Salesforce.org Education Cloud

Well suited:
  1. Groups that need to integrate their CRM with other partners: many education institutions use Salesforce!
  2. Groups with huge student populations now, or expected in the future.
  3. Groups that have resources for custom Salesforce development, like an in-house Salesforce Developer role.
Less appropriate:
  1. If you expect your company/school will have a limited number of students.
  2. If you set up Salesforce to use ONLY Leads or only Contacts, not both. What happens if you have a student re-enroll? How do you handle losing data when converting a Lead to a Contact? If you don't have good answers for these in advance, you'll want to use only Leads or only Contacts to track each student.

We really made Submittable worth the purchase by using it for EVERYTHING. We previously used Adobe Forms for all of our submissions which was difficult for us and the submitters, by replacing all of those with Submittable forms we made everyone's lives easier... I don't see a situation that can't benefit from Submittable.

  • So far, the only thing I can think of is that personalization of the main page is minimal.
  • I wish the email generated by the system could have our email address.

People will respond on time even though Salesforce is such a large organization. This also includes various methods of getting support beyond just calling - they have dedicated reps, chat, chatter, etc that all make the experience more pleasant.

Alternatives Considered

Salesforce.org Education Cloud

Salesforce for Higher Education is the best option out there for managing student accounts. Other programs used are in the dark ages comparatively and this is a great way to engage in a more modern way.

We ultimately selected Submittable because of its ease-of-use, and how willing they were to accommodate our "special situations" without charging us a la carte for additional functionality. The others were several thousand dollars more annually, with LESS functionality and fewer features included.

  • Submittable has had a positive impact on ROI in supporting the AT&T Film Awards. For each of the competitions that we've run through Submittable, we've reached our goal for the number of entries, and the overall quality level of the finalists has been tremendous. We've managed to stay within budget for each edition of the Awards.
