Why educational institutions need a CRM

Admissions are flowing in, and you have to manage student details, staff information, information about parents, alumni details, and more. Think about storing all this in a spreadsheet—a recipe for disaster. Vital information like this should be easily accessible and more organized than spreadsheets can achieve. With its smart and easy-to-use features, Bigin offers a 360-degree view of your educational institution.

One Bigin account to tackle every bottleneck

Using Bigin can enhance the efficiency, effectiveness, and organization of your educational institution's operations, from admissions and student management to alumni relations and fundraising efforts. Simply relax while Bigin takes care of error-prone and time-consuming tasks.

Let's look at how educational institutions can benefit from Bigin—the simplest CRM ever!

A template made just for you

There are always difficulties when you first start doing something, and using a CRM for the first time can also be extremely intimidating. Well, worry not! There are a number of customizable templates for your Business and your Teams in Bigin. Bigin has a template made just for your unique educational needs so that you can start your journey with Bigin with just a few clicks!

Modules in Bigin's education template

Simply drag, drop,
and track

Track potential students from the initial inquiry stage through enrollment using pipelines, which help you manage prospective student information, track their interactions with your institution, and automate communications.


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.

Add Parents!

We made more room for the parents of your students! You can also store office addresses of parents amongst plenty of other supporting information.

A list of all your courses

Easily keep a list of all the courses and subjects you offer. Associate specific courses to students who wish to take them and view these associations in your admissions pipeline.

Make things happen with activities

Set up tasks and events or make calls with the students and their parents. You can even host and schedule webinars and meetings—all from inside Bigin.

Crunch numbers with dashboards

Bigin comes with dashboards that accurately report your performance through charts and tables so you can always stay on top of your proceedings. You can also create your own dashboards with a variety of chart styles at your disposal.

A pipeline for every department

Think about the various departments in your educational institution. They'll definitely be hard to manage across different applications. Instead, use Bigin's team pipelines to create distinct pipelines for every department and manage everything in one single Bigin account. Educational institutions can improve their overall efficiency, collaboration, and organization across various departments and functions using team pipelines.

Use carefully customized fields to store
everything from details to findings!

After studying Schools, Colleges, Coaching Centers, Educational Consultants and how they function, we understood what goes into making a successful admission process, so we've made changes to how you add information to Bigin so that the context always stays intact.

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.
