Black-Owned Readyhubb Launches Free Appointment Booking Platform

Black-owned tech startup, Readyhubb, has launched a new website booking service to empower appointment-based professionals across the U.S.

Readyhubb, founded in 2022 by Chidi Ashley, is a booking platform that caters to many industries. The app streamlines all aspects of the booking process by designing a system that minimizes the number of daily tools professionals need to manage.

Businesses that have a presence on social media and may not have a proper booking and client management system will benefit hugely from this platform. Not only does it provide an easily accessible booking service, but it also provides founders with calendar management and scheduling tool which help them manage their time correctly.

The platform, which makes booking an appointment much more straightforward, has also introduced a chat feature so professionals and clients can easily communicate with each other in the app. In addition, by prioritizing efficiency and eliminating endless text messages and phone calls, professionals can keep all communication under one roof.

“The introduction of Readyhubb to informal service providers will not only empower the small businesses themselves but also streamline the ability for those looking to book appointments – search and discover top-rated professionals, read real reviews, make secure payments, and secure appointments with confidence,” said CEO and founder, Chidi Ashley.

“We are excited to give companies a voice and empower those across all industries.” 

The platform is free for customers and professionals but will move towards a subscription-based service for professionals as of January 2023.

It will also continue to prioritize independent stylists, small businesses, and freelancers who balance full-time schedules, manage appointments and feel pressured to build more clientele. Readyhubb will aid them with the tools needed to simplify their overall booking experience.
