The Party Center Software Story

Curious about our story? Here's a timeline of our growth throughout the years:

  • 1998 - Our CEO, Scott, started a marketing company called Agile Software & Marketing with the goal of helping local businesses improve their marketing efforts.
  • 2005 - Scott purchased Bounceopolis, an indoor play zone in El Dorado Hills, California to give his community (and kids) a fun place to play and have birthday parties.  
  • 2006 - After experiencing the struggles of managing staff, vendors, and customers, Scott decided to create Party Center Software to automate key aspects of his business.
  • 2007 - After developing and using the software at Bounceopolis, he identified a demand at other indoor play centers and FECs and launched the software commercially.
  • 2016 - Party Center Software increased the development team by over 500% to help keep the software moving forward.
