 Easy To Use Online Booking Software | YouCanBook.me
The online sched­ul­ing soft­ware mar­ket seems to be grow­ing quite rapid­ly these days. A few months ago, I set­tled on two pro­grams I liked: Set­ster and Book­fresh. Set­ster still is my favorite, part­ly due to good sup­port. They are slow­ly mak­ing some good changes to their sys­tem, so please do check out Set­ster. Book­fresh looks nice, but their cus­tomer ser­vice is just ter­ri­ble. They real­ly need to get a phone num­ber to take calls! I did not want to lim­it myself to just one pro­gram to rec­om­mend (as some folks have dif­fer­ent taste) so I stum­bled upon a brand new book­ing pro­gram called You​Can​Book​.me. You​Can​Book​.Me is a Google Mar­ket­place item, which links up with a busi­ness­es’ Google Apps account. The logo and web­site did not real­ly attract me to dig deep­er. I almost went away because the site was not attrac­tive enough. But I decid­ed to give it a try! Glad I stuck around! You​Can​Book​.Me tru­ly is a remark­able pro­gram. It is not as flashy as the Set­sters, Book­fresh or Book­ing­Bug pro­grams out there, but the sim­ple fea­tures are impres­sive. In fact, of all the online book­ing pro­grams I’ve test­ed, You​Can​Book​.Me is the fastest at sync­ing with Google Cal­en­dar. It lit­er­al­ly took sec­onds for it to show up on my Google Cal­en­dar and iPhone and sec­onds to remove it from all my synced cal­en­dars. This pro­gram is pret­ty cus­tom too. You can cre­ate cus­tom forms (ques­tions to ask a client before meet­ing with them) and even cus­tomize the col­ors of the book­ing cal­en­dar. I’ve con­tact­ed the devel­op­er of You​Can​Book​.Me, and he has been very respon­sive. I’ve giv­en him a list of the fea­tures I’d like to see for ser­vice con­trac­tors, and he was very recep­tive. The oth­er pro­grams I’ve rec­om­mend­ed are almost more geared towards busi­ness­es that have a phys­i­cal loca­tion. You​Can​Book​.Me is so sim­ple and cus­tom that a ser­vice con­trac­tor can eas­i­ly use this pro­gram on their emails and web­site. It tru­ly is remark­able. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
