Calendly

Calendly is perfect for anyone scheduling appointments. We use this for sales appointments, but I see it fitting very well for service industries such as massage, hair, and even coaching. Calendly integrates with any and all calendars and gives you the freedom to set your schedule and let your clients pick their times. You can set up custom meeting times, names, descriptions etc. The range of possibilities is very wide and is extremely user-friendly.

Sabre

If you want to keep all of your choices in the same location, this is an excellent choice to make.Sabre is an excellent choice for serious travel agents who are prepared to devote a substantial amount of time to learning and becoming proficient with a booking platform. It provides agents with excellent functions such as the ability to find flight availability and pricing in real time, the capacity to hold flights for up to 72 hours, and the capability to book with a secure and well-known system. The primary issue is that it is geared toward the needs of agents; as a result, it is EXTREMELY challenging for a new user to pick up and become proficient with Sabre.

Pros

Calendly

  • Automation - With Calendly, everything is automated. I do not need to be informed before a meeting is scheduled with me, neither do I need to put calls across or send emails to cancel appointments. Calendly simply does the running around for me.
  • Reminders - In a business environment, it’s so easy for one to forget scheduled activity. However, Calendly ensures this doesn’t happen with me . Thanks to its notification reminders, which ensures I am always abreast with what I need to do next.
  • Re-scheduling - Calendly makes it so easy for myself or the other party to cancel scheduled appointments and postpone to a more convenient date.
  • No calls or emails needed by either party.

Sabre

  • Sabre Red Workspace is constantly evolving to keep up with technology trends. For example, it is now available for agents to download on their iPads so that they can work from anywhere.
  • Sabre Red Workspace offers a suite called Red Apps which has many categories of useful apps that can customize your experience (some at no extra charge) and help simplify workflows.
  • Sabre Red Workspace provides a comprehensive library of every format or command that an agent could ever need to do his or her job.

Cons

Calendly

  • I mentioned collaborative events. You can only set this up for people who are all users inside your account. So even if I have a partner who uses Calendly under his own company account, I don't think I can make a shared event with him.
  • Also mentioned already, this isn't a con of the product but a user issue: If you make openings, people will book. So you HAVE TO be disciplined and get everything on your calendar or someone will slip in a booking when you were planning to go to lunch, etc.

Sabre

  • Sabre does not have a well-working support system. Most calls require you to pay Sabre just for assistance within the system.
  • Sabre has a very large learning curve. It is very specific to itself - it is unlike other software and requires memorizing a lot of keystrokes.
  • Sabre is all in code and text-speak, so it is often difficult to understand.

    I've gladly paid for it for the past 4 years and don't foresee any reason to stop using it.

    Usability

    Calendly

    I gave Calendly an 8 because overall I think it is very much user friendly even for someone who has never used anything similar. The only issue I have had with usability is what I already stated about how the settings are in sub categories making some things difficult to find at first.

    Support Rating

    Calendly

    I only reached out to Support once but they were very prompt and easy to work with. I had some questions about setting up the follow-up emails for after people would do the interview. They were very helpful and gave assistance and we solved the issue very fast. I would definitely recommend.

    Sabre

    In my 14 years of using Sabre Red Workspace, their software support desk has always offered top-notch customer service and professionalism. Their representatives are extremely knowledgeable, and there has never been a time where they weren't able to quickly and accurately resolve our issues or answer our questions when we called, and we have never been charged for their assistance.

    Alternatives Considered

    Calendly

    Square Appointments I like it as well it just doesn't have the robust ability that Calendly does. Personally, if there were an ability to do that, Square Appointments could give Calendly a run for their money for their own customers. I don't see how they could move the compete with customers that aren't theirs. Not only do I personally use Calendly but I see it all the time in my business email. It is literally few seconds to schedule. When I see Calendly, I am relieved immediately. That is how easy it is to understand their platform.

    Sabre Red Workspaces has been the only product I've used so far for this kind of purpose as I have an approach to it when I was doing the audits with Sabre.

    Return on Investment

    Calendly

    • Positive: When people want to meet, I can simply send my Calendly link and it takes less than 5 seconds to do.
    • Positive: It integrates well with Zoom, which means that by default all my appointments include Zoom information for a remote call.

    Sabre

    • Overall for the business, it allows us to profit on international flights, where outside of Sabre we would not earn anything. We can earn percentages on certain international flights for booking or add commissions to base prices not posted elsewhere.
    • Sabre creates a barrier to entry for new agents and keeps agents from committing to the business.
    • Sabre gives base prices for agents that are significantly less than those found to a normal user, searching for a flight. This allows for sometimes very high added commissions (upwards of $500 per ticket) while also providing a lower cost to the customer, keeping them working with you in the future.
