Lifeguard University is a certified lifeguard training program provider offering free resources, rescue skills, and certified training. They use ipushpull for their scheduling system so that everyone can have easy access to it on the web. They currently use it to show the U.S. Olympic Trials Swimming schedule.
Excel to WordPress for Retail Price Lists
A rental company based in Bluffton Indiana rents out equipment from brick pavers to bouncy castles. The rental prices vary for 4 hours, overnight, 24 hours, and weekly rentals of equipment. To be able to maintain and easily display the prices, Bluffton Rentco uses ipushpull to display their Excel spreadsheets of rental pricing lists and embed them into their WordPress site. Any changes Bluffton Rentco make to their pricing on Excel, automatically updates their website.
Excel to WordPress for Rankings
A company that runs a Pietenpol building program in which they bring together builders with mentors. This unique company teaches members how to create EAA 690 aircraft with a wood and fabric airframe. Participants are then able to work on builds to earn credits that count towards their payment for flight training in the future. To keep track of the total credits earned and the total credits remaining for each builder, they use a spreadsheet. With ipushpull they are able to display that spreadsheet onto their website so all the builders are able to see how many more hours they need to work, to attain their flight training. What a great idea!
