Personalize Student Outreach
Integrating your CRM or SIS data allows you to segment your audiences and build targeted communications to ensure that your messages hit the right mark at the right time. By sending messages that are tailored to each student, you can limit opt-out rates and improve response rates. Message is a preferred partner of Ellucian and Salesforce and can be found on the AppExchange.
Schedule Texts with a Message Calendar
Use Message’s texting calendar to connect with students, manage everyday communications, coordinate campaigns and avoid sending recipients too many messages at once.

Manage your workload by scheduling and automating responses. Using chatbot functionality designed for higher education, you can respond to common student questions and replies about topics such as admissions and financial aid deadlines, registration, or requirements like GPA and course work.

Key Features for the Modern Administrator
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Today’s students expect SMS text messages from college and universities to go beyond plain text. Modern Campus Message enables institutions to send images, videos, links and GIFs. However you want to get your message out, we have the tools to do it.
Consider our AI-powered Virtual Advisor your personal assistant. Use it to answer frequently-asked questions and provide responses in real time. This highly technical chatbot can accurately judge whether or not it understands the question and will only respond to messages it feels confident answering.
Our Message Inbox automatically sorts incoming texts from students so you know what needs your attention. This allows you to prioritize students who need help fast, rather than spending time browsing messages that don't need a response.
Determine what data you want to use with your contacts, how you want it structured and how it's best incorporated with your CRM or SIS. With this in mind, your team can customize contact views to fit your needs.
