An avid camper for years and now a full time glamper, Simon Moeller learned first hand the need for an easy to use, informative Reservations App that would fill a need for both the camper and the campground business. Born in the millennial generation, Simon wasn’t satisfied with calling a campground to make reservations, or using an online reservations app that forced him to wait for a call from the campground to confirm his reservation. He wanted to be assured the campsite he chose fit his needs and fulfilled the amenities he wanted while allowing him to register online on his schedule, without waiting for calls to confirm his reservation. He also wanted to be able to see what the campgrounds and his site looked like, and a static, hand drawn map wouldn’t do for him, or most millennials. So what does a software architect and programmer do?? He builds a system that provides answers to the problem for the camper, while saving valuable time for the campground manager. Thus, through his eyes and the eyes of his baby boomer parents, Campground Commander was born.
