Yielding

Call to New Intake, Prevent Summer Melt.

Onboarding

Calls to New Students, Prepare for arrival on campus.

Retention

Calls to Students 3-4 weeks into new term, Survey identifying areas of need.

Graduation or Dropout

Follow up calls to Students, "Why didn't you return?"

Did you know that in a recent survey 42% of millennials said they would rather clean a toilet than speak to an agent on the phone? 

What  that means for higher education is that you can benefit from an end-to-end  interactive automated voice solution (IVR) that allows students to complete routine registration steps, make payments, and even get information about  programs or services, without ever having to speak to an agent. A well-designed, user-friendly IVR speaks to the millennial’s need to self-serve.

Testimonials

"Within the first few days of IVR calls, a student was identified that was already looking to exit the program after just 3 weeks of classes. Had we not used the IVR that student would have been gone from the school before we even knew there was a problem."
Avila University
"OCAD U considers Scaller a key component of its overall retention strategy. Just by making the call to students, we see a significant impact in increased retention year over year. Scaller is easy to use, cost effective, and makes a real difference in student retention."
Kelly Dickinson - OCAD University

More About Scaller

A Cost-effective Solution for Student Retention

With Scaller, student retention IVR, faculty and administrators can reach out to students very quickly and determine each student’s needs during critical times. Personalized messages or instructions can be sent and real-time acknowledgement and feedback is collected.
Scaller provides academic staff with at-a-glance reporting on students' level risk and commitment. Students experiencing difficulty in any area are flagged. This empowers facilitators to focus time and attention on those at-risk students and connect them with existing resources and support services.

In interactive voice response (IVR) solutions, the technical side of automatic speech recognition (ASR) has matured to a point where correctly capturing spoken input is very reliable. Now a major challenge is creating intuitive and efficient voice user interfaces (VUI) to properly harness this technology as a business-driving tool. Developing an effective VUI involves a number of activities that a typical IVR software developer may not have the time or expertise to tackle. This is where Pronexus IVR Speech Consulting services can help you succeed. We can design a new VUI from the ground up, edit and optimize an existing voice application, or even adapt an IVR (touchtone) system to migrate it effectively to get all the advantages of a VUI.

VUI Design

  • Gather IVR task analysis/requirements
  • Interpret requirements into sample dialogs for demonstration (user-centered design approach)
  • Develop call flow and dialog design (typically as a Visio® and Word® document)
  • Produce a list of IVR prompts (have them professionally recorded, if desired)
  • Develop and tune grammars

VUI Review

  • Analyze an existing IVR application's call flow and dialogs for inconsistencies or weaknesses
  • Assess usability to point out likely problems
  • Produce a report of suggested changes to optimize VUI

Tuning Services

  • Analyze an existing application's dialogs and grammars
  • Re-evaluate an existing call flow's success in achieving its goal
  • Optimize recognition parameters
