Ottawa, Ontario – November  28, 2012 – Vocantas was pleased to sponsor, exhibit, and present at the Higher Education Summit put on by Colleges Ontario, November 25-26, 2012, in Toronto, Ontario. The Higher Education Summit is an annual conference that explores issues in post-secondary education and the steps that must be taken to produce the leading-edge workforce of tomorrow. The two day summit was attended by representatives from all 24 Ontario public colleges.

Scaller reaches out to students with a human voice asking a series of interactive questions that reveals areas where each student is struggling. Based on this information the College is able to follow up with each student at highest risk of exiting their program prematurely, and provide students with support services that meet their needs.

Contact Gary Hannah for more information on how your college or university can improve student retention with just one phone call.
