University admissions chatbot, a pre-clearing dream
Universities deal with a unique set of circumstances. They have a limited number of courses with a limited number of seats available. They need to book these courses as soon as possible, effectively selling them to prospective students.
Universities also have a short timeframe to do this. Clearing, one of the university's most stressful time of the year, is admission at high speed. During this period, students frantically try to sign up for courses -- an opportunity they cannot miss.
Each year, universities hire hundreds of staff members to supplement their team and deal with the influx of enquiries.
Discover how a UK university used a pre-clearing, admissions chatbot to deal with the enquiries.
Dealing with a vast workforce
Universities employ a vast workforce of not only teachers, but teaching assistants, cleaning crew, security team, and more. Like most companies of their size, they struggle to service the entire staff quickly and efficiently.
Like many other companies, universities are turning to chatbots to supplement their HR systems.
An HR chatbots helps them by reducing the time it takes employees to find information, speeding up internal processes, and freeing up the HR staff's time.

Unsurprisingly, universities have to adapt. Quickly.
The latest generations, the so-called digital natives, have high expectations in terms of technology. To support these students in a way that is coherent with these expectations, universities are turning to chatbots.
