Identifying the optimal recruitment software for your institution starts with knowing all the features within your current student recruitment CRM platform. Besides showing you how to enhance the functionality of your system, Ferrilli can also teach you how to create customized recruiting features specific to your organization.

As higher education recruitment becomes more competitive, your institution must stand out above the competition. To attract the top candidates and meet enrollment goals, institutions must engage today’s tech-savvy students on a more personal level across various channels, including mobile and social media applications. The importance of recruitment has led many colleges and universities to devote more resources to achieve higher success rates.

Some of the specific areas admissions recruitment software can address include:

  • Communication and outreach: This area encompasses all the ways you correspond with your recruits, including email, text messaging, voice, social media and printed correspondence. The optimal software will enable you to streamline all these processes and manage them under a single umbrella.
  • Event management: Organizing recruitment events is a critical part of bolstering admission rates, whether you’re organizing campus tours, showcasing a specific academic department or hosting an entire homecoming weekend. Effective software allows you to simplify the management of these events in one system.
  • Reporting and data management: The ability to accurately and efficiently manage your recruitment data is essential for the admissions process. Optimized software allows you to easily access vital application information anywhere in your system through detailed reports and analysis.
  • Application evaluation: Most software systems will enable you to manage data like transcripts, test scores and recommendation letters with a single tool. Many programs allow you to break down the recruitment process according to criteria like graduate status, financial aid eligibility, scholarship status and more.
