CoursePro nominated for Best Technology in Participation!

Best Technology for Participation.

We like the sound of that! (though we know we haven’t been awarded it yet…)

Still; being nominated at the Yahoo Sports Technology Awards means the world to us. At the end of the day, we exist to help our customers get more people into more lessons. And we’re only a small bunch working on CoursePro, so this is a big deal!

Keep your fingers crossed for us in May, when we rub shoulders with organisations such as FIFA and NASCAR…and find out if we’ve won!

The Pituitary Foundation – Our Charity of the Year.

We couldn’t be more excited to announce this!

If you know CAP2, you know we love supporting a good cause.

Whether it’s Coffee Mornings for Macmillan Cancer Research, or our yearly Swimathon for Marie Curie and Cancer Research UK. Or simply our regular donations to our local homeless shelter!

So when we discussed taking our charitable activities to the next level with our sister companies, we pounced on the opportunity…

Find out more about our aims, and the fantastic work the Pituitary Foundation does, on our blog here!

Another year at CAP2!

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a great 2018, with lots of fun memories and experiences to look back on.

But before we get to that…we’d love to share our highlights of the year with you. Check out our blog post here!

Summit round two; bigger and better.

The summits are here to stay!

When we organised our first summit in 2017, we simply hoped to get some time face-to-face with our customers, partners and friends. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we knew one thing. CAP2 is different to other, faceless software companies; we want our community to know our names, and understand our goals!

Our team came away knowing that this was something we wanted to do more; and that nothing could replace meeting our customers face-to-face.

So, in 2018 we set ourselves the target of running three summits…and succeeded! From our partner events with Xn Leisure and Gladstone, to our own CoursePro summit, we met with over 70 customers.

Looking ahead to 2019, we have even more ambitious plans…..so make sure to follow us on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to keep up-to-date!

CoursePro’s first scrum!

CoursePro launches into Rugby!

CoursePro might have started out in just one or two sports. Today however, we’re used by 1000’s of sites for over 40 different sports!

It’s tough for that first club in a new sport; to take the first step, and change how they run their courses completely.

So we’re really pleased to announce the latest addition to our family; Rugby League, via the friendly and community-orientated Pilkington Recs Rugby League!

 

We visited their training camp in St Helens, to find out more about this local club pioneering new technology in their sport:

Establishing a tradition…

Our family get-together!

Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Easter Sunday, the 5th of July or Halloween, we all love our family get-togethers.

What’s ours here at CAP2? Probably…

The Swimathon! A yearly charity race, swum in teams to raise funds for charities such as Marie Curie and Cancer Research UK, which has become an annual tradition for our team.

Throughout the cold, winter months, we train in local pools and keep each other motivated; so that when we all meet in Spring, we’re ready to smash our goal!

This year we entered two teams, a new record for CAP2! With customers, friends and family turning up to support, we can’t wait to make Swimathon an even bigger and better event next year.

That Eureka moment

That Eureka moment

The founders, Pete Walker and Ross Mccaw sit poolside at their local Swimming Club, as they watch on, pieces of paper are flying about and stressed staff are struggling to organise the Club. They wonder if there is an easier way to organise the members and lessons.

The Club housed Pete and Ross for a number of months as the pair performed ongoing development. The St James Street Pool in Taunton has since relocated to a new site, but the old building remains the birthplace of CAP2 (then Cap2 Solutions) and CoursePro!

An article on its closure, and picture in tow can be found here.
