Challenge

  • Lack of visibility within Workforce Solutions
  • Managers relied on lagging indicators of teams’ performance
  • No feedback from prospects about what was most useful to them

Focus on a career-connected education across the nation

Despite being a pioneer in the educational space, University of Phoenix outreach teams within Workforce Solutions faced challenges in presenting clear information to potential corporate partners interested in working with the University. Managers often relied on lagging indicators of their teams’ performance. Student-facing advisors experienced missed opportunities to improve efficiencies. Marketing teams that produced information on academic programs for prospective students often lacked visibility into what content was most helpful in the field with Workforce Solutions teams. It became evident that efficiencies would help improve University of Phoenix outreach processes.

Solution

Instant access to the right information, at the right time

University of Phoenix initially started with a small ClearSlide pilot with which they experienced great success. From there, they rolled it out seamlessly to the rest of the company.

“Everyone loved it, ClearSlide really helped us break down communication barriers with our corporate partners.”. Kristi also praised ClearSlide’s outstanding user support during the onboarding process: “They offered a huge amount of customer support; one-on-one training for each and every employee via email, presentations, and over the phone.”

  • ClearSlide provided insights into the activity of the team
  • ClearSlide gave the team a better understanding of the needs of prospects
  • Managers got real-time sales engagement data of their reps

Result

ClearSlide helps University of Phoenix corporate partners understand the importance of a workforce-ready graduate

The positive effects of the adoption of ClearSlide were quickly evident across departments at University of Phoenix. Workforce Solutions teams benefit from instant email analytics, driving calls to action with prospective corporate partners interested in workforce development solutions at the University. ClearSlide allows University teams to see which partners viewed materials and when they accessed information. This allowed teams to prioritize their communications, contacting engaged partners, and shortening their workforce development partnership cycle as a result.

“ClearSlide helps us coach them to better practices and make bigger picture decisions, and ultimately reach more employers.”

ClearSlide also allowed University of Phoenix to engage and present to partners with the download-free Viewers Link. Virtual meetings eliminate travel demands and expenses as well shorten the conversation. Now University of Phoenix’s team is able to make better use of their time in interacting with students and their more than 2,500 corporate partners.

University of Phoenix’s Workforce Solutions administrators have greater visibility into their team’s productivity and activity thanks to ClearSlide’s real-time engagement metrics. They are also able to offer better support to account for users’ day-to-day activities. Leaders are able to see which corporate partners are most engaged at any point in time. This new insight has enabled University of Phoenix teams to reach more companies needing help with their human capital needs.

ClearSlide is an essential tool for University of Phoenix, and a significant reason that teams have doubled their engagement with their corporate partners since its adoption. ClearSlide is an integral part of the University’s mission to provide access to higher education opportunities that enable students and employers to develop the skills necessary to achieve professional goals. ClearSlide has improved efficiencies, too, allowing University of Phoenix teams to communicate the importance and benefits of a career-connected education for corporate partners and employers.

ClearSlide has also proven to be an asset for the marketing teams that offer career-connected academic programs to students looking for insight into specific career fields. They are now able to vet collateral, publish content and use insights throughout University of Phoenix campaigns. ClearSlide helps simplify mass communication to employers and other corporate partners.
