Automated Enrolment CRM Process Using Active Campaign Saves 250+ Hours per Month in Labour Costs for Childcare Provider

Our client is a provider of boutique early learning with 16 centres around the country.

Using our custom developed Active Campaign CRM, we have automated their enrolment process:

  • Enquiries tracked back from source of marketing (Adwords, Facebook, SEO, etc.)

  • Book a Tour email process

  • Tour missed follow up email

  • Registration form email process

  • Enrolment form email process

  • Enrolment registered

This allowed us to map their enrolment funnel to give the business executives a clear view of their sales funnel and incoming enrolments.

Having automations and templates in place has conservatively saved each Centre 4 hours per week (4 x 16 centres x 4 weeks = 256 hours per month) in SAVED labour costs and increased productivity.

Automations drive the entire enrolment process

Email templates save centre managers hours of time each week

Lastly we built a proprietary data warehouse using Google Big Query to link online marketing campaigns with offline enrolments tracked through the CRM.

This gives a clear link from marketing to sales, and provides a Cost per Enquiry and Cost per Enrolment in real-time, with data filterable by Centre.

Custom Built Zoho CRM Runs Lead Nurturing, Sales Processes, Invoicing and other Business Processes for Industrial Client

“Sometimes have to remind myself that these guys are not our own internal marketing team, it's that seamless.”

Mark
CEO in the Industrial Transport Industry

We manage Facebook advertising, Google Adwords advertising and Content Marketing to drive leads for this client.

As we ramped up marketing, the increased lead flow put pressure on the manual sales processes, so we worked closely with their sales team to design & implement Zoho CRM.

In the process we took their entire manual sales process from MYOB invoicing system (which required an additional headcount to manage), to a  streamlined system developing a custom sales and invoicing platform within Zoho CRM.

We then connected Zoho CRM to Xero using Workato integrations to support their accounting needs.

We then integrated a Call Tracking solution across all marketing channels and on-site chat, directly into the CRM, to provide visibility on the source of leads and sales.

This has enabled a true Cost per Acquisition so that each marketing channel can be held accountable to ROI.

The result is a cloud based marketing and sales platform that has the systems and processes to scale and keep pace with a competitive and fast changing industry.
