Redwood Shores, CA – July 13, 2010

News Facts

Post University has selected Oracle CRM On Demand to transform outdated admissions, financial aid and student services processes to improve efficiency and the student experience as the university continues to meet the demand for high quality higher education.
Founded in 1890 and located in Waterbury, Connecticut, Post University is a student-focused, career-driven university that offers a wide array of degree programs to its more than 5,000 on-campus and online students of all ages.
In the past four years, Post University’s on-campus and online student populations have grown from approximately 1,200 students to more than 5,000.
Post University will begin implementing Oracle CRM On Demand to improve efficiency and customer service within its admissions department, followed soon after by deployment in its financial aid, student services and registrar offices.
Oracle CRM On Demand will enable Post University to seamlessly scale and grow the system as the institution does.
Oracle CRM On Demand will help the university cut costs and improve efficiency by automating a substantial number of manual processes, resulting in a better experience for students, and university faculty and staff.
Post University expects the new admissions process, which was cumbersome and included many time-consuming handoffs, will now automate those same tasks and communications. Processes that took hours to complete will now take minutes or even seconds.
Reporting capabilities in Oracle CRM On Demand also will provide the university with an entirely new mechanism to uncover and act upon real-time business insight.
