EverCommerce offers a suite of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions across business management, customer engagement, marketing as well as billing and payments.

Timely, founded in 2011, offers appointment booking software for small salons and beauty businesses. It claims to be used by more than 50,000 beauty professionals across 90 countries.

Timely joins the EverCommerce fitness and wellness portfolio that delivers tailored, integrated, and convenient experiences for guests, while providing specialised functionality for business owners. 

The acquisition expands EverCommerce's offerings and reach in the salon and spa industry to the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
