Student Admissions

Major Northern University partners with Pythagoras

Pythagoras works with major northern University to deliver sector leading solution to streamline student admissions

Pythagoras are delighted to announce that stage one of their work with a major northern University has gone live. The University now has a streamlined Applications and Admissions solution offering what is claimed to be sector leading, and a student portal that meets high expectation with design, usability and user experience. The project has utilised Microsoft Dynamics CRM, ADX, SharePoint and KingsWay.

The new applications process allows prospective students to apply to the University through a portal available on the website, which has been designed to be intuitive and mobile, but crucially to enable a relationship to build between staff and student to participate in dialogue, supply information, schedule interviews and handle offer decisions. The new solution also seamlessly integrates with the University’s student recruitment system, which allows staff a single view of the application process and what stage of the process each applicant is at.

Russ Hardy, Senior Project Manager, Pythagoras commented, “To say this has been a significant programme and initiative for Pythagoras is probably an understatement. Following our first engagement with the University back in February 2014 and months of hard work since, including overcoming obstacles, we have created something that we are very proud of.

Stage two of the project is to shortly begin, with a focus on marketing and enquiries.
