Technolutions Slate

I am not an end-user but use Slate as an "outsider" since I'm in IT. I use it to verify data coming to and from our SIS PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. That being said, I think it is robust and easy for most to use. It is clearly seen as the "Best in Breed" for CRM/Recruiting/Admissions systems. I am a firm believer in going with such systems. There are strength and power in numbers. Technolutions is rather nimble and responsive with updates and addressing needs.

Cons

Technolutions Slate

  • Probably just the aesthetics of layout.
  • The layout and user friendliness of the mobile app.
  • As much as I love their organic marketing strategy, I would love marketing material to share with other schools while I'm on the road. [Youtube demo, clean social media channels, etc]

Alternatives Considered

Technolutions Slate

We used Ellucian recruit that is based on Microsoft Dynamics, I must say that Slate is much simpler to use and navigate for everyday user. While Dynamics is very powerful and robust tool it is really hard to navigate and keep track of campaigns and prospects. Slate is simplified version of dynamics and better suited for users who are in higher ed, while dynamics is more for "sales" in enterprise world. Education world is different.
