Five9 for Higher Education

Reimagine the Student Experience and Deliver Results

Institutions of higher learning need innovative solutions to recruit prospects, support existing students, and keep in touch with alumni. Enrolling new students requires responding rapidly with necessary information, including counselling about financial aid. Reimagining the student experience demands proactive communications to manage the student lifecycle and address any issues—such as recruitment, financial aid, and registration. The Five9 Intelligent Cloud Contact Center empowers your school to communicate with students quickly and effectively through superior omnichannel engagement, AI, workflow automation, and deep integration capabilities.
