With the recent changes in funding and legislation, Higher Education establishments are now looking to maximise efficiency and revenue, whilst making the most of their existing resources. Following these changes, competition between establishments is becoming really intense.  There is an increased drive to improve services provided to students and to strengthen and maintain communication links with past students. In order to achieve this the sector has adopted a much more commercial approach to their communications and interactions with both prospective and existing students, which now mirrors the customer / supplier dynamic traditionally associated with the private sector. As a result of this, professionals across the sector are crying out for intuitive technology to support them at both a daily and long-term strategic level.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM from Pythagoras has been tailored for Higher Education establishments, empowering Universities in the three key areas of Marketing and Admissions, Student Services & Support and Alumni management allowing the communication path of the entire student lifecycle to be managed in single repository.

Pythagoras & Microsoft will be holding an event to dive deeper into the benefits of such solutions and discuss how a number of HE organisations are already well on the road to achieving these goals.
