That would be excellent. I've been leveraging the BMGA site for information about individual tournament but would love a season long wrap-up!

Interview with Andreas Spaniol (AS), Sweden and Appsales AB

This interview was done the 30th of July 2012. The Interviewer is Hans Bergström (HB).

HB: First of all thank you for letting Minigolfnews interview you about the new and interesting marking possibility you have developed for the Minigolf clubs around the world? Can you tell us about this solution? What’s it about?

AS: Most people today use a smartphone and Appsales help companies and Sport Clubs with the opportunities offered by new technology. In other words, we develop and build mobile applications.

HB: And can you tell us something about the capacity of your company to help these clubs?

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.

Appsales have a uniqe offer to every Minigolf Sport Club. For 1 090 € your Club get an App both for IOS (iPhone) and Android. For more info visit; »Appsales Offer to Minigolfclubs

HB: What platform will you support?

AS: We support IOS (Apple) & Android at the moment. In year 2013 we will support Windows.

HB: You have a background as elite player in Sweden. Can you tell our readers about your Minigolf career?

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.

AS: Thanks Hans! If anyone is interested, please mail to andreas.spaniol@appsales.se alternatively call me on +46709650699
