Online Video Service Reduces Costs, Saves Time, Improves Counseling and Outreach
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Financial Aid TV (FATV), a leading supplier of online video counseling and outreach solutions for college financial aid offices, announced today a new addition to its online network.
Kennesaw State University (Kennesaw, GA) is the latest school to take advantage of Financial Aid TV's customized online video counseling and outreach solutions.
"Financial Aid TV has been a cost saver - by freeing up counselors and processors to be more effective in their respective roles," said Ron Day, Financial Aid Director at Kennesaw State University.
"In these tough economic times, schools are being challenged to do more with less," said Paul Burke, VP of Sales for Financial Aid TV. "FATV is an affordable turn-key solution designed to assist all schools, from traditional brick and mortar institutions to online distance education."

Schools are deploying FATV in a variety of ways, including:
- To Increase FA Applications
- To Improve Default Aversion Efforts
- To Improve Customer Service
