Pros: Its simple to understand, offers lots of features, its support team is always available.

Cons: Nothing.

Overall: I considered many different booking systems for my fitness business - but none of them offered the simplicity and user clarity that Bookwhen does. I can create recurring events with customer payment facilities attached easily, run detailed reports to understand booking trends, collect customer information for mail outs. Bookwhen even offers creativity to make the customer facing pages the same colours as my brand, upload my company logo, attachments, feature social media buttons etc.

Bookwhen's own features even prompt me to gear my business in new ways: various ticket types offer the ability to sell to the customer in various avenues, without over-complicating things. Even when I wanted to offer a commission-based element to my business that they didn't already support, I approached the team to see if they would code something specifically to support my business needs and together we made it happen. This sort of service is second to none.

The best part is that anytime I've ever needed support (which is a lot) I can use the instant chat feature, email and even call the support team to get approachable service and considered help.

Within 2 years using Bookwhen my business had grown from a sole trader to a large limited company - without such a fluid booking ability for my customers this would have never been possible.

The subscription price is competitive and the features and service are top notch, I fully recommend Bookwhen.

Recommendations to other buyers: Using this software makes scheduling events and customers payments and reporting easy.

Pros: Ease of use/very simple back end

User-friendly, clients find it easy to use and we have never had someone, not book due to the difficulty of the booking system.

Great design - Clean and neat

Does exactly what I need it to do

Excellent support

Cons: Nothing

I think it has more features than I am making full use of!

Overall: I spent months trying to find the perfect booking system to meet my needs. There were many good products on offer, but nothing that gave me what exactly what I was looking for...there was always a compromise somewhere. I then found Bookwhen and it was a perfect fit. It has revolutionized the way we operate our business. It is user-friendly, very easy to navigate both backends and for our guests and it has a great design/layout which matched the look and feel of our website. Bookwhen also offers quick and professional support whenever you need. I was able to share feedback, so when the new system was introduced with the new improvements, I felt that my feedback was taken into account and that we had grown together! It really is a fantastic booking system, our business is running at 100% occupancy and I feel that this is partly due to the ease of online bookings. We will be going into our 5th year with Bookwhen and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Recommendations to other buyers: I feel I have a personal relationship with the support team and that I am valued. When I am asked to feedback on certain things or when I feel I want to feedback on something specific to the software, then I am heard and where possible when they update the system, these new features are available.

Pros: I like Bookwhen because I sought it out to deal with a client who runs a business that deals with pet transport adoptions. They coordinate a drive up from the south to New England every 2 weeks, and need to register all of the information about the animals (where they're going, their health records, etc) and also assure that each dog has an appropriately sized kennel on the van. It's a little confusing, but because of the nature of the business, it's really important that everything be done safely and efficiently. Bookwhen allows us to set up transports, register the dogs, and take down information not only on the rescue the dog is coming from but also their new home. I use Bookwhen for some other, routine businesses that need yoga classes or other things run, but ultimately what keeps me recommending them for scheduling is that Bookwhen works for complicated businesses who need to take in a lot of info from customers, customers need different "seats" (crate sizes) and sometimes other information at intake. Bookwhen allows for _all_ of it, which is the best possible scenario for us.

Overall: Super flexible. Schedule what you want, with the types of tickets you want, with the information you want without much fuss.

Pros: Its easy to use from both our perspective and the customer facing side of things. We've been using Bookwhen for a couple of years and it has completely changed the way we do things. Attendance lists are easy to create quickly but also to download and manipulate to suit our needs. We love the way you can send links to whole public pages or just specific events. The event reminders are a great help in ensuring people arrive for events or get in touch to say they aren't coming. Customer service is brilliant. We rarely wait more than 5 minutes for a chat response. They listen to our feedback and it been great to be able to influence improvements for ourselves and for other users.

Cons: There are a couple of things we'd like Bookwhen to be capable of but they are fairly minor and the company have already promised to add them to their development plan so I'm pretty confident we'll see changes over the coming months.

Pros: It has a simple interface where you can customise your event(s) and take multiple bookings or limit to just one booking per customer.

We use it to allow customers to book in for online webinars, consultations and training sessions.

