Company-wide sports pools have become commonplace in all types of work environments – not just during March Madness or the NFL playoffs, but all throughout the year. Yupool is a web-app that helps businesses put together branded sports pools for employees, clients, and anyone else who wants to jump in and take part.
If you’re used to putting together sports pools with a notebook or an Excel spreadsheet, then you’re about to see Yupool as a huge step forward. Select a plan based on the number of pools you’re organizing and the number of people who plan to participate. Within minutes of getting set up, you’ll be able to choose a custom subdomain where colleagues can visit to see how the pools are shaping up. Rather than having each participant send emails with their predictions and bets, Yupool gives everyone personal accounts and invites them to sign on and enter their predictions directly into the site. Predictions can be edited and amended at any time without distracting the organizer from his or her work. Yupool will process the latest results within seconds of a game ending, and colleagues can check out the group Yupool site to see where they stand and how much money they can expect to collect at the end of the season.
Yupool is a great solution for businesses that want to get their clients involved in the action as well, since its sports pool sites always look professional and branded. In fact, organizations can even add their own logos and choose their own colors if they wish. Offices that regularly host sports pools – and people who are sick of the hassle involved in setting everything up and keeping results updated on their own – should give Yupool a try.
