Mindbody, Inc., the industry leader in cloud-based, business management software for health and wellness organizations worldwide, has received a major investment from two of the country's most respected venture capital firms, Bessemer Venture Partners and Catalyst Investors.
The mission of MINDBODY Inc., in San Luis Obispo, Calif., is to leverage technology "to improve the health and wellness of the world" says Marketing Director Meg McCall. That's why execs of the software company encourage the organization's 175 employees to stay fit.
Mindbody, a San Luis Opisbo, Calif.-based company that makes business-management software for health-and-fitness businesses, has become an independent sales organization to improve its profit margin and to secure more control over its relationships with merchants, says Rick Stollmeyer, Mindbody founder and CEO.
San Luis Obispo-based Mindbody has spent the past nine years building up a roster of thousands of wellness companies who depend on its web-based software to manage yoga, spa and fitness appointments and run their businesses. It's now turning that client list into an online service that lets customers find and book wellness appointments anytime, anywhere.
"The acquisition of ClientMagic reflects our strategic focus of expanding our web-based software into hair, nail and skin salons," said Rick Stollmeyer, founder and CEO of Mindbody. "ClientMagic shares our values, with a long-time commitment to providing quality software at an affordable price. By combining ClientMagic's salon expertise with our purely web-based platform, we intend to bring salon owners a host of powerful new features that will increase their revenues and cut their costs."
