Augusoft, a student enrollment management software vendor based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has announced a customer referral program. The company provides backend software to help colleges and continuing education businesses manage online enrollment and registration. The referral program provides customers with acknowledgment and rewards for providing Augusoft with a referral for a potential client.
Augusoft has just completed its fifth Continuing Education Survey (non-credit) in late 2018. The survey was sent to almost 5,000 organizations, both customers and non-customers of Augusoft, in order to reach out to the biggest pool of continuing education programs. The survey found that of the non-credit programs, more than half ranked their summer youth programs of making up about one fifth of their overall revenue.
In the survey, more than half of the respondents reported that it is possible to keep track of registrant demographics and emergency contact information in the current process. Only half of the respondents observed the ability to register more than one child per transaction. The same respondents also noted that parents may sign up themselves plus a child in one transaction. Majority of the respondents indicated gathering of additional info with the use of supplemental forms, but only slightly more than half of the respondents indicated the ability to gather this data online during the registration process.
“Our customers typically see a significant increase in the summer youth programs when they have implemented an online student enrollment system,” said Sally Penders, Marketing Manager at Augusoft. “The ease of household profiles in Lumens and the ability to register multiple members of the same household is a key factor for increased revenue.”
In the Augusoft referral program, a customer who provides a reference can be eligible to receive one of the following: an Apple iPad Air 2 with 32GB of memory; an Augusoft User Summit Pass; or 3 hours of customized Lumens training. Only current Augusoft customers will be eligible to submit a referral. Also, the customer referral will not be eligible for the referral program if the referred organization is already an active lead and/or opportunity in Augusoft’s system or they already have an active CE Management RFP/RFI that is in progress.
