Meet Checkfront

We are a diverse group of industry professionals with backgrounds in technology, travel, and tourism.

How’d We Get Here?

OUr story

Checkfront was initially conceived by co-founders Jason Morehouse and Grant Jurgeneit to help frustrated service operators better manage their bookings online.

While large companies had (arguably antiquated) systems for centralizing reservations and taking payments, many tourism and rental companies were still struggling to manage bookings with e-mail forms, spreadsheets, and clunky software – hardly an ideal solution for a business owner looking to create a seamless and professional online experience.

Our Mission

Why we do what we do

We still wake up as eager as we did on day one to have the best online booking system available. We want to take the work out of managing the complexities and administration of service-based bookings, and allow owners to focus on their customers and what they love.

We scrutinize every aspect of our service. Our software must be easy to use, beautifully designed, secure, perform flawlessly, and be priced fairly (commission free).

 Locally Grown

Since launching in June, 2010, Checkfront has grown from a humble operation in Victoria, BC, Canada, into a dedicated workforce spread across BC and Canada. Our product team in based in the beautiful capital city of Victoria.

 Globally Known

We’ve processed over 1 billion USD in bookings annually, made by businesses in 112 countries around the world. From Alaska to New Zealand we facilitate hundreds of thousands of bookings monthly.
