Checkfront in Q2 2017: A new growth record, three new partners and the launch of Site Builder

by Taylor Odgers

This quarter has been one for the record books here at Checkfront. We reached a new customer growth milestone and added three new partner integration— all while launching a brand new product, Site Builder.

This success would not be possible without the hard work of each Checkmate (Checkfront employee) and the loyalty of our customers. We’d like to thank each one of you sincerely. You rock!

Here’s a closer look at what our team has been up to:

 

500+ new monthly customers

With the addition of over 500 new monthly customers, Checkfront has reached a new growth milestone. We continue to see steady adoption of our Soho, Pro, and Plus plans. Enterprise saw the largest quarter to date, building on global success with the addition of Enterprise customers in North America, Southeast Asia, and the UK.

As a result, total booking volume tipped past $2.7 billion USD with bookings being processed in 110 countries and 28 currencies.

 

3 new powerful partner integrations

 

This quarter our partner’s team made big strides securing three new partner integrations, each improving the functionality for our Booking Manager.

1 revolutionary way to build a booking website

 

Perhaps our biggest and most exciting achievement this quarter was the launch of our long awaited Site Builder.

Over the last seven years, we’ve come across a lot of travel websites and noticed some common gaps. Without a professional looking website our customers were leaving money on the table. We knew there needed to be an easier way for operators to build and update their websites— and thus Site Builder was born.  

So far Site Builder has four beautiful themes to choose from. Each has been curated with industry leading best practices for a seamless booking experience on any device.

By deeply integrating their website with their Booking Manager, customers benefit from an improved user experience, better SEO, and easy updates. The result is a sleek and simple website that converts. The best part is that customers can have their new site up in as little as 2 hours without having to touch a line of code.  

We’re all excited about this strong quarter and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store. Stay tuned, we’re not slowing down anytime soon.
