News

Just two years after its inception, Planity has raised an additional €6 million from its historic investor, Alven, Fonds Ambition Numérique (Bpifrance), and Alto Invest.

In recent years online scheduling has become essential in the health sector, and it is now developing rapidly the world of beauty: Planity is a digital platform that’s available 24/7, allowing users to quickly and easily schedule appointments online.

 

With its unique concept, Planity has attracted the attention of both beauty professionals and consumers. In just a few clicks, users can schedule appointments with the hairdresser, spa, manicurist, or barber of their choice, from among roughly 1,500 partners.

 

Antoine Puymirat, founder of Planity, stated “Planity is the only player to offer the best of both worlds: a management software for productivity and a portal for online booking that boosts new customer acquisition. The volume of appointments booked through our platform confirms that consumers want to be able to find and compare salons easily and make an appointment in the blink of an eye, they don’t want to consult dozens of different websites or have to call around.”
