Pros

Clients love how easy it is to book appointments online. Love how you can customize confirmation notifications for clients.

CC

Courtney C.

I like how easy it is for clients to receive text confirmations and book on the mobile app within a few clicks. I also like the fact that I trust the email system sending emails out successfully.

TB

Tatiyana B.

The reporting is top notch and the ability to access everything remotely from our phones and see appointments and transactions in real-time is a great benefit.

BM

Benjamin M.

Pros

It's a straightforward platform that is easy for our teams to use and it has been wonderful to partner with a platform that takes our feedback and collaborates with us on solutions.

CK

Chiara K.

Switching from our primitive software we had before couldn’t have happened sooner. Boulevard is effective in booking, checking out and the customer service/tailoring is out of this world awesome.

SG

Steven G.

The few times that I’ve had to check a customer out it feels like Boulevard is doing it for me that’s how flawless it is. I really love these guys.

KL

Kristina L.

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.

AT

Amanda T.

Needs Apple Pay support desperately, especially in this era of COVID-19, this is a glaring omission.

DR

Derek R.

Switched to Vagaro from Booker and I hate it but I’m trapped.

TT

Tabitha T.

Cons

The random booking algorithm is confusing and does not produce random results. Currently lacking options for Apple pay and Google pay.

MW

Matthew W.

The app especially is problematic, and offers no actual function of usefulness. The inability to view appointment details on the app (what service is requested), is especially frustrating.

Ac

Amanda c.

This makes it time-consuming and leaves the possibility of error if a service provider works at multiple locations.

Boulevard

If you are not using Boulevard, you're doing it wrong!

Reviewed 4 months ago

Loved everything, from the set up (they are very hands on, unlike Vagaro) to the demo and the customer service! All amazing.

Pros

After using Mindbody, Vagaro and Bewe we noticed that on the salon end you can not tell if a customer chose a specific employee for there services. Boulevard has a feature that any client who books online with a chosen employee they request will show up with a heart icon for the appointment on our end. THIS IS SO DIFFICULT for a Nail Salon especially with new clients daily. The appointment reminders are by text and email at time of booking the appointment and 48 hours before (I believe these are customizable). The clients can text you to cancel (reduces phone calls). You can also see the exact times the clients confirmed by either text or email (this helps

Cons

I wouldn't even say this is a Con because they are constantly updating and adding new features, but most softwares are catered towards Hair Salons/Barber Shops we would love for more customization for Nail Salons. For example: Hair Salons have "Processing Times" where the employee is free for 20 or so minutes. We would love a "Soaking Time" for manicures that require a soak off before the start of the service.
