Leading Spa Management Solution Available in Six Languages - English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese
New York, NY – September 1, 2009 SpaBooker, the leading spa/wellness online booking company, today announced that its breakthrough online booking and spa/salon management software solution is now available in six languages – giving consumers worldwide the ability to schedule appointments 24 hours a day/7 days a week. As a result of SpaBooker’s international expansion, spas, salons and wellness centers across the globe are able to offer clients the ability to book appointments and services in their language of choice, as well as in multiple currencies.
While SpaBooker has been available in more than 22 countries, the new language options will significantly expand the company’s reach, including exploding markets in Asia, Latin America and Europe. SpaBooker businesses can customize the industry’s most comprehensive spa management system to display in Chinese (simplified Mandarin), French, German, Spanish, Portuguese or English.
“The spa industry is a powerfully global industry, and our goal is to help spas around the world grow their customer base and better manage their businesses by providing the most innovative marketing solutions available today,” said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Managing Director of SpaBooker. “SpaBooker is a truly global technology, and our expanded language and currency options make it a seamless fit with our partners.”
SpaBooker’s technology takes online appointment booking deeper than restaurant reservation systems like ‘OpenTable'. Consumers can not only book times, they can also research treatments, services and pricing – and then schedule an appointment for the exact treatment/service, reserving it securely with a credit card or gift certificate. Consumers can easily access SpaBooker at the spa/salon’s own website, at SpaFinder.com (where they can search for spas worldwide) and at leading travel and lifestyle websites partnering with SpaFinder, such as Allure.com. A web-based system, SpaBooker can be accessed by Internet consumers and authorized business personnel 24/7 – from any computer that has an Internet connection.
