Higher Education Data Services
An open source Contact Management System was installed and customized to permit the School of Education in a large university to centralize communications with their alumni population. Legacy alumni data from a variety of sources was cleaned and imported, and department staff were trained on use of the new software.
The staff is now able to better organize correspondence and develop a communications history with their alumni base, using the web-based software. There are no licensing costs for the open source software were and the system requires low ongoing maintenance to utilize.
