Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
CollegeBound, a leader in online education marketing, has switched to Connect First’s telecommunications technology and experienced dramatic results.
With over 3 million visitors utilizing their resources on a monthly basis, CollegeBound turned to Connect First to keep up with the call volume. “Connect First was there during the honeymoon phase, but is still offering support nearly a year after the official launch date at CollegeBound,” said Alex Levy of CollegeBound.
In addition to using Connect First’s inbound Automatic Call Distributor (ACD), CollegeBound also has utilized other Connect First solutions including their outbound dialer, cloud routing, interactive voice response (IVR) and call tracking tools, reporting tools, real time telemetry and chat function. Connect First’s comprehensive set of solutions has yielded significant results. “CollegeBound’s dial rate has tripled since taking on Connect First and the reporting tools are significantly better in every way,” shared Levy. “List management has changed drastically, as have the answer rates. Call times have also improved, which is something that nearly every Connect First client will discover. It’s not unusual to see call times reduced from 10 minutes to less than seven minutes in most cases.”
In addition to performance, the price and support from Connect First are “second to none,” according to Levy. The Connect First executive team is excited about the results. “It’s been a great experience working with CollegeBound,” said Connect First Geoff Mina. “Anytime you can help out an organization like CollegeBound that facilitates higher learning for students it’s a plus.”
