Snap Send Solve on Channel 10 News

Snap Send Solve was featured on the Channel 10 News, Channel 7 News and the Herald Sun recently!

Snap Send Solve is about solving problems. We understand that when people see a problem, such as graffiti, hard rubbish, fallen trees, broken playground equipment, water leaks or potholes on the street, they might not know who is responsible for getting it fixed.

By categorising incident types and assigning them to the appropriate service provider based on the user’s location, Snap Send Solve makes reporting issues a quick and simple thing to do. It also gives users the satisfaction of contributing to getting things fixed in their local communities.

The app is available on both the App Store and Google Play, and is used by over 60,000 people around Australia.

With over 40,000 reports submitted via the app in the past six months, Snap Send Solve helps users report issues to their local councils and service providers in a quick and easy way.

Benjamin Lea getting his head shaved for 2016 World's Greatest Shave

On Friday 8 July, our very own iOS Developer, Benjamin Lea, participated in the 2016 World’s Greatest Shave.

Ben had his head shaved at Outware’s Melbourne office to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation; a charity that not only massively supports research into blood cancer, but also provides a support network for the patients, friends, and families of those living with these diseases. Thanks to many generous donations, Ben raised over $900 for the the Leukaemia Foundation.

The Leukaemia Foundation is Australia’s peak body for blood cancer, funding research and providing free services to support people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders, and their families.

Well done to Ben and everyone else who participated in the 2016 World’s Greatest Shave.
