foreUP Employee Highlight: Jeff Jensen, User Experience Designer

foreUP News

Every month, Marketing chooses an employee to highlight. We ask them to explain who they are, what they do, and why they do what they do. 

For February, we asked Jeff Jensen, who is a foreUP software User Experience Designer. We think he's great, and once you read his message below, we know you will too! 

Say hello to Jeff! 

During the week, if you can't find him in the foreUP office, he's likely setting an example for the rest of us by using his breaks to take long walks with his headphones in to soak in the beautiful Utah mountain views and vibrant seasonal colors. 


Hey, I’m Jeff Jensen. I work in foreUP’s Product team as a User Experience Designer.

 

Interviewer: What do you do at foreUP?

Jeff: My job is to make foreUP as easy to use as possible by designing it to fit the needs of your golf course.

I research and call courses to see how they like the software, and collect opinions on how we can improve. I then design solutions to problems you all are facing, and then reach out again to ensure that those proposed solutions solve those problems.

Jeff recently got engaged to the love of his life, Sotia Chheng, who he's been with for two years. Marital bliss begins March 17th! 

So, when you see those “How are we doing on a scale from 1-10?” pop ups in the software, those come from us on the product team. And we use your feedback, complaints, and how you are using the software to figure out ways to improve the system.

I’m also in charge of the self-service support system. Ideally, our software is designed in such a way that you don’t need a tutorial. (Click Read More to continue.)

UPgraded Golf Marketing Solution

foreUP News, Marketing Software, new features

(Okay, okay. It’s only January. But this is BIG!)

Even with all the barriers our email providers put up to weed out unnecessary messages, email marketing continues to be one of the best ways to engage your current player base, bring in repeat business, and drum up new customers.

But there are some roadblocks.

  • Impersonal emails don’t get opened.
  • Ugly emails don’t get viewed.
  • Cluttered emails don’t get clicked.
  • Irrelevant emails can hurt more than they help.

So we decided to build a tool to empower you to do more than just send emails and instead send great emails.

And... as the cherry on top….do it easily.

Introducing a Fully Rebuilt, Enhanced Marketing Module

The whole interface of our Marketing module has been fully redesigned to make it more intuitive and enjoyable to use. But the UPgraded interface is just the icing on the cake!

Our Product team has been working hard to make sure our software has everything you would get in other email marketing platforms—only now, you can do it right within foreUP!

So what are the biggest changes? (See all of them HERE)

foreUP 2017 Year In Review

foreUP News


When you’re two years old, one year represents 50% of your life.
When you’re 50, though, one year represents only 2% of your life.

This, they say, is why time seems to fly faster with every year you’ve lived. Thus, the things you do with each year are that much more meaningful as they shape so much and get seemly shorter and shorter!


While no one is perfectly efficient, we feel that our contribution to the year’s value is achieved by working tirelessly each and every day to be the best we can be. But what did our hard work achieve?

Take a look at our 2017 highlight video! 

 

 


To make this video, we looked back over the last year to see where we started and what we did. With this look back, we also get a renewed perspective about where we are going.

We are excited to share with you a review of some of our accomplishments and growth in this, our “2017 Year In Review” blog post.

A Letter from foreUP Founder and CEO

12 Days of Christmas, foreUP News

I hope you will forgive me for hijacking foreUP’s 12th day of Christmas.

I feel the need to share how much I truly respect and look up to each and every one of you. Running a golf course is not easy, it requires long hours, and at times is beyond stressful. You work from dawn to dusk. A simple 40-hour work week isn’t something you’ve seen in years. Tuesday you’re greeting customers in the pro shop, Friday you’re in your office organizing an 80-person tournament, and on Saturday you’re on the 13th fairway fixing a broken sprinkler head. You do it all, and it’s inspiring. This kind of work ethic isn’t often found in other industries and among other professionals. Thank you for being the example that powers the motivation within foreUP.
