Scheduling

Sync Calendars

Effortlessly sync with calendar applications like Google Calendar, consolidating all schedules into one central hub. This integration streamlines the process of scheduling appointments for clients, eliminating the need for manual input and ensuring efficient time management.

Set Up Buffers

Before meetings, teams often need time to gather notes or prepare for discussions. By incorporating buffers, they can allocate dedicated time between meetings for these tasks, ensuring adequate preparation and minimising disruptions.

Avoid Surprises

To prevent unexpected last-minute surprises, businesses can set up the platform to only accept appointments within a predetermined time frame. This ensures that businesses have ample time to prepare for scheduled meetings, reducing the likelihood of rescheduling.

Plan Breaks

To ensure that both businesses and their teams have breaks, the application allows them to set up designated break times. This ensures that no meetings are scheduled during these periods, giving teams the chance to recharge and prepare for upcoming events.

Mark Time-Off

To accommodate holidays or scheduled days off, businesses can mark time-off periods. This ensures that no meetings are scheduled during these days. If any meetings have already been arranged, they can be rescheduled to a more suitable time on a later date.

Last Minute Cancellations

To mitigate last-minute cancellations that may disrupt schedules, businesses can set specific time limits within which clients are allowed to cancel meetings for rescheduling. Additionally, to deter cancellations, businesses can impose a predetermined fee that must be paid in case of cancellation.
Teamwork

Manage Team Members

For streamlined organisation, businesses can assign each user their individual calendar, tracking all their meetings and tasks. These calendars can synchronise with a central dashboard calendar, aiding in scheduling meetings around other commitments and providing visibility into everyone's availability within the team.

Map Departments

To streamline operations and enhance clarity, businesses have the option to segment workspaces, establishing separate booking pages for each department. This functionality allows users to schedule meetings with the specific team they need, minimising booking errors and ensuring smoother coordination across departments.

User Roles

To ensure optimal utilisation of team expertise, businesses can designate member roles and delineate the skill sets of each user to clients. This enables clients to understand team strengths and make bookings with the team possessing the specific skills they require, fostering better alignment between client needs and team capabilities.

Charge Premiums

To maintain a balanced workload and ensure that specific users are not overbooked, businesses can implement premiums for certain users, resulting in an additional charge for booking their services. This strategy can be applied to users renowned for their skills, making their services exclusive and incentivising clients to prioritise their bookings accordingly.

Link CRMs

Integrated with CRM systems, this feature enables businesses to add new potential leads or update existing ones seamlessly. By leveraging this integration, businesses can enhance their CRM capabilities, gaining deeper insights into the profiles of users who are most likely to benefit from their services.

Booking Form Parameters

To bolster meeting preparation, businesses can establish supplementary booking form parameters. This valuable feature empowers businesses to gather essential data customised to the unique requirements of the departments with which clients are scheduling meetings.

Mobile App

When employees are on the move and require access to team schedules, there's no need to fret. This capability is readily available through the mobile app. With this application, they can remotely view schedules and assess them from both iOS and Android phones, ensuring the team remains up-to-date with priorities.

Push Notifications

To keep the team informed and on track, businesses can utilise notifications as a means of staying alerted. These notifications can be configured to trigger when appointments are booked or when clients cancel, ensuring that the team remains abreast of their schedules at all times.
Suiting Needs

One-On-One Meetings

To elevate client engagement, businesses can facilitate one-on-one meetings for interviews or consultations. By leveraging these meeting tools, they streamline their workflows and simplify the process of conducting meetings for their entire team.

Paid Meetings

To optimise business profitability during meetings, businesses can exercise the flexibility to set up paid meetings. Payments can be processed either in full before an appointment, partially prior to the meeting, or as a deposit, ensuring that the value of the meeting is realized. This is typically utilised for consultation meetings, where a fee is charged.

Online Or Offline

To prioritise user comfort, businesses have the flexibility to utilise any meeting software, such as Zoom or Zoho Meeting, or even schedule in-person meetings if the client prefers. This preference can be specified in the form, ensuring that they are aware of the client's preferred meeting method and can accommodate accordingly.

Reports

Dashboard

To ensure the entire team stays informed about each other's activities, businesses can create calendar dashboards. These dashboards allow team members to access and view their own or another user's calendar, providing insights into their schedule for a specific timeframe.

