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.

If you work in an office I would imagine having some sort of a scheduling software is an absolute must. It will save you a ton of hassle and a lot of pointless emails. So if you are looking for one, I can recommend this quite easily. It's simple and it works well. I also think the pricing is very competitive even when compared to more established brands. However if you don't need or have a lot of meetings then I think you can avoid this one.

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.

  • It manages my time for me through the calendar element.

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.

  • You should be able to ad text in some of the booking "moments". This way you could explain to your customer's that they must choose PayPal or another payment way even if they don't have an account.
  • Maybe simplybook.me should have a direct payment with card option. Skipping all the payU or PayPal options. It would be more friendly for customers as this is the way it works for them in other online stores such as Amazon or eBay.

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

Usability

Calendly

Calendly 8.3
Based on 3 answers
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.

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.

Actually before I find SimplyBook.me I never knew of any online booking system in Taiwan, at last I found this advertisement and after using it for free for 14 days I decide to buy it. The most important reason I bought it because there is a Traditional language that can be selected. Of course, we can set our common language as well, and this platform also supports multilanguage, too.

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.

SimplyBook.me

  • 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.
