SpaBooker Tapped To Power Allure’s New Spa Booking Site
New York, NY (June 11, 2009) − SpaBooker, a division of SpaFinder Inc., today announced that its innovative technology platform is powering the new online spa- booking channel at Allure.com. Launched June 5, 2009, this powerful new eCommerce partnership allows Allure.com’s millions of users to search and book treatments in real time, 24/7 – while providing SpaBooker partners with significantly increased visibility and a robust new stream of customers.
Allure, the first publication devoted to beauty (and with a strong editorial focus on the spa world), attracts millions of beauty, wellness and spa enthusiasts every month. The SpaBooker platform is housed in the ‘Concierge’ section at Allure.com’s popular Virtual Store, a one-stop beauty-shopping destination. Allure.com users are now able, with a few clicks of a mouse, to search and book spa and beauty treatments ‘live,’ at any time of day or night, exclusively through SpaBooker’s network of partners. Over one thousand spas and salons are already under contract with SpaBooker’s breakthrough business management and online booking solution.
SpaBooker functions like the ‘OpenTable’ of spas and salons: consumers can not only book times, they can research menus and pricing and select specific treatments – from a Thai massage – to a salt scrub – to an oxygen facial. Users simply pick a location, view service availability for their chosen day and time, drill down to the exact treatment they want, and reserve securely with their credit card or SpaFinder gift certificate – and their booking is confirmed instantly.
“Bringing the flexibility and convenience of SpaBooker’s online booking tool to Allure’s audience is a perfect fit, as Allure.com represents one of the heaviest-trafficked destinations for the passionate, motivated spa, beauty and wellness shopper.” said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Managing Director of SpaBooker. “This alliance is a crucial step in our ongoing goal of opening the doors of our spa and salon partners to the entire wellness community. Not to mention driving significant new business to our partners from leading spa, beauty, health and travel sites around the web.”
