The Challenges

Conde Nast needed a solution that allowed them to take full payments for short courses as part of the booking process, as well as deposits, instalments and full payments for long courses ONLY after the applicant had accepted an offer from the College. HEIApply is able to provide for these scenarios, and many more to match. With the fully flexible payment methods, payment types, and controls over deposits, instalments and full payments Conde Nast are totally in control. Their configuration includes setting up and embedding their secure payment gateway with major payment solutions provider Worldpay.

Conde Nast College not only has courses that require a full application form, which is submitted for review, and decisions are made as to whether to make an offer to the applicant, but they ALSO have Short Courses that if applicants pay for a place then you are immediately confirmed as having "booked and paid"! Therefore Conde Nast needed a solution that provided a responsive applicant journey depending on the choices of the applicant.

Conde Nast College had previously run online admissions through a system that was no longer fit for purpose. With cohorts of existing applicants part way through applying, some having accepted an offer and started making deposit and instalment payments, the data needed careful conditioning to prepare it for import into HEIApply. We were able to do this to the exact requirements of mapping legacy systems with new data tables.
