Since its inception in 2001, Mindbody has consistently broken new ground by offering its clients the latest online tools to help them succeed. The company’s latest device, a social media player called the Mindbody YogaScene, goes beyond traditional online tools by providing free content to yoga fans via their social networks.
SpaFinder, Inc., the largest global spa resource, and Mindbody, the largest online software provider in the health and wellness industry, today announced the 12,000-plus wellness facilities using Mindbody’s business management software would be featured on SpaFinder.com, resulting in the largest spa-wellness portal in the world. The relationship between Mindbody and SpaFinder, which is exclusive for spa/wellness portals, adds to the 5,500-plus spas and wellness properties already under contract with SpaFinder.
SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - Launched in 2001 amid garden tools and old bicycles in the garage of its founder and CEO, Rick Stollmeyer, Mindbody’s humble beginnings could not have foretold the success the company would eventually experience. Today, with offices in San Luis Obispo, CA, New York and the United Kingdom, Mindbody, which provides web based business management software for fitness, spa, dance and related personal services businesses, has recently surpassed the 10,000 client benchmark.
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.
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."
