Florida Atlantic University
Florida Atlantic University has implemented a system of CRM. Mickey Maros, the Executive Director of Executive Education responsible for the implementation of the programme claim the following:
“Our data resided in a number of different custom and off-the-shelf programs. We relied on excel spreadsheets and the procedure for getting visibility in the student recruiting and admissions activities across numerous programs was cumbersome and time-consuming. These greatly limited our ability to aggregate information and apply this knowledge in order to better serve student requirements”.
The CRM solution has been applied to drive the compulsory enhancements and tie together vital front-end functions such as marketing, recruitment, admissions and enrolment. The company has also made it a priority to enhance internal efficiencies and optimize existing business processes so that staffs in various departments can perform their jobs without focusing on the administrative function.
The new system will also help administrators and faculty members to reorganize their administrative resources.
