Crewbooking was born from the desire of Laurent Hirtz, founder of Crewbooking, to reconcile family and professional life.
As a young dad and Video Project Manager at the time, multiple calls from clients seeking to know his availability led him to create the first version of what would become Crewbooking: "See if I'm available before calling me!"
Shared with his colleagues, it will quickly be used by more than 500 Crews.
In 2017, the Crewbooking project takes shape, a company is created. Manu Piton, Crewbooking's CTO, joins the project.
