As Moms, we all participate in so many groups and activities that it can be hard to keep everything straight. From volunteering as a classroom Mom to coaching your son or daughter’s sports team, getting groups organized can feel like managing the unmanageable, taking up time in already jam-packed days.
Enter Qlubb.com, which makes organizing your homeroom parent meetings, playgroups or book clubs incredibly easy. Qlubb is a web-based service that helps organize your real-life groups online, providing all the functions needed to easily and actively participate within a group. Qlubb allows you to connect, plan meetings, assign responsibilities and share pictures with all of the members of your group at once. Features include an event calendar, sign-up sheets, member rosters, a task reminder service, and bulletin boards, which every member of your community can access and update from their home computers.
Accessing and using the site is incredibly easy for even the least computer-savvy members. Qlubb’s secure sign-in protects group information, so only members of your group have access. However, participants don’t have to individually register and can simply sign in using the group password.
This site is not only amazing in the breadth of services it offers, but in the fact that it’s FREE. If you’re attempting to manage a sports team, play group, book club, or even a faith group, Qlubb provides a place to manage, organize, and publish events. There’s even broadcast email to send information easily to every member in the group.
As a teacher who’s researched more sites for classroom use than I care to think about, I was impressed with the ease of navigating the site to post both information and pictures. Qlubb also offers group calendars and automatic reminders.
Recognizing that busy people don’t have time or patience to “figure out” another web application, Qlubb has made it a principle philosophy to keep everything SIMPLE (simple interface, simple Qlubb creation, simple task creation, simple account management, etc.). It only takes 2 clicks to create a Qlubb, and 1 click to join a Qlubb.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Qlubb was founded by experienced and veteran entrepreneurs who busted their chops at blue-chip, white shoe firms and venture-backed startups including Oracle, DoubleClick, Booz Allen Hamilton, Bang Networks, and Goldman Sachs. Qlubb founders were inspired to build Qlubb after spending countless years “herding cats” in roles as board members of various non-profits, classroom parents, sports team coaches, and civic leaders.
Our lives are complicated. Qlubb is simple.
