Perdia Education Launches Emma™, the First Mobile Student Enrollment Solution

William Carey University is first in the nation to successfully utilize mobile enrollment management 

Monterey, VA. March 2, 2021 – Perdia Education today announced the launch of Emma™, the first and only mobile enrollment platform that allows institutions to reach today’s adult learners via their preferred modality, their mobile device. The patent-pending technology seamlessly integrates with existing technological infrastructures to deliver customized recruitment, admissions, enrollment, and retention solutions, with a mobile app that interviews, qualifies and advises prospective students from first inquiry to first day of class—and beyond.

“With Emma, Perdia is redefining student recruitment and enrollment by providing institutions with new technologies  that enhance and accelerate online program growth with improved yield and reduced expenses,” said Tony Huffman, Founder and CEO of Perdia Education. “Driven by artificial intelligence and behavioral science, Emma responds to the shifting communications preferences of today’s students by delivering clear, concise and real-time information where they want it, when they want it.”

Millennials now make up about half of online college students and research has shown that the best way to communicate with this student demographic is through digital platforms. Because Emma is accessible 24/7, the platform enables institutions to accelerate online enrollments by connecting with potential students at their exact time and point of need, from initial discovery, admissions interview, evaluation of requirements and document collection to post-applicant nurturing, start coaching, and retention support through Term 1 and Term 2. Plus, Emma’s turnkey communications options enable institutions to reduce their reliance on call centers, which are proven to be ineffective in today’s competitive higher ed environment.

“Perdia has put us on the cutting edge of program growth with mobile enrollment technology, enabling outstanding communication with students before their enrollment all the way through their program,” said Ben Burnett, Ph.D., Executive Vice President and Professor of Education at William Carey University. “In addition to assisting with enrollment, they have been a driving force in helping to improve all of our internal processes which has made us a stronger organization for all our students.”

Perdia Education offers Emma on a flexible, short-term contract model and the platform has low-impact tech integration requirements.  The platform can be easily white-labeled for colleges and universities.
