Get Students Answers at Their Fingertips

Ivy offers real-time support to students at any hour on their mobile devices, to help them stay connected to every department on campus.

Create Smart Inbound and Outbound Campaigns

SMS nudging allows you to create outbound campaigns that send texts to students at scale. Set reminders and notifications to keep students on track so they never miss a deadline. Two-way texting allows students to reply to nudges while seeking all the information and help they need through their mobile device.

Improve your admissions funnel

Use target messaging to answer student questions in a timely manner using workflows that increase conversions and improve retention across campus. Ivy chatbots pay attention to the whole conversation, and understand every last detail so students never have to repeat themselves. This allows students to chat the way they would with a human and move their way down the funnel.

Drill down on students with greater need
Ivy’s SMS campaigns allow you to do more with less. Instead of placing hundreds or thousands of outbound calls, institutions can send a mass text message to students who missed an application deadline or payment and find students who need more help. This allows you to give more personalized attention to the right students while allowing your staff to work more efficiently.
