New data dashboards and application programming interface to boost financial aid awarding and fundraising results
September 27, 2018—Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL), the leading provider of higher education enrollment, student success, and fundraising solutions, has launched the first in a series of enhancements to optimize data integration, management, and decision making for financial aid awarding and fundraising.
The first, RNL Smart View, provides an interactive dashboard that delivers actionable insights for financial aid awarding. Its state-of-the-art, web-based user interface gives RNL’s campus clients more intelligence about and control over their awarding strategy. The dashboard is being rolled out to the 300 colleges and universities using RNL Advanced FinAid Services.
“RNL has been a pioneer in the field of strategic financial aid management for 25 years,” said Josh Robertson, senior vice president for product strategy at RNL. “With RNL Smart View, we are adding the best in modern data accessibility and management to build on our quarter-century of innovation in data-driven financial aid awarding.”
In addition, the firm is also rolling out its first application programming interface (API) for its industry-leading fundraising calling software, RNL CAMPUSCALL. This open, extensible API is a key first step in integrating RNL CAMPUSCALL with an institution’s CRM. Upcoming enhancements from RNL will complete this integration, vastly improving data management and efficiency in alumni outreach.
“These are the first steps in a series of innovations and enhancements that will enable institutions to make strategic decisions more quickly than ever,” said Sumit Nijhawan, president and CEO of RNL. “By integrating with key systems and providing actionable, manageable data at the fingertips of campus leaders, colleges and universities will be fully equipped to keep pace with a rapidly changing higher education marketplace.”
