Challenge

Email wasn't getting UW HELP the results they wanted when it came to engaging with students. As a result, UW HELP decided they needed to move away from email, and start sending messages via the channel their students actually use: SMS texting.

Solution

UW HELP chose Trumpia because it is the only solution that could set up automated campaigns to engage with different students based off their interests and qualifications. In the end, UW HELP was blown away by the success of the program, with over 22,500 students opting in to receive these updates!

“ We couldn't be happier with the way Trumpia helped us engage students throughout the application process. Being able to automatically send individualized reminders to students, instead of a generic mass one, has been a real plus for us. This has enabled us to help thousands of students get the registration and scholarship information they need on time.”
