    Being able to manage my clientes, invoices as well as my favorite feature of selling my photography online.

    Pros

    Absolutely the only way I will keep my appointments lined up! The best feature that I enjoy is selling my photography online. This has helped my company retain and grow tremendously throughout the last two years.

    Cons

    When I first started using book steam I couldn't access it from my phone. As of now I am able to have everything from my desktop on my mobile devices through my business.

    Pros

    The product had a great visual layout and was somewhat easy to navigate. Only using a trial version, I did not get the full experience.

    Cons

    I had a hard time understanding where to find certain aspects and items on the application. Again, the trial version may be limiting access.

    BookSteam is the best appointment scheduling tool I found available in the market so far.

    Pros

    It works for me! I love it because it is very user friendly. The interface itself serves as your guide to navigate through it.

    Cons

    It took long to set up. I am not so sure if it's just me, my computer, the connection or the software.

    BookSteam is a very useful and versatile appointment scheduling software.

    Pros

    The software has a slick and easy to use interface, very easy to navigate. Reports are also generated automatically so it is easy to track attendance.

    Cons

    The first time you set it up is a bit confusing and it took long but once done, it worked perfectly fine.

    Good range of features and the ability to issue class packages for classes is great. The front end is responsive and simple yet good design.

    Cons

    Unable to customsise email templates. I switched to booksteam from acuity because I wanted my clients to be able to book recurring appointments but most of my clients have complained that their recurring appointments don't usually work.

    Cons

    The start up process may take some time to learn. With so many feature it's understandable. Short term pain for long term gain which will save you many hours and keep you organized. Give it a try!

    Booksteam is the BEST scheduling software out there! We tried two others but third time's a charm.

    Booksteam completely streamlined our old-school manual signup process and is light years ahead of the competition (SignUpGenius in particular). We are now able to have customers sort classes by location/practitioner/modality and class instructors are issued tablets to mark who attended (and didn't). This saves us SO many hours of work each week, it's great!

    Pros

    Booksteam is so versatile - customers can search by location, practitioner, class type, etc. And the reports it generates are very helpful in terms of tracking attendance, no-shows, and seeing trends develop over time. Also, I have to give a shout-out to customer support which is second to none. We had a LOT of questions when setting up the system, and I can honestly say there was not a single time they did not reply quickly and concisely (usually within a 2-hour window; sometimes as quickly as 5 minutes). This is a HUGE step up from the customer support at the two other scheduling services we tried.

    Cons

    I would just say that the setup process (particularly for multiple practitioners across several locations) takes a loooooong time. But I think it would with any software that has as many capabilities as this one. Once the setup is done, though, the hours it will save you in the future make it all worthwhile!

    Saves me time, gives me a wide range of marketing options and helps me manage my clients and records

    Pros

    There is a lot of software that does appointment booking or class booking and a few that do both, but when I looked at the ones that do both something always didn't work the way I needed it to... Until I found Booksteam. The versatility and range of options have really allowed me to set everything up just as I need it and the cost is lower than most of the competition too.
    I've had to contact support a few times and they've always been super helpful and quick to respond. They've also be receptive to my development suggestions.
    Overall I've been very happy that I went with Booksteam.

    Cons

    Sometimes I find myself a bit confused by all the options, but I guess that's the price of having such great adaptability, and since the support is so good, this isn't really a problem.

    Pros

    I love how easy it it to set up and for my clients to use. Straightforward and simple. Really appreciate the MailChimp syncing, too for occasional newsletters.

    Cons

    Wish there were more color theme options or patterns to spruce it up a little while remaining basic and simple to navigate.

    Their software is great! It's easy to use and has really helped us streamline our scheduling. And you cant beat their customer service. We accidentally erased one of our staff members and all her appointments. After sending a support request they got back to me almost immediately and were able to recover all the info we lost. Saved me a weeks worth of work tracking down all the appointments. I cant thank you guys enough!! Long live Booksteam!!!!

    Pros

    Easy to use. Makes it very easy to keep track of all our employees and their appointments.

    Patients are expressing difficulty accessing the system if they have forgotten their password. Even when they follow the instructions to obtaining their password, they are advised that their email address is already in the system.

    As an Esthetician, I have found Booksteam to offer an extremely well priced book system. It's relatively easy to figure out although it might take a few tries to figure out the inner workings. It doesn't have everything that I was hoping for but it's absolutely adequate for business owners on a budget. Clients have sometimes complained about having to insert their credit card details everytime they book but, you can reassure them that their info is never saved and actually provides protection. I use Booksteam alongside Weebly.
