Information transfer could get stressful from time to time, especially if it’s through emails. It is very common for people to allow their inboxes pile up because most of the messages are junk mail. This in turn makes it harder for a person to sort out useful mail. Everyone using e-mail suffers with the same issue, but two 24 year olds were brilliant enough to solve the problem. Among these two people was Jojo Hedaya, who partnered with his friend to develop an e-mail organising tool called Unroll.Me. He has gone on to market the product, and is currently receiving the plaudits for his work. In his own words, “Unroll.Me was born out of frustration” and he was surprised no major ISP provided an efficient cure to the problem.
The duo met in Israel during their college years and formed a friendship. It was not long before Jojo Hedaya discovered how similar they were to each other. For example, they shared the same birthday, grew up the same city and attended Jewish high schools as kids. This factors only made the friendship stronger and more genuine. Even the rabbi found a reason to pair them up, as they were the only ones to have blackberry phones. Unfortunately Jojo Hedaya did not graduate from college, instead jumping head first in the startup. He didn’t want to waste time and found out he had skills and the expertise to make it successful. Either way Jojo Hedaya would not advise anyone to drop of university if they do not have the necessary skills for a startup.
The application sorts through thousands of mail in no time and compiles them into a “roll up”. The feature sorts through subscription, newsletters and updates, grouping them accordingly. This gives the user a chance to look through the groups and unsubscribe from them. On the other side, if anything interests the user, he or she could as well keep up with the latest information. To make matters easier, the user could select a time he or she wants the application to sort through the email account.
Nothing disturbs a person like a junk mail. It is hard to ignore it as it appears on the screen and beeps at times to catch one attention. And with numerous primary emails coming in the inbox, the junk mails could at times make you miss that critical email. Jojo Hedaya and co-founder Josh Rosenwald had experienced this problem for a while, and this prompted them to start Unroll.Me.
Advantages of Unroll.Me
According to Josh Rosenwald, Unroll.Me was born out of sheer frustration. It is estimated that about 80% of the emails are mostly subscriptions, newsletters, and updates. Unroll.Me works by scrutinizing the inbox within seconds to compile all subscriptions to a single email through a process called “The Rollup.”
When compressed as one email, a user could skim through to view what interests them. One of the advantages of “The Rollup” is that one could pick a time when to view these junk emails.
Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald are two professionals who a couple of similarities. They have similar interests and even share the same birthday. They attended the same schools and have been friends for a long time. This comparability is what has made them develop and lead Unroll.Me successfully. The success of this business is attributed to their common goals and unity.
