Automate student registration to increase efficiency and speed up the enrollment process
It’s silly to believe that only a commercial business needs automation. Customers, clients, employees, teammates, users, whatever you want to call them are demanding simpler, more streamlined processes. But what does streamlined mean? It means automated, and educational institutions are no exception. Students want automation too. Educational institutions like colleges and universities have to step up to the plate and introduce better systems, technology, and practices to keep students’ attention and interest. Simply put, when your student registration workflow is as quick and easy-to-fill-out and sign as possible, your program becomes more attractive. This article is going to show you how the airSlate Academy and its courses will help you turn your error-prone and slow enrollment process into fully-automated Flow.
The traditional student registration system: why things have to change
Using a paper-based workflow leads to a number of problems that affect the quality and speed at which students can successfully register to study at your institution.As a result, frustrated students will stop registering and go somewhere where it’s easier to sign up and start. Meaning you lose valuable customers and your institution builds itself a reputation of being "out-of-date."
Let’s take a closer look at what turns prospective students off.
Printing, scanning, signing, and saving hard copies
First of all, not everyone has office equipment anymore. Most businesses don’t even have office equipment anymore. Don’t expect your students to. Aside from that, depending on the school or the course a student is signing up for, finding the applications and filling them out can take a long time. And what about when they make a mistake while filling them out? Should they go back, make another copy and restart the whole process? No. So if filling out your institution’s form takes more than 45 minutes, think about updating your student registration system. Automation tackles this problem by giving the students the freedom to fill out their application from anywhere on any device; laptop, tablet, smartphone.
Being outside the loop: in the dark
If you don’t know what’s going on with an application you filled out, is that frustrating? It probably is. There are so many questions a student has; did they receive my papers? Are they filled correctly? Lack of awareness is annoying and stressful, and if you can’t soothe those pain points, they’ll lead to you losing a lot of potential students. Often applicants just apply to several schools and go with the one that responds the fastest. To avoid being the slow one, implement automatic notifications to help your staff stay on top of incoming registration forms.
A major nightmare of many going through a registration process is that their forms won’t ever reach their destination. The potential for lost documents and attachments are high when it comes to a paper-based student registration workflow. Failure to deliver high-performing document management is a sure way to lose credibility in the eyes of young applicants and their parents. Switching to an automated enrollment process greatly reduces the possibility of losing a document.
