Disconnected iModules-based portal sent alumni engagement to undesirable low
Towson University was using an iModules-based alumni portal that saw overall engagement dwindle without showing the potential to improve. The platform led to user experiences that were impersonal and irrelevant. Towson’s Office of Alumni Relations desired a revamped portal that was both personalized and engaging for its alumni.
Create an alumni community that enables collaboration, ease of use and scalability
Towson underwent a digital transformation that fostered alumni advancement by driving engagement and collaboration. Leveraging 7Summits’ Alumni Engagement Bolt, Towson deployed a one-stop, personalized, mobile-enabled solution called “Tiger Connect.” It provides quick, easy access to the content, tools and support alumni need to get–and stay–engaged.
Increased alumni engagement in a centralized, personalized community
Tiger Connect allows alumni to connect and collaborate in new and innovative ways while increasing overall adoption and engagement. In addition to significantly higher levels of interaction, the portal helped Towson optimize the user experience and drive value.
