Enrollments Made Easy: MemberPress Bulk Upload using CSV
The client wanted an easy way to manage student enrollments and reduce the manual effort involved.
What the Project Involved
A simple-looking functionality can help a business grow better!
When the client - a training specialist - approached us, he had developed a pilot program to offer quick workshops to increase productivity and efficiency of individuals and organisations.
For the client, it was all about putting in the best to deliver quality training. To achieve this, optimization of processes and synchronization with the goal was the way to go. Like any businesses, this venture too, needed tools that would optimize the processes involved, for example, the process of enrolling learners in a course.
The company faced a difficulty in speedily enrolling students. The process used to start when a learner approached the company office to enroll. The learner would fill up the form with personal details. The entries were then entered into the computer system and a list was hence finalized for a given course.
The client wanted to save all the time and effort that went into this manual process of registration, and that's when he turned towards software as a solution. We understood the problem, and carefully devised a solution as per the client's needs. The site was based on WordPress complemented with the MemberPress plugin that handled enrollments.
We saw an opportunity to build an add-on to MemberPress that could solve the problem of time-taking enrollments. Automatic bulk enrollment was the answer to the crisis.
Although MemberPress offers enrollment of individual students, the bulk enrollment functionality is currently absent. We added an option to upload multiple students at once through MemberPress. Using this option, the client could now upload a CSV file that contained all the details about learners. Within no time, log files would get generated listing successful and unsuccessful enrollments. There was thus optimization of the enrollment process, replacing the older, tedious manual method of registration. Bulk enrollments became a breeze.
Owing to this, the training company could now approach potential groups of learners to enroll in the training programs. The improved facility of enrollment thus gave a big boost to the marketing strategy of the organisation.
We resonated with the aim of achieving an optimized learning system and devised a positive outcome. Putting ourselves in our client's shoes inspires us to innovate solutions that increase productivity.
