What is Vepple?

Vepple is an always-on virtual experience platform created specifically for Higher Education student recruitment, with a focus on personalisation to increase conversion. It pulls interactive content and events together into one experience, ensuring prospective students can find relevant content, quickly.

Key features

Relevant content for all

Subject and study level filtering allows users to tailor their experience to see content only relevant to their choice. With the platinum package create custom filters to tailor content based on anything from location, to stage in the recruitment cycle, or parent vs prospective student.

Personalised calls-to-action

Vepple's powerful filtering means that every call to action can be tailored to a particular audience, making for hyper-relvant CTAs that are more likely to convert.

Guided Tours

Guided Tours are a great way of showcasing the best bits of your university. They pull together key spaces into one linear journey in order to tell a story.

The research suggests that they're particularly helpful for a Widening Participation audience, or, those who want a bit more guidance as they explore.

Live & on-demand events

The online events area provides a great experience for users, irrespective of the platforms being used to deliver a talk and/or a Q&A session.

Universities can continue to use the systems that they know and love including: Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate and Youtube, but they're all brought together in one place.

Deliver a sense of space and place

Our mapping tool ensures prospective students are able to understand the layout and proximity of facilities on each campus which we know from the research, is really important to them.

As with everything else, only content that matches the currently applied filters will show, ensuring that users only see the spaces that they're likely to use.

Data capture and lead generation

Vepple can be configured to require users to log-in to access certain restricted parts of the site.

Once regsitered, their profile information, along with usage behaviour including which posts they've viewed, which CTAs they've clicked and which events they've attended is automatically recorded by the site, ready for export/further analysis outside of Vepple.

We love our virtual experience, it looks great and we think it's sector leading. We were blown away when we ran our first virtual open day event on the platform in June 2020 - we have over 6,000 unique visitors in that one day and the average session duration was over 11 minutes. We are really please and can't wait to see the impact on our enrollment stats!
