White Paper

360° Student Relationship Management for Higher Education

Educational institutes have traditionally used CRM systems for acquisition and enrollment of students. However, when it comes to preventing student churn, these systems are ineffective. Moreover, CRM systems are largely tools for the sales team and they ignore the role that the faculty or alumni can play to close the leads.


Digital has changed the business model for the publishing, media and entertainment industry. With the increasing number of choices on the internet, a website needs to create unique customer experiences to stand out. Similarly, it has to capture, process and analyze the usage trial left behind by the customer along with those left behind by hundreds of others to identify a pattern and generate personalized experiences.
