Acuity Scheduling

I honestly can't think of a situation where the system would be ill-suited to anyone. It's more appropriate for those who have more than one service to sell, I suppose. And it might not be as helpful when you're selling products (vs. services), so that would be one thing to improve.

YouCanBook.Me

YouCanBook.Me has made it really easy to schedule calls with applicants and with team members scattered across the world. We use it a lot to schedule follow up calls with potential leads from conferences and other recruiting events, which has been really key in converting leads from those events, and we direct applicants for our internship and staff positions to YouCanBook.Me to schedule interviews. We also use it to schedule calls with team members internationally. It is most useful for scheduling a call between two participants.

Pros

  • Appointment scheduling
  • Calendar sync
  • Online booking
  • Online payments
  • Recurring Appointments

  • One really helpful feature of YouCanBook.Me for our organization is that everyone can see appointment times in their own time zone. We frequently schedule interviews with applicants nationwide, as well as communicating with team members located in 32 different countries, so this has really simplified scheduling.
  • We rely heavily on Google Calendar for staff scheduling, so it is great that YouCanBook.Me can sync your availability straight from your calendar as well as automatically adding meetings to your calendar when they are booked.
  • We use YouCanBook.Me to schedule follow-up calls with people we meet at conferences and other recruiting events. It's really simple to have someone sign up for a call, and this has been a really effective tool for us to stay in communication with prospects.

Cons

  • Confusing backend for users who manage the appointments
  • Could have more direct integration. Currently integrates through Zapier.

  • I'd LOVE to see the ability to have multiple parties find a coordinated time to hold a meeting within the context of YouCanBook.Me
  • The UI for the backend might also be clearer with the names assigned to various functions
  • Even more contemporary landing page options would be welcome

We like it so far but haven't had customers schedule yet so it needs to be proven in real time.

It's a pretty simple tool. You view a calendar. You determine if you can make an appointment or not. You schedule it. You show up. They do a good job making the application easy to use for both the user and the client. I can't really go much deeper other than that

Alternatives Considered

We also use Baritrax and CloudApp for scheduling tasks elsewhere. Acuity, despite its limitations, is much better. Again, I do not think we can scale across the organization with Acuity, but compared with the others, I would pick Acuity 9/10 times. The other tools are much more difficult for the end user and the content managers.

YouCanBook.Me allows fuller messaging in addition to appointments. Calendly is more minimalist than YouCanBook.Me. I prefer having more control over the look and feel, and functionality than it offers.

Return on Investment

  • Less time managing appointment scheduling
  • No time zone confusion - HOURS saved
  • Payments and appointments can be handled in ONE fell swoop!

  • This has saved me untold hours of telephone tag and email wars by allowing people to self-serve. Time is the most valuable commodity.
  • The reminder system also saves time.
  • The best is that, once it's set up, it doesn't require regular maintenance unless my products or meeting types change.
