PRESS RELEASE: eola wins silver in the 2020 One Planet Awards Startup of the Year category

by Daniel Steele

We're happy to announce that eola has been named as one of the winners in the prestigious One Planet Awards in the Startup of the Year Business Cloud/SaaS category. The One Planet Awards is the world’s premier awards program honoring best in business and professional excellence in every industry from around the world. 

Judges from a wide range of industries around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2020 award winners. Winners will be celebrated and presented their awards during a virtual awards ceremony in December.

Our work in building a booking and management platform has helped to bring the outdoors online - fast, simple and efficient. It is an excellent operating system which businesses are able to use and maintain with ease, no matter how tech savvy or busy they are. 

The experience industry is one of the most negatively impacted through the effects of covid-19. Yet, eola has seen rapid growth, both in terms of the number of experience providers using their booking and management system, and their booking volume. eola has helped providers stay open while abiding by new restrictions. We've also helped many businesses manage the overwhelming demand that followed once the restrictions softened during the summer. Our partners can remain safe in the knowledge that they have an online management system that will continuously help drive conversion and save time, while not costing them a penny if they do not take any bookings.
