I am thrilled to announce that Brainstorm Force has made a strategic investment in
LatePoint, a modern appointment booking and scheduling plugin designed exclusively for WordPress.
This investment is a great milestone in our journey, as we continue to expand our commitment to unlocking the power of the internet for small businesses.
What Is LatePoint?
Over 21,000 businesses use LatePoint to schedule appointments and bookings from their WordPress websites.
If you have worked with businesses such as salons, therapists, doctors, spas, fitness studios and so on, you know how booking and appointment scheduling software can streamline your workflow and offer a great experience to customers.
Typically, these types of businesses have staff members, offer different services, want to take payments along with booking, and need a powerful admin area for management.
So their needs are different and more demanding from just appointment scheduling and calendar integration softwares like Calendly.
LatePoint is a powerful solution designed specifically for these types of businesses— ones that offer services and require software to efficiently manage schedules, appointments, and bookings.
Here’s how LatePoint can benefit your business:
– Manage staff schedules: LatePoint enables businesses to efficiently manage the schedules of staff members, ensuring optimal allocation of resources and preventing overbooking.
– Diverse service offerings: Businesses offering a range of services can easily configure LatePoint to accommodate various service categories, durations, and pricing structures.
– Payment integration: Seamlessly integrates payment processing, allowing businesses to collect payments at the time of booking with multiple payment gateways.
– Calendar integration: Synchronize with existing calendars, making it effortless to stay up-to-date with appointments and avoid scheduling conflicts.
– Client database: Maintains a comprehensive client database, providing quick access to client histories, preferences, and contact information for personalized service.
– Robust admin dashboard: The powerful administrative area in LatePoint offers extensive management capabilities, from appointment tracking to staff performance analysis.
– Customizable booking forms: Tailor booking forms to gather specific information from clients, ensuring that appointments are booked with all necessary details.
– Reporting and analytics: Access insightful reports and analytics to track business performance, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions.
– Multi-location support: For businesses with multiple locations, LatePoint offers support for managing bookings and appointments across different branches.
Why LatePoint? Background Story
There are typically three distinct categories in commerce:
– Physical commerce
– Digital commerce
– Service commerce
Physical commerce involves the sale of tangible goods like apparel, electronics, and furniture.Digital commerce revolves around digital products and services such as ebooks, music, and software downloads.Our earlier investment in
SureCart, a modern alternative to WooCommerce, has made it easier for businesses to thrive in both the physical and digital commerce spaces.
However, we realized that the service commerce space within WordPress was somewhat underserved.
Platforms like Squarespace offer Acuity Scheduling and Wix provides Wix Bookings.SaaS solutions like Calendly often come with very limited features and substantially high monthly recurring costs.
Within the WordPress ecosystem, there are a few options, such as WooCommerce Bookings, Amelia, Bookly, etc.
We meticulously evaluated all of them.
From these thorough evaluations, one product stood out prominently: LatePoint.
What impressed us most about LatePoint was its exceptional code quality, modern design flexibility, and robustness.
So we started chatting with their team.
Tamik, the founder and lead developer of LatePoint, is a unique talent.He has an art school background and years of experience in building solutions for large enterprises based on Ruby on Rails.
He has a rare combination of design and coding skills, which was clearly evident as LatePoint has both — modern design and high-quality code.
And most importantly, we noticed Tamik has built LatePoint very thoughtfully.Every feature, design decision and piece of code is written with his passion for the product.
Our discussions extended over several months and our teams had the opportunity to meet at WordCamp US a couple of months ago.
We felt great synergies between our companies since we share a mission to build amazing solutions for small businesses.
Ultimately we decided to join forces.
