If you live in Australia, you’ll know today is the Melbourne Cup (Australia’s biggest horse race) and with that comes the usual headache of organising the office sweep… Printing the coupons, cutting them out, calculating the winnings and collecting money from everyone! Painful! Well that was worst job in the agency for a few years until TAB created this little app just for the Melbourne Cup Sweeps.
The organiser selects how many sweeps (and the values) they want to run, and then gets a generated URL. You email that to all your co-workers to use and it automatically tracks and manages the entire sweep for you, including nice reports at the end so you can track all the money! So that’s my hot tip for today (go Alcopop!), click here to launch the website and get started. Oh and it comes complete with possibly the worst interface design I’ve ever seen!
