Feature Focus – Timed Auto Responses

Marketing and admissions can now set up an automatic email response based on time. You can now send an email to those that have started an application but not submitted it 2 weeks before an application deadline or send an automatic reminder to chase offers that have not been responded to. Want to prompt people who have started an application but not submitted or taken any action after a certain period of time? Now you can set up an automatic email to remind them or see if they need any assistance. Don’t know what the optimum number of days to wait before you remind them? StudyLink can also help you with that by using Google Analytics to track the average completion time of your applications – and surprisingly each one of our universities using StudyLink Connect is different. Another way StudyLink Connect can help you convert more applicants into students with less effort.

Feature Focus – Customised ‘Smart’ Email Notifications

Admissions can now set up automated email notifications that include text based on different criteria. For example, the automated email to a person applying from one country might be different to the email sent to a person applying from another country. The email might also include some custom text about the course they are applying to. This high level of personalisation ensures admissions can deliver the highest level of service possible for the least amount of effort. Another way StudyLink Connect can help you convert more applicants into students with less effort.

Feature Focus – Pay Acceptance Fees Online

StudyLink Connect now enables agents and direct applicants to accept offers online, including the payment of any fees required. Integrating with an international payment solution like Western Union enables fees to be paid by credit card or telegraphic transfer. The application status is updated as soon as confirmation is received that payment is successful. This makes it easy for agents and direct applicants to accept an offer and faster for admissions to confirm payment has been made. Other payment gateways that can be integrated include Pay2Study. Another way StudyLink Connect can help you convert more applicants into students with less effort.
