NameCheck makes a difference!

StageClip’s partner institutions have seen major improvements in correct name pronunciation at their ceremonies. For example, Gonzaga University partnered with us to ensure their graduation ceremonies featured personalized, accurate recognition for every grad. Using Namecheck’s A.I. name-reading technology, graduates were able to preview their name pronunciation before the ceremony and provide corrections if needed. The improvements were a hit with graduates and family members!

32% of Gonzaga University grads made corrections after reviewing their pronunciation. The improvements were a success with graduates and families!

The Importance of Getting Name Pronunciation Right at Graduation

Names matter, and at graduation, everyone deserves to hear their name said using the correct pronunciation.

If graduates’ names are mispronounced as they take their final steps as students, you’re misrepresenting their individual and cultural identities, making them feel disappointed, disrespected, and excluded, 1 turning one of life’s proudest moments into a not-so-fond memory.

Plus, imagine the nightmare your commencement speaker endures as they fumble and trip over consonants, trying to say each graduate’s name correctly. Even if the rest of the ceremony goes off without a hitch, get even one name wrong, and it’s all for nothing. 2 But for higher education institutions, pronouncing names correctly at graduation ceremonies has always been easier said than done—until now.

Additional Graduation Video Features

Along with our name pronunciation tool, StageClip can offer you additional graduation video add-on features to take your engagement and brand reputation to the next level.

Alumni Surveys

With StageClip’s alumni survey feature, you can collect hard-to-get data like post-university email addresses, mobile numbers, and communication preferences. Before each graduate can watch and download their clip, a survey is presented, including questions to help you keep track of your alumni after graduation to improve engagement.

Graduate-Uploaded Content

StageClip’s graduate-uploaded content feature allows grads to make their experience even more personal with their own photos, videos, and messages. Quotes, text, photo montage, or recorded video messages are played before their big moment on stage, giving your grads the chance to get involved in the creation process. All graduate-uploaded content is created by graduates and pre-approved by you, so you can protect your brand with our included moderating tools to make the day memorable—for the right reasons.
