A great platform to reconnect with alumni whom you have lost contact with.

Building our alumni database and effectively reach out to them.

Pros

Amazing from both an admin perspective and user. Had wonderful feedback & incredible service. Every member is verified, so you know you're talking to genuine graduates of the University. - Browse job opportunities - Network with alumni - View career and life tips, photo albums, and events - Sync your social media accounts - Creating Surveys - Get statistics and detailed reports Set up push notifications to your mobile device, so you never miss a potential connection.

Cons

I can not see who viewed my profile, I think it will be a great feature to add, also we asked for more flexibility in the automated newsletter, Gradsgate promised to update it in their next release.

Good Product - Great Service

From day one Gradsgate understood our Project and had the expertise we need to create a bespoke alumni network. We are a family owned private school and the software is easily adaptable for any size business. The customer service has been first rate, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. This is what has really made Gradsgate stand out against our products in the market.

Pros

The software is very complete. It has lots of interesting features and is constantly evolving and keeping up with the latest innovations in this sector. It is easy to set up and the people behind Gradsgate couldnt be more helpful, always ready with advice and training. We are just starting out on our Gradsgate adventure but already it has made a huge difference to our ability to manage our alumni.

Cons

There have been a few difficulties with the app but as soon as we communicated these to Gradsgate they were solved. Also we would like more interaction with the photo galleries, again this is a tool that is in Development.

Going the extra mile to add and customize our requests

Great team work; and a great product that made my job so much easier and more efficient,  I would recommend this product for any institution looking for additional ways to reach their alum.

Pros

The platform is continually improving and the team is looking at ways to help our alumni community thrive.

Cons

There is no audit trail available which would prove extremely useful. With many members of staff using the system I would definitely prefer to be able to know which user amended which records and when.
