College Interactive: Native iOS application development


School recruiting is an art. Colleges and Universities entice students to enroll with colorful marketing packages, ultimate campus visits, special programs and student blogs. But these days, with the rise of mobile use and social media, schools are offered an opportunity to create personalized connections to potential students.

On the other hand, prospective students are bombarded with large amounts of information and the majority of them are having a hard time finding the college of their dreams and successfully maturing through a cumbersome application process.

Rob Feldman turned to Kanda with an idea to transform college-student connection through technology. CollegeInteractive (CI) is an iOS-based mobile marketing and social media platform with advanced analytics capabilities aimed to connect Colleges and Universities with prospective students on their preferred communication platform.

Kanda software has allocated one iOS developer skilled in native mobile app implementation, UI/UX designer, two server-side developers and a QA engineer to design, develop and test College Interactive mobile app.
