Ellucian CRM Recruit or Meritto?

It’s not the right question to ask

Why? Because that’s not enough for you to make a decision. You should consider the following questions before choosing a comprehensive enrollment management platform.
  • How well does the platform fit and adapt to your team’s needs?
  • How user-friendly is it and how easy is it to adopt?
  • Does the platform have a dedicated customer success team to support you?
  • Does it provide essential functions without requiring too many integrations?
  • Does it offer a mobile application that is easy to use?
  • What advanced features does it offer to enable effective reporting?

Here’s the fundamental difference between
LeadSquared and Meritto

LeadSquared approached the CRM market with a top-down ideology and built one solution to cater to most industries, resulting in a disjointed user experience for industries as the features were generic and lacked depth as they are not industry-specific.

The product lacks the customizations and utility that sales, marketing, admission, finance, and operations teams need in educational organizations whether EdTech Companies, Coaching & Training Institutes, Study Abroad Consultants, or K12 Schools, to stay on top of their enrollments. Since it offers the same product, repackaged at outset, educational organizations often end up tangled in technology. It doesn’t stop there as educational organizations are expected to rely on third-party integration for most of the functionalities.

5 reasons why Meritto is the best alternative to Ellucian CRM Recruit

One comprehensive suite to manage all things enrollments

It’s always important to consider the capabilities and complexities of each solution. Meritto offers a complete, unified solution with a 360° view of potential learners and students, making it easier to use and understand. Your sales, counseling marketing, finance, operation, and enrollment teams no longer have to juggle multiple tools or spend time adapting to the product. Whether it’s Marketing Automation, Enrollment Portal, Document Manager, or an Integrated Payment Platform, Meritto provides everything in one comprehensive platform.

Easy-to-setup, easier-to-use UI

When it comes to choosing a platform for admissions and enrollment management, user-friendliness is crucial. Meritto offers an easy-to-setup and easier-to-use UI, making it the preferred choice for many institutions. In contrast, Ellucian CRM Recruit’s legacy tool can be challenging due to its bad UI experience. New users may require extensive training to get the most out of the software.

But with Meritto, you’ll receive dedicated migration and training support to get up and running quickly and efficiently. The intuitive and super easy-to-use features are purpose-built for your enrollment teams, which boosts adoption and increases productivity. In fact, after the initial setup and training, you could run your enrollments on auto-pilot, saving you time and resources.

Customer Success at Heart

At Meritto, we believe that customer success is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we offer a dedicated team of customer success experts who are committed to helping you succeed, regardless of your plan. We’re here for you when you need us, and we’ll support you wherever you need it.

Unfortunately, Ellucian CRM Recruit falls short when it comes to customer success. Their support system often requires you to raise tickets repeatedly or puts you on hold when you’re reaching out for help. This can be frustrating and time-consuming, taking away valuable resources from your enrollment efforts.

Enrolling students on the go has never been easier

With 360° visibility of your enrollment funnel, you can quickly assess the health of your enrollments from anywhere, anytime with Meritto Mobile CRM. It’s where you could get real-time analytics and detailed reports to track every aspect of your enrollment process, from inquiry to enrollment, all with a few taps on your phone. In contrast, Ellucian CRM Recruit lacks a mobile-friendly application, limiting your ability to manage your enrollments on the go.

Turn data into actionable insights

With its custom report creation feature, teams can analyze enrollment data that is specific to their education organization’s needs. Unlike Ellucian CRM Recruit, Meritto allows teams to create reports based on geography, program, or time period. Plus, Meritto provides real-time data, enabling teams to make informed decisions based on the most up-to-date information available. In contrast, Ellucian CRM Recruit may suffer from lag times in reporting data, which can hinder teams from making quick decisions.
