  • Visitor Profiling – The Sitecore DMS allows marketers to profile a student into a set category based on the pages that are visited by the student on the University's website. And basis this profile the University then goes ahead and showcases the courses that are more relevant to the student.
  • Email Campaigns - The business users can create highly effective email campaigns that can be triggered at the registration process and be used to track the student's interest and activities and send timey reminders and updates accordingly.
  • Retargeting -If a student seemed interested in some course then we can have the system automated so it sends relevant information about that particular course to that particular student. This simple task could help point that student in the right direction causing him/her to make the decision as to whether or not to join the course.

Benefits
