Move from DecisionDesk to SlideRoom

As the admissions leader for portfolio-based applications, SlideRoom recognizes that on-boarding new schools needs to be simple. And recently, we’ve received many inquires about specifically switching from Decision Desk to SlideRoom — that’s easy too.

SlideRoom has dedicated account managers who will walk you through the migration, from understanding the features to integrating your varying systems, we provide an end-to-end personal service. We have already helped other Decision Desk customers get up and running in a single day.

Below are just a few of the reasons SlideRoom already has over 750 institutions collecting and reviewing applications with SlideRoom.

Your custom admissions process is important, but it’s not always set in stone. We will help you get started, and we will make sure your admissions process is completely configured for your school’s unique admissions process. And if you want to make a change after the launch, that’s easy too. Have a new question you’d like to ask on your application? No problem! Go add it without worrying about the change breaking anything in your submission process. Decide you want to start collecting recommendation letters mid-cycle? Simple. Add that requirement and everyone from that point forward will be able to supply letters.

While systems like Decision Desk offer customization, the time for editing tends to end when your programs have launched. SlideRoom offers far more flexibility by allowing changes anytime.

Powerful Integrations
SlideRoom’s export engine allows your school to export data from SlideRoom into other campus systems (i.e. Peoplesoft). The template builder and export scheduler allow you to automate the delivery of any data collected within SlideRoom to just about any other service you want.

With your templates built, you can generate a spreadsheet on the fly, or you can set up automation and delivery rules to help round out your entire data management process.

Cost Efficient
Not only does SlideRoom introductory plans include more features than Decision Desk, the system also has more features to grow into as your admissions process evolves. As an example, compare SlideRoom’s introductory plan with Decision Desk’s.
