Launch 27 takes many functions from many platforms and combines them into one.

Pros: The thing I like the most is that this software is meant for specific industries, so it has the built-in functions tailored for those industries. And, if the software is missing something and the community requests it, then there is a clear "feature request" process that the company follows.

When using the Launch 27 platform, I can imagine how many other spreadsheets and tools I would need to tie together to make business operations flow the same if I were to not be using Launch 27. It would be a lot. Launch 27 has the CRM, payment processor, scheduling, booking, etc. all in one platform which really helps save a lot of time. It also helps with the training and transition of new managers who may be using the platform as well. Although learning the ins and outs of Launch 27 to it's fullest extent can definitely take a long time and there is a lot of trial and error, I am confident that it takes less time than it would to learn the sum of a bunch of separate platforms.

Cons: Broadly speaking, this is how I would describe what I like the least. From the top level, many companies do run their operations generally in a similar fashion. However, once you get down to more specifics, a lot of businesses run things differently. When building functions, Launch 27 has to choose which route to go, what to focus more on, what features to implement first, etc. So, sometimes the functions that would work best for my business may not come soon because the functions of other businesses are in higher demand. I would absolutely love to have Launch 27 be the one and only platform I use to manage all of the daily operations, and I do use it for 90%+ of operations, but there are still some area's where I have to resort to google docs and 3rd party apps to handle certain features. And note: the features I am talking about are related directly to things that Launch 27 could have implemented into the system (I'm not talking about things like advertising or email campaigns, etc.). For example, I do still calculate payroll on excel sheets because Launch27 does not calculate pay amounts in the same way and level of detail that we have set up as a company. The hourly and percentage functions are limited, and they don't have the ability to split pay between two people when they are both on percentage pay and cleaning the same home. For that reason alone, I run payroll on a spreadsheet.

Lastly, employees always seem to have problems with the app.*hit text limit*

Overall: Time savings, efficiency, having everything in a central location but also cloud based so I can access anywhere. I am able to automate so many tasks, which makes it so that I can spend more time working on growth, or just having more free time in general.

Launch27 software is absoutely integral to my day to day business operations.

Pros: Launch27 is pretty simply to use. I picked it up quickly by just navigating around the menus. For the more advanced options, there is a help section with several clearly documented help articles.

While it's easy to use, it's not short on features. I have yet to take advantage of every tool available within the software and still, I'm able to seamlessly and easily integrate the software into a nice looking website where customers and book and manage appointments online, schedule my teams, speak with customers, charge customers, gather feedback from customers, and send reminders to teams, staff and customers. All of the emails are on autopilot except for a couple. These are all essential functions and save me a ton of time but that's only a portion of the features offered - there's a lot more.

It's all web based and can be accessed form any device. Because I'm often on the go, 90% of this stuff I do from my iPhone which is freaking amazing. I can run the day to day of my business from my phone from anywhere using Launch27.

The development team is always updating the software as well. The often poll users to find out what we need in order to prioritize their upgrades. What more could you ask for?

Cons: There are a few quirks and oddities within the mobile site but nothing a little finger finesse can't get around. There are a few subtle scheduling things that I wish were a little more customizable but they are really specific to my business and I understand that. Because of the awesome development team, it's totally possible those things can be added in the future. The software is less than 3 years old (I think), after all.

Overall: It is nothing less than essential to my business. It saves me lots of time, helps me stay organized, helps me communicate in an efficient and professional manner with customers and employees and it's all around the engine to our operations.

Pros: I don't have time to list them all go check them out

Cons: Still developing. It is not perfect. You have to accept it is not perfect and sometimes things you expect and think are obvious are missing but they usually have a work around and if it serious will make changes. Also have to be willing to adjust systems, procedures, pricing to interface with Launch platform. It may seen like a big deal in the beginning but your current systems and prices are not really as secret or special as you think. Embrace Launch and bend to it for best results! Trying to make this futuristic software work with your archaic cleaning business practices would be aggravating. Free your mind from your old thinking. Grow and let Launch be your guide.

