Company Overview: 

Checkfront was created in response to frustration with the tools available to businesses looking to manage bookings both off and online. From a consumer and business operator perspective, the solutions were antiquated, segregated and expensive.

In late 2008, Jason Morehouse and Grant Jurgeneit set out to fill the gap in online booking software and started work on Checkfront. Version 1.0 launched in June, 2010 following an overwhelmingly positive response to the beta. Checkfront quickly became a leading provider of cloud-based booking services and now processes over $100 million USD in bookings each year.

Operating in 74 countries, our customers cover a wide range of service-based businesses within the tourism, hospitality, event and rental industries. Many of our customers reach out to us to replace legacy technology or to scale an existing business.

Checkfront utilizes the best of cloud-based technologies to offer a state-of-the-art, powerful and flexible application. Our secure back-office management application allows you to manage your business anywhere and our self-service booking system integrates seamlessly into any website.
