CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WotNow, a very ground-breaking calendar app for busy parents, youth and professionals, has been released across Chicago. WotNow contains events of over 7000 Chicagoland organizations including entertainment, schools, parks, libraries, museums, sports, churches and businesses. Thousands of parents and youth from across Chicago are active early users of WotNow.
WotNow offers a smart filled calendar experience for today's busy users, who are drowning in a deluge of information flowing via emails, social media posts and texts. "Many users scramble to keep track of dates and often double-book themselves or miss critical events. We thought it will make life easier to have these dates delivered to us automatically," says CEO and Founder, Deepa Salem.
Users download WotNow for free from the Apple App store or Google Play store. They then track their favorite organizations and state their interests. WotNow then automatically drops the events and deals they need to know right in a calendar and keeps updating them continuously. Users can view, RSVP, share and get reminders to attend events and hence, enrich their lives without much stress. Users collect reward points for using and sharing events, which can be redeemed for tickets and deals.
Organizations can ensure that their event information reaches and is retained by their audience and is not lost in the social-digital noise. With cutting-edge features such as machine learning and geo-fencing, users get notifications about events that match their interests, availability and that are near their location.
Businesses can offer time-based deals for low traffic times or for cancelled appointments. These deals will be delivered to users who can accept them via their calendar itself.
