Gamitee is a start-up which helps travel websites become seamless booking platforms. We recognized that the majority of purchases are collective decisions. However, online booking sites do not provide groups with the basic tools they require to make a decision. We set out on a quest to change the way that online travel booking operates and present our solution to the sites and their users.
With just five minutes of deployment, We include your website as a platform for collaborative browsing, allowing your visitors to consult online with their families and friends before booking.
When users visit the site, they can hit a button, create a wishlist, invite friends to vote, chat and even vote about their choices and then proceed to buy.
Allowing couples and groups to access the site together allows them to make a faster and better decision that everyone is happy with. Your users will have a fantastic experience and give your site better results.

Gamitee transforms into Joyned when it receives $4 million for its social shopping platform.
Joyned, formerly called Gamitee, announced on Wednesday that it had raised $4 million in seed capital to develop its e-commerce platform, putting retailers in the driver’s seat of social interaction.
The CEO, Jonathan Abraham, explained that Gamitee is “joined” to translate into Hebrew, and this Jerusalem-based SaaS company decided to call it “joy” since it wants to “spark happiness in the experiences of its customers.”
The main figure in the group The top three players are Arthur Stark, former president of Bed Bath & Beyond, Yair Goldfinger, who founded Dotomi and ICQ, as well as Rafael Ashkenazi, managing director and executive chairman of Hard Rock Digital.
Who Is The Icon In The U.S. Market
“Arthur is an icon in the retail industry and is helping us tremendously with his work in the U.S. market,” Abraham declared. “Yari became the first to create an app for messaging, and now with Rafael, we’ll be able to penetrate the U.S. market and build our brand.”
Instead of helping e-commerce businesses improve their marketing on social networks, Joyned enables retailers to provide a collaborative shopping experience on their sites without relying on social media platforms, Abraham explained. Customers can now browse a retailer’s website and invite friends to browse the items with the touch of an icon.
Idea Of The Company
Incredibly, Abraham had the idea of the company about four years ago when he was making plans for his wedding. He had to decide on an appropriate suit, and when he appointed relatives to help with the selection process, his life was flooded with options for suits, and his laptop had numerous tabs running. Then he got the idea to co-browse and started the company along with the co-founder Michael Levinson.
While co-browsing isn’t exactly something new -it is not a new concept – Abraham stated that Netscape, Google and Zoom all tried or attempted to do similar things to facilitate collaboration across the web, but Joyned is working on something different.
“The fundamental purpose of joy is to allow retailers to take control of their shopping experience. And let shoppers buy together,” said the CEO. “Joyned integrates the social aspect in online shopping and helps to close the gap between offline and online.”
Utilizing Joyned the platform, retailers can reduce the cost of acquiring customers, optimize conversion rates, and increase loyalty. In general, retailers can expect sales to increase between 6 – 15%. When customers invite their friends to join and experience upwards of 250% improvement in retention rates. And 40 percent more traffic as per Abraham.
The capital raise will provide the groundwork for Joyned’s massive U.S. expansion, where it is already seeing the effects. The company is looking to expand the marketing staff in Florida as well as additional support and sales functions.
What Is The Sales Grow Of Company
In the past year, it introduced the platform and has seen its sales grow quickly. They have reached $500,000, and is now on track to surpass 1 million in sales in the next year. Abraham said.
Looking ahead, Joyned will follow a Series. As soon as it closes three or more major companies in the U.S. to begin using the platform.
“Today, social media marketing is causing big corporations to appear, yet merchants are dependent on it,” Abraham added. “Instead of having a black box for engagements, we’re creating a fresh perspective. It allows merchants to enter the black box and gives them a major competitive edge.”
