Victoria University is one of seven universities in New Zealand. we’re based in Wellington, we have about 17,000 students., Arlo has empowered us to be more responsive to our clients.
Arlo keeps the customer informed. Things they need to know before the course, confirming the registration, it makes the enrollment process really simple.
Arlo has improved our work phenomenally from going from a really manual system where we received online payments that we would still have to process through our Eftpos machine by punching in numbers. So that has made it amazingly efficient that people can go online, pay online with their credit card and receive a receipt and their course information automatically without us having to touch it.
It’s really important that the system is easy for our customers to use and easy to navigate around. And also that there’s a really good support team in place at Arlo.
We’ve actually been able to be in direct communication with the client through the mobile app, using text messaging to be able to communicate with them instantly and keep them up to date. And the feedback we’ve had from our customers is that our communication has been fantastic.
I definitely recommend it because it’s so easy, so user-friendly and so easy to use. Being a cloud-based system there’s constant updates that happen to improve the performance and add new features to it. Because the platform, in the way it’s been designed, it’s a very familiar interface, it’s quite similar to Outlook and other Windows applications that people are used to using so it’s very intuitive in the way it works.
The functionality has been thought-through, and for the kind of businesses that are running events, dealing with customers, dealing with registrations, it just makes life so much easier.
