All Saints' Admissions Office Uses Gratavid to Add a Personal Touch

The All Saints’ Episcopal School admissions office found a tool to add a personal touch to the newcomers on its campus.

Looking for a way to thank those that took the time to tour their campus, as well as their newly-admitted students, All Saints’ now uses Gratavid to send personalized videos.

The results speak for themselves.

"My favorite reactions have been how our Gratavids seem to seal the deal with prospective families. Parents have responded with 'What an amazing institution!'", said Jennifer Pilkenton, Admission Assistant for All Saints’.

We know how much personalization means to our families and that it can make our school stand out and make families feel seen and special. Our director came across Gratavid, and we decided to give it a try. The structure of Gratavid makes it so easy for our staff and students. It also makes sending out the videos a really quick and seamless process."

The warm-natured videos make a difference and Gratavid helps make this idea a reality rather than an unrealistic task. Sending personalized videos to campus visitors and new students seems like a large undertaking on the surface, but Gratavid has the technology and capability to make it a seamless process. 

“The structure of Gratavid makes it so easy for our staff and students,” Jennifer said. “It also makes sending out the videos a really quick and seamless process.  Everything is already set up and integrated to invite all teachers and students to create videos. It is really user-friendly which increases staff buy-in.”

The All Saint's team combines multiple videos onto a single Gratavid landing page. Recipients receive a personalized video from their tour guide, the administration, current students, coaches, and teachers. Everyone thanks them for visiting and welcomes them into the All Saints' family.

The personal aspect wows them and is also useful in updating them on the admissions process — and it's all created and stored in one place. Gratavid’s user-friendly set up is easy to learn and speeds up an otherwise time-consuming process.

The staff quickly noticed the reaction and gratitude amongst the recipients. Gratavid helped All Saints’ both grow its welcoming brand and improve its digital capabilities.

“It is a simple tool to bring your company into the modern age especially when we are dealing with school-aged children,” Jennifer said. “I really think Gratavid was the cherry on top.”
