We still wake up as eager as we did on day one to have the best online booking system available. We want to take the work out of managing the complexities and administration of service-based bookings, and allow owners to focus on their customers and what they love.
We scrutinize every aspect of our service. Our software must be easy to use, beautifully designed, secure, perform flawlessly, and be priced fairly (commission free).

Market Day

Adam Beech has been an app developer for five years and started working in the mobile industry just a couple years after graduating the CST programme at Camosun. In that time, Adam has taken a much greater interest in what problems can be solved through mobile that have previously been unsolved by traditional web solutions. The app is modelled on the idea that all relevant information on a particular activity (in this case, farmer's markets) can be more accessible by concentrating it on a mobile platform. While this model isn't totally new, it's also not highly developed either. This project is an experiment to see if this model of app can be self-sustaining and beneficial to the average user.
