Bookt, a First-In-Class Mobile Software Suite for Models and Agents Launches Just in Time for Fall New York Fashion Week

NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bookt is set to optimize the modeling industry with a new mobile app, which is designed to fill functional gaps in agency operations. The Bookt software integrates with existing charting software and provides a desktop portal to create a single point of contact between models and agents whether on the go, or in the office.

Founded in November 2014 by industry veterans, Bookt has been developing their app for over a year, and it is available just in time for Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week. Bookt puts all of a model's information and conversations in one easy place, allowing talents and agents an easier form of communication. It automatically organizes castings and appointments, manages expenses, provides directions, and even estimates casting wait times. The system notifies agents when talents view castings and arrive at their jobs, and also includes Agency Chat.

"Spending years in the fashion industry I came across inefficiencies that are only now solvable with today's mobile technology," says Ryan Koning, one of Bookt's founders.

Bookt's founders—models Ryan Koning, Ryan Taylor, and Joey Kirchner, and entrepreneur Chris Mirabile—are uniquely suited to enter this field given their previous experiences in the industry. Ryan Koning is a retired US Army Sergeant and an Iraqi War veteran, and is currently enrolled program at Columbia University. Ryan Taylor is a recent graduate of the University of California Los Angeles, and has modeled for Calvin Klein, Prada, and Yves Saint Laurent. Joey Kirchner has modeled for eleven years, working for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, and Givenchy. Chris Mirabile is a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business and a serial Silicon startup entrepreneur.

The team came together when they realized that existing standalone tools were insufficient to meet the growing needs of agents and talents. Agents often struggle to use multiple tools to organize and schedule, while talents can often miss notifications and require scheduling and directional assistance. Bookt is the first system which addresses communication, expensing, and calendars for both agents and talents, making modeling easy.