Overall: Launch 27 is the best software for a residential cleaning company bar none. It really is ahead of its time. I have researched every cleaning related software on the market and chose Launch because this software is awesome. It revolutionized our business. We did make a few modifications to our systems and procedures to align with Launch but the benefits have been outstanding. I feel like my business is on auto-pilot rather than destined to crash if I am not at the wheel 24/7. Plus I have spoken to top officials at Launch regarding a few issues we had. These guys made changes to the software to accommodate our concerns. Who does that? Plus, we have been Beta-Test partners on new features we specifically asked for (yes, these guys really do new updates and improvements all the time). We have been with them for a year and there have been over a dozen improvements and new features. Highly, highly recommend to new solo operators or for large established businesses. The solo operator will start their business on a solid foundation fostering growth. The large business will save a zillion by automating and streamlining their business practices while improving your service level because you and I know your office staff is not following up on every opportunity or asking every happy customer for a review. I don't care if you believe this review or not but it is all true. I don't work for launch or get any inducement to post this review. Its just the right thing to do. I have over a decade experience operating a house cleaning business and Launch is another level. The best is it is so low priced, unlimited cleaners (we have 20), online booking, gift cards, review monitoring is a steal. I think they know it is a deal but have to market to newbie cleaners who think $$$ month is expensive. Look newbie, spend the hundred a month and be thankful or trip over the pennies and miss the dollars. I would use it for $$$ month which incidentally is what I pay now for my famous but clearly inferior software Launch is replacing. I can't cancel because of a year contract. Launch has no contract. That says it all. Launch customers stay because the product and people are awesome not because of shady year contracts. So due your own due diligence and research every product on the market like I did. If you know what to look for you will end up right back here. Look man, Launch is what you need - GET IT!

Pros: Tech support! If you have any questions, no matter how silly they may seem, support is there for you. If you have a highly technical question about their API or anything else techy, you'll get a clear answer.

The software works exactly as intended (and always has since day one), but there are times when something might be a little confusing or a new feature might not work as I originally thought it would. In all of my years using the service there hasn't been one time where I reached out for help that I didn't receive it.

Cons: If I had to choose a con, I would say it's that they update the software too much. Meaning, they're constantly evolving and adding new (helpful) features. I use very few of them so at times I can find it to be a bit much, but honestly that's not really a bad thing because they're listening to their users and they're adding and updating features based on user feedback rather than feedback from a board of directors or shareholders.

Overall: Hands free scheduling, easy client communication, and easy invoicing. That's all I need and that's exactly what Launch 27 offers.

Overall software does the job. I don't dislike the software however I'm not head over heels either.

Pros: I like the fact that it gives even the smallest of businesses the opportunity to run like a bigger business. It looks very professional to have a website, offer online booking, have the ability to charge your clients and send them confirmations and receipts. Even as a one person cleaner.

Cons: The thing I like lease is the inability to customize certain things. Like there's only one company the system sends text messages through. And Twilio doesn't offer much as far as phone service for businesses. They should partner with a company that businesses can actually use for their phone service. Also the software should have an app that we all have free access to. So we can go on our phones and not have to go to the website to sign in. When I want to charge a client right after a service it's annoying to have to go through Safari on my phone. And the interface could be simpler. Much simpler and self explanatory. These changes will show that the company really is thinking about how we run our business outside of the software.

Overall: Having a professional face to my business and being able to charge clients safely and efficiently. Also offering online booking so clients won't call me directly.

Pros: Launch27 is powerful enough that it does most of the heavy lifting of my scheduling, booking, charging and communicating however not bloated to the point where there is a ton of useless functionality. The Zapier integration makes it possible to extend this functionality where needed and the devs are always making improvements.

Cons: Sometimes you can feel the growing pains of the software. While the growth is GOOD, you can feel that older design decisions are holding it back from being as great as it could be. More detailed reporting would also be nice, but the ability to export raw data means anyone with some Excel knowledge can generate their own reports, albiet not automatically. There is also a huge jump in price between different tiers of the product, but arguably this is justified with the features it provides and the stage your business will be at when you are ready to make use of them.

Overall: Overall it significantly reduced the efforts to start my business and has grown alongside the business. The automatic features such as emailing, recurring bookings and being able to charge customers from within the software are amazing.

