Meet Mongoose.

Hello. We make conversational software exclusively for higher education.

All-in on higher ed

Since day one, Mongoose has focused on helping colleges and universities streamline communication with constituents and enhance relationships throughout the student lifecycle. Because higher education is our one-and-only market, you get 100% of our energy, attention, and expertise.

Speaking of experience, our management personnel have worked in higher ed – on both client and vendor sides – for an average of 17 years. So we understand your challenges, and can coach you on proven best practices to improve your communication and reach your goals.

 

The leader in conversational software

Even in today’s digital world, an authentic conversation can be profoundly powerful. Based on this belief, and aided by cutting-edge technology, our software enables you to talk with (not to) your constituents.

Whether you use Cadence or Harmony (or both), you can count on our products to:

  • Be intuitively designed and exceptionally easy to use
  • Provide the optimal balance of automation and personalization
  • Simultaneously integrate with popular higher education information systems, aligning with the way your campus is already doing business
  • Be backed by knowledgeable teams that provide unparalleled support and service

Over 600 institutions use Mongoose software to engage with students, parents, alumni, and other audiences. And in doing so, achieve remarkable outcomes.

More than software

At Mongoose, we feel our job isn’t just to make the tool. It’s also to teach you how to use it to its fullest potential. That’s why we create and publish conversational marketing resources such as industry insights, webinars, case studies, and best practices for our clients and the higher ed community as a whole.

marshall-dave-2020-2

Dave Marshall

President & Product Manager

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who is more passionate about higher education communication than Dave. His desire to create out-of-the-box solutions while employing an under-the-radar approach is evident in Mongoose’s innovative and intuitive software.

andrew-headshot

Andrew Veatch

Vice President, Engineering

Andrew is responsible for technology and product architecture at Mongoose, and couldn’t be more excited to be helping institutions optimize their communication. He has spent nearly his entire career in higher education technology.

leslie2020

Leslie Skwara

Vice President, Operations/Finance

While the financial responsibilities of the company lie in Leslie’s hands (no pressure), her role with the company cannot be restrained by a mere bio. Think “lifeblood.” From operations and accounting to contracts and Client Love, Leslie is holding the reins of a rocket ship heading to the moon. And, she does it all while basking in our gratitude and admiration.

jason2020

Jason Pearl

Vice President, Sales

A strategy is nothing without experience. Luckily, Jason has a resume of success that reads like Thurman Thomas’ Wikipedia page. As resilient as he is ethical (highly), Jason's core focus is to direct and drive fast-paced systematic growth of our software platform by helping colleges and universities effectively connect with their constituents. (Cliff notes version: he’s here to help!) It’s a great way to spend the day until he gets home to what really matters.

lesley

Lesley Vossenkemper

Vice President, Product Strategy

Every good story has a fortune teller. At Mongoose, Lesley V. is our heralded soothsayer. As Vice President of Product Strategy, Lesley identifies new opportunities for our products, steering the Mongoose ship into waters that others might find unfamiliar. It’s all about having vision. Lesley’s vision is 20/15. And, because she’s too valuable to be contained to one space, Lesley is also the President at Scale-Up Strategies, and an Ed Tech Executive & Strategic Growth Advisor.
