BRISBANE, 4 September 2020.
Leading Brisbane edtech, Cohort Go, is offering education agents a unique opportunity to integrate their market-leading student services directly into agency Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software and student facing websites. Using Cohort Go’s dedicated API functionality, agents have the ability to purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and make international payments for their students, all without leaving their own CRM or website.
Founded in 2011, Cohort Go is the only comprehensive platform tailored specifically to the international education community. Cohort Go brings together global payments and essential student services, such as health insurance and accommodation selection, in one easy-to-use platform. Now, using Cohort Go’s services is even more seamless for education agents, with the ability to integrate services directly into their website or CRM.
Education agents are crucial to the international education industry, with three-quarters of Australia’s 750,000+ international students working with agents in 2018. An education agent provides education support and placement services to students who are interested in studying abroad. The agent can provide market expertise to advise students and their families on selecting an institution, study program, and study destination based on their individual needs.
Cohort Go works with a global network of over 2,000 agents, providing them a place to manage their student services and commissions, while students benefit from cost savings on international funds transfers and an overseas student health cover comparison tool where they can compare all Australian Government mandated OSHC providers.
By integrating Cohort Go’s services into an agency’s CRM, agents can streamline their processes and save time by eliminating double data entry. All student information contained in an agent’s CRM is used when they create a policy or make an international payment, eliminating human error associated with manual data entry.
Cohort Go Chief Executive Officer, Mark Fletcher, said the API functionality provides an improved experience for agents and students.
Integrating our services into systems agents are already using, enables agents to be more efficient and increase the number of students they can assist in embarking on an international education,” Mr Fletcher said.
“Agents already help eliminate the majority of the stress associated with organising overseas study, which has become increasingly more complex due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. It is great that we can provide a way to make our agents jobs easier as they go through this difficult time.”
