    User friendly for both myself and my clients

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Manages my appointment, my income and my expenses

    Pros

    It's dependable and customer service is excellent. Any time I have had questions they were quick to respond.

    Cons

    If a new client is booking the same time as another client-they believe it just went through because they don't realize if they actually got the appt they would get a confirmation email.

    Works well with patience

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Keeping track of income, schedule, goals, and referrals.

    Pros

    I love that my clients can book online. It keeps track of my referrals, gift certificates, client history, and goals.

    Cons

    It doesn't run very fast. Has a lot of glitches. Most of the time I have to write down when my client would like to rebook and finish after they've left so they don't have to wait forever. Also so I can move on to my next client. I wish I could set up a clean up time to the end of my services and customize those clean up times. Since I need more for a Stone Massage or body wrap than a quick 30 minute massage. I would also like to be able to pay for two clients on one ticket. My hope is that this software will get better with time.

    Artichoke Heart of the Company

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    Overall like I said it's been great in the aspect of client database and management there of, managing clients files and dossiers has helped our business to become more professional and more efficient in our endeavors due to the quality of the softwares management.

    Pros

    What we found to be most appealing and of the high quality is the client database aspect of the software, the in-depth spectrum, the seamless referencing and updating information of the clients, consistency of the strength of the database in the sense that we've had no hiccups on information stored or anything of that nature.

    Cons

    Nothing really comes to mind as far as dislike per say, I do think that the company should shift their focus more towards the client database aspect and maybe broaden that great thing that they've accomplished in this field and possibly leave behind me account management part to achieve that, that would be my only recommendation.

    Helps everyday with my own business. Cuts out the middle man.

    Pros

    User friendly! Clients love it. Customers find online booking easy to use. Fits within my budget. Great notation system.

    Cons

    No app :( Doesn't show all info I need from intake. Not sure how I can limit online Booker's to only x amount a day but that's a matter of asking I'm sure.

    Software takes care of the reminders, which frees up my time.

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    Very easy to set up and use. Did not take a ton of time to do. Love the ability to upload clients into the system.

    Cons

    I don't really see a ton of negative things with this software. I guess the only thing I would like the ability to see a report on the notifications. being sent out.
