BookingLive has a set process for delivering your booking system.

Upfront we conduct scoping sessions to deliver documentation including technical specification, user personas, interactive wireframes, information arcitecture, process flows and more, before completing a design phase. 

Post design we build and develop your system to specification and this is project managed by our experienced team using industry standard management software. A number of training sessions ensures your system is configured correctly.

You'll have regular progress reports leading up to a testing phase which covers usability, automated, functionality and selenium. After testing, you're ready for a go live.

 

No software to install - Free software updates

Since our earliest beta, customer feedback has defined the booking software we have today. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the platform, and ways to help businesses owners better manage their operations.

BookingLive continually develop the booking software based on customer requests. Our development roadmap ensures your booking system is constantly updated whilst paying one low cost monthly fee. Acceleration of development of course incurs cost.

We are continually moving the platform forward, with updates often several times a year. But before committing to use BookingLive, we strongly suggest that the product should meet your needs as-is, and not on future promise or feature requests.
