Contact data management solutions for higher education helps identify duplicate contacts, out-of-date records, and easily pinpoint data errors.

Higher education institutions are tasked with engaging students and graduates. Donation efforts, networking events, alumni workshops, sponsorship activities, and more, all depend on accurate and up-to-date contact records to ensure communications reach the right people.

Eliminate outdated or invalid addresses, emails, and phone numbers from your admissions and alumni database.

Colleges and universities have a deep repository of student records. In order to maintain a relationship with these students, it’s in the institution’s best interest to keep an accurate and updated contact database. Addresses and emails are particularly prone to inaccuracy, due to the life events that follow graduation.

Thousands of addresses and emails are entered and processed through a database. Experian Data Quality can validate records at point-of-capture and continue to update even the most aged of student records so that you are always maximizing your communication efforts.

Reduce address and email errors
