AcademicWorks

We manage over 200 applications online, and could definitely take on more. If you only manage a low number - this would still be great software, but you may not need this. Also, if you have very specific applications, this might not be the best fit. However, if most of your applications are the same and just vary with some specific questions - this is perfect!

Pros

  • Customer service
  • Sorting of student applications per scholarship opportunity
  • The cycle review in order to set up the next application cycle was always great!

  • Way of connecting people
  • Way that it restricts access to user records

Cons

  • Ability to personalize applications - we serve many companies, and we get requests all the time to use their logo, but we can't do that in AcademicWorks.
  • Selective reviews - some review committees don't want to review specific parts of applications, but we can't pick and choose which questions are reviewable for specific opportunities.

  • It's definitely the UI
  • Can add lot of other features, where they can get in touch with them using their own chat application, for instance.

We used Award Spring and Smarter Select in the past.

Return on Investment

  • We had a 24% increase in applications received after the first year
  • We had a 10% increase in scholarship dollars awarded
  • We had an increase in scholarship funds opened, including companies we weren't able to accommodate before.

  • The UI is not really improved, which has a huge scope for improvement
  • Wish there is a in-built chat or some sort of mechanism to communicate with the alumni
  • Great algorithm that's running behind though
