Pros

How flexible and powerful it is. Responsive and effective team based in London.
But overall, its a pretty good system that still meets most of my business needs, so I would recommend this product.
Customer service and care for the client is top notch. Versatile for many different fields of business.

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.

Cons

There doesn't appear to have been any development in the longest time. I'm sick of it and desperate to find a decent alternative that doesn't cost the earth.
Unless you do your own customisation (which appears to be their priority) the interface is off-putting for clients, GDPR implementation is defective.
Unless it is changed immediately any customer would be crazy to use this service as it puts their clients financial security at serious risk.

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.
