What is Graduway?

Graduway is a cloud-based platform allowing schools, universities, nonprofits and corporates to break departmental silos and work together to build powerful virtual networks that cater for the full constituent lifecycle - from prospect to student, alumnus/na to donor, and everything in-between.

Key benefits of using Graduway

  • The web platform and mobile applications are customized and branded for each client, and can be integrated with existing websites, content management systems, CRMs, and databases.

  • Alumni register using their Facebook or LinkedIn accounts, giving access to their personal information so that alumni records can be kept up-to-date, and alumni can invite their connections to join the network.

  • The verification of new alumni can be controlled to ensure that only genuine alumni can access the platform.

  • Users can view alumni activity statistics, including page views, posts, photos, events, likes, messages, connections, networking, jobs, updates, and more, all of which can be downloaded to sync with other systems and databases.

  • Donations can be processed through integration with PayPal, allowing alumni to make donations securely, directly through the Graduway platform.

    Pros
    It is beautiful and intuitive to use (as an administrator and as a user). Every time I share the platform with someone new they say, "wow" and get what we're trying to do immediately.

    The digest feature is one of the best tools on the platform and really promotes interaction and user engagement. We are very pleased with the product.

    Ease of use and set-up, despite the many and varied things that it can do. Customer service is outstanding.

    Cons
    Many searches come up empty which is frustrating because I know they should at least be in the system even if the alum has not joined Westmont Connect.

    Sometimes we do get lost in it especially in the Home Page.

    It also does not logically locate alumni in the system and some are altogether missing.

    I love our Graduway platform. It has brought our alumni relations platform into the 21st century

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    An engaged and re-invigorated former pupil platform that attracts alumni on a global scale and encourages them to interact and respond.

    Pros

    Our Graduway platform is engaging and sticky and encourages users to interact on the site. They post photos and message each other independently.

    Cons

    The UK searching fields by location are ridiculous - there are thousands of towns on there listed that I've never heard of - too many to make it of any use... It would also be useful to have the 'work' filter in the invite and message function too.

    A platform I'm proud to provide to my network

    Reviewed a year ago

    Where to begin? The customer service is top notch! I don't think of Graduway as a vendor, I think of them as a partner in my work. Not only have they ensured that what I'm presenting to my network is beautiful and user friendly but they are always innovating and sharing best practices so that our users can get the most out of this product.

    Pros

    It is beautiful and intuitive to use (as an administrator and as a user). Every time I share the platform with someone new they say, "wow" and get what we're trying to do immediately.

    Cons

    This is tough to say because as soon as I come up with something new that I want the platform to have, the team tells me it is already in progress and within months, we have it.

    Easy platform for pushing information to alumni. Could be more customized but otherwise good.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Alumni are able to engage with one another and get more information from the school all in one email.

    Pros

    The weekly digest is a great way to aggregate info and send it to all alumni. The job posting feature is fantastic and provides a great way for alumni to share job opportunities, as well. The updates section is a nice feature but lacks the ability to sort into categories. The events page is a great place for the school to update alumni about events without sending another email to their inbox.

    Cons

    The software isn't as customizable as other softwares that I've used. For example, in the posting section, there isn't a way to create categories for posting. It would be great if alumni could tag the post with a category (mentoring question, general question, etc.). Plus, when people reply to the post, it doesn't ping you or let you know a reply was received. You have to rely on logging in to see if you got a reply. The reply doesn't show up on the next news digest, which would be helpful if it did.

    Implement this platform immediately

    Reviewed a year ago

    Excellent, fantastic, and superb.

    Pros

    If I have to limit my response it would be the support of the Graduway staff. They are super responsive and extremely knowledgeable about their product. Another pro, is they always seem to be improving the product by adding functionality and I believe they really understand their user and their needs. This product really has everything that we need and would want to virtually engage our constituents. They also prepare marketing to help us reach our audience. They want us to be successful.

    Cons

    2 things: first I wish that there was some functionality that would allow our users to post on Graduway and then instantly post that same thing on LinkedIn or another social platform.

    One of the alternatives considered as my Alumni platform

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    When we went to implement the new platform of our Alumni, this was one of the 4 main alternatives considered, along with AlumnForce, AlmaShines and Hivebrite. However, it was not chosen, because although it is a good platform, it has less functionality than the competitors and has a relatively high cost.

    Pros

    It has a very beautiful aesthetic, it is quite easy to use, for both administrators and users. Very low usage learning curve. Its use is pleasant. Excellent technical assistance. Good deployment cost. The [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] of the company that owns the product has a great vision on Alumni, and his book is the basis for the implementation of a successful Alumni.

    Cons

    In the short term, the company provides a low cost of implementation, but in the long term, the platform's annual fee is high. It is a well-built product, but it lacks many features that already exist in competitors. The cost-effectiveness of competitors is much better.
