My Cleaning Business Software
BookingKoala was initially created for my cleaning company with absolutely zero intentions of letting anyone else use it. My partner and I at the time had only one goal, and that was to grow King of Maids as fast as we could. During this time, we needed a cleaning software to help us do several things efficiently and effectively, but there was nothing out there that could help us do that.
Our company was growing very quickly for a company that wasn't backed by investors. We did 0 to around just over 900k in our first full year in business, then went from 900k to about 2.1 million the following year. The growth was great, but our company was a mess.
At that time, I was in contact with the founder of Launch27, and many don't know this, but we almost settled for it to be the software powering our cleaning business. I always give credit where it's due, and Launch27, at that time, was the best software in the market plus, the founder was a good guy that I've had a few conversations with when we were both growing our cleaning services.
Why didn't we go with them, and instead, we built out BookingKoala?
It didn't solve the problems we needed solved, so we decided to build our own software. Today BookingKoala is home to thousands of users, and it's been a business that I am very passionate about. I love helping new entrepreneurs start their cleaning businesses, and I love working on improving our platform.
