It’s with a heavy heart and an excitement for the future that I share this news: on April 1, 2014, I will close Quipol’s proverbial doors and shut down the social polling application.
Thousands of you have built polls to learn from and interact with the world, and I want to thank you now for your patronage, your feedback, and all the excitement that you have brought to my life.
I owe you an explanation, so here it is: We’re not out of money, and we’re not out of passion—on the contrary, this journey has ended so that another one can begin.
One and a half years ago, I started building a new application with three other gentlemen, with the hopes of bringing a new level of simplicity, elegance, and usability to business-based education and training. I wanted to take everything I’d learned at Quipol about dead-simple workflows and ease-of-use and bring it to a market filled with products where the opposite was the rule.
The result is a product called Lesson.ly, and it’s working. Over the past year, we have released and iterated upon initial versions of the application, signed client after client, and partnered with an amazing lineup of investors. We are now set to bring a new vision of training and education software to the business world. I would love to run both companies, but there’s just not enough time in the day.
For inquiries about exporting your data, email firstname.lastname@example.org before March 25, and we will get you your information.
Again, thank you. If you have any questions, I’m here to help.
