iSAMS launches cloud-based admissions solution
iSAMS has announced the launch of a new, cloud-based Admissions solution – the Admissions Cloud Portal – which aims to make it easier for prospective parents to find key school information, complete an enquiry or application and track the application process.
The Admissions Cloud Portal enables schools to build a dedicated admissions website for each division or campus, using a range of customisable drag-and-drop widgets to supply key information in an easily digestible format.
Featuring the school’s branding and logo throughout, the mobile-responsive portal gives parents the opportunity to create an account to log in and track the status of an enquiry or application, view communications between them and the school and even pay registration fees securely, via the iSAMS Payments solution.
“We wanted to create an enhanced admissions process that was as seamless as possible for prospective parents. The new portal was designed to reinforce the school’s brand, whilst making it easy to find information and complete an application from any device,” said Alastair Price, iSAMS Product Director.
The portal helps school staff to gain a detailed picture of user behaviour through its Google Analytics integration, as well as significantly reducing the amount of time spent manually entering information. Once a parent completes an enquiry or admissions form, the data is written directly into the iSAMS central database, removing the need for staff to do so. Parents can also safely upload digital versions of documents, removing the potential for these to go astray and further streamlining the process.
“We’re delighted to have announced the launch of the new Admissions Cloud Portal,” said Jamie Reid, Sales Director. “This is another step towards providing a holistic service to schools, helping to simplify and automate time-consuming tasks and provide SLT’s with the best possible data to inform decisions. With more development to come, we’re excited to see how the portal will benefit schools.’
