DENVER, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TopSchool, a leading SaaS provider of Student Lifecycle Management (SLM) solutions for higher education, is expanding its reach into the international higher education market, enabling colleges and universities to easily access and manage geographically disperse, multi-campus student information from one location. TopSchool will be exhibiting at the upcoming Association of Colleges Annual Conference in Birmingham, U.K., and continues to add international clients to its roster.
Hibernia College, located in Dublin, recently chose TopSchool because it needed to integrate its disparate systems into one. The College's approach to education was forward thinking, and it needed a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that matched. With TopSchool, Hibernia College no longer has to store records locally on individual computers, but rather has an efficient system that is easily accessible for its staff and large population of international faculty.
"Between our CRM, LMS and paper student records, we needed to simplify things," said Lars Smith, vice president of Business Development at Hibernia. "With TopSchool, we know we are moving forward and will operate more efficiently. We can manage the entire student lifecycle, and more importantly, use the data we collect to deliver an even better student experience."
As TopSchool looks to bring its SaaS solution to more international institutions, the company will be at the Association of Colleges Conference, which takes place November 15th - 17th. TopSchool will be exhibiting in booth F10. The event draws more than 1,500 CEOs, governors and senior management in the higher education space.
"Because our SaaS model is applicable to colleges that want to manage student information on a global scale, the international market presents a great opportunity for us," said Justin McMorrow, co-founder and Chief Customer Officer of TopSchool. "As we talk to more and more institutions around the world, there is a clear need for a SaaS solution like ours to help these schools streamline student data management."
TopSchool's SLM system simplifies the way colleges and universities collect, access, report on and use student information to drive stronger recruitment, retention and placement. The system easily integrates with other third party applications, such as a school's LMS, and it complies with EU data protection rules.
TopSchool (www.topschoolinc.com) built the first SaaS student administrative system in higher education to address the key aspects of the student lifecycle. The company's Student Lifecycle Management (SLM) system goes beyond the capabilities of traditional college student information systems, and includes a customizable student portal, easy-to-use CRM and SIS components, and an intelligent reporting suite. Schools can easily manage all student information from recruiting through retention in a central location, and they can deliver more student services more efficiently. The TopSchool system gives student-centric institutions the power to direct their own administrative tools, empowering them to drive growth, reduce costs and meet accountability requirements.
