How it started

Gecko was established in 2012 by Matt Lanham with the vision of improving the way companies managed inquiries generated from all corners of their digital marketing, it was a problem that he had experienced first hand whilst running a digital agency, and something that existing solutions were not providing.

    What we can do for you

    Today, GeckoEngage offers two products — both still focused around freeing HigherEd teams to focus on high-impact activities.

    Institutions can now communicate with students one-to-one, and at scale, with our AI-powered conversational messaging platform, Chat. Our clients consolidate all their messaging channels into a single, team-managed inbox. And then, using our customizable bots, they capture leads, answer questions and register event attendees on autopilot, 24/7.

    Our visit experience platform enables schools to create sophisticated, multi-channel event playbooks, designed to take students from curious inquirers through to enrolled students. Combining key pre-event, on-the-day and post-event activities within a single platform showcases your school as a modern, responsive institution whilst providing your Admissions team with powerful tools to run streamlined, impactful events.
