Booking System Integrations, Addons & Plugins Update

Booking System Integrations, Addons & Plugins Update

Booking Live offer a wide range of compatible booking system integrations, plugins and add-ons to enhance your business’s functionality. We’re constantly adapting our software and increasing the amount of compatible integrations available to you. Four of our most popular integrations are: SMS and email reminders, postcode lookups, MailChimp and Facebook. Read on to find out more, we’re sure at least one of our integrations will help further your booking system experience.

SMS and Email Reminders

Increase customer reliability

Make sure your customers don’t forget their bookings by sending automated SMS and email reminders. Just set the reminder to send however far in advance you want and the integration does the rest! Customers will have confirmation of their booking and, in turn, they’ll value your interaction and efficiency. This will also make them more likely to use your services again, yet another positive!

Postcode Lookup

Save time

Booking Live also integrates with Postcoder so your customers can complete online sign-up and registration forms with ease. Customers simply enter their postcode and Postcoder finds their address, all they have to do is click on the correct first line. If customers are able to make bookings quickly and easily they’re more likely to come back and book with you again.

MailChimp

Promote yourself

We know it’s near impossible to stay in touch with all customers without a little help. That’s why we’ve developed our software to integrate with MailChimp; a specialised email marketing tool. By using the MailChimp integration you’ll be able to automatically subscribe customers to your mailing list when they make a booking or send an enquiry. With MailChimp’s expert tools you’re also able to learn more about your customers. This means you can keep them up to date with content they’re actually interested in.

Facebook App

Increase bookings

Enable customers to check availability directly from your Facebook page. If you already have Facebook you can install our app within seconds by visiting our Facebook app page. Integration with Facebook saves customers’ time, which would otherwise be spent getting from Facebook to your website, as well as increasing bookings.

If you want to know more about the various integrations we offer visit our Extras & Addons page or contact us. Make sure you start making the most of our great selection of booking system integrations today!

Online Booking Software for Charities by Booking Live

Online Booking Software for Charities by Booking Live

Charities are undeniably busy organisations, so it makes sense online booking software isn’t at the top of their priority list. But the truth is online booking software can help charities out a lot more than you may think. Many charities organise fundraising events, from sponsored runs to fashion shows, but this can be a laborious process. Organisers have to meet up to plan each event, with volunteers having to send invitations, sell tickets and repeatedly respond to the same questions. Payments then have to be processed, often through paper-based systems which aren’t accurate or secure. Even after the event has finished there’s still work to do, feedback forms and thank you letters have to be created and sent to each guest. The whole process requires a lot of time and input. But with online booking software for charities valuable time can be saved and costs can be kept to a minimum. Feedback forms and thank you letters can even be sent automatically!

Complete Event Organisation

Online booking software can help charities from pre-event to post-event – and all the stages in between! Charities can plan and host events without having the extra stress of tasks such as chasing up RSVPs. By having all attendees’ details in one centralised system it’s easy to keep them updated with information and last minute changes via SMS and email. You can even post FAQs so you don’t have to answer the same questions again and again.

Improved Efficiency

Using online booking software for charities means volunteers’ time can be spent more efficiently. Gone are the days of forgetting who’s been assigned to what, with online booking software organisers are able to delegate specific tasks to individuals. With easy-to-use online booking systems it doesn’t matter if volunteers have little technical knowledge. Human error is removed and there’s no need for attempts to be made at creating counter-productive spreadsheets. Online booking software does all the leg-work.

Secure Processes

With online booking software you won’t lose track of vital donations as they’re all securely stored and recorded. Back-ups are also carried out regularly so your data doesn’t go anywhere. Donations can also be tracked and users are able to print and email receipts to people who’ve donated.

Increase Success

By managing each step of the process, online booking software for charities makes event organisation seamless and problem-free. After an event, online booking software makes it possible for mass emails to be sent to attendees, thanking them for coming and asking for their thoughts and feedback. Online booking systems even simplify the production of feedback forms with integrated, specialised applications. Once filled in these forms are easily accessible by users so they’re able to increase future event success.

Booking Live wish to welcome you to the world of online booking software for charities. If you’re interested in finding out more or want to sign-up for our online booking software contact us today.

Online Accounting : Xero Booking System

Online Accounting : Xero Booking System

Booking Live systems are so much more than online booking software. Our systems combine expert booking features with professional integrations so you can manage your business and your bookings. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Xero, online accounting software providers. Xero connects your accounts to the rest of your business, just like Booking Live connects your bookings to the rest of your business. Read on to find out more about the online accounting software.

Why’s it so special?

With Xero you can instantly send invoices, check up-to-date financial information and track sales all from one place. The online accounting software even enables you to allow users, such as bookkeepers, to log-in remotely so they can look over your accounts. All of this is possible as Xero runs by connecting to the cloud which in turn saves a great deal of time and expense.

