AS: Appsales is one of the leading companies in developing applications in Sweden. Some of our customers are Samsung, Project Playground, JCDecaux and Björklöven. Our promise to all customers is that we always deliver more than what we promise at a fixed price.

Our headquartered is located in Stockholm, but our development team is located in both the U.S. and India with over 50 contracted developers.

HB: Can you tell us why a club should invest in this technology? What can be the upside for the club?

AS: The majority of consumers now use a smartphone which companies and Sport Clubs can use to better communicate and enhance the experience for their customers.

With contact information and Appsales multiple offer page you can increase sales both on site and lure customers back.

With the Appsales course guide, rules, tips and tricks you give the customers a better experience on site.

HB: Can the app come in different flavours with different options?

AS: We currently have a uniqe offer where we have developed what we believe responds to the primary need. If the club want to have a more advanced solution it will not be a problem, everything is possible.

HB: Do you have any live customers on this technology yet?

AS: We have developed the application together with the Malmö Adventure Golf, owned by Hans Olofsson who is a multiple champion in minigolf. Why he chose to get a application you can read on; »Appsales Minigolf App Information

HB: Can you give an approximate price indication of what it will cost for a club to build an app of their own?

AS: Marketprise for an application like the MinigolfApp cost about 5 000 €. Appsales have developed a unique system that makes it more costeffectiv to produce. Our vision is to enable every company and Sports Club should be able to afford to use the new digital technology available in smartphones.

AS: That's right. I started playing minigolf when I was 15 and ended when I was 31 years old when I had children. Time is not enough, unfortunately ...

I have some results on the course I am more proud of. I was a team member when Malmo won the Swedish championship in 2002 and we followed that up with a bronze medal in the European Cup in Eibenstock same year.

I also have two bronze medals the Swedish championship, one on a Felt (2003) on EB (2001).

HB: Any thoughts of a comeback on the course again?

AS: When my oldest boy gets a little older I think about getting back...

HB: Can you see a future where completion players bring their own smartphone to tournaments and use them as scorecards connecting to Bangolf Arena for live results?

AS: We are currently in the development of a scoresheet toghether with Hans Olofsson. So it is not too far in the future…

HB: Thank you for sharing with our readers this interesting new opportunities and good luck with this project.
