OfficePool originally came about for the need of a Macintosh-based NCAA college basketball tournament pool manager.
Since 1988 we ran a pool using nothing more than Excel (entering picks, creating QuikPiks™, automatic standings calculated using macros), MacDraw (for creating the blank brackets) and a copy machine (anywhere 200-500 copies). Collecting printed brackets and entering them into excel was obviously quite time consuming and in 1998 the beginnings of OfficePool were formed.
The first public release of OfficePool occured in 2001.
We are now in our 12th year of OfficePool and still enjoying every minute.
