Likelihood to Recommend

Calendly

Calendly is great for a team on a tight budget (or no budget) that needs to be able to schedule similar meetings quickly and avoid emailing back and forth to schedule. It wouldn't be well suited for someone needing to schedule meetings with various lengths of time and at different locations because the admin user would most likely need to consider travel and all topics they were planning to cover to more appropriately choose a time that works for them. It's better for people scheduling screen shares or phone calls.

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

Calendly

  • They have a very clean and simple interface for the admin user as well as the person scheduling a time.
  • You can customize how the scheduler determines open times. The customization is very well thought out and very flexible.
  • If you upgrade to the paid version, you can set up several different meeting types which would be very valuable for teams with multiple users needing to schedule varying sessions.

  • It simplifies the reservation process by sending you and your clients automatic email messages to confirm, reschedule or cancelling a requested appointment, activity or event.

Alternatives Considered

Calendly

Calendly was easier to get in and setup than acuity. While acuity is probably excellent, it did involve more set up when we initially tested it out. The free version of Calendly seems to be a complete product without bringing to light that one hasn't subscribed yet. Actuity is available free for 1 year if you sign up through SquareSpace I've noticed.

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

Calendly

  • We've reduced the number of folks that we lose during the scheduling process.
  • We find that when someone books an appointment through Calendly that they are serious and ready to take a step forward. (lead quality is higher)
  • It seems to give us added credibility, "you can speak to a real human" type of thing.

YouCanBook.Me

  • YouCanBook.Me has had a huge positive impact on our ability to convert leads from conferences and other recruiting events. It makes it so easy for people to sign up for follow up calls, so we are able to keep in touch with the people we meet, continue the conversation, and direct them to good next steps.
