Pros

What I like most about the software is the ability to add your appointments quickly to your google calendar. Its been very helpful with managing which appointments I have up for the week.
What I like most about the software is the ease of use and simplicity. It works extremely well to schedule clients and then takes some automation out of the followup process which is helpful.
This is a super powerful platform to get up and running with and there are lots of awesome tutorials on YouTube for nearly any configuration you can imagine.

Pros

I can view my hairdresser availability and schedule my own appointments. I love that Styleseat sends friendly reminders of appointments.
I love how when I book an appointment with my stylist in NJ, I get friendly emails if I haven’t booked with my stylist in a while.
What I like the most about SytleSeat is the ease of use. The app is very user-friendly.

Cons

I am fuming when I block off appointments. People can still book in may have to book appointments in to stop this.
Some of the functions are hidden in weird spots - it may make more sense for larger orgs but for small and single traders, managing preferences out of the 'calendar' section is a bit weird.
At this point in my usage, I am unable to make negative comments.

Cons

My clients are complaining about all of the fees that they are being charged and I am getting the backlash.
It has no customer service number at all if and when you have a problem.
Clients had trouble looking for their own appointments at times, and once in a while the whole app would crash. An entire day of clients without being able to see who’s scheduled next.

Awesome Booking Agent

Reviewed 5 years ago

Everything!

Pros

I love how I am able to fully customize it the way I like. I love the I can accept payments through it as well, and my clients can make deposits and schedule appointments with ease. I love the pricing, too. It is very reasonable so I pray it does not go up anytime soon! lol

Cons

I wish there were a photo album sort of like StyleSeat (although I cannot stand Styleseat), and I wish there were client reviews on the home page for other potential clients to see. Reviews are what brings clients in. I wish there was a section for it in the future.

The site is overall good. Once every thing is up it's pretty much low maintenance.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I like the site because I can take payments and deposit. They also offer a free version. You can create discounts and promo codes

Cons

You can't search other Stylest within the app like StyleSeat offers. You have to pay for an entire month even of your only using it for a week out of the month. You can't customize the deposit per service

An absolute necessity!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I'm a hairstylist who switched from styleseat to acuity scheduling. I must say my books are looking great! It's very easy to use (both me and my clients) and it's very convenient because I don't always have my pricelist in front of me. The best thing I've ever done was switch my scheduler to acuity!

Pros

Fully customizable to suit my business!

Cons

There are none!

A niche booking system

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

While managing Sauna & Spa resort, the Availability feature is critical. And this software does its job perfectly here.

Cons

The software indeed needs a lot of other features like Billing & Invoicing, Automated Scheduling and Attendance Tracking.

Efficient and functional web system.

Reviewed 3 years ago

This tool has accompanied me since my business started, when it was a small undertaking because it provided me with automation in the scheduling of appointments, so it helped me to quickly develop an organized and effective way of working, so my customers are very satisfied with the services provided, should not wait long to be served because thanks to the self-service portal can make reservations online according to the schedule of their preference, however the greatest benefit I got with this tool was the visualization of my work through the gallery, which helped me increase my customer base, in addition to digital marketing promotions on different social networks, have helped me to my work as a stylist is recognized.

Pros

StyleSeat is a web-based solution that allows you to schedule appointments, book online through the self-service portal, manage employees, inventories and payrolls, plus a customer database and billing. An aspect to emphasize of this program is that it offers differences with others available in the market, provides a photo gallery, in which your customers or people who visit your profile, can see part of your work, in addition, has a powerful digital marketing tool that will serve for promotional campaigns, on the other hand, it is very easy to configure and has a configuration wizard and its design is very simple so it facilitates its use. You have an extraordinary quality-price ratio, as it offers a lot of functionality at a modest price.

Cons

Its operation is outstanding, however, I would like the development of a mobile application, as it will facilitate access to this platform.
