Cloud Pursuit transformed the way we operate. We were looking for off-the-shelf CRM systems and found most of them, either very expensive or built with outdated technology. Cloud Pursuit presented an alternate approach, to develop a product that is suitable for the F&HE market. The CRM made our entire administration process paperless, this included onboarding, enrolment, and attendance, making us much more efficient and preventing any loss of important documentation. It allowed us to accurately monitor the student journey from interest to certification, giving us a full end-to-end view.
We have also been extremely pleased with how user-friendly the platform has been allowing our staff to access it easily via the internet with little training. From a compliance standpoint, it has been a brilliant solution as it comes with built-in data security and GDPR compliance. We are operating a lot more efficiently as a business.
