Academic ERP Admissions/Recruiting/CRM

Today's college recruiting practices are characterized by highly sophisticated, data-driven marketing strategies. By segmenting markets, recruiters can gain keen insights into how students make college choices, thus targeting prospects most likely to select their institutions.

At the same time, students have become equally selective and demanding consumers who filter their direct mail, e-mail and banner ads while exploring websites and visiting colleges.

Analytical techniques and market research tools allow institutions to target effectively direct mail, off-campus visits or receptions, telemarketing and financial aid awards.

Technology adds new dimensions to recruitment practices used in marketing your institution and counseling students. Today, students routinely apply on online as the Internet plays an ever-increasing role in recruiting students while reducing costs for institutions.

As a Web-native solution, CAMS® Enterprise manages the entire recruitment process from the prospect stage all the way through admissions. Whether recruiters are on the road or in the office, they have instant access to active student information, and by automating administrative tasks, they can spend more time with prospects, turning them into applicants and admitted students.
