"Our deep understanding of the market allows us to provide solutions that address both student and school needs, and also anticipate what is on the horizon. HEG's growth is a direct result of those solutions at work and our ability to deliver impressive results for our clients."
HEG's latest innovative offering is CampusTourVR, an immersive video technology that leverages virtual reality capabilities. Recognizing a shift in how prospective undergrads prefer to engage with universities and consume information, HEG developed the marketing tool to bring customized campus tours to students, helping them choose the school that is right for them.
