How’d We Get Here?

After a string of difficult experiences trying to book activities during family holidays, Checkfront was 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 smaller tourism and rental companies were still struggling to manage bookings with e-mail forms, phone calls, spreadsheets and clunky software.

With the goal in mind of creating an ideal solution that can change a business overnight, Checkfront was built to be easy to use, require little training, and scale with a business. We’re fanatical about delivering the best possible user experience for owner/operators, staff and customers.

Our Mission

Checkfront was founded with the mission of simplifying the often complicated processes that accommodations, tour, activity, adventure, and rental companies use to manage their business. We wholeheartedly believe that business owners in the tourism industry fiercely love what they do, and we want to make running a business easier, to allow owners to focus on why they started the business in the first place – doing what they love.

We still wake up as eager as we did on day one to have the best online booking system available. We scrutinize every aspect of our service. Checkfront must be easy to use, beautifully designed, secure, perform flawlessly, and be priced fairly (commission free).
