Likelihood to Recommend

Booker

Because of the integration of so many critical features, I would not hesitate to recommend Booker to others. The few back end drawbacks are a small price to pay for the front end functionality.

It is perfect for small to medium size businesses. Large $10 million plus companies may be better suited for Magento because of their budgets and team size, but if you are just getting online, have a small or medium sized company and not unlimited budgets, than Shopify is the best choice for you.

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.

  • Ease of Use - Very user friendly. Anyone can pick it up within a couple days and know how to do almost everything.
  • Great Customer Service - The help is excellent. Also, they have a huge community where people are happy to help.
  • Ton of Add-Ons - You can find a ton of add-ons and modules to use that can be installed by you. They don't require developers.
  • Inexpensive - Because it's easy to use and doesn't require a ton of developer time, it's so much cheaper to run.

  • I'd love if they could lower the fees, but they're still better than Paypal.
  • I wish there were more free layout options.
  • I'd love a way to prevent certain items from being excluded from discount codes.

It gets the job done but is overly detailed and has many steps to do a simple task. Reports are continuously being archived and discontinued. As soon as I get used to one it is no longer available

All the functionality needed for a basic store is extremely easy to manage. Though some deeper customization requires coding it doesn't hide the code from you and provides an abundance of developer resources.

In terms of support I give Shopify a 9 out of 10 because they're always very friendly and thorough, and they personally can't solve my problem for me they always point me in the proper direction with the proper information I need to move forward

Alternatives Considered

Booker

SpaSoft was expensive and the database needs support maintenance often, plus the SQL component of the software was outdated. We received no communications from SpaSoft on upgrades. Motionsoft was a property installed server based product that never worked for us. FitLinxx was a great product, but the technology was behind and it was not meant to operate a cluster of sites.

Shopify performs a great marketing influence by having ads and different kinds of branding on various social media. Also, their utilities promotion creates a great impact on the people's mind, and after executing action on the platform, in my experience I liked it how everything was set up from a user point of view.
