BOSTON and PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison International today announced it has acquired TargetX, in a move that will simultaneously broaden Liaison's reach and consolidate some of higher ed's most popular tools under one platform.
"Liaison is committed to serving the full student lifecycle," shared George Haddad, Founder and CEO of Liaison. "Together, we will complete the full lifecycle solution — reaching potential applicants earlier and engaging students, not only after they enter the classroom, but when they are about to enter the workforce and beyond. TargetX's proven solutions will complement our existing enrollment marketing efforts and their retention software will help us take the next step in realizing this goal. We're excited to work with their passionate, forward-thinking team to drive higher education forward."
Liaison's solutions, including their Centralized Application Service (CAS), Enrollment Marketing Platform (EMP) and recently acquired SlideRoom, are already utilized by more than 31,000 programs on over 1,100 campuses. For more than 25 years, Liaison has been a catalyst for their member programs to expand their applicant pools and simultaneously streamline the efficacy of their admissions back offices.
During this same period, TargetX's CRM emerged as a leader in recruitment and retention software, specifically built on the Salesforce platform. "Transforming the way that colleges and universities support their prospects, students and alumni has long driven our work at TargetX," added Sasha Peterson, CEO of TargetX.
