When searching for something new to use we often ask people around us for their personal recommendations and thoughts. Here at Uddr, we want to help businesses find the very best available software and technology on the market to suit their budget and business requirements.
This blog will introduce you to SimplyBook.me, an uddrly-incredible, affordable, online booking system which helps service-based businesses streamline their booking process.
Many of our Uddr Partners run a business which requires customers to book an available date and time for their service, whether that be for hair appointments, window cleaning or plumbing. Whilst writing appointments into a diary and liaising with customers on what dates are and aren’t available is a business’s first port of call in the beginning, it can become very time consuming and can be open to errors.
You’ll be glad to know that there’s software out there that can do all of this for you, leaving you with time to concentrate on what it is that you’re good at. Hooray!
What is SimplyBook.me?
After doing extensive research into a platform that we could recommend and various meetings involving coffee, SimplyBook.me has come out on top. Not only on price (with packages starting from free) but on functionality, customisation and ease of use too.
Your customers are able to see an online, mobile-optimised calendar that shows available dates and times you’re free and book what suits their schedule. If you currently have a website, this calendar can be integrated with your existing site, or you can take bookings using SimplyBook.me via Facebook, Instagram or Google.
The platform offers custom features such as coupons and gift cards, customisable emails, sale of products, membership and services, waiting lists, loyalty schemes and more. And if you take deposits, yes, the app can do this too!
How SimplyBook.me could help your business
We’re technology boffins and know our stuff, so we'll only recommend software that we would use ourselves and that we consider worth the investment. We are as passionate about start-ups, and small and medium businesses succeeding as they are themselves, which is why we are always on the lookout for ways to help them improve.
We all know how much time business admin can take up, leaving you with less time to use those skills and that knowledge that pays the bills. After speaking with various Partners, we identified a need for a booking system that simplified the process for them, and their customers.
As well as an easy to use booking system for your customers, SimplyBook.me provides an online admin area for you to access all of your bookings - no more fear of losing your diary. There’s no need to worry about data security either, as the platform has got this all under control with features such as HIPAA, SOAP, password security and SSL.
With an array of features, benefits and super affordable options, any business looking to implement a booking system should consider this platform.
