Sometimes in business, the old ways are still the best. Shaking hands, good customer service and striking deals in person still and will always remain essential tools of the modern business. However, there are some tools which should be left in the past, and that includes old, outmoded booking platforms.
For many of us, our trusty appointment book or diary remains a vital part of the functioning of our business, but what if it could be improved? Technology has dramatically improved much of the process of modern business management, so why not your booking process?
Here at BookingHound, we’ve seen first-hand how beneficial an online booking system can be to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Detailed below are three ways BookingHound’s online booking system will help boost your business:
Being Available All Day, Every Day
Without an online booking system in place, booking for your customers happens in one of a few ways: either they book in person, over the phone or via email. Whichever of these methods your customer chooses to book, the process is a time consuming for them and they’re limited by your office opening hours.
BookingHound will allow you to take bookings 24/7, 365 days a year. This will enable your customers to book anytime anywhere hassle-free; with the option of still being able to take bookings over the phone, in person and via email.
Increase Revenue with Upselling
Any business will tell you that the key to growth is turning a customer buying one thing once into a customer buying multiple things often, which is why we built BookingHound with upselling support straight out of the box.
BookingHound allows you to offer additional items as upsells, for example, if your business offers an all-day event or activity you may want to offer the option for your customers to buy lunch. This would open another revenue stream for your business as well as simplify your customers needs.
Reduce Staff Workload
Traditional booking systems like telephone booking may get the job done to a degree, but they require a large amount of maintenance to keep accurate and up to date.
BookingHound will be taking bookings 24/7 as well as providing ‘Real Time Availability’ (just like the airlines booking systems) so you can free up your employees’ time by reducing their volume of admin tasks and letting them focus on more important things.