Think switching online accounting software sounds too much like hard work?

Think again, with Xero you can convert to their software from Sage… for free! Xero work with Movemybooks to seamlessly transfer your online accounting information. (Those in the know at Xero have even said a QuickBooks conversion tool is under-way.).

You might’ve guessed by now that we’re pretty excited about Xero’s online accounting expertise. That’s mainly because we use it ourselves here at Booking Live and it’s the best online accounting software we’ve used yet! If you want to find out more about Xero visit their website. Make sure you check out all the integrations, addons and plugins that are available to Booking Live users which include our very own Facebook app. Do get in touch if there are any other integrations you’d like to see on your online booking system, we’d love to hear from you!

Client Spotlight: Get Wet – Booking Systems for Activity Providers

Client Spotlight: Get Wet – Booking Systems for Activity Providers

This month we chatted to Get Wet who talked us through how Booking Live has helped in the running of their activity business.

What do Get Wet do?

Get Wet are outdoor adventure providers based in North Wales. They offer activities such as paintballing, rafting and the highest high ropes course in the UK!

How Do Booking Live Help?

Here at Booking Live we set Get Wet up with a fully functional website which allows their users to easily navigate around booking pages, activity sections and more. Our Booking Live website has incorporated all of Get Wet’s design wants and needs including their logo and images of their activities. Get Wet are able to log-in and edit their website accordingly so they can update any activity descriptions and upload more images to their photo gallery to ensure they stay ahead of competitors.

We caught up with Jon from Get Wet to find out what they really think of Booking Live…

“We’ve been working with Booking Live for about 4 years now and they’ve always been good at what they do. In fact we haven’t had any problems so far! Development is always delivered on time, if there ever are delays it’s on our side so Booking Live are very patient in terms of waiting.

In regards to our Booking Live website I’m happy with the finished article right now, it is something we can edit and change easily and quickly – it’s exactly what we currently need. We very much appreciate Booking Live for going out of their normal working systems to help us with our business. We hope one day, when time and money permits us, to be completely in tune with what Booking Live is capable of.

I’m truly very grateful to have gotten off the plane from California and rushed to a meeting in Bristol to meet Booking Live all those years ago. We’ll continue to support Booking Live throughout their future like they do us.”

Could 2015 be Social Shopping’s Comeback Year?

Could 2015 be Social Shopping’s Comeback Year?

Just a few years ago social shopping was set to be the future of E-commerce, although it’s only just starting to catch on. The aim was to mimic the interactions which take place when browsing physical shops. Shoppers were encouraged to share their buying experiences with friends on social media sites where they could then ask advice and discuss their purchases. After an initial flop a new wave of social shopping looks set to dominate 2015.

Social Shopping’s Second Life

The great social shopping phenomenon started off with the creation of a virtual reality world that goes by the name of Second Life. Within this digital space users are able to browse and make purchases in virtual reality shops. Even major brands such as Dell and Adidas were seen creating Second Life presences. Although the Second Life site continues to run, the social shopping element isn’t as influential as it was and major brands have severed ties with the virtual reality world. We hope social shopping’s actual second life is more successful than its first…

“Bring the Power of Social Media to your Sales Strategy”

That’s the tagline of the social shopping service Soldsie. Soldsie works with well-known sites such as Facebook and Instagram to create an innovative social shopping experience. Users are able to post their products on social media sites so their customers can make purchases by leaving a comment. Shoppers simply have to leave the comment “sold” to express their purchase. From here they can continue browsing until they’re ready to check out which is when the item (or items) they initially commented on can be found in their shopping basket.

Although this is aimed more at products such as jewellery and clothing this development is good news for online bookings. With an increase in success will come an increase in development, including the ability to book via comment!

The Influence of F-Commerce

Techopedia helpfully defines F-commerce as:

“Facebook commerce (F-commerce) refers to e-commerce that is facilitated by the Facebook social media platform. Facebook is a major enterprise, with hundreds of millions of users and near-constant media exposure. Facebook commerce seeks to use elements of Facebook to drive sales.”

That’s right, Facebook is influential enough to have created its very own branch of E-commerce. Although F-commerce faced a number of challenges in 2012, from usability issues to people not being in the “shopping zone” when logging on to the site, the company appears to have as much determination as ever.

Launched and shortly shut-down Facebook Gifts was a gimmick created by the social network so users could go social shopping for digital gifts which they could send to their Facebook friends. The corresponding element of Facebook Credits aimed to incorporate E-commerce within the site through creation of a virtual currency. As the credits ended up primarily used within Facebook games the site discontinued the feature within the same year.

In 2015 Facebook looks set to continue its success in driving traffic to sites where purchases are made, rather than directly enabling sales to be made within the social network.

