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

YouCanBook.Me

Youcanbook.me is great for small businesses or for self-employed professionals who need an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for handling large numbers of clients. It's great for eliminating inconvenient miscommunication and tedious back-to-back emails in order to set a proper date and/or meeting details. However, if you need a more sophisticated system that fits into your company's IT procedures and carries sensitive data, an in house solution would fit best.

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.

YouCanBook.Me

  • 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

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.

YouCanBook.Me

  • 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

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.

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.

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.

YouCanBook.Me

Youcanbook.me is a pretty unique service, but some others have come up since we started using it in 2015. There´s some competition like simply book or roomzilla, but he haven´t considered them because they aren't as cost-effective or simply haven't found a need to do it yet. Folk at youcanbookme have given us great user support and have many benefits for the educational sector, which make it hard for competition because we are pretty happy with their service :)

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.

YouCanBook.Me

  • It's helped our Professional Services Team immensely. Although we don't have numbers as far as an ROI, we use it daily across our whole team of 8 project managers.
  • We also use youcanbook.me to schedule in interviews with our 20+ researchers who are moderating sessions. Our admin team also uses youcanbook.me to allow our employees to schedule our weekly massages.
