Likelihood to Recommend

Booker

I think Booker is well suited for a business needing the whole package, such as booking and a POS system. I believe it is less suitable for hair salons because reports are not visual and the system is not simple and to the point. Everything is an add-on for an extra cost, like custom emails to clients. Schedulicity is worth looking at

MINDBODY

MINDBODY is best used by a fitness or yoga center with many classes daily and the need to manage students and memberships all in one place. It will also track hours taught instructors and the classes that each student takes. Individual trainers or professionals will likely not need the advanced features for a small studio or private practice and may find it more cumbersome than helpful.

Pros

Booker

  • Booker does very well as a point of sale program. From front desk check out to back end report generation, Booker gives us an accurate daily picture of business activity.
  • Booker is very good at tracking gift certificate activity. We have a large number of gift certificates and are able to find, edit and void with ease. We are also able to look at the history for each individual certificate or series which helps in troubleshooting.
  • I do not work with scheduling myself but staffers have found Booker to be a valuable tool for managing rooms and therapists.

MINDBODY

  • MindBody does a great job of sending out reminder emails to clients so they do not miss a class.
  • MindBody does a great job at giving instructors a fast and easy way to check in clients and to see who is all signed up for their classes for the week.
  • MindBody has a great payroll feature. All you have to do is set the dates and it generates a nicely laid out PDF of all the classes you taught during that time period and what you have made from them.

Cons

Booker

  • Booker has had some system failures recently that have caused a hard time for us.
  • Sometimes Booker updates reset certain features which cause us to have to reset everything.
  • The Booker app does not have the same features as the full site which sometimes does not make it easy for us.

MINDBODY

  • Some processes are not initially intuitive and take some training to learn.
  • The price could be a little lower to help small business owners succeed.
  • Some sort of alert when a client creates a profile and already has one.
  • A way to view which clients haven't signed a waiver when logged into the staff computer.

I think Booker is very simple for people who are trying to run a gym of about 200 or less clients with minimal apparel/product.

Settings are often buried, user interface rules vary depending on whether it's a newer feature or an older one.From daily usage, people learn how it works and get used to it, but it's not something someone could just pick up without any training or hand-holding.

Booker is not always that quick to respond however, I will say, they do research the problem before getting back to you which I do like. Overall, they are kind and helpful in their responses. Though one big concern is that when there is a larger issue, they are not the best at circling back and contacting us to let us know if or how it has been resolved.

As far as I know, implementing Booker into our business was fairly easy.

Alternatives Considered

Booker

When we tried Micros, though it has robust hardware and software, It is not meant for salons. Square again the same thing, it is meant for small non salon and non service oriented businesses. Booker is by far the best of all salon softwares we have used.

MINDBODY

You'd be hard-pressed to find a product that can stand up to MINDBODY, that being said, DrChrono does it better for charting, and once Jane App releases more features, they will have MINDBODY beat when it comes to the price point.

Return on Investment

Booker

  • Notifications are a great way that communicates to the customer their appointment confirmation, and appointment reminders.
  • Increased employee / staff communication, they can now log in and see their schedules.
  • Entering credit card at time of appointment reservation is helpful to us since we have a cancellation policy and keeps the client accountable if they are a no show or cancel last minute.

MINDBODY

  • Reminder e-mails have resulted in increased usage of our facility. We increased by 7% over the past year.
  • Reminder e-mails have decreased the number of members we have because they get a monthly or weekly reminder that they paid or that they haven't been in for a workout. We decreased membership income by 3.5% over the last year.
  • Staff--It is much harder to keep employees happy with software constantly changing but the flip side of that is that if something is wrong with the software, it may actually get fixed.
