Thailand-based GoWabi lets spa and beauty salons get customer bookings and offer discounted prices during off-peak hours, while keeping regular prices non-peak.
How it compares to competitors: It’s mainly a booking platform and offers discounts only during quiet hours to help salons manage their capacity.
Since its 2016 launch, GoWabi has expanded its footprint to nine major cities in Thailand and is now working with more than 300 beauty and wellness salons and boutiques, including Yves Rocher, Let’s Relax, and Strip. It claims to have “thousands of bookings” growing at a monthly rate of over 20 percent.
