Admissions Challenges

Collating enquiry data and tracking enquiry engagement needs to be an automated, time efficient process.
Find solution Online enquiry and application forms are collated automatically in OpenApply. Parents receive personalised emails, reducing the manual work for admissions teams.
Event and admissions management systems should be combined to have a seamless parent  experience and create precise and  accurate data parent experience.
Find solution Parents can see pre-set time slots to book Tours and Open Days in the same place where they enquire and apply. The school can more accurately capture the number of event registrations.

Parents need visibility on what forms and additional documents they need to complete. Schools need automated tracking, processing, and chasing for their forms and documents.

Find solution Automated Checklists are segmented by year level, application status, and custom criteria, providing clarity for parents on what is outstanding during each step of the journey. Automated incomplete checklist reminders allow schools to spend less time on chasing forms and documents.

Sharing information for review internally, references from previous schools and collating internal feedback should be consolidated and easily traceable to allow full visibility for all staff involved.

Information provided during the admissions process often changes. Parents need a way to easily verify and update their information.

Find solution
Data that has already been provided pre-populates on subsequent forms, allowing families to simply verify or update their information throughout the process and on the Enrolment Form.

Re-enrolment processes need to be efficient and streamlined with ease of use for current parents and feedback collection for the school.
Find solution Parents give their Re-Enrolment decision and verify, update, or provide information in the same action, for all siblings at once. Schools can track re-enrolment progress and available seats per year level in real time.
