SoSimple Interactive Launches an Online Registration System for ACES
September 15th, 2015
Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES) operates as a Regional Educational Service Center (RESC) for the 25 school districts in south central Connecticut. Its goal is to improve public education through high quality, cost-effective programs and services. In an effort to streamline the enrollment process and decrease administrative costs, ACES turned to SoSimple to design and develop a user-friendly online student registration system for its Summer Academy and Behavior Services units.
As with any online registration process, ease of use was ACES' key objective. If the system were to appear overly complicated, applicants might resort to picking up the phone and calling the office to register – thus defeating the purpose. With this in mind, SoSimple designed a landing page to host the online registration system. This page offers a brief overview of the the current programs and fees, with descriptions of courses offered and clearly-defined “click to register” buttons. The registration process is secure, efficient and effortless. Applicants are prompted to enter basic information and provide payment details before submitting the completed form. Upon transaction approval, applicants receive a confirmation email, and the student’s enrollment form and proof of payment are automatically routed to an ACES representative.
In addition to reducing ACES’ administrative burden, the new online registration system offers a new level of convenience to people seeking to enroll students in the Summer Academy, or atend a Behavior Services lecture– eliminating the need to call into the office, write a check or share credit card information over the phone, and allowing for registration from a desktop, tablet or mobile device 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
