Technology to transform student counseling

As a student counseling professional in higher education, you need to be ready for anything. Comm100’s digital omnichannel platform allows you to facilitate difficult conversations over live chat, video, or voice so that students can reach out however they feel comfortable.

Private Conversations

Digital communication in student counseling requires care to individual privacy. Comm100 is committed to protecting the privacy of your students with a secure platform they can trust.

Integration Support

Effective counseling requires easy access to student records and course selection details. Comm100 Omnichannel can be integrated with CRM platforms and other third-party applications to provide in-window access to scheduling details and academic records.

Facilitating Dialogue

Counseling can often require a dialogue among various parties. When those conversations can’t happen in person, Comm100’s omnichannel platform supports video and voice chat to encourage more personal conversations.

Triaging Requests

Each student’s needs are unique, which is why it’s important to stay on top of requests. With Comm100’s ticket and case management, you can know that student requests will see a proper resolution.

Reduce Student Waits

In a busy school, budgeting time to speak to every student can be a challenge. With a task bot helping to take student information, students will see reduced waiting times to have their questions answered.

Answering Regular Requests

Providing strong resources for students is key to reducing unnecessary counseling sessions. A chatbot can easily handle most student questions so that there’s more space available to tackle complex issues.

“The help and guidance from Comm100 during the development of our chatbot has been fantastic!”
