We at CollegePlannerPro have been keeping our ear to the ground on developments related to COVID-19 and its effects worldwide, as most of you likely also have been doing. Since last week, we have taken measures to ensure that our team keeps safe and healthy, including a mandatory remote work policy for our employees for the foreseeable future.
Fortunately, several members of our team have been working in a remote capacity for years, and the rest are very familiar with this format. As a result, the transition to remote work has been quite smooth. We do not anticipate any issues related to being away from our physical office in Los Angeles. Our service relies on cloud-based third parties which are unlikely to experience service disruptions as a result of a health-related emergency. It is our hope and intention that, during this time, our members’ experience with CollegePlannerPro will not change. We aim to be a stable presence in a time of disruption and general anxiety.
With planned member events and upcoming conferences being moved to an online format or cancelled/rescheduled altogether, we are doing what we can to continuously provide resources and support to those of you who rely on CollegePlannerPro to manage the day-to-day of your practice. As a company that operates largely online anyway, one of the ways we feel we can help is by sharing tips, tricks and resources related to transitioning your businesses to an all-online format.
On Tuesday, CollegePlannerPro's very own Lisa Davis (Director of Sales & Marketing) co-hosted a webinar entitled "Tips for Working with Students Online" with Megan Stubbendeck, Managing Director of Operations at our sister company, ArborBridge, a leader in online tutoring and test preparation. The webinar focused on tactics for successful remote student meetings and highlighted certain features of CollegePlannerPro that may be particularly useful given current circumstances. Those of you who missed it or would like to watch again may view a recording of the webinar here.
Be well, and know that our thoughts are with you and your colleagues, students, families and friends during this uncertain time.