Pros: I love how beautiful it made the booking form look with very customizable features. The form even supports Stripe which accepts payments. It even can put a charge on hold which is very very useful for this industry.

Cons: The software is full of features, but not every corner is polished. The backend is not as pretty as the front end (example: the staff availability calendar) They are working on a lot of useful things such as having different service to have different availabilities but I hope they'd speed up the working process.

Overall: I was able to create a very beautiful booking system easily. I was able to accept different forms of payments with this software and the price was very reasonable. They even offer white label app for my company with a decent price. They are very helpful, and this is the best booking system i've seen so far.

Steep Learning Curve, but excellent documentation. Haven't had a major problem with it.

Pros: I like the integration piece. Syncing to 3rd party software is very important and integral to our efficiency. The scheduler feature is new and very handy, also like the ability to run promo codes/gift cards.

Cons: I do not like that you can't set a customer to have daily service, or a specific set of dates. If I have one customer that wants mon/wed/fri cleanings that are identical, i have to make 3 different re-occurring cleanings and manage those. There should be an option to flag a customer as a commercial account and then manually set the days of the week that the cleanings occur.

I do no like that on the scheduler there is no 'approve all' to make them all visible on my google calendar(which my employees use) Currently they can't see whats on the schedule for the next week until the previous clean has been completed. I can manually go in to EACH booking (which is a 30 minute exercise) each month to force them to be scheduled and appear on the calendar.

Overall: Efficiency, mobility, customer support, integration into 3rd party

Pros: I like the ease of setting it all up to fit my business needs and how it runs on it's own after that with precision. My clients can book and receive a confirmation and then have their own special login to manage their future book, while also receiving alerts from us to keep them alert that we are coming.

Cons: I have been using this software for 2 years and I can't say that I have any cons. They are always enhancing with features that make my customers experience 5 star.

Overall: Customers love their experience before ever speaking to us

Pros: pretty easy to use on a regular basis... calendar option to see full month and view by clicking day is very helpful

Cons: Payment options are restricted and don't cover all the options available. I am constantly answering to payment questions since Direct Bank Deposite is not an option to select from.

Please add this option so customers can have this as a viable option.

Pros: Online prices and bookings are very helpful also the templates that are available are nicely designed and have good navigation.

Cons: Cannot get paid online, the mobile version is expensive, cannot properly set it up in two languages. To be honest I had the trial version of the mobile and did not get how it works. I'm busy trying to run a maid company and 2 weeks don't cut it to test you need to put a lot of data to check how it all works. If I could use a testing period on my day to day operations it would be better to understand how everything falls into place. You guys did a job signing us over but poorly in helping us to upgrade. We pay a bunch of other software to get things done.

Pros: Provides excellent communication taking our business to the next level, without having to invest in costly staff, which would be required to achieve the same effect. Provided our Company with an image of a successful established business right from the initial start up.

Cons: I find some of the setup a little restrictive. Unable to book in bespoke packages easily, catering for commercial clients. My main issue is customers being able to complete a booking, edit a booking, or cancel a booking without confirmation from the business. I believe they should technically be requests which can then be confirmed. There is no daily frequency option for bookings.

Pros: Easy for people who are not familiar with computers. You get support quickly. I like how the back end is easier to make appointment.

Cons: I like everything. But, some times the different sections in the booking page change by it self. Example under frequency I have onetime, weekly, biweekly, monthly when I went to my book page one day it changed to only weekly. I always check my booking page now.

Overall: Easy booking, payment, easy rescheduling. Customers reschedule and book by themselves. I like how it show the duration of cleaning.

Pros: Frequent updates, almost weekly to ensure platform and services run as smooth as possible. Have been using for business for over 2 years and quality has only improved.

Cons: There reports/analytics part is very limited on the basic plan. The filters to see reports by month, year, or by comparison aren't available, therefore, you need to access Stripe if you want additional data which is often cumbersome.

Overall: Helps run day to day work scheduling and activities.

Launch27 is the only reason I can run my service business without a full-time office staff. Love it.

Pros: The API and the online booking form are my two favorite features. I also like the automated appointment reminders to staff and clients, the customer self-service portal, the scheduling assistant, the integration with Stripe, and the integration with Zapier.

