Stanford, CA – August 18, 2008
UpToUs launches a new social network for management of classrooms, sports teams and other trusted groups.
UpToUs (, a leader in helping parents of 3 to 14 year old children organize their busy schedules and connect with other parents, announces the launch of its free, public beta online networking service that targets trusted groups of parents. The service makes it simple for parents to securely manage their children’s classrooms, sports teams and extracurricular activities in a single online location. It also enables parents to network with other parents in their groups and to find local service providers based on parent feedback. The public release of the beta system builds on the valuable lessons learned during the private beta trial of the UpToUs service.
“We’re very excited to release UpToUs for widespread use. The feedback we received from parents using the private beta version helped us build a richer experience with more features and better functionality. We’re very pleased that a number of leading Bay Area sports, school programs and daycares will be using UpToUs during the coming school year. The great thing about UpToUs is that the room or team parent gets access to all the tools they need to manage their group and it takes just minutes to start a community and invite group members”-, said Yuval Spector, UpToUs CEO.
It takes less than 5 minutes to establish a community. The web site includes built in applications geared specifically to parents with children in day care programs and elementary and middle schools. The applications include a parent directory, centralized calendar(, an announcement system, photo sharing, a volunteering organizer, a discussion panel, a quick polling feature and more. A personal organizer allows parents to view all communities from one screen. The service also encourages socializing by allowing parents to post professional interests and hobbies and search for local service providers based on the ratings of other parents (