We don't need to take any payment so I haven't used that part of the service.

It must be simple to use, as I've never had to reach out to their support team or even online documentation - it's all pretty self explanatory once you've had a poke around to familiarise yourself first.

Cons: It used to look a little dated but they recently got everyone on the old version to update to the new version (still free - yay) and it looks better now. It would be nice if you could customise the public facing page a little more, but for a free package, I'm not complaining!

Overall: Helps us to stay organised when customers book in with us for webinars, consultations and online training sessions.

Pros: The software is great and does exactly what you would expect from a booking system. It is extremely easy to navigate for both an administrator and from a users perspective. As well as the basic features you can also get the bells and whistles depending on your plan (at a more than reasonable price).

We have managed to run our parents' evening event for a College in Central London at what quite frankly is an unbeatable price compared to other solutions out there. Parents making the booking commented that it was easy to book and administrators explained that it had saved them hours of work collating bookings. It also allowed us to take bookings right up until the last minute. It literally took 5 minutes to export our bookings to tell the teachers who was coming to their session.

However, the best thing is not the software, don't get me wrong the software is great but it is the service and support that makes this the product of choice.

Thank you for your support and a great product.

Overall: We ran a successful Parents' Evening that was supported by an excellent product.

Thanks for the amazing review, Carl! I'm really happy we turned out to be a good solution for your parents evening. Looking forward to welcoming you onto the system for more of your needs at the college in September (we also handle course registration/inductions really well too). Thanks from the Bookwhen team :)

Pros: Not being very tech savvy, I find this system so easy to use.

I run a small home-based business so it's great that Bookwhen is not and expensive to have.

Excellent Customer Support.

It has all the features that I need.

Cons: I would say that the TROLLEY symbol should be bigger or a CART function needs to be applied as when some customers want to make multiple bookings, they don't always notice the trolley symbol near the class and so they book and pay for each class seperately. This causes an inconvenience.

Overall: It's easy to use, affordable, has great features and customer support is always great.

Hi Leonie,

Thanks very much for this amazing review! Regarding the basket system, we've actually introduced a banner at the top of all booking pages with a live update on number of tickets and price, so I think this resolves the particular issue you raised :) It should be even clearer for your customers now!

Thanks, Luke

Pros: Support team are awesome, friendly user interface, explanatory back end. Responsive to ideas and features users need. Decent payment portal transfers and option. Discount features/options for users.

Cons: Back end could always have a few tweaks here and there. Mobile layout for block bookings could be a tiny bit clearer.

Overall: I've been using bookwhen since its first iteration for my coaching business after looking around for the best balance of affordability and features. Throughout my use the support team has been there every step of the way, when I've found issues or got myself confused they've responsed FAST always looked into and solved my problems.

They are contining to add features, refine service and with their newer version released just under a year or so ago, the system is a lot more polished, user friendly and has helped my business and delivery grow massively.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're looking to an affordable, straightforward booking system for adbanced bookinga for classes, courses, shows or anything of that nature. I can't recommend this enough.

Pros: Lovely interface, helpful staff and good value for money

Cons: Exporting lists to excel etc is untidy so end up having to do copy and paste which is dull and time consuming, hard to search back for particular customers e.g. by name.

Overall: The book when team are always on hand to offer fantastic help and customer service without making you feel inept! The 'new' version is very easy to use with a great looking customer interface. There are a couple of things that could be improved or added but the team are always welcome to feedback. Very happy and suits my small business perfectly!

Recommendations to other buyers: Wish you could make your homepage a bit more customised - other than just a picture, e.g. layout etc. Would be nice to add on features such as wait list or reminder emails as a payable extra e.g. Lite plan but pay an extra £2 a month for wait list. As a small business I can't warrant the cost of the next plan up when it's not necessary but it would be nice to have the features that come with it.

Hi Lucie,

Thanks very much for your positive review :) To address your points:

- We do have an attendee sheet function. I'm not sure if you're aware? This would save having to rely on booking exports from the system.
- The homepage allows you to customise colour, header image, logo and add a title and text about your offering. You can also include business contact details in the footer. This is similar to business profiles on other websites. However if you think there's some more adaptability we could incorporate into the public page then please let us know.
- In terms of monthly bookings you're a relatively light user of the system, so I'm surprised we haven't already offered you a discounted upgrade for the features you mention! Please get in touch with us and we'll sort this out :)

Thanks, Luke

Pros: I absolutely adore this booking system. It is super easy to use and is great value for money. It is easy to set everything up and take payment online or cash payments. Groups of bookings is possible, continual bookings and course bookings are available.

