Terra Dotta grows in international education solutions
Signaling record demand for an enterprise approach to managing ever-expanding higher education international programs, Terra Dotta today announced an 85 percent increase in overall new business year-to-date over the same period last year at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference held at McCormick Place West in Chicago. Additionally, the company has experienced a remarkable 50 percent increase in customers for their International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) solution.
As the market leader in higher education travel, study abroad and international program management solutions, Terra Dotta has significantly expanded its footprint among traditional four-year public and private institutions as well as community colleges.
“Today’s universities and colleges are striving to offer the most enriching international programs possible – whether through education abroad or by welcoming international students on campus – and they need innovation to deliver these programs at scale and with proper duty of care,” said Anthony Rotoli, CEO, Terra Dotta. “Our latest growth numbers illustrate institutions’ need for a comprehensive approach to addressing the full lifecycle of international education, from automating study abroad application and travel safety processes to ensuring international students are in real-time compliance with the federal government’s SEVIS process.”
Terra Dotta’s full suite of solutions brings together all aspects of higher education international operations with a centralized, streamlined approach that fosters greater efficiency, collaboration and transparency. Its flagship Study Abroad solution automates all steps of the study abroad application and registration process, while ISSS offers a cloud-based portal for international students and advisors to facilitate the entire international student application and SEVIS process with ensured compliance.
The Terra Dotta Travel Registry helps institutions mitigate overall travel risk with access to real-time traveler info and itineraries. This includes the AlertTraveler® mobile app to keep traveling students and faculty connected to their home institution with real-time local emergency alerts and in-country resources, a convenient safety check-in button, and two-way communication options via SMS text.
Rounding out the enterprise offering/suite, Agreements Management helps institutions proactively manage and improve international program partnerships with key data integration and visualization capabilities across departments.
