KoHN Creative has assisted Eyre Bus, Tour & Travel in developing its new FieldTripMaker.com website to make planning student field trips easier and faster for teachers, administrators, church groups, homeschool groups, etc. As simple as 1-2-3, teachers can pick the date/time, destination, and itinerary for their trips. Within one business day, an Eyre Tour Professional returns a comprehensive price quote to the teachers. Eyre’s service arranges all the details, including transportation, meals, guided tours, and attractions for field trips of any duration. “This is exactly the kind of service I’ve been looking for” said Katie Noecker, a special education teacher in Howard County. “Our time is already very stretched, and fieldtripmaker.com makes everything go so smoothly.”
KoHN worked with Eyre with initial product concept, visual identity and web development of FieldTripMaker.com
This innovative service earned a “Best Idea” honor at the annual International Motor Coach Group, Inc. (IMG) Strategic Alliance Meeting held in Branson, MO in July. The honor is voted on by other motor coach companies throughout the United States. FieldTripMaker.com was also voted Most Innovative New Concept at the meeting, as well. The site was launched in late August 2009.
