Online booking solution FlexBooker announces the details of their new fully automated wait list system. This feature is available to anyone using the FlexBooker booking platform.
The wait list system can work with both free and paid bookings. As soon as space opens up for a class, trip, or other event, the system will send an SMS text message to the first person on the wait list. That space will then be held for them for 10 minutes, and they have the option of automatically booking that time by simply replying to the message. If they don’t take the space, then the system will move on to the next person on the list.
For paid bookings, FlexBooker authorizes the customers’ credit card as soon as they place themselves on the wait list, using the booking widget. If space opens up, and they reply to the text message to take the booking, they are charged. The entire process is efficient and seamless. Payments for appointments can be managed directly from FlexBooker, and there is no additional fee to set up or manage credit card payments.
“FlexBooker works in the background to keep your events full. With our automated wait list system, this works even in the event of cancellations,” notes Andrew Ford, Product Director with FlexBooker. “Our goal is to make it easy for you to keep your schedule filled, and easy for your customers to schedule, modify, and cancel appointments.”
FlexBooker can be accessed from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. The booking widget can be installed on a website in seconds, and adapts the layout to the type of device the customer is visiting from, further simplifying the booking experience.
FlexBooker is reinventing the way customers make appointments at businesses in the service sector. Built on the idea that accepting online bookings should be as painless as possible, FlexBooker is designed to fit seamlessly into existing business practices by using ubiquitous technologies, such as email and SMS, to drive customer engagement. This means that customers can be up and running accepting online bookings in less than 15 minutes, as opposed to the industry norm of hours or even days. FlexBooker customers span a wide range of industries, from photographers to personal trainers. More information can be found at http://www.flexbooker.com.