Cons: The API authentication method and the API documentation. The online booking form could have more customization options.

Overall: This software saves me time which allows me to focus on growing my business instead of operating it. If you have multiple clients and/or multiple field employees in your service business, this software will save you time.

Pros: On line booking, auto emails to customers, integrations, really everything they do is pretty great! I also like that they are always looking to improve, add value and make the company better!

Cons: The customer service. Don't get me wrong, the online people are AWESOME, that being said, typing out every question takes 3x as long than if I could just call someone. I also feel like they should offer an on boarding person to walk you through setting it up and learning the system. There is still a TON I don't use (stripe for instance) because I don't know how. My first few weeks were super frustrating and I almost cancelled because my VA and I couldn't get some basic functions to work correctly.

Pros: I have a cleaning business and without this software I'm absolutely sure my monthly revenue would decrease significantly. It makes running the backend of the business much easier than it would be without it. Customer service is extremely responsive. I've even had them respond in the middle of the night to an issue I was having.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve, but they provide a lot of helpful how to instructional guides. I think there's probably a learning curve with any product like this that you'd use. I eventually got the hang of it and now everything is fairly intuitive.

Overall: This software increased monthly revenue by increasing the efficiency of my business operations.

Pros: I love the automatic sms & email reminders to customers & teams. Online booking is also gold.

It has helped run our business from day 1. Charging customers,etc...all in one package!

Cons: L27 does need to work on their scheduling system. Scheduling staff for a job is almost like tetris.

Especially with other companies coming up with an "auto scheduler",etc..L27 needs to hop on that to reduce the amount of time spent on scheduling

Overall: Freed up more time. Allows for online bookings of customers even when staff isn't there to answer calls

Pros: I love how easy it is to use for my employees and clients. Everything is very straightforward and love all the features.

Cons: tipping system. I wish it was easier for clients to tip AFTER a job. Like for example once the cleaning is complete and the customer receives there rating follow up email and when they press "Happy" and it takes them to the next window and from there they have the ability to add comments AND tips. Not a big deal though

Comments: I give full credit to Launch27 for helping me business hit high revenue in our first year. It makes the booking so easy for customers which makes them more likely to pick us, and it lets me see exactly what our schedule is like at a glance.

Pros: Very robust platform. Great integration of online booking form, scheduling, and payments. Good analytics for tracking sales. Provides an easy way for customers to communicate, which is important for good service.

Cons: Some features could be improved. Top tier plan is quite expensive compared to the entry and middle ones.

Pros: I like that it has the ability to include price parameters to add half bathrooms. They have great email templates, such as the Rate your service to give you an idea of how a client feels about the service provided before they write a review on Yelp. The other features I like includes: ability to assign teams, keep record of how much a staff member gets paid, the overall reports are great too. Since I just started using them, I still have much to learn, but this is what I like so far.

Cons: Their email templates a bit clunky and outdated. For example, you will need an URL for each image you add to the templates. I also do not like that they don't separate services into packages or subscriptions and thus not having the ability to charge for a package all at once. Instead, you can charge service by service at the end of the cleaning. I see the advantage of it, but I wish it gave me the option to choose when and how to charge my clients. I think that Booking Spots can be easier to format.

Launch27 is AMAZING and worth every dollar!

It is a great way to keep good communication with my clients and with my employees. I also like that you added the checklist, pictures, and notes. I love that when I have any questions you provide a person using your chat on the website that can help right away.

Cons: I don't like it that every time I am updating the schedule so many tabs open. I also don't like when I am doing the timesheet I use the Time Tracking Log and when I download the excel sheet the colors for check in/out add the date on the total. I have to delete each date so I can use a formula to add the total time for travel and work hours and miles. That is annoying since I have a lot fo employees and I am planning to hire more. I also wish there was a location that only my team leads and myself can see the garage & alarm codes for security reasons.

I've been using Launch27 for a few years now and I consider it necessary to run my business.

Pros: Nice and clean looking online booking form, easily scheduling staff, logins for staff to control their own schedules, automatic credit card holds and charges. I could go on and on but these stand out to me the most.

Cons: The monthly fee has gotten a little crazy in my experience and increase what seems to be great frequency.

