Website Booking Calendars Explained

Website Booking Calendars Explained

Website booking calendars are an essential feature of online booking systems. With BookingLive you can easily add a website booking calendar to your website. From here your customers are able to book and pay within seconds. Simply insert Booking Live’s booking calendar widget into your website and you’re off!

Key Benefits Include:

View Live Availability

With a whole host of features and benefits we can’t think why you wouldn’t want a website booking calendar. Not only do they speed up the entire booking process but they also increase interactivity with customers. Customers are able to view live availability with colour coded booking slots where green can be set to show availability and red can show when an option is fully booked.

Minimise Staff Time Spent on Phones

Website booking calendars also enable customers with information about each bookable option you provide. You can even feature FAQs so customers have all the answers in one place. This leads to a decrease in staff time spent on the phone taking bookings and giving customers the same information over and over again. Customers are also more likely to use your services again due to the seamless booking process website booking calendars provide.

Eliminate No-shows & Cancellations

When customers book via a website booking calendar you’re able to send them confirmation and reminder emails and SMS messages. Encouraging customers to attend and keeping up communication are guaranteed ways to eliminate no-shows and cancellations.

Fully Customisable

Not sure if a website booking calendar will work on your website? With BookingLive you can choose from a selection of fully customisable website booking calendar options. We can modify size, colour and font type to ensure the calendar fits your brand’s identity. There’s no need to worry if the services or products you offer change regularly. You’re able to customise the drop down menu options as many times as you like. Check out a handful of our current clients’ website booking calendars on their home pages below.
