Project Brief

Simple Scheduling App (SSA) saw the potential in the market and spoke to a few potential customers for the platform to define what the minimum features that are required to launch the platform into market:
- Manage Program Information
- Manage schedules
- Manage Break Clients
- Manage Break Data
- Client ROI Reporting
- Schedule Exports for playout systems
- Auto placement of breaks into schedules

Project Need

Small to medium broadcasters don't have a cost-effective product which can manage all their advertising spots, clients, contacts and schedules in one place that is web based. Previously tools like excel were used to manage these type of activities and in multiple spreadsheets. Simple Scheduling is one place to let you do all these activities and give more then one person a consolidated view of these activities.

User Experience

The product started it's life as a single user excel spreadsheet and has been transformed into a responsive multi-user web based SaaS product. We did some testing of the excel prototype and also looked at similar products to find the best experiences for users.

Project Marketing

Simple Scheduling were proud of their updated app, making sure to emphasise the new features and design on their website.

The product was marketed through the following channels:
- Social media (Twitter primary source, Facebook and Instagram)

Project Privacy
