Dec 01, 2009 — Santa Ana, Calif. — Now mobile visitors to Everest’s website can access campus and course information or begin the enrollment process to become a student from virtually any web-enabled cell phone, smart phone or other mobile Internet device.
With the launch of its mobile-optimized version of the website, http://m.everest.edu/, visitors can locate a nearby campus complete with map links and directions, review career training programs, check out online classes, see financial aid options, view frequently asked questions, request more information, as well as learn about student services, student resources, accreditation information, and the admissions and enrollment processes. There’s even a "Call Us Now," option that integrates the mobile browser with the user’s phone’s dialer, allowing for easy, safe dialing.
"We noticed that over the past 12 months, mobile traffic has been the fastest growing segment of our web properties," said Teresa M. O’Sullivan, Vice President of Marketing. "People want information right at their fingertips. We felt it was important to provide an excellent mobile browsing experience for these users."
When researching mobile website options, Everest developers felt it was important to optimize for more than just the smart phone device. They tested for a variety of mobile handsets and non-standard Internet devices in an effort to make the mobile browser experience much more user friendly and to better serve the schools’ increasing mobile traffic.
"It’s all about the engaging our mobile visitors and creating a positive mobile user experience," said O’Sullivan.
