Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1931, Mercy High School is a private all-girls high school in Burlingame, California, United States. The institution is driven by a clear mission: to provide a rigorous, Catholic education that prepares young women to lead with compassion and strive for excellence. Since its founding, more than 8,000 young women have graduated from Mercy with a powerful sense of self that provides a foundation for effective action and leadership in their communities.
For the Alumni Relations team at Mercy High School, keeping track of their 8000+ alumni who graduated over several decades was a big challenge. While the school was gathering alumni information at events, it wasn’t enough to keep its alumni database updated.
The process of manually keying in every alumni update into their database was time taking. If this time could otherwise be utilized in high-value work, it would greatly improve Mercy High School’s productivity.
Since the process in place involved manually updating data on a regular basis, the challenge of keeping it error-free was constantly faced by Mercy High School.
Alumni information automatically gets captured from Facebook and LinkedIn during the registration process and then gets updated within the school’s database. Within the first quarter of 2019, Mercy High School was able to successfully get over 30% of its alumni registered on the alumni platform.
