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.

SimplyBook.me

SimplyBook.me is actually well suited for product/service based business which require one to one involvement with clients or prospects or if the users need support. SimplyBook.me comes really handy for booking the concerned person's time slot as per their availibility or open time, both parties can see their availibility and connect/sync accordingly.

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.

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.

SimplyBook.me

  • Schedule delay for beyond a day because there are times when I want to book beyond 3 or 4 days but I have to instead remember to come back before 1 day to set the reminder.
  • Confusing to pay for different features because many times I have found it unclear what features will be available to a paid user and what still will need to be paid for.
  • The interface is not easy, it takes time to adjust to things and find the options you find, navigation becomes relatively easier once you get the hang of the app.

    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.

    I did not have to contact their support too often (the software works just fine without any real issues) but the few times that I got in touch with them, they responded fast and the person I spoke with seemed to have a good grasp on what my issue was and what the solution would be.

    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.

    This software works far better for this specific industry when placing candidates in the medical field. The reason why is client information for companies and candidates is important to provide to each party. Calendly does an okay job at this but the integration could use work. EngageBay has a lot of other tools and isn't primarily a calendar tool but the calendar has basic features we used.

    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.

    • In around an hour or so, I have been able to solve my worries about getting paid, organizing my time, leaving me the time and energy to teach and to concentrate on promoting my business.
    • It's allowed me, in one stroke, to move forward my plans to add native-speaking language tutors to engage in follow-up courses.
