Overall Satisfaction with Conga Composer

We use Conga Composer as our mail merge product in conjunction with Salesforce. Printed correspondence is still of value to us when communicating with parents and prospective college students. Our mailing vary from single letters to multi page/document packets that are mailed with binding admission decisions. Conga Composer allows us to create this correspondence and also to log the activity in the student's individual Salesforce record. We are primarily using it with the Office of Admission; however, we communicate to over 10.000 applicants each year.
  • Allows for logging of activities to student records.
  • Create multi page/multi document packets.
  • Mail merge capabilities.
  • It has improved over the years but there are times when the reports run slowly.
  • I would like to see more of an email functionality.
  • Online tutorials.
  • We have been able to integrate our mailings with the activity history within Salesforce.
  • Integration has been key to allow for our internal users to track mailings and to communicate expected time lines of mailing to our students.
  • We have been able to continue the level of personalization we like to have when working with prospective students.
We chose Conga due to the price point (cost for licenses). It was among the more affordable options but we did not have to sacrifice quality. In addition, the integration with Salesforce is key for us. We are able to connect student interactions and actions with our mailings. We also like how it is user friendly.
Conga works well for us when it comes to personalizing each student's admit packet. The packet of information can have on average 4 pages of personalized information based on a particular status of the application or certain attributes coded in the student's Salesforce record. We are able to streamline the process of printing large scale jobs.
