The app helping busy families get their Life Sorted

In today’s busy world time management is essential – not only to ensure we keep pace with our everyday responsibilities and maintain a healthy work-life balance, but also for our wellbeing.

Finding this balance shouldn’t be something you achieve ‘someday’ and with Life Sorted, it doesn’t have to be.

Life Sorted is a family organiser and communications app designed for the busy, modern family developed by Queensland female founder, Jo Burgess.

This savvy digital solution is now among the highest rated family organiser apps on the iTunes App Store and has been downloaded more than 22,000 times across the globe.

Life Sorted Founder, Jo Burgess said support from Advance Queensland has played a fundamental role in getting her startup on its journey to success.

“Advance Queensland have been incredibly supportive from the beginning of our innovative journey and as Queenslanders, I think we are so fortunate to have access to such wonderful programs,” Jo said.

“As a founder, I have attended many events, made fantastic contacts and received invaluable support and advice through the Advance Queensland network.

“In 2018, we were fortunate to become round 4 recipients of the Ignite Ideas Fund, receiving a $100,000 grant that enabled us to successfully execute our project.

“This allowed us to effectively commercialise and launch our app into the Australian market, along with a soft launch into seven other countries including UK, Canada and the USA.

"Since launching, we have achieved more than 22,000 downloads, across eight contries.

“We’ve built a stable, modern technology platform that specifically solves the intricate problems facing busy, modern families.

“Our sophisticated and automated on-boarding system has enabled us to deliver a stellar user experience through understanding user behaviour data and insights – and we have proven that we have a solid platform, which is now ready to scale.

“I recommend and encourage businesses starting out to get involved and apply for the programs available through Advance Queensland. I found that the preparation and process of applying for these programs was productive and extremely helpful for our business.”

The Life Sorted app offers a range of features to help you manage your busy family schedule. Whether you are planning a family event, keeping on top of the kids sporting schedule or simply wanting to keep a shopping list that everyone can update on the run – the cost-effective app helps you balance your everyday schedule, leaving more time to enjoy life!
