March 18, 2014: CUnet has once again raised the bar on compliance monitoring of calls from student prospects within higher education. The partnership with PerformLine, the award-winning provider of the most advanced compliance monitoring services for marketers, brings CUnet’s call monitoring capabilities to a new level. Higher-education marketers want to know the student prospects they are contacting are interested in learning more about the programs at their schools.

Partnering with PerformLine to expand and enhance our call monitoring process allows us to continue leading the industry in compliance.”
