Technology to transform continuing education

As a continuing education professional, you need to accommodate students who may be working professionals. Comm100 connects all your digital channels through omnichannel to provide support flexibility across devices and platforms.

Support Availability

Be more responsive to continuing education students by being everywhere at once. Omnichannel connects your digital channels so that students have more ways to connect.

Expanded Hours

With professional students who may be working during the day, increased support availability becomes key. A bot can provide the after-hours support your students need and take messages for support staff to follow up with when they’re back online.

Reduced Barriers

Continuing education students may need real-time help but lack the confidence to reach out over video or voice. Live chat gives students an easy way to get help while working through assignments.

Expanded Capability

Keeping up with course delivery across multiple schools can be hard. Omnichannel and chat concurrency mean that Comm100 can easily facilitate communication with prospects from multiple schools.

Immediate Answers

When students need answers fast, chatbots can deliver. A single chatbot can respond to an unlimited number of students simultaneously and without delay, any time of day.

Get to Know Your Students

With a unified agent console, it’s easier than ever to capture student contact info through chat so that you have a more complete picture of who your students are.

“The beauty of Comm100 is that every channel can be connected into one platform so we can connect with and support more students, more efficiently.”

— Lachlan Todd, Communications & Systems Coordinator, Thompson Rivers University
