A huge 2018 goal we’ve noticed for campus auxiliary services is integration. We’ve seen a huge push for all of auxiliary services to provide a unified approach when dealing with student satisfaction and department presence.
The most efficient way to accomplish this goal is through a campus branded app, used by students and staff on a daily basis. A campus branded app provides a centralized location for communication, feedback, analytics, and marketing. Most important for auxiliary services is certainly the feedback.
One Location for Everything
Are you trying to provide a more mobile-centric experience for your students, but feel you’re being flooded with options? Stop your search. Students already have limited space on their phones. Asking them to download multiple campus apps will only end in failure. With Hangry’s campus branded app, you can put all auxiliary services initiatives in one place. As a result, providing an easier mobile experience and a unified department presence to your students. This centralized hub for all initiatives makes it easier to incorporate new tech trends like mobile ordering, mobile parking, event purchasing, and more. You will no longer be asking what app should we look into next? But rather, when can we add this feature to our own app?
With a campus branded app, auxiliary services are able to communicate directly to their students. By utilizing direct messaging, push notifications, campus news updates, surveys, reviews, etc, you can continue to build your brand. Above all, this tool is essential for acquiring feedback and analytics to better the student experience. It also allows auxiliary services a pulse on students and staff. Having a centralized location to spread communication and awareness is also a great benefit. Instead of students and staff having to look in multiple locations, you can keep all relevant info in the app. As a result, the campus population will be less likely to miss out on important updates and information.
Building a Community
The higher education system is competitive in nature, since students have so many options to choose from when applying to school. Moving toward a digital friendly environment has now become an expectation of many current and future students. You’d be hard pressed to find a business that hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon. In many cases, campus life is no different when it comes to expecting a mobile friendly digital experience.
With a campus branded app encompassing all auxiliary services, your department is able to build a strong community. Through consistent communication, feedback, and incentives for students and staff, you’re able to leverage the digital world. The mobile experience allows students to become more involved in campus life. Voices get heard, participation rewarded, and overall student experience improves.
In short, a Hangry campus branded app is going to house all of your campus initiatives in one place. Through this simple integration, you will be able to do so much! Drive student behaviour, develop a key campus marketing tool, collect daily data analytics and feedback and ultimately put campus auxiliary services at your student’s fingertips.
