Hobsons' AppReview Simplifies College Application Review Process

CINCINNATI and DENVER, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As admissions offices prepare for the deluge of documents from 2013 college applicants, Hobsons introduces a web-based interface for the paperless review of applications. Hobsons, a leader in recruitment, communication, and student success solutions, debuts the AppReview solution at this year's Educause conference in Denver, the premier gathering of the brightest minds in higher education information technology.

"As admissions offices face increasingly limited resources and competing priorities, the student application review process poses opportunities to improve operational efficiencies," said Todd Gibby, president of higher education, Hobsons. "AppReview enables institutions to streamline time-consuming activities like collecting materials from each applicant and improving the experience for faculty and others involved in the process. These efficiencies free schools to focus on the core mission of attracting the right students and supporting their success."

Coordinating multiple reviewers is challenging, especially when not all of them are full-time admissions staff or even in the same location. Hobsons designed AppReview to support programs with reviewers both onsite and in remote locations, in centralized and de-centralized offices. It was designed with faculty in mind: users who are extremely busy and don't have a lot of time to learn a new system, and want their reviews presented to them in an intuitive way. AppReview allows coordinators to easily bundle and assign applications to reviewers, who can then sort, filter, and search the materials the way they want using a familiar inbox look and feel. Once they complete an application, head reviewers can send decision recommendations into the ApplyYourself centralized application management solution in real time.

"We are really pleased to be involved with AppReview as we were looking for a product that had synergy with technology we already knew and our end-users trusted," commented longtime ApplyYourself user Anna De Cheke Qualls, director, Office of Graduate Affairs and Admissions, Johns Hopkins University. "AppReview's integration with our online application makes for a more seamless graduate admissions review experience. We are also hoping to gain long-term workflow efficiencies, but most of all, a robust and sustainable review process for our programs."
