SYDNEY, NSW - Nov. 10, 2014 - OneFitStop, the on-the-go cloud based SME platform and online community, has managed to secure an initial investment ahead of its $750k investment roadmap for 2015. The seed funding will be utilized for the finalization of OneFitStop’s innovative platform and rollout into the Australian fitness industry. Following a soft launch at the Australian Health and Fitness Expo in 2014 and the recruitment of nearly 1000 Beta testers in the same year, the company attracted the attention of Sydney based Angel investor, Lewis Bloch.
OneFitStop, which launched in the fitness industry this year, has been in a development and a Beta testing phase since 2012, with efforts based solely on the development of an effective and efficient platform for micro and small businesses operating on the go. “OneFitStop allows small and micro businesses to manage and grow, by focusing on all the things that businesses hate doing, but need to do”, so says Co-founder David Zeff.
A veteran of the fitness industry, Mr Zeff created OneFitStop alongside tech expert and co- founder Jarron Aizen after noticing many pitfalls of the industry, which lead to its notorious high turnover rate and poor business performance.
The platform, which has already received the support of the Australian Government and of key figures in the Australian Fitness Industry, focuses on seamless automation of many of the necessary processes to manage and grow a business. Mr Aizen, who works closely with its technology development, believes that the platform’s success relies on its ease of use and accessibility: “Our goal is to create an innovative, highly accessible business and communication platform which will be available both online and offline in app form across mobile, tablet and computer mediums. We believe this will create a dramatic improvement in the day to day lives of small businesses across industries where services are dominant.” he said.
OneFitStop expects to initially launch its finalized platform for the Australian fitness industry, where 30,000 personal trainers and 3.3 million Australians are currently active in, by April 2015. The company intends on working closely with key industry bodies, governmental and industry associations to effectively facilitate its market acceptance.
