SimpleCert version 2.0 is available with more features!

Hello from SimpleCert HQ! It’s been a crazy and exciting few weeks here in the Silicon Forest, and it is with great excitement that we are announcing the release of SimpleCert 2.0! A ton of effort, a lot of your suggestions and requests, and many long days and nights have gone into this important milestone. Thanks to all of you in the SimpleCert Community for your limitless enthusiasm and ideas. SimpleCert version 2.0 is available with more features!

There might still be some of you.. well, maybe a few…who have not yet heard what all the fuss is about. We think you might be out there, so let’s take a minute to recap why SimpleCert 2.0 is the greatest thing since Voodoo Doghnuts:

  • SimpleCert is now FREE to use! SimpleCert’s free account gives you full access to the Build, Send and Store modules that allow you to create and manage your certificate program. Also included is the ability to send up to 10 certificate notifications per month – for free. That’s over 100 certificates free per year!
  • SimpleCert now has both monthly, and “Pay as you go” Plans. With your account you have the option of signing up for a monthly account, or you can simply purchase credits as needed to complete your projects. The Pay as you Go option is great for users who don’t have regular needs for certificate distribution. The monthly option gives you a re-occurring allotment of credits per month, to complete your projects. For those of you who have infrequent needs for a tool like SimpleCert, the Pay as you go option is tailored exactly for you!
  • You can send out as many projects per month as you need! SimpleCert is available for use whenever needed – whether that‘s once a day, once a week, or once a year. Because you are no longer limited to sending out a set number of projects per month, you can utilize SimpleCert for your exact needs. Need to send out half a project today, and the other half next week? No problem! Got a busy month next month and need to send out 7 certification lists? Done! There are no longer any restrictions on how many times you can utilize SimpleCert.

From the very beginning, our goal has been to create a tool that provided a solution to the very painful and time consuming process of certificate management– and with the release of SimpleCert 2.0, we believe we are much closer to that goal. As always we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how to make SimpleCert work better for you. And thank you again to all of you who have had a direct hand in shaping this release. You rock.
Don’t forget to check out the Video Tutorials! Take a look at the FAQ if you have a questions, or reach out to support@simplecert.co at any time.

Sincerely,

The SimpleCert team

Introducing SimpleCert – the Online Certificate Generator Tool

Health and WellnessIntroducing SimpleCert – the Online Certificate Generator Tool

If you are reading this blog right now, we will buy you a cup of coffee. No Kidding! The first 10 people to send an email to inquiries@simplecert.net will get a Starbucks card in the mail, compliments of SimpleCert. What you may not realize while you are reading this blog, is that this is the first ever blog for SimpleCert! Being a new company, we’re racking up a ton of “Firsts” these days.  So in true Silicon Valley form, this is the point in our story where the couches are pushed to the walls, the kitchen table is cleared off, the Fruit Loops are put away and beer is passed around to the SimpleCert crew.. RIGHT?? Hardly. Truth be told, we’re nowhere near Silicon Valley (we ARE in the “Silicon Forest” but we know you have no idea where that is), the only couches in the office (not house) are used only for staff meetings, and the ping pong table hasn’t been used since.. forever (except as the table to conduct staff meetings on).

What has happened though, is this: A ton of hard work , sweat, and tears have been put into creating a tool that can solve a painful workflow process that many people face today: Finding a way to manage a Certificate Distribution process without using mail merges, spreadsheets, tacky certificate designs, sticky notes, BCC’ing mass emails, reams and reams of paper, etc.

SimpleCert is a Certificate Management System.

SimpleCert solves the difficult problem of automating how you build, send and store your certifications – and it works for any certificate, and for any certificate program. Let’s think thru a few scenarios:

  • You are the manager of your companies’ webinar program, and as a part of that program you provide online certificates of attendance to people – and you’ve been literally buried by the ongoing tasks on creating certificates, setting up and running mail merges, and then following up with attendees who claim to have never gotten your certificate, or need them re-sent. You my friend, need a Certificate Management System.
  • You are an elementary school teacher and at several points in the year you create certificates of achievement for your classes, and you are sick and tired of printing out hundreds of certificates – and then trying to distribute them to eager parents so they can hang them on their fridge. You need a Certificate Management System!
  • You manage live training classes all over the country for a professional certification board. As a continuing education provider you are not only required to distributive certification award, but you have to keep detailed records on every single recipient that you have awarded credits to – when they were distributed, often for a period of several years. You absolutely, positively need a Certification Management System.

 

Maybe you run an afterschool athletic program, or a Health and Wellness workshop… or a Jedi Master summer camp. We think you get the idea. Just like the best tools in your toolbox, SimpleCert can be used to for an unlimited amount of uses – because it’s the right tool for the job. Introducing SimpleCert – the online certificate generator tool.

So as you are looking around for an answer to how you can better manage creating and distributing your certificates, go ahead and sign up for the free 2 week trial. We are confident that you will love what you see. Let us know what you think too! Some of our early adopters have already been instrumental in shaping what SimpleCert is now, and where it’s headed. And be sure to check back for tutorials, tips and tricks… and maybe even a good story or two – probably not about Fruit Loops, but maybe about commuting by bike in the rain. It rains a lot in the Silicon Forest!
