It’s never been a better time to be a Partywirker!
If there is any merit to the old adage “success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration”, Larry McLean nailed them both. He’d put in the long hours and 20 years of software sales with IBM, Sequent Computer Systems, Intersolv and Broadvision, but Larry had a strong sense of the trend in customer self-directed booking and buying software for companies that planned and coordinated multiple parties, events, menus and venues. He was inspired by the meteoric growth of the internet and knew that it could be done easier, quicker and more profitable online.
With support from friends and family and modest investor funding Larry started Partywirks out of his home and the business has been self-funded ever since. The idea was to create a software product that solves multiple challenges for business owners, managers, staff…and their customers.
Over the years, Partywirks has grown its online reservation and party management software into the “go to” solution for organizations that specialize in multiple venues, menus and services such as bowling, roller skating, ice skating and pizza centers to water-parks, laser tag and craft studios.
Recently, Partywirks passed four major development milestones by 1) releasing an all new version of Partywirks software designed for today’s on-the-go mobile customer; 2) opening a sales & support center in México to service the rapidly expanding Latin American eCommerce market; 3) completed integration with strategic partner FetchRev and 4) promoted General Manager Fernando Rivadeneyra to Vice President Operations.
So as we like to say at Partywirks, let’s get this party started!
