“Nobody wants to be the parent who shows up to an event an hour late or forgets to bring the team’s snacks, but unless you’re a parent who’s using PodKeeper, that could easily happen.”
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
"Getting Organized" is the second most popular New Year’s Resolution—after "Losing Weight." People start the year off with great intentions, yet only 8 percent of those who make resolutions successfully achieve their goals, according to a University of Scranton research study. However, there’s a new online tool called PodKeeper http://www.podkeeper.com that puts the odds of success in people’s favor.
PodKeeper—an online destination for family and group management—is a free service now available to help busy parents keep organized for all the roles in their lives, such as mom, dad, spouse, youth sports coach, scout leader, room mom, and much more. PodKeeper's mission is to create a generation of less disorganized parents.
"For parents trying to achieve their New Year’s Resolution of 'getting organized,' we’ve made it easy," says PodKeeper Co-Founder Nikki Sacks. "We realized that existing single-purpose technologies such as email, online calendars and to-do lists aren't helping parents enough. Parents need a simple-to-use online tool where they can manage their own calendars and easily communicate and coordinate with other parents."
The PodKeeper team understands the specific daily communication needs of parents like nobody else. From soccer and scouts to school classes and extracurricular activities, parents spend too much time and energy making sure their kids get where they need to go, at the right time, and with the right items. PodKeeper provides the essential tools to keep parents on top of it all.
"Nobody wants to be the parent who shows up to an event an hour late or forgets to bring the team's snacks, but unless you're a parent who's using PodKeeper, that could easily happen," says Sacks, a former business executive and mom of two school-aged children. "PodKeeper lets busy parents easily manage the day-to-day details of life and seamlessly interact with everyone in their groups in an extremely organized way."
A typical family has multiple weekly activities for each child, and dealing with all the small yet important details is simply unavoidable. With PodKeeper, there is one central location to manage it all. Parents can take control of their lives in many ways, such as keeping track of various conversations with different groups, creating to do lists of what to bring to an event, staying on top of upcoming events, and receiving helpful reminders.
To start getting organized today, parents can simply go to PodKeeper's online organizer from their computer or smart phone (iOS and Android platform phones including iPhone and Samsung Galaxy) and create "Pods," or online groups, for their family and each of their children's group activities. Groups that benefit from Pods include a school class, scout troop, art, music, dance, cheer, religious school, camp, playgroup, and a sports team (basketball, field hockey football, hockey, lacrosse, little league baseball, running, soccer, softball and volleyball). PodKeeper's web app was created to also help parents manage groups where kids aren’t directly involved, such as a social group, neighborhood, religious group, book club, PTA committee, and for teacher and parent communication.
The PodKeeper Co-Founders are available for interviews on the above content and topics including Back-To-School, Parent-to-Parent Communication, Online Communication and Organization Tools, Youth Sports Coaching, Classroom Engagement, Woman-Owned Business, and more.
PodKeeper is a free online organizer for parents where they create online groups called Pods to keep organized within their own family and with the parents of kids in shared group activities, such as a little league baseball team, a scout troop or a school class. PodKeeper has its headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina and is a graduate of the RevTech Labs startup accelerator program at Packard Place. PodKeeper is a woman-owned business and its management team is led by the husband-and-wife team of Steven Sacks and Nikki Sacks.
