See how Kent State University used Visual Schedule Builder to streamline their processes.
Case Study Outline:
Kent State University implemented Visual Schedule Builder in mid-2016 to streamline the student schedule planning and registration process. The software has been resounding success for both students and staff.

Prior to the university acquiring VSB, students and advisors had to sit down with a home-made spreadsheet to work out how to fit their required and desired courses together. Course times and locations had to be manually cross-referenced and checked for clashes. Once students and advisors had come up with a timetable that worked, students registered for classes online and often it was a race against clock, given that in-demand classes could fill up by the time students had mapped out their schedule.
The VSB Solution:
Once implemented, the VSB website saw higher levels of traffic than expected and students have praised its visually appealing, color-coded interface. By making the scheduling process simpler and more intuitive, VSB has freed up time for advisors to focus on other parts of their crucial role.
