10 Great Things An Online Booking System For Business Can Do

For starters, Booking Live’s online booking system for business enable you to take bookings and payments directly from your website. Although Booking Live comes armed with a whole host of features we’re going to give you a taste and tell you about 10 of our clients’ favourites. To take your Booking Live experience to the next level simply apply any of these features to your online booking system system and start efficiently managing your business today.

Synchronise your Calendar

All Booking Live systems allow you to sync with Google calendar, Outlook, iCal, iPhone and Facebook. This ensures you don’t miss a thing as you’re able to monitor all aspects of your business from one place.

Start e-Marketing

Booking Live is integrated with the successful and cost-effective marketing tool MailChimp. By incorporating MailChimp into your system you’re able to create, customise and send newsletters and promotional material to as many customers as you like. This integration allows you to easily keep customers up to date whilst simultaneously increasing customer loyalty, retention and bookings.

Choose Your Online Payment Providers

Booking Live integrates with a variety of trusted online payment gateways including Worldpay, Sagepay and Paypal. There’s one for any business type, no matter what industry you are in. With BookingLive you can provide customers with the options of part-payments, such as deposits, or full payments. Enabling customers to make payment at the time of booking saves staff time and reduces likelihood of cancellations.

Send Automated Email and SMS Reminders

With Booking Live you’re able to send customers automated and customisable email and SMS confirmations and reminders. By increasing your interaction with customers you’re increasing customer satisfaction. You can also easily send follow-up emails asking for feedback to help further your business.

Sell Vouchers and Run Promotions

Attracting new customers and keeping existing customers happy is easy with Booking Live. Fully integrated with various well-known voucher and daily deal sites BookingLive significantly improves user experiences. Find out how to import codes from well-known sites such as Groupon and wowcher, or create your own promotions to boost sales. Rewarding existing customers is a great way to ensure they come back and providing new customers with incentives will ensure your booking rates increase rapidly.

Utilise Reports and Tracking

Analyse your business’s performance with automated, rich analytic reports and develop your business strategy accordingly. You can even track specific features such as how many people are viewing your website. Each report can be exported as CSV, emailed and printed.

Export and Search Customer Data

Effortlessly export and search through data from your Booking Live system to further business analysis and performance. Export to marketing integrations such as MailChimp and financial accounts including Fresh Books. Searchable booking transaction and purchaser history make managing your bookings easy. These features also enable you to identify trends so you can tailor promotions, offers and marketing information to customers’ specific interests.

Create Your Own Website or Webpage

Although websites are key to creating a strong online presence we understand smaller businesses don’t always want this service. That’s why Booking Live gives you the option of a customisable webpage or complete website design. With an individual webpage your Booking Live widget is embedded. This enables customers to check availability and make bookings, just as they can with Booking Live’s full website design option. The main difference between the two is the lack of online presence created by a single webpage. If you’re interested in Booking Live’s fully functional, optimised and compliant website services head over to our Business Booking System page to find out more.

Promote your Brand through Social Media

Enable customers to check availability and book directly from your Facebook page. If you already have Facebook you can install Booking Live’s Facebook app within seconds. Integration through use of our Facebook app saves time spent getting from Facebook to your website and will increase bookings. It’ll also help promote your brand as customers are able to share their recent bookings on social media platforms for others to see.
