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 consumers find and book wellness appointments anytime, anywhere. Once it’s fully rolled out later this summer, the Mindbody Finder should be the biggest real-time list of massage, yoga and other sessions in the country. No more wondering whether you can squeeze in a massage on your lunch break, whether you’re in New York, San Francisco or in between.
It’s possible because nearly 9,000 spas and studios use Mindbody’s online software to run their businesses, doing everything from booking appointments to processing payments. Those businesses can opt in to be listed on Mindbody’s Finder site.
