According to a recent report shared by the Australian Government, Department of Education, Skills, and Employment (2020), the market for enrolment of International Students has been growing substantially over the past two decades. This growth can be attributed to International Student Agencies and it will continue after the pandemic-imposed border shutdowns.
International Students looking to enrol in various educational courses (Higher Education, Vocational Education, and Training, K-12 Schools, ELICOS, etc.) seek assistance from registered student agencies to represent them.
These Agencies play a significant role in verifying the key details of International Students regarding their identity, prior learning experience, and more. All these data are required during the assessment process before providing students a letter of offer along with a certificate of enrolment. Besides, they play a critical part in arranging and advising the students regarding the issuance of visas by the relevant Government departments, obtaining appropriate health cover, and so on.
To select, engage and manage International Student Agents, Australian Education Providers must undertake due diligence to hire the services of a Student Agent while being in accordance with the international student recruitment strategy.
Australian Education Providers are facing the challenge of growing operational overhead to assess International Agents from the global competitive pool. Such challenge education providers face while working with this group comes from the fact that:
To address potential problems with education agencies, institutions use various methods while working with agents, including conducting due diligence on agents and writing contracts before hiring agents, maintaining long-term relationships, providing ongoing training, monitoring agents’ practices, and terminating contracts with unscrupulous agents.
Education institutions have also been dealing with the manual task of managing and recruiting agents, which may cause unanticipated delays, operational inefficiencies, and the risk of not completing their due diligence.
Girikon’s Agent Management and Student Onboarding Solution will help organisations partner with quality agents while reducing the risk of damaging their reputation, as well as the cost of managing and assessing agents.
The team are engaging and knowledgeable of the product. They are capable of providing advice and recommendations for “non-technical” people 😊. The team are responsive and continue to support us on our Salesforce journey, no matter how big or small the question. We look forward to continuing to work with the team.
Girikon has been our trusted Salesforce advisor for 2 years. We needed a partner who really understood our unique challenges, and with their extensive experience in consulting for the not-for-profit sector, Girikon helped us get closer to the finish line.
Girikon was excellent in suggesting and implementing what’s a simple process but actually has a number of underlying processes that we now use to better forecast and report over time. If I were to say, there’s probably Agile project management at its finest.
As we were the first higher education institution in our region to adopt the EDA with the Student Success Hub (SSH), there was a lengthy scoping phase for this project. Girikon were excellent in assisting us with discovering our needs and how Salesforce could meet and exceed those needs.
Girikon's attention to detail and willingness to find integrated solutions with our existing platforms was outstanding. The level of resources they provided to the engagement always made us feel prioritized as a client and kept the project on track. Overall it was the quality and level of project management that stood out across the engagement to make it so successful.
Our experience with the Girikon team has been fantastic. They helped us develop a custom Salesforce solution to integrate our new website with Salesforce, right before the launch of one of our major annual-giving campaigns. They helped us develop a custom API to integrate our new website with Salesforce, set up our campaigns and streamlined the overall campaign and donor management process. As a small not-for-profit with limited resources, Girikon has become our go-to Salesforce partner. Thanks Girikon!
Thanks so much to everyone on the team for getting Phase 2A completed on schedule.
I appreciate the cooperative spirit and the attention to detail that enabled us to streamline the entire process in order to achieve success and to meet our goals.
I couldn't be more thrilled to work with such a terrific group of people, and I'm looking forward to working with you on the next 2 phases of the project!
With many thanks,
Very happy with Girikon, as they finish the project working us a team and they got really engaged with our needs and specifications. The communication was excellent and i am more then happy to recommend Girikon to anyone for salesforce projects. Keep up the good job!
Girikon have provided a great 'end to end' solution with a minimum of fuss and hassle. The iterative manner by which the project evolved has ensured a 'fit for purpose' outcome. Thank you!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Girikon. In all the projects undertaken from us, they have been very helpful in building solutions for our ORG. Also, they have very competitive prices. We Will definitely hire them again for any future projects.
Short term initial engagement with real benefits from the product and solutions scoped and delivered. Good experience with an educated & passionate Salesforce implementation partner.
The team at Girikon were knowledgeable with Salesforce, it's limitations and how best to leverage the resources available to achieve the best outcome. Engagement was flexible and the team continue to support our business.
Yiannis and the team listened carefully to what I needed to achieve and delivered on time and in budget. I look to working with them again in the future.
Girikon team are professional, knowledgeable with Salesforce product and meet objectives in a timely manner. They are a pleasure to work with..
The team at Girikon, they were very professional and detailed in every way! They spent a good amount of time identifying our scope and meticulously understanding our processes before we wrote a single line of code. When they presented a schedule, they stuck to it and the after development support has been top-notch. The Devs have great personalities and I have enjoyed spending time with them building the structure that supports my business. These guys are the best and we already have additional work slated to do with them. We have found a partner for life in Girikon!
From day one, I noticed several differences between Girikon and the previous firms we had worked with. The major difference was the daily communication. I was not only able to jump on a phone call once a day to answer any questions, bounce my ideas to the team and receive progress updates, but also received a daily progress report with upcoming work items.
A project handed off a project to the Girikon team will most certainly be a quality delivery on time and within budget!
We have been extremely impressed with all of our projects with Girikon. They have helped streamline our internal processes, and made our daily work environment a better place to be. Our work together has reduced the amount of tedious “plug-and-chug” work, helped us to innovate new processes, and allowed us to focus on helping our clients.
We at Go! Go! World have had the pleasure of working with the team at Girikon on a very niche project involving multilingual Salesforce B2C implementation.
With brilliant analysis, planning and execution Girikon, not only delivered what we needed but also added value by recommending additional features that we did not previously think possible. Their work ethics and requirement understanding is top-notch and we are absolutely looking forward to working with Girikon for future projects.
I can highly recommend the Girkion Team. They have been amazing since my first contact with them via their website to our Go-Live Date
Girikon were a very diligent team that helped setup our quick-start Salesforce implementation to enable us to have over 250 accounts, over 1,000 contacts and a number of opportunities transferred and then configured for our requirements.
They listened to our requirements for an effective sales engagement process to be implemented, whilst ensuring integration from Pardot was effective for a streamlined process from lead to opportunity. Our team, whilst small in numbers, are scattered around the world, so being able to implement an effective solution that could be trained quickly for users and have them aligning their use was really effective from Girikon
