Intersect by Hobsons Kicks Off a Promising RepVisits Year at the 2018 NACAC National Conference
Intersect Team Members to Present on 2017 Road Warrior Survey Results and Insights
SALT LAKE CITY, September 28, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Intersect, is pleased to announce that RepVisits usage is off to a strong start for the Fall 2018 travel season. Continued growth is expected throughout the remaining Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 seasons. In addition, members of the Intersect by Hobsons team will present insights and best practices on the college visit process today at the 2018 NACAC National Conference.
RepVisits is a free tool to help high schools manage the college visit process. High schools have the ability to publish their visit availability so college admissions counselors can schedule visits without the time-consuming back and forth communication typically required. In the first month of the 2018-19 school year alone, over 3,300 high schools have used RepVisits to schedule college visits, representing a 30% increase year over year. Additionally, over 212,000 appointments have been scheduled in RepVisits for the 2018-19 school year so far. This has already surpassed the total number of visits scheduled for the entirety of the 2017-2018 school year.
“RepVisits’ growth rate is a great early indicator of continued, rapid adoption,” said Erica White, RepVisits founder and Director of Product Management for Intersect by Hobsons. “The RepVisits team expects even more continued growth throughout Fall and Spring of the 2018-19 school year.”
Eric Secor, Director of Product Marketing for Intersect, will present “On the Road Again: Insights from the 2017 Road Warrior Survey,” at NACAC today at 2:15-2:45 p.m. MDT. The presentation will provide insights on the results of Hobsons annual survey of college admission road warriors, and will discuss suggestions and feedback from admission personnel on ways to improve the college visit process for students, as well as admission and high school counselors.
RepVisits staff will be on hand at NACAC in booth #201 to answer product and technical questions and to demonstrate the product.
