Ovatu Manager overview

Ovatu Manager is a scheduling and online booking tool with recurring appointments, automated reminders, scheduling, device sync, and POS. With the aim of helping businesses to organize their time, staff, and resources, Ovatu Manager boasts features including group scheduling, SMS and email reminders, real-time reporting, online booking, social media integration, point of sale (POS), and more.

The scheduling features within Ovatu Manager allow users to facilitate single or group bookings, offer multiple services within one single booking, set up recurring appointments, and assign a booking to a specific employee or service category. Whenever a booking is made via the online booking system, the Ovatu Manager calendar updates across all devices in order to avoid double bookings or schedule overlaps, and employees can receive alerts when changes to their schedule occur. For added organization, staff can add appointment notes, color code their appointments, and set custom status types to understand their schedule at a glance.

With the online booking tool, customers can make reservations at any time through the company website, Facebook page, or a custom Ovatu Manager mini-site, with notifications alerting staff whenever a new booking is made. The point of sale (POS) feature within Ovatu Manager allows vendors to accept online payments, email invoices, add discounts, calculate taxes, and generate gift cards, customer credit or loyalty points. Customer files are automatically created with sales history, contact logging, current balance, notes, custom fields to collect relevant data, and easy re-booking, and users can gain an overview of how much revenue each customer brings in from the previous bookings.

Ovatu's stellar customer service is the cherry on top of a wonderful online scheduling program.

Love, love, LOVE Ovatu's customer service! I've received responses back as quickly as within a few minutes, but always within a day, even given our 14 hour time zone difference. I was born before personal computers existed (!), and I don't find these programs intuitive, but cust support rep and his crew have been nothing but welcoming and patient with each of my many questions. They are also very open to requests for improvements, and have made small program tweaks for me right away on a couple of occasions. Once I got the scheduler integrated into my website, I rarely need to interact with my clients before they come in for their appointments! I've had more than a few clients mention that they selected my business precisely because they COULD schedule online, without any phone tag delays. Clients really appreciate the email and text message appointment reminders, too (and I appreciate the lack of no-shows), and I love the automatic birthday reminder and review solicitation email follow-ups. The pricing is very affordable and, for everything that is included, is a bargain. I cannot recommend Ovatu enough. I am an extremely satisfied and very happy customer!

Ovatu literally allows me to run my company. It is an affordable price for a small business like my own and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Even though there are a few little tweaks I'd like to see in the future, they are small when compared to all of the benefits I receive from the product in general. I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and run my own company solo. Many NTP students are working to get their private practices off the ground and I always, always recommend using Ovatu for their schedule and invoicing needs. It's great! I had spent months searching for a program like this and when I found Ovatu, I never looked back! Thanks for a great program!!

I would think some of the benefits that I have received from having Ovatu, is just a breakdown of everything you do how many you do how much you’ve done how much you’ve made, and your time and exactly how much time you have left exactly how much time you have in between people,
