Helping College and Universities Demonstrate How Community Engagement Drives Goals Across the Student Journey

San Francisco, CA — Today PeopleGrove, a SaaS platform provider of highly engaging virtual communities for university prospects, students, and alumni, announced its membership in Slate’s Preferred Partner Program. Powered by Technolutions, Slate is a higher education CRM platform that supports the complete student lifecycle from enrollment management, retention, all the way through to alumni advancement.

“Our partners work tirelessly to engage their communities through PeopleGrove. It is important to connect that activity to outcomes,” said Adam Saven, CEO and Co-Founder of PeopleGrove. “This partnership with Slate allows us to integrate our platform in a way that helps our partners directly show the impact engagement has on their goals.”

As a member of the Slate Preferred Partner program, PeopleGrove is offering its university partners the ability to fully integrate with the Slate CRM and ensure that relevant engagement data is available to those in the institution who need it. 

“We’re thrilled to have PeopleGrove in our preferred partner program,” said Technolutions CEO Alexander Clark. “As institutions evolve the way they support their communities — from inquiry through their alumni journey — tools like PeopleGrove provide unique opportunities for institutions to continue to thrive.”

The benefits leveraging this integration include:

  • Automatic verification of new users who join your PeopleGrove community

  • Management of user types and permissions
  • Up to date contact information in the CRM based on a user’s interaction with PeopleGrove’s best-in-class engagement tools.
  • Specific reporting in the CRM based on objects and data updated in PeopleGrove.

Additionally, membership in the Preferred Partner Program gives PeopleGrove the ability to provide full implementation and on-going support in the use of this integration. 

“We are reaffirming our commitment to serving partners’ needs throughout the student journey,” Saven added. “Our partners have the ability to integrate their platforms with great tools like Slate, all while providing their community with one, single destination for connection.”
