It is being used by our Admissions Dept. There is some use by other offices: Pharmacy/PA, Fine Arts, Financial Aid.

It is used for virtually all admissions/recruiting processing: communications, applicant ranking, event management, outreach/marketing.
  • Being able to create a standard communications flow to/from applicants.
  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Query functions are fairly robust, but easy for end-users to use.
  • Some of their table structures are overly complex; don't necessarily conform to usual standards in relational databases. This is being addressed, but some oddities still exist.
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.

We needed a better CRM solution to attract new student population. We have worked with with different solutions/vendors on the past, but communication was just no effective and previous solutions were just too complicated and inefficient from administrative prospective. We needed something simple to have better impact and make processes on administration side easier and more effective. Provide staff with something that will allow them to better utilize their time.
  • Further impact
  • Easier communication
  • Easy to get going
  • It is really hard to mess something up
  • Admin interface looks like it is from 90s, internet evolved ever since
  • Integration with major student information systems (they are fairly new so I guess it's ok)
  • Their man developer is person who started company and he coded about 30 new features during their conference over night and published to production. It is great he is guru and he can do this, but there is no testing and what happens if something happens to him, no other developer have idea what was done in such a short period of time so it present a huge risk
If you need a better way to communicate with students and have further impact this is great solution because it handles email communication exceptionally well.

Slate is being used by our university for the entire admissions process and for communication to prospective and applied/admitted students. It also being used as a contact database for organization contacts from churches to schools. It is being used for event management from overnight events to appointments and walk-ins. It is used for communication logging from sms messaging to phone conversations.
  • Their innovation and frequent release of new features.
  • Their ease of integration that makes use by any school absolutely customized.
  • Their invitation to be part of a large conversation on slate. [Their Twitter feed on the dashboard regarding all things 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]
Any type of admissions/university scenario is going to be where Slate is well suited.

Because of its customization opportunities, we haven't found too many scenarios where it isn't appropriate. Maybe working from the app on a cell phone? i.e. making calls from a query list because of the clunky mobile format?

We use Slate as our primary resource for assisting students in the application process for our university. We also use it for communication purposes, travel planning, monitoring communication, etc. It is primarily used by our department, but we are slowly helping other departments move towards using Slate. It addresses the issues of needing multiple software and resources to do our jobs and instead gives us a one-stop shop.
  • Allows user to maintain good track of communication that one is having with the customer.
  • Allows the creation of specific queries that we can use to reach students in a more unique way,
  • It is extremely user-friendly!
  • It could provide more ways to communicate, such as direct message or instant message if students are online.
  • It could insert tutorials within the app, so that if you don't understand something you could have easy access to help.
Slate has changed the culture of our office and we are hoping it will eventually change the culture of our entire university. It is easy to understand, efficient, and a lifesaver! We are able to do our jobs and do them better than ever before.
