BOZEMAN, MT--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Schedulicity (http://schedulicity.com), the leader in online scheduling for appointment-dependent small businesses, today announced that the company has surpassed $1 billion in appointment-based commerce. This growth has been accelerated by Schedulicity's recent expansion into 50+ verticals, up from 35+ just a year ago. New verticals include golf instructors, college advisors and swimming instructors, among others.
"The momentum we've experienced over the past year with SMB adoption of our services demonstrates that we have been successful in answering the needs of service-based businesses," said Schedulicity CEO Jerry Nettuno. "Since Schedulicity's launch in 2009, our team has worked tirelessly to create a robust and feature-rich online application that helps small businesses succeed. We're constantly evolving Schedulicity's features in order to best meet the needs of our users, and plan to unveil a significant new service in the upcoming months to meet growing demand."
Schedulicity's recent milestones are indicative of the company's success in positioning businesses at the center of evolving trends in social media, mobile, online ads and promotions. A pioneer in integrating the appointment process with Facebook, Schedulicity enables SMBs to become socially connected, thus fundamentally changing the way they manage their business.
"Managing calendars and direct communications with clients are tedious activities that distract from the services that small businesses are offering," said Nettuno. "Our goal has always been to provide service-based businesses across North America with the digital tools to operate more efficiently and focus on building their business."
In addition to the $1 billion milestone and expansion into 50+ verticals, Schedulicity has also amassed more than 75,000 fans on its Facebook page.
