Bangalore, Karnataka Wales (PressExposure) September 07, 2011 -- UK's leading university, the University of Kent has chosen Talisma Corporation as its CRM technology partner. Talisma will help the University of Kent to leverage technology to offer a more enriching experience across all campuses of the University in the UK and overseas, to students, staff, academics and visitors.
The project, to be executed in multiple phases, will cover the admissions process for both graduates and undergraduates in phase one. In phase two, Talisma's CRM will be implemented across the entire University, providing the University with a unified and complete view of the campus eco-system and its constituents.
As part of the project, Talisma will enable the University of Kent to integrate information exchange with the UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) database. UCAS is a central UK body responsible for managing applications to almost all undergraduate degree programmes at UK universities and colleges. Another link enabled by Talisma, with the UKBA (UK Borders Agency), will help the University vet and verify overseas applicants.
'Kent has chosen Talisma because their CRM product has an out-of-the box option directly geared to the Higher Education application processing environment. The platform has an impressive array of functionality which Talisma demonstrated would comprehensively deliver Kent's requirements to improve processing efficiency and give enriched communication with applicants and students. Through the development of a prototype system, Talisma staff have shown the excellent technical and process expertise required to implement a sophisticated solution in a short timescale and high volume operating environment,' said Nicholas Thurston, Senior Projects Officer, University of Kent.
"At Talisma, we believe in agile campuses that thrive on technology. It is our endeavour to partner the University of Kent in all of its CRM technology initiatives. We are confident of providing the University with a strong platform to offer a unique academic experience to students," said Mr Raj Mruthyunjayappa, EMEA Managing Director of Talisma Corporation Ltd.
