Vedantu’s vision is to reimagine and evolve the way teaching and learning have been happening for decades. By combining quality teachers, engaging content and superior technology, Vedantu is able to create a superior learning experience for students and aid in their outcome improvement, which is unlike any offline experience.

The Challenge

Experience is the key to Vedantu’s promise of providing access to quality education to each and every student. As Vedantu’s business model scaled rapidly during pandemic, the student experience processes were unable not keep pace with rapid growth.

When a new student explored Vedantu’s courses, they engaged with the company across multiple touchpoints. The key challenge was to deliver a contextual and engaging experience to students at each and every touchpoint.

With a legacy system and broken processes, there were multiple challenges faced by Vedantu teams. These included:

  • Absence of contextual learner 360: The absence of contextual Learner 360 led to sub-optimal student experience and inability to track student lifetime value (SLV).
  • Lack of real-time reporting capability: The legacy system lacked real time reporting capability thus resulting in inaccurate KPIs for funnel and sales productivity.
  • Omni-Channel Experience: Engage Academic Counsellors, Academic Mentors and Students on the channel of their choice across SMS, WhatsApp, Email & Telephony.
  • Single Source of Truth: Rearchitecting legacy system’s linear functioning and have a single source of truth for the Sales, Service and Academics team.

Our Solution

With these challenges in mind, Vedantu looked at Salesforce to re-imagine student experience across all the touchpoints. These spanned student acquisition, onboarding and service processes. More importantly Vedantu wanted to build a Student 360 view spanning data from multiple touchpoints and bring it all onto Salesforce.

This entailed re-imagining student facing processes and orchestrating a fluid student journey throughout their lifecycle. Some salient features of this design included:

  • Reducing lead leakage by introducing follow-ups, task and event reminders for the Sales Team.
  • Consolidated features of Demo Booking, Payment Requests, Fintech Requests, Quality Audits, KYC, and Payment Requests on CRM Platform.
  • Ability to process various payment modes such as Direct, EMI and integrating with other Fintech providers.