Cons: I would like to be able to see past bookings for longer periods of time. Being able to see bookings from a month ago would be fantastic and a way of printing out the booking sheet with contact details of my clients would be great too. I don't know if this is already an option and I just haven't found it yet.

Pros: Bookwhen was the only booking software I found that was really tailored for running children's clubs and classes, not primarily an appointment booking system, which I didn't want. It is simple for my customers to use and although it has taken me a while to get all of my information on and work my way round the system (but then don't they all?) it does everything I need it to do. The help service is really good, offering help articles, live chat or on the phone. They are UK based and real quick to respond.

Cons: Just the time it took to work it all out, but all the other trials I did were the same, I don't think there is any quick fix!

Overall: Brilliant, exactly what I was looking for.

Pros: The cost: I teach CPR as a hobby and net profit is only a few hundred a year. Bookwhen has been an excellent low cost option that meets my needs well. My customers can pay online if they want, they can see my scheduled classes and the details and locations for those classes.

Cons: Just minor things: There is a little bit of confusion when there is the option to pay at class - the checkmark to pay later is kind of buried for the user. Also, some of the more advanced scheduling could be a little smoother, but overall it's very good.

Vendor Response

by Bookwhen on September 06, 2018

Thanks for the review, Andrea! We'd like to think the 'pay later' option is as prominent as the online payment option when activated. You could maybe consider adding some more text to the offline payment instructions to make it clearer? We'd love to hear your feedback on the advanced scheduling too - we're always looking to optimise.

Thanks for being such a committed Bookwhen customer! Here's to many more years of CPR training.

Pros: Ease of using the product.

Cons: There needs to be an easier way to manage people that are on the wait list. Both in terms of viewing a list of all people on the wait list without having to scroll through all bookings and in terms of contacting them and booking them into a different time slot.

Overall: As a small non-profit ticketing software can be overly expensive for our organization. Bookwhen offers a great product that meets our needs at an affordable price. There customer service is fantastic, they are very helpful and we found them to be quite responsive. They continue to add new features each year which has given us additional functionality. Highly recommend this product!!!

Hi Tanya,

Thanks very much for your review :) Thanks for the feedback regarding the waiting list. The function works really well for the vast majority of our customers, but I can see how things would be a bit trickier in your case as you had around 40 appointment slots per day. You're welcome to get in touch as we'd love to make the waiting list process work even better for appointment set ups like yours!

Thanks, Luke

Pros: It's easy for a new client to book into a class and easy for a regular client to use repeatedly and quickly. It's also easy for coaches to check on class attendance and it's veratile enought that we can use it for all of our needs.

Cons: Its clunky to keep track of cash payments and doesnt have a dedicated page for taking register once the class begins.

Overall: Dont underestimate Bookwhen. A tiny application compared to some other software booking packages but it's versatile, powerful and great to use. My clients find booking easy and repeat bookings even easier. I'm very happy with it.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's easily the most cost effective software on the market. At a fraction of the cost of GoTeamUp or MindBody but a realistic competitor.

Vendor Response

by Bookwhen on September 06, 2018

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, James! We agree that a proper interface for filtering on events would be a good addition. However, we think the ability to use Markdown to create very customisable options/layouts for filtering is a good substitute in the meantime. We appreciate some of this can feel a bit advanced, so if our help articles aren't enough then we're always here to help you with the code!

Thanks very much for using the system :)

Pros: It's a good price for what I get and it works well for my purposes generally.

I like to use the voucher system but don't think I get the most out of it because I don't know how.

Cons: I really want to have reminders and waiting lists but will never need the extra bookings or admins so the package is limiting for my use. The landing page could look smarter and some of the print is too small or not obvious. eg voucher code and select number should be easier.

Ease of use, seamless interface for purchases, and outstanding customer service.

