LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boulevard (www.joinblvd.com), provider of the client experience platform purpose-built for appointment-based, self-care businesses, today announced it has been named to the 2023 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™. Now in its 29th year, the renowned list ranks the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. Making its second-consecutive appearance on the list, Boulevard ranked 65th overall with a growth rate of more than 2,300% during that period.
“Appearing on such an esteemed listing in consecutive years speaks not just to the strength of our people, technology, and vision, but to the resiliency of the entire self-care industry,” said Matt Danna, co-founder and CEO, Boulevard. “Hair, nails, and wrinkles grow regardless of the macroeconomic environment and these incredible businesses are always there, ready to help us look and feel our best. Boulevard is determined to support and grow the self-care industry and advocate for this community of entrepreneurs and professionals that has for too long been overlooked and underestimated.”
With self-care playing an increasingly central role in Americans’ daily lives, the global wellness market reached $5.6 trillion in 2022, with the personal care and beauty market alone accounting for more than $1 trillion1. It is also one of the biggest drivers of career opportunities for creative professionals. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the personal care services industry will grow almost five times faster than the average for the total economy through 2030.
After posting its fourth consecutive year of triple-digit revenue growth in 2022, Boulevard has maintained its strong growth trajectory in 2023. The company is now trusted by more than 30,000 self-care professionals in more than 3,000 locations across all 50 U.S. states, and the Boulevard platform is now used to book more than 1 million appointments every month and process more than $1.5 billion in payments each year.
Boulevard also continues to innovate and deliver critical new capabilities to bolster the first and only client experience platform specifically designed to meet the unique needs of different verticals across the self-care industry. Already renowned for helping salons and spas design memorable client experiences and improve client retention by streamlining everything from online booking and business management to email marketing and payment processing, Boulevard has rapidly emerged as the medical spa software of choice for the fast-growing medspa industry.
Boulevard recently announced the availability of advanced charting, a powerful new capability that enables medspas to add detailed visuals to treatment notes and other forms of client documentation. With the addition of advanced charting, Boulevard’s medspa software offers everything customers need to deliver a client experience that is equal parts seamless, comprehensive, and compliant. According to the findings of a new customer impact study, medspas that switched to Boulevard grew revenue by 30% on average in the first year alone.
