As 2019 draws to an end, Edinburgh startup Appointedd is celebrating an exciting 12-months in which the firm has doubled in size and confirmed a series of new appointments.
Founded in 2011 by Leah Hutcheon, the software startup helps businesses to handle bookings more flexibly and works with a number of high-profile brands such as Westfield London, Mamas and Papas and one of the Big Four accountancy firms.
Since its launch, the company has raised £1.4 million in funding and has opened its office in the heart of Edinburgh’s tech quarter.
Looking to the year ahead, Appointed aims for significant growth; hoping to build on recent successes and ramp-up efforts to keep pace with an “ever-growing” client base.
Appointedd CEO and founder, Leah Hutcheon, said the company is relishing the task ahead, insisting “We’re just getting started”.
“Appointedd has already grown substantially over the course of 2019, and we expect that to continue next year. We’ve been exploring plans for expansion, and bringing Appointedd to new audiences,” she said.
“We’ve brought new team members onboard to help us take that journey, and we’re excited for what lies ahead in 2020 as we pursue our next round of investment and some potentially huge business clients,” Hutcheon added.
Moving forward, it will increase its capacity to serve clients and will embark on another recruitment drive. Already, the firm has allocated resources into boosting business development, welcoming Cory Smith as business development manager, Rebecca Morris as business development executive and account manager Domonique Shelton.
Additions in a host of other areas, including the development team, marketing and customers solutions, have bolstered the company this year.
