Once you’re ready to make your mobile tour live, a monthly fee applies. Your tour will work on any smartphone, like an Android®, Blackberry®, or iPhone®, or on a tablet device like the iPad®.
Orient Your Visitor: GPS-enabled mobile phone tours have a location-awareness feature that helps create a custom experience for your campus visitors. Smart street maps integrate with Google® Maps and are ideal for guiding visitors around campus or providing directions to nearby points of interest within the mobile app.
Provide the Most Current Information: TourSphere™ provides a unique web app that is updated in real time. Update it as often as you’d like with campus events, temporary exhibits, or seasonal points of interest around the college or university.
Give a Tour on Their Time: Campus tours are limited to specific times when school is in session, but what about those students who visit during vacations or at off-times? Give prospective students the opportunity to take a tour no matter when they arrive to campus by letting them access a rich, multimedia app on their smartphone.
Appeal to Many Guests: Take advantage of the technology that prospective students are already carrying. A recent study predicted that by 2013, the number of smartphones worldwide could reach 1.82 billion and continue to climb. TourSphere™ tours work on ANY device with a web browser and can be published as native iPhone® apps at a fraction of the price of developing one from scratch.

Gather Valuable Data: TourSphere™ mobile tour apps deliver valuable real-time analytics about your campus visitors and allow you to create surveys for immediate feedback that will help you improve your tour or give you a sense of prospective students’ interest after touring campus.
Provide Tours in Multiple Languages: TourSphere™ offers multi-language support, providing an accessible virtual campus tour option for foreign students. In fact, a virtual tour app in their own language may be preferable to a tour led by an English-speaking student.
