'Step change' for Scots firm
Appointedd lands biggest ever deal with US network
Online booking specialist Appointedd is to provide digital support to 500,000 customers of one of the world’s largest serviced and virtual office networks.
The deal will see the Edinburgh company power online appointment setting for clients of Alliance Business Centers Network (ABCN) in 700 serviced offices in 52 countries.
It is Appointedd’s largest deal to date, worth up to $15-20 million (£11-15m) in revenue for the two companies over three years.
Appointedd’s disruptive software delivers a comprehensive set of features including online booking, customer relationship management and marketing automation.
ABCN’s chairman and chief executive, Frank Cottle, said: “It was important we could scale any software platform globally.
“It was important to us that we found the right solution for our varied customer base, which ranges from freelancers to multi-national corporations, each using a great variety of software and applications.
“After considerable research, we found that Appointedd is the most rounded online booking platform. Appointedd’s multi-timezone functionality is the only system in the world that would enable our users to book appointments in multiple timezones seamlessly.”
Appointedd’s founder and chief executive Leah Hutcheon, said: “The management team at ABCN have been unrelenting in their search to find the best in class technology platform to run their business on, and we are delighted that Appointedd has been selected.”
Appointedd has attracted investment from a wide range of investors, including Gareth Williams, founder of Skyscanner, and Marie Macklin, founder of Macklin Enterprise Partnerships.
The company has been growing steadily month on month since it launched in 2011, and this deal represents a step change in its potential scale.
