Zapla was founded in 2014 because of the frustrating experience when trying to book services online. Most booking systems aren’t designed for a good mobile user experience, and many even require user registration, and who wants to register an account for a service you’re perhaps only going to use once?
We thought this could be done better, so we set out to create a simple and easy-to-use booking system. Having a background in web agency work, we knew it had to be really simple to set up as well. What we came up with was a complete booking widget which could be installed with one line of code on any website. The booking widget would automatically adapt to the existing website design, making it feel like an integrated part of the website.
It’s our ambition to make a great looking, easy-to-use booking system available to anyone, anywhere.
