Why educational institutions need a CRM
Managing schools or students in your tuition can be tricky. With so many records flying in and out, wouldn't it be great to tie them all neatly together? Not to mention it would be effortless to look up records when you need! That's what CRMs are for. But with the growing complexity of traditional CRMs, most of them aren't a good fit. Unlike Bigin which comes with a template made just for schools, colleges and tutors!
One simple CRM, many uses.
Bigin is consciously built to be simple. It brings together all admission records on a neatly laid out pipeline, and provides separate modules to store all supporting information. In true versatile passion, Bigin allows its users to create multiple different pipelines to manage plenty of other operations that school managements require besides just admissions. Don't believe us? Take a look at what it can do.
Bigin is the best way to manage your institution.
Bigin understands how schools and tuition centers work. We learned you like to have all the different processes available in one window. This means you can have different pipelines for different operations so everything is neat, tidy and always just a click away.
This is your admission module. And because it is a pipeline, you can easily distinguish candidates in progressive steps of admission until they are enrolled! This also helps you tend exactly to the needs of every student for better conversion.
Keep up with all your students and even candidates who are aspiring students. The students module maintains all your student contacts, where you can add students as they inquire or enroll.
We made more room for the parents of your students! You can also store office addresses of parents among plenty of other supporting information.
A list of all your Courses
Easily keep a list of all the courses and subjects you offer. You can also associate specific courses to students who wish to take them and also view this association on your admissions pipeline.
Make a move with Activities
Set up tasks, events, or make calls with your students and their parents. You can even host and schedule video calls and meetings, all just from Bigin.
Crunch numbers with Dashboards
Bigin comes with dashboards that accurately report your performance with charts and tables so you always stay on top of your proceedings. Moreover, you can also create your own dashboards with a variety of chart styles at your disposal.
The perfect pipeline to bring together
your institution's best!
Bigin's pipeline is raved about in the small business world. So we decided to double down on our prime feature to provide a pipeline that covers all the prominent stages of the admissions cycle. Bigin pipeline clearly brings all the stages of the admissions cycle in one frame that covers every important milestone. Right from a new inquiry that passes through several stages, and all the way up to enrollment.
Here are the stages of a typical education deal in a pipeline:
Carefully customized Fields to store everything
from details to findings!
One size never fits all, only compromises do. After studying schools, tuition providers and how they function, we understood what goes into making a successful admission.
So we made changes to how you add information to Bigin that stays completely in context to you and your students.
Make calls and send emails directly from Bigin
Need to make phone calls? Check. Need to send emails? Double check. Not just limited to calls, you can also host video calls and presentations without leaving the app. Also for emails, Bigin supports all popular email services with IMAP and POP functions.
Let Bigin deal with your day-to-day routine, set up workflows

It was a pleasure working with Bigin. This product is a boon especially in this lockdown period where it is difficult to do regular work and track progress. We have been using Bigin for 3 months and enjoying it. Our team adopted it in no time, and because of its easy modules, adaptive features, cost-effectiveness, and great customer service, we will be using Bigin in the long term.

Zoho Bigin was easy for us to use from the very start. Within a couple of weeks all users were able to use most of the features and benefit from them. Quick training and implementation from the Zoho Bigin support team was helpful. Users were immediately able to see the benefit to themselves, to their teams, and to the company as a whole. All this is the value we derive from this comprehensive, easy, and intuitive application that we use on a daily basis.
