Case Study Open SUNY

Open SUNY (State Universities of New York)

Open SUNY consists of 64 institutions all over the state of New York, including research universities, academic medical centers, liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and colleges of technology. Together, they offer more than 500 programs of diverse types.

When Open SUNY partnered with Ranku in 2014, its overall goal focused on increasing enrollments throughout the university system. Through a series of discussions about the specific needs and available resources of the system, Ranku and Open SUNY broke down this goal into the following objectives:

  • Increase conversion from organic traffic
  • Improve number of RFIs for all programs and certificates
  • Create an automated workflow for conversion of RFIs to applications and enrollments
  • Provide automated email follow-ups
  • Promote programs that aligned to each prospective student’s specific search queries

This strategy was effective. Open SUNY saw significant increases in both the volume of RFIs and the number of conversions to their programs.
