Challenges and Needs

  • The biggest challenge School’s OUT have faced as a business was managing the demand for bookings via telephone
  • They needed an online, self-managed booking solution that would be available 24 hours a day
  • Previously, School’s OUT used a booking system which was created for children’s nursery, so not necessarily applicable for them
  • Admin tasks were very time consuming.