The Rumours Are True…

In September 2014 Twitter officially released the news that they’ve started testing their Twitter “buy” button. The button will enable users to buy directly from a Tweet. Twitter say this social shopping feature will improve functionality so online shopping is quick and easy. They believe “sellers will gain a new way to turn the direct relationship they build with their followers into sale”. But what does this mean for online bookings? Here at Booking Live we believe a “Book” button will soon come along but in the meantime businesses can incorporate the “Buy” button for vouchers and bookings such as courses and classes.

How do I Prepare for This New Wave of Social Shopping?

In regards to Facebook, companies need to ensure they aren’t overly pushing for sales to be made directly via the social networking site. Keep in mind that consumers are online to find out more about your company and interact: they’re looking to socialise rather than shop or make a booking. By giving users the option to book online through a Facebook App you’re more likely to make a sale due to lessening the feeling of pressure. Also remember Facebook works both ways in that you should include links to your social media pages on your website. Including “share” buttons on your booking pages increases the likelihood of social shopping as your customers’ friends will see the booking and ask about it – they may even book on for themselves!

The immense number of social media users online at any one time presents a terrific opportunity for social shopping in terms of sales and bookings. Booking Live can help ensure your business is social shopping ready through various features and integrations. Contact our Sales Executive to find out more today.

The same applies to our suppliers in that we work with both small, local business and large, international businesses.

You can rest assured we choose only the most professional and reliable suppliers to further both our clients’ success and ours. That’s why we chose Rackspace, Skylark Creative & DataKom.

One of their team was even kind enough to attend our Booking Live event back in September where they gave a great talk about the work they do. You can view a slideshow version of the presentation on Slideshare. If you’re interested in creating a website or updating an existing one contact us today. We can make sure your Booking Live system is seamlessly integrated within your company’s website to ensure your brand identity is secured as well as increasing online bookings and sales.

DataKom: Communications Providers

As online booking providers we’re all too familiar with the problems technology businesses can face, but we’ve definitely found reliable providers in DataKom. DataKom have been particularly helpful in accommodating our HQ moves throughout the years, sending out engineers to install new lines around a time that suited us.

Why Do I Need to Know All of This?

We’ll admit aspects such as our communication providers may not have a direct link to your online booking system but without all these “behind the scenes” suppliers we wouldn’t be able to deliver as great a service as we do. Metaphorically speaking it takes a lot of small cogs to run a big machine. We’re sharing these insights with you to provide a full understanding of how we work here at Booking Live. If you have any queries or if you’re one of our current suppliers and you’d be interested in featuring in a “Behind the Scenes” piece then please contact caitlin@bookinglive.

Black Friday 2014: Don’t Panic, It’s Not The End of the World

Black Friday 2014: Don’t Panic, It’s Not The End of the World

It’s somewhat inevitable this year’s Black Friday will be just that considering the weather forecast… But Black Friday doesn’t refer to the worsening weather or “end of the world” theories as the name may suggest. It’s the Friday before Cyber Monday and will take place on Friday 28th November this year. Similarly to Cyber Monday, Black Friday started as an American concept named so due to the mayhem caused by the first unofficial day of Christmas shopping. Its negative connotation has since been turned on its head, used instead to describe businesses as being “in the black”  in terms of profit. Thanks to Amazon’s release of UK discounts over Black Friday four years ago Britain now has more opportunities to increase sales and profit.  

How Do I Take Advantage of Black Friday?

As Cyber Monday is purely focused on online sales it may seem the success of Black Friday is harder for companies who’re taking online bookings to harness. But Black Friday shouldn’t be written off. The Telegraph even say Black Friday 2014 is set to be “the biggest online shopping day ever in the UK”. It’s clear to see the last Friday in November is fast becoming as influential an online presence as its Monday counterpart. Just follow Booking Live’s simple steps to ensure your business’s sales increase just in time for Christmas!

1. Build Suspense

Build suspense by incorporating a count down timer in to your website or post tweets and Facebook statuses stating things such as “only 1 week to go until we release our Black Friday discounts!”. Not only will this build suspense and excitement but it’ll also ensure customers don’t forget.

2. Be Bold

Emphasise your offer of discounts and deals as being for “one day only” and “exclusive” to grab new and existing customer’s attention and to ensure your discounts stand out more than your competitors’. It’ll also prevent users from slipping in to the “I’ll look later” mentality that many businesses are guilty of causing. When customers think they have a large window of time in which to make a booking or purchase they’re more likely to put it off and end up leaving before completing the action.

3. Offer Gift Vouchers

Don’t forget the all important festive period Black Friday is linked with! Provide your customers with gift options in the form of vouchers which they can print off, or have posted, wrap up and place under the Christmas tree in time for their friends and family to unwrap, redeem and enjoy.

