but we have developed a list of our top 3 to share in this blog.
Benefits of the Automated Solution
SimplyCast recognized the need for a solid communication solution for schools and their students. Whether it is a new student, or a potentially returning student, it is vital to be able to share important updates and identify their status with ease. These facilities want to get a sense of who is planning on returning to the school by allowing students to signal their intent to attend for the upcoming year. This can be a challenge to do manually, as there are often thousands of new and returning students for recruiters to connect with. This is why a digital solution is a great alternative, as it can use a combination of advanced resources to help lighten the workload. Here is a breakdown of our top 3 reasons to use the automated Summer Melt Retention solution for communicating with your contacts.
Contacts can be easily and quickly reached out to on mobile devices, maximizing the likelihood that they will see messages, and offering ease of response. This helps reduce the manual workload involved with the communication, as well as ensuring that they are receiving messages in an optimal manner.
After a certain amount of time has passed, follow up messages will be sent. This may be instant or take time depending on if the recipient replies. Following up is a crucial part of the process that is made much simpler by using automated tools.
Share Dynamic Information
The exact information in each message sent to a student can change dynamically based on information already recorded or on actions taken by the student. This ensures that they receive details that are relevant to their responses, maximizing efficiency and personalization.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for communicating with students and sharing information and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help this management process run smoother.
