Higher Ed CRM Firm TargetX Adds Rutgers, Richmond, Bryant and Towson to List of Schools in the Cloud

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — CRM company TargetX, a leading provider of customer relationship management technology to higher education, has added to the growing list of colleges who rely on its cloud-based system to improve their student recruiting.

Among the latest institutions to select TargetX’s recruitment CRM technology are:

– Bryant University in Rhode Island
– Rutgers University Business School in New Jersey
– Towson University in Maryland
– University of Richmond in Virginia

TargetX offers both technology tools and consulting services to help colleges build relationships with their most important constituencies. Its flagship product is the first CRM built expressly for higher education on the development platform of Salesforce.com, the worldwide leader in CRM and a pioneer in cloud computing.

TargetX’s “Recruitment CRM” helps colleges manage, integrate and automate the process of student recruitment from the first point of contact through enrollment. Among its strengths is built-in electronic communication, including the leading email broadcasting tool in higher education marketing. It is also fully integrated with a powerful event manager and online application.

“Our CRM tool is emerging as the clear choice for schools looking to recruit more efficiently and effectively,” said TargetX CEO Brian Wm. Niles.

Building on its success with recruitment, TargetX last year announced that it was expanding into the advancement and student-retention areas with two new CRM tools in the cloud. The introduction of “Advancement CRM” and “Retention CRM” means colleges can now take advantage of shared systems across the campus, becoming more efficient and cost-effective in their efforts to build relationships with key audiences.

“It’s exciting to see how many colleges are embracing change and opting for a cloud-based recruiting solution like TargetX’s CRM,” said Niles. “It bodes well for our student-retention and advancement tools since IT departments are looking for products that greatly improve efficiency, reduce costs and can be expanded across campus. And that’s what they can look forward to with our Enterprise CRM.”
