Education Call Center
Attracting students to your campus programs in an increasingly competitive industry presents new challenges for the higher education system. Partnering with an education call center gives you the tools needed to engage students, from prospects to enrollees to alumni.
Education Call Centers Create Excellent Student Experiences
Education institutions across the country are facing increasing challenges to meet targeted enrollment numbers under shrinking budgets. Contracting with responsive reps who supply information on-demand can give your campus the edge that is needed to capture a larger market share. When you outsource basic answering services, promotional call responses, career track advisement or fundraising campaigns, then your staff has more time to focus on tasks that advance your program goals.
Industry-Leading Education Call Center Services
Institutions of higher learning rely on Ansafone to provide industry-leading education call center services that boost student recruitment efforts, lower abandonment rates, streamline enrollment processes and increase sales conversions. Running 24-hour standby customer support services, Ansafone’s highly skilled bilingual agents regularly field 5,000 calls daily in our education call centers to provide more information on programs to prospective students.

Our call center education specialists receive extensive coaching in student recruitment strategies and enrollment support to help you reach your mission-critical goals. We have the technological tools to staff all communication touchpoints, including phone, email, live chat or social media. Offering potential and current students options for reaching you through their desired platform strengthens your credibility as an organization that cares about providing a high-quality education experience.
One of our specialties in the higher education industry is conducting surveys of financial aid rewards to ensure compliance with the Department of Education’s policies and internal campus procedures. We validate that every student clearly understands the amount of their loan, the cost of each credit and transferability of credits. We also provide a full review of the financial aid forms relating to private and institutional financing. Incomplete assessments are routed back to the financial aid department for review.
Delivering Essential Customer Service Support
Our call center education support services extend beyond post-secondary institutions. We can partner with K-12 schools and regional districts to design smart interactive voice response (IVR) systems for incoming calls and roll out automated notifications for attendance, events, meetings and emergency procedures. We can step in at a moment’s notice to efficiently manage overflow calls during peak times or to compassionately route calls during an unexpected crisis.
Companies selling education products also benefit from our expertise in retail call center services. Ansafone sales agents, who undergo in-depth training on your brand and product line, participate in a competitive incentive program that propels your business toward higher profits.