Always prompt and helpful

Pros: Anytime we contact support with an issue one of the customer rep is there to help us fix it immediately. Majority of the time it is user error and she still makes not feel dumb for this.

Cons: There is only a one rep, wish there was more ad hoc reporting and exports available. Other than that nothing really.

Pros: Easy to use and read. It looks modern and easily blends in with my current website. I like the icons and the way it looks. Always get compliments.

Cons: It is only designed for using the ap for everything. For companies that are using a different software for scheduling and so forth it is horrible. Because we have to remember to log in and cancel the information or it sends the customers emails that are no longer valid.

I need it to be more compatible with out using all of the other services. Or have it beable o link to other software for scheduling.

Overall: It allows my customers to access and purchase services without needing to pay for man power to answer the phones or make mistakes in what services they want.

Launch27 is great for local services!

Pros: We no longer have to send manual invoices for each job but invoices are sent automatically and cards are charged the moment we complete the work. Auto scheduling is great too.

Cons: Not a lot of customization possible... I'd like to use this for commercial projects too but it doesn't have the capability. The app our staff use in the field could be improved by letting us input checklists for each work order that they check off as they complete the job.

For someone that is not techie it was easy to install L27 and get it up running.

Cons: There really is not much L27 is missing. It handles all the major problems; booking, scheduling, managing teams, credit card processing, paying teams and the list goes on. The email customization is better than most but still needs some work.

Very easy to use. I don't have a headache to schedule an appointment, to follow the payments, etc.

Cons: I really don't have a whole lot of complaints. Reporting could be improved, other than that there is not a whole lot I would change. As I said earlier they continue to improve the software. The more advanced versions are fairly expensive, however I am on one of the basic plans and plan to move up when needed.

It allows customers to book online and for me to schedule over the phone. Send automatic reminder and quality surveys. Can't go wrong with this product!

Cons: The schedule could have a better interface or visual if running multiple teams. As a solo owner operator of is very straight forward now but could be an issue as the scaling begins to happen.

Overall: Our company appears bigger than it is.

Mostly great, it does everything I need it to do.

Comments: I use Launch 27 for my maid business. It's fantastic, and customers love it!

The admin interface is very easy to use and understand. Creating new bookings, charging customers, sending payments, and exporting customer data (email addresses, name, phone number, etc.) is a SNAP!

All credit card information is fully secure and encrypted, which is a huge bonus for customers.

My favorite thing about L27 is the customer login portal. It allows customers to self-serve and update their own information. If they want to change a booking time, no problem... they can login and take care of that. If they want to update their CC information, or schedule a new booking themselves, they can do all of this online.

This is a huge bonus for the customer, as it's a time saver. It's a HUGE bonus for my business as well, as it reduces phone calls and the overhead that comes with customer service.

The customer service for L27 itself is great. They are very quick to respond to concerns, and are always updating the software. They are very aware that their software is a lifeline for local businesses, and as such, they schedule updates and downtime in the middle of the night to avoid impacting customers.

All in all, I would recommend Launch27 to anyone with a local business. If I start another local business, I will definitely use Launch27 to power it.

I'm so glad that I decided to purchase this software when I launched my cleaning business.

Should be a downloaded printed handbook we could give to our new employees to help walk them through logging in each day, etc.

Comments: I have been using L27 for the last 2 years and it really is the complete package. I would go as far as to say that the success of my cleaning business has relied on the fluid functioning of L27 and it has not let me down.

When I started using L27 it had all the essentials that you might need. A handy booking form (easily integrated in to your site), ways of setting up teams (staff), an easy way to view one off/recurring bookings, create them, send them to teams etc. Then over the last 6 months or so the team at L27 clearly decided to start ramping up the features and every couple of weeks they are making new improvements and adding excellent new features. Wherever its a custom booking form, options to add team availability, or simply little tweaks to make the whole program a little easier to use. They listen to user feedback and are implementing changes promptly.

In general, the only fault I personally have found is every now and then I lose connection and my L27 account appears to go down for 5-30 minutes. This has only happened a few times and only for short periods of time, but it is the only real negative that I can think of. To be honest, this could even be something with the Australian ISP so I wouldn't read too much in to it.

