There are a number of key milestones in a startup's life and getting the first paying customer is a significant one. It demonstrates that someone in the world is willing to handover hard cash for the thing you have created. A surprising number of startups never make it this far.
So we are super happy to announce that Hellin Lastenhoito has become our first paying customer after successful autumn trials. Hellin Lastenhoito provides childcare services in Helsinki parks and in 2017 will also be providing indoor options.
Pings is useful for them as the customers can easily book places, and Hellin can send out more spontaneous options, e.g. when doing their weekend pop up events.
We very much look forward to working with Hellin Lastenhoito to further improve our offering, as although it already has sufficient value there is still much work to be done.
Look out for a major overhaul of the Pings creation and editing options coming before Christmas.
