Brief history: it began with a need
Reservax began over a decade ago in 2004. It was born out of a need for booking a high volume of subjects for experiments in a psychology lab at the University of British Columbia. At the time, we were studying visual cognition and booking dozens of subjects for experiments each week. Facilitating these appointment bookings and cancellations manually was proving to be a logistical challenge for our research assistants. Reservax significantly simplified this process for us.
From there on, Reservax had spread to labs beyond the psychology department, such as those in the Computer Science department needing to book subjects for studies in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), as well as unexpected departments such as Physics!
Reservax has since grown from its humble beginnings into a system that has been used in universities all around the world. From individual labs to entire departments running for-cash as well as human subject pool studies, we have aimed to help out the best that we can, at a rate that has always been appealing to normally resource-limited academia. For instance, we even had upper-year undergraduate students book our system for their own thesis project recruiting!
Reservax has now helped researchers book hundreds of thousands of appointments, indirectly resulting in hundreds of completed research studies around the world.
Reservax has always been focused on being there for researchers, especially since Reservax was born out of a research lab.
We have successfully helped numerous labs book thousands of human subjects for their studies for over a decade. We have seen the authoring of many journal papers, dissertations, and theses. We have kept our service running even during unprofitable periods when we were paying out of our own pocket to help you, our valued researchers, get your studies done. We have always been proud of this fact. It may not have always made business sense, but it has always made sense to us.
Our operations are currently based in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada, with servers also located in Canada near Quebec. While we are a small company, we strive to keep this useful tool going for as long as we can.
Feel free to give us a shout if you have any questions!
Saving the world
Our motto and motivation revolves around "saving the world one appointment at a time."
Reservax is committed to donating a portion of its profits to charity. Thus, each appointment booked with our system is doing its share in saving the world, literally one appointment at a time!
We also believe that good research makes the world a better place. So we are committed to making our service available for as long as we possibly can, specifically customized to the needs of research, and at a price that is accessible to as wide of an audience as possible. In doing so, we believe this also helps save the world, one appointment at a time.
So what are you waiting for? Join now, and help us save the world one appointment at a time!
