TopSchool, a leading SaaS provider of Student Lifecycle Management (SLM) solutions for higher education, has closed the first quarter with a record seven new client contracts signed. TopSchool’s SLM is gaining solid traction in the market mainly because it goes beyond the capabilities of a traditional student information system (SIS), putting more administrative control into the hands of the school itself.
"The schools we are signing are experiencing tremendous enrollment growth, and many have reached capacity with their current home grown or legacy systems," said Matthew Schnittman, president and CEO of TopSchool. "These schools are coming to us because our system not only scales to meet their needs, but it also simplifies the entire student information management process. Our next generation solution allows them to access and report on all student information from a central location, giving them the tools and insight to better manage and plan for growth."
TopSchool’s open and flexible SLM system is delivered in a Software-as-Service model, helping schools lower costs, reduce IT complexity and capitalize on best-of-breed applications. The comprehensive system includes a customizable student portal, an easy-to-use CRM component, a robust SIS, and an intelligent reporting suite, eliminating the need for a school to adopt numerous systems that can absorb time, money and resources.
A few of TopSchool’s newest first quarter contracts include: Australia’s Endeavour College of Natural Health, Performance Training Institute and UNAD Florida.
Endeavour College of Natural Health
TopSchool’s solution will seamlessly integrate with Endeavour College’s existing systems, enabling the school to manage more data, more efficiently and more cost effectively across all six of its campuses.
According to John Feenie, CEO of Endeavour College, "TopSchool brings a level of flexibility we just didn’t see in any other provider. It will easily configure to support our delivery models and term structures, and its reporting capabilities will allow us to simply create and manage the reports we need from everyday course management activities to big picture accreditation needs."
Performance Training Institute
TopSchool is helping Performance Training Institute more efficiently manage information by eliminating their use of multiple databases and giving their teams more time to focus on short and long term growth opportunities.
"TopSchool’s system will allow us to create custom reports on almost any parameters, enabling us to more effectively track and better understand student and overall business data, which will help shape the growth and direction of our programs," said Mieke Gibson, COO of PTI.
UNAD Florida selected TopSchool’s SLM system to help grow and manage programs by automating candidate and student tracking processes, as well as providing the ability to pull key data into custom and standard reports.
"From its scalability to its integration with our accounting and learning management systems, TopSchool’s SLM system will make our entire operation more efficient now and in the future," said German Posada, business development manager of UNAD Florida.
