The founders Iranthi Gomes and Jarkko Oksanen built a booking solution for their previous business, and then realized it would help others as well. The founders used their own money to create a prototype and found their first customers in early 2018.
Serviceform is already in use by service businesses around the world, mainly in the UK, USA and Australia, and is available in four different languages. Customers also use the software as a booking solution and scheduling software.
The long term goal of Serviceform is to create a solution that changes how small businesses communicate with their customers.
