CSU Stanislaus Launches “The Warrior”

Ocelot’s Industry-Leading Machine Learning Platform Provided CSU Stanislaus with an Unrivaled Starting Point for Customization, Enabling Easy Maintenance.

BOULDER, CO – Ocelot, higher education’s leading AI-powered Student Engagement Platform, with deep integration in Financial Aid and Enrollment Management, announced today that a new school has launched a conversational chatbot on its easy-to-use platform.

CSU Stanislaus is the latest institution to take advantage of Ocelot’s extensive machine learning platform to launch their own chatbot.  

“The chatbot allowed us to be ready for our students  – to better connect with them so they don’t get lost,” said Noelia Gonzalez, Director of Financial Aid. “Students have questions throughout the day and evening and they were able to get answers 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week.  The immediate responses gave students the room to breathe.  It also allows the financial aid staff to spend more time with the students that have much more complicated situations. As an added bonus – the implementation was easy and quick.”

“Our unique chatbot platform is enabling schools like CSU Stanislaus to build powerful chatbots with little-to-no IT resources,” said Kevin O’Shea, Ocelot’s Chief Technology Officer.  “Our extensive knowledge base and video library provide an unrivaled starting point for customization, with enterprise-grade Natural Language Understanding technology ensuring users can quickly find the answers they need.”

The Ocelot platform is mobile friendly, WCAG AA 2.0 accessible, and can be deployed across student service departments and One-Stops.

  • Provide “Virtual Student Support” and Self-Service
  • Increase Enrollment and Retention 
  • Improve Customer Service
  • Reduce Phone Calls and Wait Times
  • Ensure Consistency of Answers
