Booker also enables service business to sell their services online, through their website and a network of partner sites and apps, creating a seamless online booking experience for consumers.

We started as a division of SpaFinder (located in Gramercy, NYC) in 2007 with a SaaS product called SpaBooker. Our focus was to deliver one platform for spas to manage their business, and SpaBooker was an instant success. We quickly expanded the team, feature set, and customer base. Building on our success, we decided to spin out SpaBooker in October 2010 to bring even more focus on growing the business by entering new verticals, and helping publishers add booking to their online user experience.
We realized this vision stretched beyond the name SpaBooker, leading us to spin out as GramercyOne, with SpaBooker as its flagship product. Shortly thereafter, we brought on new investors in our Series A financing of $15M, enabling us to build out our executive team, enter several new verticals, and sign new partnerships with major enterprise clients. Over the following year, as we continued our breakout growth, we recognized that our name was creating an unneeded divide between our company and our products. We decided to bring it all together with a simple name born from our core offering ? Booker.
In April 2013, the company announced a $27.5M Series B funding, bringing its total funding to just under $50M. Booker?s investors now include Bain Capital Ventures, Grotech Ventures, Jubilee Investments, Revolution, and TDF. The business is on target to deliver $17M in 2013 revenue, and will process nearly $2B in transactions on its platform this year. The company now has over 200 employees ? mostly located in our downtown offices, and the culture is one of hard work, fun and community, which is reflected in our strong business performance and high retention of top talent.
