Appointedd was born when founder Leah Hutcheon saw a gap in the market during her time as a busy magazine editor. Growing used to doing everything online, it struck her that the only thing she couldn’t seem to do was book her hairdresser appointments. That was when the idea came about for a tool that would give small service businesses a simple way to get online and gain a competitive edge.
Since that initial spark, Appointedd has evolved into a market-leading and award-winning supplier of online booking and scheduling solutions for businesses of all shapes and sizes, allowing them to take bookings seamlessly from any platform, on any device, in any timezone.
Appointedd now delivers online scheduling for a diverse mix of companies across the globe, from solopreneurs running car valeting companies and photography studios, to a UK PLC and a Silicon Valley security firm that supplies 50% of the Fortune 500.
Driven by a team of smart innovators, Appointedd is focused on enabling our customers to grow their businesses and gain a competitive edge. We share our expertise and knowledge so that our clients can give the best possible experience to their customers. We encourage every member of our team to behave in an entrepreneurial, disruptive way, always looking to find better ways of doing things.
Our philosophy is that time is the most precious commodity your business has, and we want to help you make the most of it.
