This is an excellent system for any college/university or scholarship provider that offers a large volume of scholarships to a high number of applicants. The price point might be a little high for a smaller school/provider and may not be worthwhile if their numbers are lower.

It's well suited if you're a Windows user. They're still working on the Mac updates. It's very helpful if you want to integrate more of your emails into your Salesforce system and want to capture all of that more accurately. For our organization, capturing conversations and documents is very vital, so it made a lot of sense. We're a small team and it works well for us, but I think it could work just as properly for a larger team too. It's less appropriate if you don't really care about the email to Salesforce functionality or haven't really thought about it before. For us, it was a huge gap and need and it really addressed it.

Cons

  • Some users may like a bit more customization
  • If it's not currently a thing, an "if, then" algorithm for the general application would be helpful
  • Easier searching in their client resource portal

Very easy to use. Everything opens in a familiar interface right inside the google apps sidebar.It brings in salesforce records, so as long as you know google apps / gmail and salesforce you'll be all set.It's point and click.

The plugin is installed inside your internet browser as an extension/add-on.It can be found in most add on stores and is easy to install. Usually just a few clicks.It handles authorization for you once you sign in, and then takes care of all the rest.It couldn't be easier to get working right out of the box.You're up in running in less than 5 minutes.

Alternatives Considered

At the time that we made the switch, NextGen was not able to offer the option that committee reviewers could rank a student and that their ranking could carry over into multiple scholarships. We already had over 70 committee reviewers and the process to review some of the more general scholarship applicants was taking more than 10 hours. The AcademicWorks System allows each applicant to be ranked by a number of committee reviewers (you set the number of reviewers) one time and the score can be propagated across multiple scholarships. This is an efficient use of the reviewers time and keeps the time commitment manageable.

Return on Investment

  • It has provided a positive ROI in our scholarship management, without having to outsource this function in our department.
  • The help we get from the support team is phenomenal that yearly set up can be done with a few days.
  • For what we get done with it, it is a good investment.
