San Francisco-based general appointment booking service MyTime raised $9.25 million in a round led by existing investor, Upfront Ventures, with participation from new investors Khosla Ventures, Daher Capital, Accelerator Ventures, and Westfield Corporation. While MyTime is not helping patients book appointments with primary care physicians, it helps users book appointments for a number of health-related services.
This latest round brings the company's total funding to at least $11.75 million.
MyTime, available for iOS and Android devices as well as online, allows consumers to book appointments with vendors in the automotive industry, health and beauty, home and garden, medical and dental, sports and fitness, lessons, and pets. Under the medical and dental category, users can book appointments for a dental exam and cleaning, teeth whitening, acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, eye exam, and physical therapy.
“America’s small businesses are falling massively behind when it comes to finding, booking and paying for services online, even more so when it comes to mobile,” MyTime CEO Ethan Anderson said in a statement. “This new funding allows us to expand our focus from being the most popular consumer destination for finding and booking appointments online to providing our merchants with the tools they need to enable online booking and communication with their clients 24/7.”
The new app, called MyTime Scheduler, is not consumer-facing but rather btob. The feature helps MyTime's partners manage the appointments booked through the app, communicate with clients through MyTime Communicator, view a client's appointment history, set custom appointments for clients, and send clients push notifications.
