About WakeUpLand And How We Started
The concept of WakeUpLand.com was created in early 2001 while I was a college student attending the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, FL. I was having a hard time waking up in the morning for class, so I spent some time looking around online for a wake up call service. I realized that there weren't any wake up services available at that time. This was the moment that the “lightbulb” came on and WakeUpLand was born.
Sensing an opportunity, I worked out a partnership with a phone-only based wake up service. I would take the orders through WakeUpLand.com and call them in to their phone system, manually adding each call. This process lasted for a very exhausting couple months. Many times I would have to remain awake at all hours of the night to make sure that calls were added, often having to place the wake up calls myself if the system wasn't working correctly.
Fortunately, around the time I was ready to run for the hills and give up, I met a friend of a friend who happened to be a Computer Science major at UCF. After a few discussions about what could be done to streamline the ordering process, we decided to convert WakeUpLand into a fully automated system. We broke away from the phone based calling system and setup a state of the art outbound calling server to place the calls for us!
The result of our efforts is one of the most advanced online wake up call systems in the world! You, our valued customers, have the ability to add, modify, and delete your calls through your own personal control panel - 24 hours a day 7 days a week. With the additional of our reminder call service and optional wake up call enhancements, including daily weather reports, fun facts, stock quotes and more - WakeUpLand.com has revolutionized the wake up call industry. Our new system is far more advanced and reliable than I could have ever dreamed possible. With new features being released constantly and many more in the works, WakeUpLand customers will have more options than ever before.
Recently we've begun to expand our services beyond wake up calls. Our latest addition to the company is our DialMyCalls service. This service allows you to take advantage of the power of voice broadcasting and allows you to easily record and send a message to a list of phone numbers in seconds. Everything is entirely web based so you don't need any expensive calling equipment or setups. With our huge call capacity we can deliver calls to 10 or 10 million people quickly and easily, for only pennies a call.
We're also happy to announce that we now have added an API for developers to quickly interface their websites and their software with our outbound calling servers. You now have the ability to create any kind of calling application that you could dream of. We off this with no setup fees or minimum monthly requirements to meet, meaning you only pay for the minutes used at the end of each month.
We want to thank all of our customers over the years and invite new ones to come and join us for this exciting new chapter in our business. Feel free to contact us at anytime if you have comments, questions, or suggestions. We built this system to cater to you and enjoy hearing your feedback. Thank you again and stay tuned!
Thank you to all of our current and future customers!
