Trafford College Chooses Active as CRM and Portal Supplier

One of the leading providers of education and training in Manchester – The Trafford College Group – has chosen Active to supply their new Microsoft Dynamics 365 Education CRM, with Apprentice and Employer portal.

The Trafford Group formed in April after a merger between Stockport College and Trafford College, and serves over 14,000 students across the South Manchester area.

Their new CRM will help bring together data from disparate departments based across multiple sites, improving efficiency of information management; as well as saving time and resource.

The new Apprentice and Employer portal was a key factor in the Group’s decision to choose Active.  The portal provides a central system to track candidates; and match them with suitable employers. It also serves to improve employer engagement by allowing employers to select potential candidates based on their chosen criteria.  The whole process is automated using the portal.

Christian Bowman MD at Active comments “We are very much looking forward to working with the Trafford Group.  Mergers can often bring challenges in terms of bringing together different information platforms and processes but we are confident that Dynamics 365 Education and the portal is the best way for the Group to manage this, and we are here to support them throughout the process and beyond”.
