Technology to transform student financial aid

As a financial aid professional in higher education, you need to manage a lot more than just finances. Comm100 digital omnichannel lets you easily connect with students on live chat to provide guidance, with ticketing and case management allowing you to stay on top of files that need follow-up.

Student Accounts

Removing barriers is key to connecting with today’s students. By introducing Comm100 Live Chat, students can complete tuition payments without ever leaving a familiar chat window.

Case Management

More sophisticated issues require follow-up, and that’s where Comm100 Ticketing comes in. With built-in ticketing and integrations possible with CRMs like Salesforce, Comm100 makes it easier than ever to stay on top of student accounts.

Financial Advising

Finances are often a concern among students, and it’s your role as a financial aid professional to provide guidance. Comm100’s omnichannel platform allows you to connect with students on their terms.

Integrated Communications

It’s not always easy capturing student information during a transaction. By integrating with your digital campus systems, Comm100 Live Chat gives you confidence knowing who you’re communicating with.

Accurate Information

Interpreting and relaying regulations can be a challenge even for seasoned professionals. With a chatbot, you can be confident that students are receiving accurate information every time they reach out.

Supporting Documents

When you need to gather supporting documents from students, live chat can help. With file sharing through live chat, you can send and receive files from visitors on your website through a simple drag and drop interface.

“Our students are mostly 17, 18 or 19 years old, and they naturally find live chat very easy to use.

It’s also very quick for them – they can hop on a chat, ask us a question, and have their answer in a minute – all from their mobile device”

— Derek Gaucher, Coordinator of IT Solutions, Dawson College
