How to improve and streamline your campus messaging and notifications
Schools are communication challenged when it comes to reaching students. One of the reasons for that is that students are a difficult demographic to communicate with. Students predominantly use text messaging, Twitter, and Facebook as their preferred communication methods, and those platforms do not normally integrate with the Student Information Systems (SIS) in use on campuses today.
- Single sign-on.
- Integration with Active Directory and SIS.
- A hosted solution with branding capabilities.
- The ability to have pre-written messages.
- Role management so it could be used for multiple purposes and by different admins communicating with different groups.
- Reporting capabilities, so we could track messages, who received them, when they were delivered, etc.
- Inconsistent message delivery speeds.
- No reporting capabilities.
- Limited communication abilities that were originally set up to be only for emergencies.
- Adding residency information for students.
- Adding student grade level will be added for more targeted messages.
- The importance of data consistency to avoid duplicate record creation.
