Introducing the Timely Team

We’re experts in making life easier for small business owners – helping their businesses to flourish and grow.

The Story

10 years’ experience in building software

Prior to Timely, co-founders Ryan and Andrew built BookIt — a booking engine for the New Zealand tourism industry. In 2010, BookIt was acquired by Fairfax and became the software behind the travel division of Trade Me, New Zealand‘s largest ecommerce site.

During this time we were asked by a lot of small business owners if we could provide a similar solution for other industries like clinics, salons, gyms, trades and so on. There was clearly a lot of pain being experienced, with existing solutions being cumbersome and expensive.

So, we built Timely — simple, affordable and reliable appointment software for small businesses. As Timely has grown, we've focused our offering to help established and growing salons and spas, specifically.

The Mantlepiece

Awards? We win ’em…

While our Number 1 obsession is making great software to help our customers, it doesn't hurt to have something shiny to put on the mantlepiece. We've been humbled by the recognition we have received from the local tech and business communities.
