Beautiful Savannah State University – A Rich History and A Digital Leap Forward With CustomViewbook.

Established in 1890, Savannah State University is the oldest public historically black college in Georgia and the oldest institution of higher learning in Savannah. The university’s nearly 5,000 students select majors from 27 undergraduate and five graduate programs in three colleges: Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Business Administration and Sciences and Technology, and the School of Teacher Education. The lush, 201-acre campus sits adjacent to a salt-marsh estuary, minutes away from historic downtown Savannah and the Atlantic Ocean.

Savannah State was quick to see the benefits of the immediacy and personalization that mobile-based CustomViewbook provides student prospects. Wanting to showcase both Savannah State’s superb undergraduate and graduate school offerings, the school has chosen to implement the CustomViewbook platform with multi-instance, as well as the Recruiter iPad App.

Another fantastic new client–lucky us!

We’ve Gone Global. CustomViewbook™ Welcomes New Client, The African Leadership University!


We are thrilled to announce our new client, the African Leadership University. Described as the “Harvard of Africa,” ALU has two fantastic locations – the fast-growing, innovation hub of Kigali, Rwanda and the island paradise of Mauritius.

ALU’s stated mission: Create a more prosperous and peaceful Africa by developing the next generation of ethical and entrepreneurial African leaders. And it’s doing so with forward-thinking, immersive teaching methods and experiences designed by renowned leaders in education.

It didn’t take long for Justin MacDonald, V.P. of Marketing, to see CustomViewbook as part of the plan, “CustomViewbook fits our brand of creating innovative and interactive experiences rather than static or stale presentation of information. And now, we can take this concept early in the awareness and discovery phase of our prospect journey to offer a relevant and unique piece of content ­– while acquiring more prospects with whom we can build relationships via our content and nurture marketing.”

We are so happy to part of this pioneering group and their fast-growing student body. We’re on our way and have begun building out ALU’s CustomViewbook Digital Platform with the Recruiter iPad App!

Can’t wait to show you – soon!

Recruitment at University of Louisiana at Monroe

SUNY Oswego

CustomViewbook 3.0 + iPad Recruiter App = 2000+ Highly Qualified Leads
(and No Manual Entry!)


SUNY Oswego’s international recruiters wanted the ability to immediately capture inquiries at one on one meetings and college fairs, regardless of their location. Time and resources spent on inquiry cards and manual entry was inefficient and caused a lag time between meeting a prospect and re-connecting with them.

CustomViewbook’s Recruiter iPad App gave them the flexibility and efficiency they needed – and a lot more.
The recruiters were able to effortlessly capture prospect inquiries and interests, and like our web-based CustomViewbook, all the data was securely integrated right into their dashboard. As soon as our app detected internet connectivity, a personalized email was instantly sent to all SUNY Oswego student prospects, driving prospects back to their own personalized CustomViewbook.

SUNY Oswego’s highly-qualified leads went through the roof!
(And manual entry was eliminated.)

We Came, We “PACACed,” We Ate Chocolate.

Matt and James headed over to Hershey, PA to join PACAC for their annual conference. They were able to chat with many colleges and universities on how CustomViewbook can save them thousands of dollars on publication costs, increase their qualified leads, and provide a digital and interactive way for prospective studies to experience their institution. Oh, yeah… and they ate chocolate and rode roller coasters.
