£75,000 Bridging the Gap Recipient - November 2014
Online Scout Manager was created back in 2011 as a system to help scout leaders easily manage their groups. Since then Online Guide Manager and Online Brigade Manager have also been formed and Online Youth Manager (OYM) looks after all of these systems.
They have a growing base of over 100,000 leaders, give associations worldwide and more youth organisations approaching them every day.
The company requested funding to support the creation of an agnostic software version that will be used by global community without further bespoke development.
Paul Jones, Director of OYM, said:
OYM has achieved exceptional growth, and with the support of the LEP Grant, we have been able to rapidly increase the size of our professional team for the delivery of our systems on a worldwide basis. We now have an excellent platform to support our continued growth and the ability to make the most of the great opportunities available to us.
