This spring, as thousands of families embark on their college road trips, Cappex.com will make organizing their odysseys a lot easier with its new Campus Visit Planner™.
The patent-pending Campus Visit Planner is specifically designed to make what’s normally a complicated process much simpler. The tool combines all elements of coordinating campus visits into one easy-to-use interface, saving students the hassle of visiting several individual college websites.
Whether students intend to visit one college or several, the Planner allows students to select the colleges they’d like to visit during their trip and then allows them to:
- Find the optimal route for all stops
- Show multi-featured maps
- Provide turn-by-turn directions
- Automatically suggest times for visits based on travel distance between campuses
- Contact colleges to express interest and to request visit dates and times
“Visits can be one of the most influential ways for students to narrow down their college choices,” said Chris Long, president of Cappex. “We are happy to provide the Campus Visit Planner to students and their families to help dramatically simplify a challenging and often stressful part of the college search process.”
“We’ve been thrilled with the positive reaction this tool has had with our students and colleges and will be making several enhancements to the service in the coming weeks and months,” Long added.
