Libersy Raises Funding For Distributed Booking Service

Libersy, an Amsterdam-based startup that helps small businesses handle bookings and payments online, has raised a new round of investment from HenQ Invest and a group of existing investors. The funding amount was not disclosed. Libersy had previously raised €1.6 million in funding. You can find our coverage of Libersy here and here.

Libersy’s web-based bookings technology allows small businesses to operate online booking and appointments instead of just over the phone. The startup’s ‘Click-to-Book’ technology, which can be customized to match any brand, allows customers to click on the ‘book now’ button on a business’ existing website or on a yellow pages business directory. In turn, Libersy takes a small cut of every transaction and booking.

Founded in 2006 by entrepreneur Karin Loeffen, Libersy’s booking platform is being used by over 18,000 businesses. The startup faces competition from Rearden Commerce, Genbook and others.
