Living in the internet age

Wahanda, the UK’s leading health and beauty marketplace, has embraced the immense potential of the internet to reshape the industry. Its newest development is 'Wahanda Connect', an online booking system connecting businesses with its 18 million annual customers, who are actively looking for health and beauty services. 

CEO Lopo Champalimaud said: “We’re proud to have created a mechanic that is as simple as it is effective. We provide our suppliers with the software they need to secure bookings 24/7, and through Wahanda they can simultaneously find new customers, adopt a flexible approach to their pricing structure (helping to grow occupancy at historically quieter times) and book them in with the real-time functionality. The end result is increased manageability and, crucially, profitability.”

The revolutionary platform provides the consumer with the ability to book their health and beauty needs discreetly, quickly and at a time to suit them – much like they do with every other aspect of their life.  

This is just the beginning, but it’s an exciting time for our sector. Champalimaud also added: “We believe that long-term, there is more the internet can offer businesses – it’s simply a question of timing and technology!”
