Hobsons, the leading provider of college and career readiness, best-fit matching, enrollment management, and student success solutions, today launched the next generation of RepVisits, a tool designed to ease the process of scheduling college visits to high schools. The newly enhanced tool is now available directly within the Hobsons Counselor Community and Intersect platform, which facilitate seamless networking between high school counselors and college admissions staff, as well as the popular Naviance college and career readiness platform.
