IVR Solution for Student Retention

With Scaller IVR, faculty and administrators can reach out to students very quickly and identify at-risk students during critical times. Personalized messages or instructions can be sent and
real-time acknowledgement and feedback is collected through the student retention IVR system.

Scaller IVR provides academic staff with at-a-glance reporting on students' level of risk and commitment.  Students experiencing difficulty in any area will be flagged. This empowers facilitators to focus time and attention on those students requiring their support, decreasing their levels of stress or uncertainty and connecting at-risk students with existing support services and resources.
