3. Reduce number of no shows with automated email or sms reminders sent via the booking widget.
4. Works 24/7 so your clients can book at a time convenient to them.
5. Affordable, easy to use and install on to your current website or link to your facebook page.
Here is an example of a booking widget layout:
How it works?
View appointment slots against treatment types and stylist availability all in one place in real-time in order to make an online booking.
The example layout (above) shows appointment slots which can be time based i.e. 1 hour etc (you decide on the time rules against the slots to ensure you have plenty of time between each appointment).
The Booking widget will allow you to:
- Select Available Appointment slots (based on time i.e. 1 slot = 1 hour)
- Select Appointment search – via days of week.
- Appointment Search over time period – above example shows 60 day count (3 month period) – but this can be drop down option for 7 days, 30 days etc.
- Choose Types (list of hair, nails, eyebrows) etc
- Choose Stylist name from drop down list
- The booking widget will automatically will allocate time slot (s) available for ALL stylists or just a particular stylist if you wish
See overview of the Stylist available and then click into the time slots you want to book.
- Enter in description box any particular comments you need to make stylist aware of.
- It will then confirm the booking at the bottom of the screen to say Date, time, stylist and treatment type.
- It will send out email or SMS reminder to client a day before the treatment is due (or any time you choose i.e. 3 days before etc)
