Boocla | The booking app looking to be top of the class
Boocla lanched on Kickstarter at the beginning of July and received $27,316 in pledges from around the world in just 30 days.
Founded by Oi Labs, the digital innovation arm of award-winning Channel Island marketing agency Oi, Boocla is a booking web application for anyone who runs classes or courses.
"Exciting opportunities have arisen from the crowdfunding campaign as the project has gained Boocla exposure in the Channel Islands, UK, America and Australia" said Peter Grange, Oi Chief Executive Officer.
Investors from across the globe have backed Boocla, and Oi Labs are now moving forward with the next phase of development so that the clever class booking web application is ready to launch at the end of October.
Using the latest Google technology, Boocla allows people to create a website in minutes then easily add, manage, sell and receive payments for spaces at their classes or courses.
If you are an instructor, teacher, trainer or tutor, with Boocla you get a mobile-friendly website, efficient class booking system, free sub-domain, free hosting and free business cards for under $240 (about £160) a year.
What a fantastic accomplishment by Oi Labs, to have gained more than enough backing to move forward with the project. They continue to lead the way in taking digital innovation in Guernsey and the Channel Islands onto the international stage.
