  4. Why? • Warwick is in a relatively healthy recruitment position • But competition, especially global, is intensifying • Clear evidence that competitors have invested heavily in recruitment and marketing • CRM one of a number of measures designed to strengthen the medium/long-term recruitment position of the University

  5. Why? The current situation • We don’t (fully) know who our prospects are • We don’t know who at Warwick they have spoken to • We don’t know what activities at Warwick they have undertaken • We have limited and disjointed information on our prospects • Spreadsheets • SITS • Databases • Post-it notes! • Data fragmented across central providers and departments

  6. YourWarwick • All enquiries via phone / email can be captured in one place • All members of Central / Department Recruitment and Admissions able to view and add to prospects’ records • Reduce the time spent responding to the same questions • Ability to target communications to unlimited segments of our prospects register

  8. Implementation • Consultation and work carried out with e-lab and Comms • Extensive development work carried out by Azorus • Translation of e-lab designs • Population of portal content from current literature / web • Experience of other customers passed on to Warwick • ‘The Art of the Possible’ – Azorus can do attitude • Gatekeepers / Senior Editor roles within SARO • Departmental Editors • Spring 2009 launch

  9. Countdown to Launch • Approve content created by Azorus • Student testimonials created by SARO • Department news – RSS feeds and consultation • All current SARO order and booking forms within system • Fully branded portal and email templates • Implement general communication plan within back-end • Training the trainers – January 2009

  10. Issues • Underpinning Communication plan • Department – Centre interaction • Different systems for different stages of the student life cycle – YourWarwick, MyWarwick, Raiser’s Edge – does this matter? • Appropriateness to all levels and modes of study – UG, PG, PGT; part time/ CPD; HEFP
