A remarkable number of high-calibre entries have succeeded with a reach of over a million learners or employees positively impacted by the awarded projects since 2008.
Major pain points
Before discovering and implementing Evalato, the LearnX® team relied on a document-based system which significantly slowed down the whole awards management process and required lots of resources. This translated into a time-consuming and by implication, frustrating experience for the applicants as well.
LearnX®, therefore, needed a way to streamline their process, save time and effort, and improve the overall experience for applicants. This is where Evalato came in.
“[It’s] brilliant, [we] have used other systems over a 10-year period, and their [Evalato] program and support are the best.” Rob Clarke, Head of LearnX®
What they did
LearnX® used Evalato to digitize their awards and automate their whole application and review process. What’s more, they managed to elevate their applicants' experience to new heights thanks to Evalato’s intuitive interface and ease of use. Here’s which Evalato features solved their main pressure points:
- Sleek & customizable application form
Evalato’s drag-and-drop forms builder enabled LearnX® to quickly and efficiently create a customized form for their entrants to fill out. The quick process saved 60% man-hours that the team had previously spent on handling documents and paperwork.
- Automatic emails
The automatic emails streamlined communication with applicants, informing them about successful registration, payment, approaching deadlines, etc. The automation saved LearnX® even more time, while the timely emails helped lift applicant satisfaction levels.
- Individual applicant portal
The feature that made a real difference to LearnX® applicants is Evalato’s next-gen applicant portal. Applicants get access to a personalized portal where they can easily create, edit, save, resume, and submit their work at any time. This resulted in a 50% rise in entries and an impressive 80% spike in the satisfaction rate among applicants which became evident in the positive feedback LearnX® received.
