TopSchool And Career College Central Webinar Highlights Successful SLM Selection And Implementation Strategy

Denver, CO – July 18, 2012 – TopSchool and Career College Central are hosting a webinar designed to prepare higher education institutions to successfully select and implement the right student lifecycle management (SLM) partner.  Attendees will review a comprehensive list of questions that will help them better understand their current recruitment, retention and placement processes, as well as partner capabilities and solutions.

"There are so many areas along the student lifecycle where schools can realize efficiencies," said Justin Sloan, VP of Customer Solutions at TopSchool.  "However, until they truly understand what questions they should be asking themselves and potential vendors, they often approach the selection and implementation process blindly.  The detailed questions and best practices we will present will put schools on the right path to better understanding their unique needs and finding a partner that can help them efficiently and effectively manage the entire student lifecycle."

The webinar will help schools identify factors they should consider prior to the vendor selection process, once they engage possible vendors and during implementation. Discussion will focus on the following:

  • An internal assessment on where an institution’s resources are currently allocated and how much time is spent on recruitment, retention and placement activities
  • A list of solution questions to determine which partner’s technology, delivery, vision, and customer service approach best meet the school’s needs  
  • An outline that will enable schools to plan for and successfully implement a new solution

"Mapping a Successful SLM Vendor Selection and Implementation Process" takes place on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. MDT.  To register for the free event, please click here.  Additionally, TopSchool’s corresponding white paper is available for free download in the Resources section of the company’s website.
