Whether you’re coordinating a group or trying to stay on top of your family schedule, you will not believe what you can get done in just 5 minutes by using PodKeeper.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 22, 2015
PodKeeper (http://www.podkeeper.com) is excited to announce today’s release of the second generation of their product and website at PodKeeper.com, while the company is at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco. With an enhanced interface and user experience, particularly on mobile, PodKeeper helps parents and group leaders keep organized like never before – for free. PodKeeper has quickly become an indispensable online tool for parents to manage their hectic lives, and with the latest version the company expects a surge in growth.
“Since our initial launch, we’ve been listening to our customers and working to make PodKeeper even better,” said Steven Sacks, PodKeeper Co-Founder. “People have loved using PodKeeper, which make it really simple to plan events, provide updates to the group, have discussions, and coordinate group logistics such as requesting volunteers. Collaborating with our customers helps us achieve our goal of creating the ultimate communication tool for parents. In fact, the more people use PodKeeper, the more they have smart ideas for enhancements. Whether you’re coordinating a group or trying to stay on top of your family schedule, you will not believe what you can get done in just five minutes by using PodKeeper.”
As families settle in to their back-to-school routines, the challenge of keeping their schedules organized is evident. PodKeeper is available to help the millions of room parents, scout leaders, coaches, committee organizers and volunteers who give their time to keep their families and groups running smoothly.
A “Pod” is a private online group where any real-world group can keep organized. By creating a “Pod” for each group in their lives, parents can easily manage all the details in one place. Within a Pod, members can schedule events, get RSVPs, manage sign-up lists and share files—whatever the group needs. PodKeeper helps parents get more done in less time than they would using an email list, which is what most groups use today.
“We are excited to be participating in Startup Alley today at the Disrupt SF conference and letting the consumer technology industry know about the second generation of PodKeeper,” continued Sacks, an online product management veteran who is based in Charlotte, North Carolina but is originally from New York City. “We’re also looking forward to talking to angel investors from the Silicon Valley, New York and others areas around the country to let them know about PodKeeper’s plans for growth.”
PodKeeper is ideal for:
- Schools: Classes (typically set up by Room Parents or Teachers); PTA committees
- Scouts: Troops for girl scouts, boy scouts and other scouting organizations
- Sports: Team and individual sports including soccer, baseball, softball, t-ball, football, flag football, lacrosse, cheer, dance, gymnastics, cross-country, karate, hockey, swimming, golf and tennis
- Non-Kid Activities: Social and religious groups, planning a group vacation, non-profit committees, and much more
To start getting organized today, parents and group leaders can simply go to PodKeeper.com from their computer, tablet or mobile phone (iOS and Android platform phones including iPhone and Samsung Galaxy) and create a Pod for free.
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 school class, scout troop, sports team and more. 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.
