How Can Institutions Serve Students Better In Order To Retain Them For The Long-Run?
As universities and colleges have begun to operate more like businesses, customer service has become something else entirely
Customer service is not new to higher education and as student’s expectations rise, this has become an increasingly unmanageable strategy. Facilities are an important factor in students choosing their place of higher education – from living standards in halls, Wi-Fi availability and easily accessible amenities. By reviewing and implementing managed services, institutions can free up staff time and operate more efficiently—while improving the service provided to students.
Efficiency is paramount
Universities are certainly looking after their most popular facilities as a large majority of students described their work facilities including libraries and IT facilities as either good or excellent. These facilities are well looked after because they influence 67 per cent of UK students when choosing a university And, in today’s budget-strapped climate, efficiency becomes a differentiator in and of itself.