Booking Live integrate with well-known gift agents such as Groupon and buyagift.com so you can sell and redeem vouchers directly from your website. For a full list of voucher redemption companies Booking Live integrate with check out our integrations page.

4.  Timing is Key

We recommend setting your promotions to run from midnight on the 28th to midnight on the 29th to ensure your customers feel they’re getting a full 24 hour period in which to make the most of your offers. This is especially important for UK customers as Friday 28th isn’t a holiday so many people will be inactive online during the day due to being at work. Keep an eye on the morning, lunchtime and evenings as these are typically the most busy in terms of online bookings and sales.

5. Interact Throughout the Day

By interacting with customers via social media throughout the 28th you’ll create a sense of urgency. Consider updates such as “only 3 places left on the April skydive, book now to avoid disappointment” to persuade people to book on our buy vouchers.

6. Check Your Website & Booking System’s Capabilities

If you’ve followed our steps so far you’ll no doubt experience an increase in traffic to your site on the Friday. But is your website capable of handling this? Booking Live’s booking systems and websites come armed with features and are securely hosted by Rackspace with 100% uptime. This ensures your website doesn’t crash during busy periods such as Black Friday. If you’re interested in our website design services please contact our Sales Executive.

Don’t wait until Boxing Day to offer discounts, now more people than ever are aware of Black Friday this year looks set to smash last year’s records in terms of sales. Ensure your business is ready to take advantage of the day with Booking Live’s powerful and specialist online booking systems. Check out our plans & pricing page or contact our Sales Executive today!

BookingLive Version 3: An Update & Preview

BookingLive Version 3: An Update & Preview

A Brief Snapshot

After 5 successful years BookingLive is undergoing its biggest upgrade to date and the most exciting part is that it’s just around the corner. Here at BookingLive we’ve accumulated years of learning and client feedback to produce something really quite special: the next generation of online booking software, Booking Live Version 3. The following post gives a preview and update on our progress so far. 

Customer Profile

BookingLive has been aware for a while now of the need to create Customer Profiles to store profile photos, member IDs, previous bookings and enquiries all in one place. Our team have not only added this but have implemented a time machine feature to display points in your customers’ past and future. This includes when bookings were made, when emails were sent, when bookings were edited, when information was updated and more!

bookinglive_version_3

 

Customer Account

In addition to the Customer Profile, there is an enhanced Customer Account module in Booking Live Version 3.

bookinglive_version_3

Content Management System

In BookingLive Version 3 you can expect to see the CMS our clients are currently using so as to cause as little disruption as possible. This CMS promotes accessible site design, semantic mark-up and HTML5 use. Redesigned to make content updates a breeze, the CMS allows you to build rich web content to support and display information on your products. It also includes fluid layouts, which means no more fixed templates, and live editing with multi-device preview.

bookinglive_version_3

Reporting Intelligence

Our booking system Version 3 enables business intelligence reporting at your fingertips as a key area of improvement within Booking Live has been data reporting. Booking Live clients are now able to determine the output of data within the data rich reports with the ability to export in a variety of formats complete with their own branding.

bookinglive_version_3

Single Sign-on

Single sign-on is a key user enhancement. It allows both you and your customers to sign in using an existing account such as Google or Facebook, enabling pre-population of data from their social profiles.

bookinglive_version_3

Booking View

The view of a single booking within the admin system will mostly remain the same in the booking system with some enhanced features.

bookinglive_version_3

Dashboard

As requested by many of our clients we’re happy to announce that we’re introducing a flexible, single-click dashboard to summarise key reports and data from your system.

bookinglive_version_3

Calendar View

Another key feature requested by clients is a visual calendar of bookings from which to add and edit bookings. We’ve also introduced a mobile responsive view to cater for day, week and months, alongside locations and products so as to meet the needs of all our clients.

bookinglive_version_3

On the whole, the booking process itself will remain the same. There will be subtle improvements in that the process will be fully responsive, as well as including enhancements of the billing page. In addition to this Booking Live Version 3 is leaning towards development of a one-page checkout process.

BookingLive Version 3

As you can see there are fantastic improvements on the cards for BookingLive Version 3 with a strong emphasis on mobile optimisation. With these developments, BookingLive is putting your company in the hot seat for managing your business and bookings.

Our inward investment in the latest version of online booking software will ensure the longevity of our exciting development roadmap. While we won’t release our complete internal roadmap to the public we are continuing to develop BookingLive software at a rapid pace and hope you will support us during this exciting journey.

If you’re an existing client please feel free to discuss your upgrade options with your account manager and/or sales executive to find out when this is feasible and any costs that may be applicable. If you’re interested in signing up as a new client for Booking Live Version 3 please contact us today.