We have glitches with some clients not getting texts even though they r signed up for reminders and ph # is correct. I would love it if system help was more staightforward i dont like how it is barebones. Many features dont seem to have an explaination. Ie what is the point of marking a job complete as the system does it automatically. I wish once a job was marked complete that it sent a text/email to client to inform them their cleaning is done and the yotal cost is x.

Comments: Ive used them for about 9 months now, they have great features that i cant live without (online giftcards, online bookings, customer reminders, customer portal, open API)

Im happy with the software, there some features that need to be added to make the software a complete solution:

ability to integrate with more payment gateways: right now is limited to stripe and paypal.

ability to integrate with a CRM is missing (infusionsoft, Salesforce, etc)

the calendar view got a recent update and is great but needs improvement still.

a route optimizer should be added to the calendar, also need to have more options to the recurring jobs: right now your options are every 4 weeks, every 3 weeks, every 2 weeks.

need to add "day of the month" or "day of the week" "monthly" on the last day (could be any chosen day) of the month ie: service on the last Tuesday of every month, on the first Monday of the month, etc. heres a great example: http://recurring-select-demo.herokuapp.com/

overall im very happy with them, their customer service is really top notch, when you call they answer, when you email they reply fast. I highly recommend this company if you want ot increase your bookings.

Functional but somewhat limited and confusing at times.

Pros: Fairly simple to use, easy to navigate and most functions are understandable. And here is filler text.

Cons: So much could be improved. Active bookings should not include completed bookings, recurring appointments should be on the schedule months out to prevent overlooking or rebooking service, all the emails have a generic 555 number instead of {{Main Number}}. I would like to be notified if clients don't respond to feedback requests. I want to see bookings by frequency, month of service and with information I want or need to see. I want to be able to resort or set the default view. I can't document notes on client interactions to keep up with last call dates et cetera.

Efficient, reliable and most of all convenient!

Comments: We depend on Launch 27 Software to run our cleaning business. Being able to have one interface to manage appointments, client profiles, client payments and also team payments has definitely made our day to day operations so easy! Our teams, clients and administration have access to the portal, each have access to the pertinent information needed. For example, our clients are able to re-schedule and or cancel their appointment through their portal. Our teams, are able to view the schedule ahead of time and receive rating emails from the clients they have serviced. This tool has helped with the communication, as the teams get to see exactly what the client said about their service quality.

Their customer service is up to par with our expectations. Whenever we have an issue, question or suggestions, the L27 staff has always been prompt to response. They have also catered to our specific needs and we feel confident that any if any issue should arise, it will be handled timely.

Overall the ease of use and the tools available continues to warrant the decision made to use L27 as our platform for our business software.

Pros: It can make a small company look extremely professional. When people come to my company they are surprised to see one man running it all.

Cons: No ability to group employees as one team. Every time you book a cleaning and want to send the teams a schedule you have to send them to both instead of just "team1"

Comments: I have been using L27 for the past 7 months and I couldn't be more happy. My business did an incredible changed after I started using this software.

It automatizes all the process since the client books an order, to the reception of the email allowing you to make notes just visible to the cleaning team, adjust price etc...

The cleaning team always gets the information in their cellphone and one of the best things is the automatically payment you can do to your through the platform. You can also see the monthly sales, filter your calendar by day, week or monthly.

It has another extra feature (among several) that allows you to customize the booking form, and integrates some other features that makes customer service really smooth.

It also integrates with other apps which is very useful and the customer service is very fast, attentive and impressive. They are always there for you in the chat that is integrated .

I couldn't be more happy!

Pros: Customization and customer support

Cons: None

Overall: We have recently switched from Appointment Plus to Launch27.

This is our 4th online scheduling system for the previous 11 years and, to be honest, it's the best.

Here are few of our favorite features:

- 3 stand-alone mobile apps for field workers, administrators & customers (the apps are very comprehensive in functions)

- Ability to have multiple locations with different pricing rules

- Stripe integration (now we can save on credit card processing fees, our previous rate was 4% vs. 2.9% with Stripe)

- Built-in quoter (you can provide instant quotes)

If your company is service business - look no further then Launch27!

Comments: Great software for managing multiple offsite contractors and a range of customers.

