Shovler Continues to Grow!

We have been too busy with the recent snow storms that we haven’t had time to even update the blog!

We just wanted to let everyone know that we are still operating and continue to complete jobs throughout the country. We have now completed jobs in 7 states and 2,500 snow shovelers registered on the platform!

The media attention that we are getting has also been amazing. This week we were featured or mentioned in the NY Post, CNBC, NBC News, ABC, and other news outlets. We really appreciate the attention we have been getting and hope that we can continue to live up to the hype!

Right now we are focused on making sure that users have the best experience possible. We have received feedback from several users that they are having trouble with the autofill in the maps. We have our tech team working on this and plan to upload a new version of the app ASAP with this issue fixed.

For the time being, if you are having problems with the autofill, you can still move the pin on the map to the location that you need done. Yes it is tedious, but it works. Just zoom out and then zoom into the location that you want done.

It looks like we have a little quiet before the next snow storm. During the meantime, Snow shovelers, please sign up your Stripe accounts! If you want to confirm that your Stripe account works before the first snow storm to ensure that all payments go through – please email as at admin at Shovler dot com to setup a time to do so.

 

Opening Operations in Colorado!

Today marked our first day operating in Colorado!

We originally weren’t going to focus much on this state, as it already has a very significant snow infrastructure, but we decided to give it a test run today anyways due to the major snowfall last night.

We were amazed at the demand for the app both from people in need of snow removal and snow shovelers looking for work. Hundreds of people have downloaded the app in Colorado over the last 24 hours.

Most of the jobs that have been completed so far on the Shovler App have been in the larger Denver area, and the average wait time for a snow shoveler to accept a job was under 2 hours.

We have been seeing lots of snow shovelers registering in Colorado Springs and Boulder too, and once we see many of them with Stripe accounts we will market more heavily in those areas.

Overall, today has been an exciting day for Shovler and we are happy to now be serving major cities in Colorado.

For those of you that have been happy using the app, please share the word on social media! The more jobs and snow shovelers we have registered, the more useful the app will be in the future.

Update:

The Gazette took note of our launch in Colorado Springs and Denver today!
