Nearly three out of four people have decided against signing up for an activity they wanted due to the hassle of booking. Vimbly solves this problem by organizing previously disaggregated data and enabling instant reservations.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Vimbly (http://www.vimbly.com) announces the launch of its free platform, enabling users to to find & book recreational activities in under 10 minutes. This time-saving tool lets users choose from after-work hobbies and date ideas such as Italian cooking, glassblowing, tango dancing, and 150+ more -- all of which normally take hours to research and reserve. Vimbly presents availability for multiple activities on the same screen and users can book instantly.
“We've developed technology to sort and find what you're looking for extremely quickly,” said Sam Lundin, founder of Vimbly. “Nearly three out of four people have decided against signing up for an activity they wanted due to the hassle of booking. Vimbly solves this problem by organizing previously disaggregated data and enabling instant reservations.” Every activity on the platform is bookable just by clicking on one of its time slots.
The traditional process for finding a photography class entails searching Google, parsing through individual websites to find nearby locations and acceptable prices, then manually comparing schedules of various vendors to identify a class that works. Afterwards, users frequently have to exchange emails or phone calls with vendors. Instead, the Vimbly interface shows users multiple different photography lessons on a single map, with their pricing and availability on the same page. The user can book directly from this first page.
Users can answer questions like "what can I book for my date tomorrow night?" or “what is the closest fencing class to my apartment that works for my schedule?” Never before could users book the nearest class so quickly.
Vimbly curates its content, since the problem for users isn't lack of information -- the problem is information overload. Users are forced to unnecessarily research because information is poorly organized.
Vimbly is a free site to find and book recreational activities. Founded in 2011, it eliminates hours of research when reserving a pizza bus tour, mixology class, flying trapeze lesson, or more than 150 other activities.
