One Million!

Dear Perkville residents,

There’s a million of you!

That’s right, we’re absolutely ecstatic to announce that yesterday, August 19th, 2014 we surpassed one million registered users. That’s a million people earning and redeeming points. A million people referring friends. One million engaged customers.

How engaged?

Try 150,000 posts to the Facebook pages and Twitter feeds of our small-business partners. Try more than 56 million points-earning transactions, triggering more than 46 million emails showing users the cool rewards they’ve earned. Try more than fifty thousand successful new customer referrals this year alone!

And the biggest news of all is that these million users come from all kinds of businesses. That’s gyms and Pilates studios, yoga studios and spas, salons and retail stores and restaurants. In more than 25 countries. On 6 continents (and we swear we’ll get Antarctica soon).

Since our founding in January, 2010 we’ve grown by leaps and bounds. Our team is bigger, our reach is bigger, and in addition to single-sites we’re now helping some huge multi-store chains. And of course our population has grown exponentially. But through it all we’ve kept our kinship with the little guys. We set out to make an affordable SaaS solution that actually did something for small businesses like us: That helped them get new customers and keep the ones they had engaged and happy.

Now we’ve got one million proofs that it’s working.

But we’re not resting on our laurels. We’ve got a whole new set of features and new integrations due out in the coming months. We never want to stop getting better, and we want our customers to be as engaged with us as their customers are with them. So tell us how you’re using Perkville, how it helps you, and what we could be doing better. Drop us a line at feedback@perkville.com.

Here’s to many more milestones to come (two-million, anyone?).

Cheers,

The Perkville team
