There are many reasons to visit universities. Today, for the most part, those visitors are on their own. By integrating the TripProximity widget your visitors save time planning the logistics of their trip. And you save time answering “where should I stay?”

The TripProximity widget can replace your existing map tool or static driving directions. Then visitors can book hotel, flight or get dynamic driving directions to your location as needed. You free visitors from having to remember or copy the university address. The widget pre-populates the campus location information automatically.
There are so many reasons that people visit universities. Whether it is a prospective student and their parents, someone attending a concert, a board member coming in for a meeting, alumni attending a sporting event or people attending graduation, there is an opportunity to make life easier for them as they plan their trip. For the first time, you can help visitors to your university easily answer the question: “Where should I stay?” With TripProximity, your site becomes a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”
With TripProximity, every trip can make a difference. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings made on your site are given to your charity of choice annually. If your university is a 501c3 or has a Foundation that is a non-profit, then we will more than double our normal contribution and change the frequency to quarterly.
The TripProximity widget conforms to the HTML container added to your site. Choosing a location near visitors’ decision points creates greater value for you. We have a dynamic widget that can be used to trip-enable every event on your various event calendars. We can also use it to create unique widgets for your various campus locations.
It just takes minutes to configure and install your widget on your site or blog. Contact Chicke to discuss the impact TripProximity can add.
