Supercharge Microsoft Dynamics 365 with Gecko

Supercharge Microsoft Dynamics 365 with Gecko

Gecko’s under one roof platform integrates directly with Dynamics to add a HE-specific student engagement layer to your CRM.

Microsoft Dynamics is increasingly being used by Higher Education institutions as it delivers a lot of core CRM functionality. But it doesn’t provide the end-to-end, customizable student engagement that institutions need and students now expect. This is where Gecko comes in. Gecko is easy to set up, user-friendly, modular, and scalable. Plus our platform approach means you don’t have to bolt in multiple different products that don’t connect and share data.

We will work hand-in-hand with your institution to build your Gecko and Dynamics integration to deliver a more advanced data sync between the two systems. This will allow your admissions team to better access student data like interactions and engagement across the admission cycle and will help decipher and measure ROI with advanced analytics.

There is no way we would have the volume or quality of data we have without the Gecko and Dynamics integration.

20+ Gecko partners who integrate with Dynamics

We've never been able to find something that works as well for higher education as the Gecko platform. We try to do as much in our CRM, Microsoft Dynamics 365, as we can because it makes sense that we want to do as much as we can within that system.

Raise the student engagement bar with our Dynamics integration

If you’re already using Microsoft Dynamics as your CRM, or you’re considering switching, then you’ll want to ensure that any other software you identify can seamlessly integrate with it and enhance the overall experience.

Gecko has been developed to enhance CRM platforms like Dynamics based on a decade of input from HE institutions to provide the tools you need to improve student engagement, enrolment, and satisfaction.

To ensure you get the most from your Gecko x Dynamics integration, we provide tailored onboarding, regular training, and helpful resources to help our partners achieve the full potential of their Dynamics integration.

Our HE partners using Dynamics can:

  • Easily access student conversation data with automatic sync to CRM
  • Track prospect interactions and progress throughout the admissions cycle
  • Inform and contribute to better marketing decisions from data and analytics
  • Optimize the student funnel for improved yield and enrollment numbers
We looked at multiple tools but we chose Gecko because of its integration with our CRM, Microsoft Dynamics. Also, Gecko is built for education, it's not taking something out of the box and trying to make it fit when it doesn’t.
