Glenn founded BookingBug with the not-so-simple objective of building a platform through which time could be treated as if it were a stock innovatory item. BookingBug is on it's way to achieving that goal, and although it started with small business clients, it quickly grew to supplying technology to global retails brands.

There's still a long way to go before they start to really achieve their goal, but on the way they've found themselves a recognized source of knowledge and expertise on booking and appointment systems for retail and enterprise as well as SME's.
