Grow your institution with better recruiting and financial aid
As more institutions fight harder for fewer high school graduates each year, growing enrollment and tuition is essential for the long-term survival of the many smaller private colleges and universities that lack substantial endowments.
Dynamic Campus’s functional and strategic experts have helped private, faith-based institutions deliver:
- Four years of record-setting freshman classes at University of Mary
- The best enrollment class since 1997 at Texas Wesleyan
- Record-breaking retention and inbound transfers at Greenville University—during the pandemic!
All these consulting and support services are already included at no additional charge for our IT Outsourcing partners. They are also available on a project basis.
Financial aid support
Financial Aid processes and systems can be especially cumbersome, weighing your institution down in wasted resources. They can also be an overlooked opportunity to differentiate and recruit students away from your competitors!
Our Financial Aid experts can map your current processes and cut away any non-value-added activity, then align your financial aid platform with the streamlined process to lock the savings in.
Dynamic Campus saved one institution 1,131 person-hours annually using this approach, decreasing expenses while increasing institutional efficiency.
Modern higher education enrollment and CRM systems like Slate are packed with features that address the full breadth and depth of modern higher education admissions and advancement.
But as intuitive as they may seem out of the box, many institutions struggle to overcome four main roadblocks that prevent them from getting the most from their CRM and Slate investments:
1. Full integration with ERP systems and other campus platforms
Slate is developed to integrate with a variety of platforms and applications in the higher education IT ecosystem, including:
- ERP systems
- Common application services
- Standardized testing and certification data files
- Document management systems
- Financial aid and student success systems and more.
But many institutions lack the internal ability to develop and deploy the real-time connection that fully integrates these systems so data moves securely and at speed across the ecosystem – a critical capability for campus leaders looking for the complete institutional transparency they need to make data-driven decisions.
2. Reporting, dashboards and data visualizations
In today’s higher education environment, smaller institutions can’t afford to make the wrong decision when it comes to enrollment – they need to be able to adjust their activities on a daily basis to ensure they are able to meet their enrollment and retention goals.
Getting critical data into Slate through integration is one challenge, but the other is ensuring leaders have the right data visualizations and dashboards they need to make these decisions, anywhere and any time, on demand. Displaying the correct information a leader needs to be effective requires specific expertise that often resides outside the campus IT team.
3. Business process optimization and automation
Institutions that simply configure Slate to mirror their existing internal processes are missing out on a golden opportunity to remove unnecessary and resource-sapping waste and non-value-added activities from their current processes before they set them in stone with Slate.
Studies have shown that optimizing processes before automating delivers significantly more return on investment than optimization or automation alone – and that ROI lasts longer as well.
4. Slate training and coaching
The most effective and well-implemented software installations are bound to fail unless the user community is ready, willing and able to take full advantage of the new software’s capabilities.
While Slate’s support function is robust, many institutions need additional assistance when it comes to training employees how to use Slate to its fullest potential – and continue to provide the individual user support that leads to individual proficiency.
“Due to juggling duties, I was unable to create my own reports from Slate. Instead, I was individually running queries and then hand typing to see patterns. Within an hour of talking to Dynamic Campus, they went to work creating several customized reports I desperately needed, allowing me to improve several admissions processes due to my ability to see our performance in near real-time!”
