NEW YORK, NY (October 25, 2007) − SpaFinder, Inc., the leading spa marketing company, today announced the launch of its new SpaBooker system, the only spa management solution that brings spas new customers and provides easy-to-use tools to efficiently manage their businesses. SpaBooker’s online booking feature is the first spa management solution that can connect customers from across the Internet directly to the spa’s available appointment times, giving spas the ability to generate and book new customers including the millions of spa-goers who search for spas at SpaFinder.com.

“It’s the only system that brings new business into the spa directly through the world’s top spa consumer websites,” said SpaFinder, Inc. CEO Pete Ellis. “It provides our spa partners with powerful new marketing opportunities across the web, a steady stream of new customers, more revenues, more efficient management and a huge competitive advantage. SpaFinder has been a leader in the spa industry for over twenty years, and we are leveraging our expertise to deliver the most powerful and easiest to use spa management solution in the industry.”

To round out the solution, SpaBooker is equipped with a complete point-of-sale (POS) system. The POS system has fully integrated credit card processing, cash handling and inventory management built in. In addition, the credit card processing feature comes with some of the lowest merchant rates in the industry. The robust reporting options offered by SpaBooker also allow spas to instantly export financial information to QuickBooks. Ellis noted that SpaBooker is truly a comprehensive solution that puts all the tools a spa needs a simple mouse-click away.
