Pros

Amazing for social proof and I had good feedback from patients that Genbook was easy to use.
The software is perfectly made and really friendly to use. My Best investment of the Year 2020.
The ease of booking clients and having them great email and or text confirmation and reminders are great.

Pros

I love the way you can customize your subscription to meet whatever needs you have in your space. The site and app are easy to navigate and I love all of the reports that are available to me.
This has been the first program that I used to start my business with, and it is super user friendly for any beginner business owner and current to keep track on your progress.
Clients love how easy it is to book appointments online. Love how you can customize confirmation notifications for clients.

Cons

I frequently have trouble with the app on my mobile device, and this frustrates me.
The only thing that has ever angered me is when Genbook was doing promotions and a prior client got an appt for 1/2 the price and then stripe took a ridiculously large percentage of that.
The inability for the address to be assisted by Google when setting an appointment.

Cons

I had some trouble refreshing the page and getting linked to another site. There was a lot of advertisement for other companies, so I also got distracted at times.
Needs Apple Pay support desperately, especially in this era of COVID-19, this is a glaring omission.
Switched to Vagaro from Booker and I hate it but I’m trapped.

Vagaro

Experienced Esthetician

Reviewed 6 years ago

I switched from Genbook and couldn't be happier. The ease of the set up and ability of my clients to choose services is outstanding! I am a sole proprietor renting space at a wellness facility, I would be completely lost without online booking, Vagaro makes my life so much easier.