All up this is a great piece of software and the support team is exceptional!

I couldn't run my business with out Launch27.

Pros

- simple to manage multiple teams

- integrates really easily with Stripe for processing payments

- Built in customer login allowing customers to manage their own bookings

- Built in contractor login allowing a simple interface for contractors to manage their bookings & schedules

- Web based so fully functional on all devices, which is super handy when I have to trouble shoot some logistics and can do everything on my mobile!!

- A simply amazing customer support experience

- Rapidly developing and improving the software with new features released almost weekly

Cons

- not globally compatible yet. Very USA centric.

- Still missing some significant features however I believe these are in the development pipeline

I would still be hating life working in a tiny cubicle at a job I hate if it weren't for Launch27

Comments: I'm not even exaggerating, if it weren't for Launch27 I would not be running my own cleaning business right now. Everything about Launch27 is amazing - super easy to use interface (but not restrictively simplistic), easy integration, tons of customisation, a dev team that is highly responsive to feedback, a well-trained support team who go above and beyond... I could go on for days and I haven't even mentioned a single feature!

I think the reason L27 is so successful is because it's run by people who own local service businesses themselves, so they really know what features are needed and how to increase sales. The discounts codes and customer referral codes almost guarantee you'll get sales, not to mention the recent game-changing integration with CartHook.

Anyway I'm rambling and dragging on. There's a 30 day free trial last I checked - try it for yourself and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

Comments: I have been using Launch27 (L27) in my business for about year now and I have been extremely pleased with the results. L27 has given our customers the ease and convenience of booking service online while at the same time reducing the work load of my office staff. Coming from a software development background, I can really appreciate the work that goes into creating a product like this as it offers a great deal of functions and possibilities for customization.

Despite these perks, the thing that I appreciate the most about the service is the great support! I feel that the company owners listen to the feedback and of their customers and rely on that feedback when making enhancements / improvements. In the year that we have been using the software, I can see numerous areas where our feedback and that of others in our industry have directly shaped the product. That to me is L27's greatest strength.

Comments: Launch27 has completely changed my day to day for the better! Appointment setting use to be a tedious and extremely time consuming part of my business. With Launch27 we're able to plug new clients in the system either by booking them ourselves or having them fill out their nifty booking form on our site. Once they're in the system I can automate recurring visits, the teams that service them, and the clients can even manage their accounts (bookings, payment, etc) as well saving us tons of time and money. The best part, when I run in to any issues their awesome customer service team is a quick chat message away! They're always friendly and prompt, as a service provider myself I know how far a great customer service experience can take you and Launch 27 has definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm very grateful for this product and can't say enough about it!

This simplifies our jobs and makes sure we can't miss important info.

Pros: I really like the front end booking page that the customers use. It is a great design. And the email follow ups are nicely designed for you.

Cons: I am little more fond of the back end of housecall pro. I used it before switching to Launch 27. They had a little better back end features for less price, but the front end design was horrible.

Overall: Helps me with booking and payroll. Great addition. Any legitimate cleaning company should use this software.

Comments: We here at Bubble Bee Maids are beyond grateful for finding this wonderful company! Our back office software as well as booking online for customers is so simple and quick that all of our clients compliment our website and it's process. The simplicity of entering client info as well as charging clients has been effortless from day 1. We were intimidated by creating an online booking system at first, but once we began using this software we realized that it's design has made it easy for anyone to use. The customer service has been immpecable! Any questions that we have had, we simply message through a live chat and instantly get help and guidance with anything needed. We highly recommend this software company to anyone that wants a simple yet professional and efficient website. We thank you very much!

Comments: It's kind of unreal how awesome L27 is. It automates so many aspects of my business so I can focus on growing it. I made well over $1000 in my first month which I never could have done without L27. It's still not complete and it's clear that it's only going to get better and offer more features. I'm not particularly tech saavy so there is a slight learning curve as I figure out each new feature but it's well worth the effort. If there is any area that could be improved is more ways to get questions answered. A walk-me-through feature (like Bluehost) would be awesome, I have a lot of questions and I feel burdensome asking for one-on-one help for each little thing.

overall it is a good service especially the app but there is lots of room for improvement.
