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.

  • 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:
