Are you finding it difficult to keep in touch with your students and alumni? Is your database filled with outdated contact records? In an increasingly data–driven world, data quality is an issue educational institutions can no longer ignore. Stay in touch with students and recent grads with our data enhancement service.
Data entry errors and variations in data result in lost opportunities to communicate with students, alumni, and faculty. Many organizations are unaware that so much of their contact information is missing or stale until it is too late.
Heres how you can save money by keeping your student and alumni contact records current.
