Community Information Portal

Community Information

PaarlApp was launched in November 2016 and relaunched November 2017 to reflect a cleaner and more productive design. The app has over 20,000 users (April 2019) of which 98% live and work in the Drakenstein Area (Paarl, Wellington, Saron, Gouda). 

Now we’re expanding to other areas, including Stellenbosch! StelliesApp’s purpose is providing the local community with updated and accurate information regarding their surroundings. We provide the community with News and Events while giving businesses a platform to promote their Businesses and Places through Specials and Loyalty Rewards!


StelliesApp supports local news agencies and only publishes curated news pieces that influence residents’ daily life. Emergency news from local authorities, including electricity, water and other infrastructural influences, take president in this regard. 

We post news via Push Notification and relevant users’ mobile devices receive the notification within 30 seconds after publishing.


Boasting the most comprehensive list of events, StelliesApp is the go-to platform for finding things to do. 

Events feature graphics, HTML writeup, RSVP/Ticketing links and can be linked to an existing Place on the app. Users can even add events directly to their personal calendar from the app.


An extremely powerful feature of StelliesApp is the Special Deals Tab that gets updated daily. Specials can be programmed to run on specific days of the week, once off or even recurring. 

Businesses that require specials to be redeemed via barcode should make use of the barcode feature and places that need their specials shown on the Places Tab can use this for their daily “blackboard” specials.

Bringing new customers to your door has never been this easy!Directory

The Businesses and Places directories are separated to allow for home industries or mobile businesses to make use of the directory more efficiently. 

These extremely interactive directories allow users to quickly find the right category of supplier and then navigate, call or email them from the app, within seconds. 

Listing your business here, we create a mini-website for you on the app with a Header Image, Title, Address, Business Hours, Text info, Links to your website, menu or product list, Map, Call button, etc. The possibilities are endless! Loyalty 

Loyalty Rewards are a great way to keep customers coming back! This impressive and versatile new feature makes StelliesApp the most powerful marketing platform to-date.

Users collect points based on purchases and get access to coupons once they reach the desired level of points. All of this is done on the app and businesses don’t need to expand their Point Of Sale systems.

Museums and public attractions can allocate points for each visit, verified using GPS. This means that the user has to be within 100metres of the Place in order to collect points.



StelliesApp membership allows business owners access to all the abovementioned initiatives while having a StelliesApp agent on call to help grow their business.
