WATERTOWN, Mass. (September 12, 2017) – In a move that will expand the availability of tools that support strategic college admissions, Liaison International today announced it has acquired SlideRoom. The company is best known for its seamless integration of multimedia components into admissions review workflows. Universities, arts, human resources and grant making organizations currently leverage SlideRoom in their decision-making processes.
Liaison’s acquisition was motivated by an increased commitment to holistic assessment in higher education admissions. “As they search for best-fit students, our clients begin their review with a focus on academic performance. Many are looking for ways to add applicants’ attributes, experiences, aspirations and achievements to their review framework, “ shared George Haddad, CEO and founder of Liaison. “We have and will continue to leverage state-of-the-art solutions to support these goals. Partnerships like this help us deliver significant outcomes through our innovative, dynamic admissions platform.”
SlideRoom will continue to offer, support and grow its advanced admissions portfolio platform. Liaison will also integrate the technology into its Centralized Application Services (CAS™). As a result of the acquisition, current SlideRoom and Liaison higher education clients can benefit from expanded access to both companies’ portfolio management, enrollment marketing and admissions management software and services.
“We look forward to joining Liaison to help realize a fresh vision for the future of college admissions,” said Chris Jagers, CEO of SlideRoom. “Combining our technologies will create a powerful product suite able to help institutions more efficiently make admissions decisions.”
