Delving into the ASAP system data unveils some noteworthy patterns and trends, but keep in mind, we're only scratching the surface of what's happening within ASAP. We cannot, of course, include the full spectrum of activity outside the system.
Increase in Revenue and Enrollments - We're thrilled to report a significant uptick in both revenue and enrollments since 2021. Your commitment to providing quality learning opportunities to all in the community is undoubtedly paying off.
Decrease in Donations and Increase in Financial Aid-type discounts - While we've observed a steady decline in donations since 2021, we do have some suggestions to address this. Read on for tips on how to stimulate donations and continue the growth trajectory.
A truly commendable highlight of the year is the increase in Financial Aid discounts awarded, reflecting a firm commitment to supporting all students in your community.
Sustaining Success: Six Strategies for Growth
In light of these insights, we understand the importance of sustaining this positive momentum. And who doesn’t love a Top 6 List 😉
Here are some habits observed in our most successful clients that you might find beneficial:
Use Donation at Checkout – Make it easy for your students to make a donation by using the Donate at Checkout feature in the Fundraising module. ASAP clients have found their students appreciate the opportunity to help others gain access to quality education. Learn how here.
Put it all on the Public Site – Our most successful clients put everything online. Everything you offer your students and customers, from trips to t-shirts, can be managed through your public website. This powerful communication tool also helps promote your faculty and keep students current when you regularly update your home page. Learn how here.
Empower Faculty - Your teaching staff will thank you! Give them easy access to vital and current information about their teaching commitments and attendance either through the Teacher's App or the full ASAP Teacher's Admin account. Learn how here.
Empower Students - Give them the tools to become better students. Utilizing their online account students and families can track payments and financial data, check schedules, track attendance and more. Using these tools reduces the time you spend on maintaining accurate records, reduces balances due and provides much needed information to busy families. Learn how here.
Data-driven Decision Making – The Data Insights panel on the home page is ideal for giving an accurate, live view of the last three months activities, instantly showing the current health of your organization. See comparisons to previous years and more details on enrollments and retention, all from the Admin portal home page. Learn how here.
Switch to ConnexPoint – Consider transitioning to ConnexPoint for a more integrated and streamlined payment processing experience. CXP allows you 24/7 insight into payment activity by individual, location, GL code etc. and can reduce both your processing fees and administrative burden. Email us if you'd like a quote and to learn about setting up your account. Learn more here.
