Our story

When creating the guestbook for the launch of a luxury serviced apartment in 2014, Founder & CEO Julie Grieve became frustrated with the cost and administration required to ensure it was continuously up to date. Quoted £9,000 to produce a App which had limited content control, Julie recognised a gap in the market and June 2016 Criton was born.
