Software Description:

MakePlans is a simple to use service for allowing your customers to book online.

The booking site makes it possible for customers to book appointments between your normal working hours or signup for events at specific times.

The customer receives a confirmation email or an SMS so they can easily add the booking to their calendar. A reminder is then sent before the booking starts.

Features for your staff:

  • Your staff will manage all appointments in our dynamic calendar which always shows real-time data of all appointments.

  • Availability and settings for how bookings are made and what services are offered are easily configured in the setup section.

  • Add extra users at no extra charge and see how employees perform by looking at stats and reports.

And much more:

We care about your brand and your data. We don't sell your data and we don't stand in your way by promoting our brand to your customers.

We believe in open standards and an integrated eco-system of the best tools for the job. Integrate with your favorite software or build yourself using our fully featured API.

Users of Acuity Scheduling have a powerful tool to manage appointments, and schedule clients assignments. Their customers, on the other side, can check availability in real time, choose date and time, or even revoke bookings.

Acuity Scheduling is an excellent solution for smaller businesses, which can send branded reminders, and receive online payments via PayPal or Stripe.
