A platform that places at its heart the formation of meaningful inter-member relationships. Let your community shine by providing them a safe online space that understands their needs and inspires personal connections through clever, intuitive design.
Aluminate delivers a private online space that encourages the formation of new meaningful inter-member relationships.
With its unique builder system, Aluminate is the most flexible platform in the world. It also delivers a variety of sophisticated solutions catering for engagement needs across your institution whether they are mentoring, group management, data updates, or event marketing.
Enhance your platform with a range of relationship-driven, content-driven and administrative modules.
Create your perfect user profile and then deliver dynamic discovery pages to enable your members to search and filter using full text search. Make available even those who haven’t yet registered with our unique ‘stub profile’ system.
The Directory can be configured to include all or specific user groups of the platform. It can also be configured to only be shown to certain groups.
Members may filter the Directory via filters such as graduation dates, industry experience, subject area and you may also configure additional filters to help with their search.
The Directory also supports the inclusion of ‘stub’ accounts which allow you to include all members of your community, even those who are yet to register, with only public domain information available. These profiles can be contactable without exposing private email addresses – so from now on you can direct those frequent re-connection requests to Aluminate!
Interactive Chat Messaging
Beautiful chat, but more. Aluminate includes a fluid and intuitive chat interface used not only for traditional messaging but also coordinates actions such as handling inter-member connection requests. Users can view the full history of your relationships on a single channel.
Open Connection Networks
Deploy multiple targeted, self-organising, peer-to-peer mentoring programmes. Each network can service a different connection profile – for example student-alumni, alumni-alumni or even staff-staff. The user-managed request interaction scales globally with minimal staff resource. Aluminate eMentoring avoids the resource-intensive process of manually matching mentors with mentees but includes all the necessary functions to safeguard the user experience.
Managed Connection Networks
All the flexibility of the Open Networks but for more serious connection programmes with a commitment of ‘high touch’ staff resource to maintain quality. Aluminate allows you to approve who has access to Managed Networks as well as quality check requests between members. This delivers the perfect ‘high tech, high touch’ solution and is great where your participants are VIPs or require extra support.
Inspire prospective students to come to your institution by connecting them with current students or alumni. The Ambassadors programme can be either an Open or Managed connection programme, targeted specifically at supporting your Admissions office increase conversion rates. Particularly effective at encouraging international placements as it allows foreign applications to find Ambassadors from their own country.
Regional & Interest Groups
Deploy an unlimited number of groups, targeted at particular regions or interests, giving your users a collaborative space to exchange ideas via a shared chat board, publish events and upload and share resources.
An online archive allowing you to publish protected digital resources: upload photos, create articles, embed videos and more. All with full tracking statistics down to the per-user level.
Jobs & Opportunities
Share opportunities with your members, giving them exclusive access to internships, work experience and employment opportunities. Publish your own postings and allow your users to submit opportunities for review.
