UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES manages agents the Easy way

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) International Office had an agent network. They just needed a more consistent way to manage it. Like many universities they were using a variety of modes to liase with their agents including email, phone calls, fax and different online systems. Fine if you have one agent, trouble if you have dozens of them in 30 different countries.

Enter Easy Agent and Easy Commissions. With these proprietary tools from Object Next, UNSW were able to streamline their agent network. They now have an up-to-date master database that captures the complex relationships they maintain with each of their agents such as commissions calculations, payments and business detail changes.

There is a verifiable audit trail for every line of communication they have with their partner agents. That means no more searching through emails or chasing people for information. It’s all on the system.

“We were surprised by how cost-effective the solution was. We didn’t need to invest in any IT infrastructure or worry about maintaining it.”

University of Newcastle: Complete agent management

The University of Newcastle were looking for a contract management system to manage their agents. With Object Next, they found much more. Easy Agent helped them to create a proper database of agents. Easy Agreement Manager enabled them to keep track of agent agreements and expiry dates. Easy Agent Publisher made it easy to keep agent details on their website up to date.

“Before getting Easy Agent Publisher, we would have to separately update our contact directory and our website. Now our website is updated automatically whenever an agent changes their contact details.”

The University of Newcastle is looking forward to getting Easy Communicator, which will allow them to have one central messaging system to keep in touch with each of their agents. Basically, it’s their entire agent management process, streamlined.

“Ascent One’s Agent Management suite has helped immensely in making our agent management processes more efficient.”
