Vancouver BC, September 18, 2013
Checkfront, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based booking services, announced today that the platform has reached a significant milestone, processing over $100 million (USD) in online bookings since it launched three years ago.
Checkfront is a cloud-based booking system that tour, activity & rental businesses use to manage bookings, centralize administration and sell their services online. Checkfront’s turn-key system snaps into a business’ existing website by integrating with popular web platforms like WordPress, Joomla and Facebook, and includes a built-in payment processing platform that integrates with a wide variety of payment gateways, including PayPal, Authorize.Net and Stripe. Businesses can manage real-time bookings and inventory using Checkfront’s secure back-office business management application or the Checkfront mobile booking apps for iOS and Android.
“This is an exciting milestone for us,” says Jason Morehouse, Checkfront’s co-founder and CTO. “The last twelve months in particular have been consistent record months for us both in merchant volume and new clients. We are seeing more high volume businesses choose us over commission-based providers, and emerging businesses choose us for our ease of use and small business support.
“Checkfront has grown 100% year over year. We expect continued and accelerated growth as more businesses consider cloud-based tour operator software to replace legacy systems and take advantage of mobile bookings.”
With customers in 70 countries, Checkfront supports 29 currencies and 14 languages. Checkfront’s fully-managed system includes automated updates and backups. It delivers maximum reliability by operating on a distributed network with data centers in five geographically diverse locations including the United States, United Kingdom and Asia. Their customers cover a wide range of service-based businesses within the tourism, hospitality and rental industries.
