The University of Oklahoma Selects Intelliworks Relationship Manager

Leading Public University Chooses CRM Vendor to Enhance Admissions and Recruiting Effectiveness

ROCKVILLE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2005 -- Intelliworks, Inc., the leader in collaborative CRM software for the higher education market, today announced the University of Oklahoma (OU), one of the top public universities in the nation, has signed a multi-year agreement to license the Intelliworks Relationship Manager™ for its CRM solution. The Intelliworks Relationship Manager will allow the university to manage student profiles, class size and diversity goals. Enrolling more than 31,000 students, the University of Oklahoma is a doctoral degree-granting research university serving the educational, cultural, economic and health care needs of the state, region and nation.

With existing homegrown systems becoming outdated, combined with the increasing reality that key pieces of information were accumulating outside of these databases, University officials wanted to enhance the tracking of student information. As OU looked to more accurately communicate with potential students, tracking the large volume of interactions, whether attendance at a recruiting event, request of a brochure, or application submission, became increasingly more important. Utilizing the advanced CRM marketing and contact management tools, Intelliworks will enhance and streamline the tracking of their student information.

"We are pleased to be working with a university that understands the importance of implementing technology solutions that address the complexities related to recruiting and enrollment management," states Dev Ganesan, president & CEO, Intelliworks, Inc. "Senior administrators need to make pro-active decisions, rather than simply storing data. They also want to take advantage of CRM best practices in addition to integrating front-end and back-end functions in order to forge more collaborative relationships with key constituents, whether prospective or current students, business leaders, or alumni. Intelliworks provides all that."
