From Text to Chat, Make Every Message Count ™

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.

  • 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
