Texting made easy for recruiters and counselors

Don’t let your school be
“old school.”

Texting is pervasive and convenient across campuses everywhere.

It's less intrusive for students than a phone call. Recruiters get faster responses than sending an email.

Group messaging


Group messaging

Managing your admissions department is hard. Throughout the recruiting year, the wave of communications from prospective students can be overwhelming. Conversations get lost. Students wait too long for responses, while other universities follow up on time.

With group messaging coming in early 2017, you can manage all of your department's communications more easily and deliver faster response times to student inquiries. Department leaders can assign any admissions counselor or university recruiter messages and direct communication to the right person. You never have to worry if messages sent to students on time.

Increase efficiency from employees and more interest from students. They simply receive and return texts to you, so your team can guide them through the recruiting process.

Access Captivated anywhere - With the Captivated mobile app, your university can manage student and recruiter communication on-the-go. Our app can be used on any Desktop, iOS or Android device.
