Organising Events Made Easy
I don’t know about you, but I am one of those organiser types and I have just about had enough of organising my weekend rides and hikes using WhatsApp, Facebook, Email or some other cumbersome mechanism. No sooner have I mentioned the event or activity, am I bombarded with “where are we meeting?” and “do you have a GPX file of the route?”. And if you’re like our backend developer Flo, you will no doubt be asking “are there many hills?” or “are we stopping for coffee?”. Then of course you always have a few members of your group that will start a long conversation or banter by which time everyone has missed, lost or forgotten the invite and details you originally sent a few moments earlier! Frustrating and time consuming!
And then comes the day itself, and all the riders are out on the road heading to the meeting point but you don’t know where they are. You have to stop every few miles to make a phone call to find out where your buddy is. But there is no answer. They can’t hear the phone, or they are riding and concentrating on the road. Or they are in a blackspot.
No more! All those problems are gone. And that is why we built and tested Zuvolo.
In no more than a handful of clicks on your phone, you can organise your event, include a GPX file of the route, add a few markers for meeting points and coffee shops and that steep hill that Flo will dread, and send an invite to all your friends. Bish bash bosh! It’s that easy and quick. And on the day itself, just share your location on the Zuvolo map so that your friends can see where you are. Yes....it literally is that easy.
With Zuvolo being so close to launch, you’ll soon be able to try it out yourself and tell us what you think. We know we have more work to do, but I will guarantee that you will see and notice the difference.
So, calm down and vent no more. Click on the ‘Let me know when Zuvolo is released’ button below and you’ll soon be able to experience inner peace!
Have a good day out there and be safe!
