CRM for Education
Educational institutions today face daunting economic pressures and shortages of capital. Leaders are looking for ways to control costs while still providing high-quality service and preserving programs. They need to support a steady or growing number of students with fewer resources and staff. Integrated solutions built on Microsoft Dynamics can help you gain deeper insight into corporate and alumni relations, admissions and enrollment, facilities and asset management, recruiting and staffing, student and teacher performance, and more. As a result, you can use this insight to adjust business processes and to modernize legacy systems to help lower costs and improve productivity for better measurement and outcomes. Solutions for Education built on Microsoft Dynamics provide the flexibility of deployment choice-on-premises or in the cloud - to transform for the future.