Revenue By Staff

To capitalise on trending services, businesses are equipped with the capability to filter their services or staff based on revenue. This functionality enables businesses to identify which services generated the highest revenue per meeting, aiding in informed decision-making.

Customer Reports

For accurate insights into customer behaviour, businesses can activate the creation of customised reports with tailored filters to suit their specific needs. These reports delve into trends in bookings, revenue, and customer behaviour, offering invaluable data for analysis.

List Reports

List reports empower businesses to track revenue generated under various conditions, such as the number of appointments across different services or those booked by paying users. This capability aids in gaining deeper insights into business performance and customer behaviour.

Appointments By Status

To enhance organisational efficiency, businesses can categorise meetings into different statuses, including confirmed, completed, no-shows, cancelled, or rescheduled. This categorisation system enables teams to manage calendars effectively and adapt to changes such as cancellations.

Customisation

Branding

To create a booking page that resonates with the brand identity, businesses have the freedom to integrate various branding elements, including page titles and background images. This customisation option ensures that users recognise the booking page as associated with the specific business.

Embeds

To improve the visibility of a booking page for users, businesses can choose to embed the page directly onto their website. This integration seamlessly integrates the booking page with their site, ensuring brand consistency and enhancing accessibility for users.

Host Domain

To enhance the visibility of a meeting booking page, businesses can link the page to their hosting domain. This not only provides the page with a valuable SEO boost but also imparts authority, as it becomes associated with their website domain.

Experience

Resource Booking

Resource Booking is a powerful tool that empowers customers to reserve specific resources for a predetermined period. This feature proves invaluable for businesses looking to efficiently manage their inventory or rent out equipment. By allowing customers to book resources such as equipment, facilities, or spaces, businesses can optimise resource utilisation while generating additional revenue streams.

Workspace Booking

Workspace booking, one of the highlighted booking types, allows customers to choose a specific team for their services. With this feature, users can select their preferred team or let the system automatically assign one if no choice is made.

Staff Booking

Staff booking enables clients to schedule appointments with specific team members according to their preferences. Whether it's based on a team member's skill set or communication style, clients have the flexibility to make selections that align with their needs, ensuring optimal engagement throughout the booking process.

Language and Timezones

To cater to users from diverse regions, this platform features built-in language and time zone detection. With this functionality, businesses can effortlessly communicate with clients in their preferred language and schedule appointments according to their local time zone, ensuring seamless interaction and convenience for all parties involved.

Service Booking

The last of the booking types, service booking, allows clients to directly schedule the specific services they need. This streamlines the booking process, eliminating the necessity for clients to provide detailed information in the booking form, as the most appropriate team can address their service requirements.

Terms and Conditions

To ensure customers are well-informed about terms and services prior to booking, it's recommended to integrate a terms and conditions notice within the booking form. This inclusion offers users clarity on business policies and legal statements, enhancing transparency and trustworthiness.

Customer Portal

To simplify the booking process for loyal clients, businesses can implement a customer portal. This portal allows regular clients to log in, making it easy for them to book new appointments, review past meetings, and access their schedule to view upcoming appointments effortlessly.

Customer Self-Service

To alleviate the burden on teams managing updates to user meetings, customers are empowered to take control. They can book, cancel, and reschedule their meetings if they are unable to attend at the scheduled time. This feature enables teams to focus on their tasks without interruptions.
Reminders

Appointment Confirmation

To keep clients informed about the status of their appointments, Bookings sends out meeting confirmations via email and/or SMS. These notifications notify users when their meetings have been successfully booked, canceled, or rescheduled.

Appointment Reminders

To reduce the likelihood of users forgetting or overlooking their scheduled meetings, the platform utilises reminders that can be sent at regular intervals to both clients and teams. This ensures that appointments are well-managed and attended.

Email Branding

To bolster trust in email communications, businesses can incorporate their own branding. This involves integrating brand colors and logos into emails, thereby reinforcing brand recognition and providing clients with confidence in the legitimacy of the messages.

SMS Reminders

According to survey data, research suggests that users are more likely to open SMS messages compared to emails. Sending SMS reminders boosts the chances of users opening and recalling their meetings, thereby decreasing the rate of no-shows.