Overall: We discovered Bookwhen 5 years ago by chance, and have been using it every since to book learners onto courses for several of our clients. We simply couldn't run elements of our business without it and it has helped us to sell courses by providing the booking system from Bookwhen. The Customer Support is excellent, always responding to help and often doing what you needed to do there and then. Highly recommend.

Pros: Easy to use for both administrators and customers. Really like that you can set up repeating events with ease. This software has made my bookings a breeze. Great customer service too.

Pros: I like the automation of the software. It saves me a lot of extra work, I can just concentrate on what I'm good at, delivering the classes and making my members sweat!

Cons: Takes a little time to get used to. I'm not the greatest with online stuff anyway so it took me a little while to get my head around some of the features but I suppose that's the same with learning anything new.

Overall: Bookwhen has automated a lot of my booking process and allows my members a number of options when it comes to booking, cancelling or transferring. It also offers us a professional looking booking system that is uniform across the brand.

Thanks for the great review, Angie! In terms of the public side of Bookwhen, you can actually use HTML in your event descriptions to edit the text, or insert images and videos. Many of our businesses also use emoji's in the event titles to help visually differentiate different events on the schedule page. I hope that helps? Please follow up with support if you need any further advice :)

Overall: I cannot recommend Bookwhen enough. After spending days trawling through lots of different booking systems, I decided to take the plunge with Bookwhen. It is so very easy to use and is beautifully straight forward! Whenever I have needed to query something, the support team is always there to help and ususally contact me back in a couple of hours. It has been a lifesaver to my business and has meant my admin is not only reduced but recorded. There are so many systems out there but in my opinion Bookwhen is THE best! Others have far too many things to get your head around whereas bookwhen does what it says on the tin. I have shown and recommended Bookwhen to lots of my colleagues, who are also impressed with the service. 5* all the way!

Pros: Simple to use for the clients and for me. I find adding classes or changes times easy to do. Email confirmation is fantastic, also easy option to cancel. The help I have been given by their team has been second to none. I always recommend Bookwhen when people ask about it.

Cons: When I started I had the waiting list option and someone on list would be contacted if a place became available. I cannot afford that any more as my business is very small and I don't earn enough to have that.

Overall: I am not constantly getting telephone calls to book classes and then have to do so. People can book as far in advance as they want - which is useful for a popular class as I can only have six people in a session.

Pros: The capturing of data for enrolment means that parents do not have to write on the enrolment forms. We can easily see how many bookings we have and comunicate with them

Hi Catherine, Thanks for taking the time to provide a review, we really appreciate it!

Glad to hear that you are generally happy with Bookwhen. As I understand your point regarding the waiting list, you would like a qualification question so you can see if it is possible to book parents onto other events when their chosen one is not available? This is certainly something we could look into.

We strive to continually innovate and introduce new features whenever we can so thanks again for your invaluable feedback!

Since using Bookwhen for our training programmes and events, our workload has reduced significantly.

Pros: Ease of use, tagging classes to be able to categorise them, the discount functionality, the teams speed of response.

Cons: It is not a difficult system but it can take a few months to iron out any small quirks to make it match your exact business needs.

There are a few minor functionalities that I would like it to have like a client notes section but the team know about this and add it to their list of modifications for the future.

The CSV file it provides me does not give me the exact MI I need so I am having to adapt to it. That said I have not spoken to the team about it so maybe it can be resolved.

Easy set up and a wide range of functions that suit us better than other booking services.

Thanks for your feedback on the system and glad to hear you appreciate the transparent, flat monthly fees :)

Based on the consensus from most customers, we'd like to think the system is pretty intuitive already. However, we have actually spent the summer making the system even more intuitive for mobile/tablet users and consolidating some of the admin options into more sensible places. We hope you appreciate the updates and please give us a shout if you have any more suggestions on changes to the system :)

Love from Bookwhen.

Pros: One feature I have found nowhere else: the ability to book multiple sessions in one transaction which allows me to offer flexible booking. All other systems I've found require my users to check out each session individually.

Cons: I can see little tweaks that might improve front end usability (allowing front end users to search tickets) and some extra features that I think would compliment/improve functionality (membership & subscription options) but am happy to see that many of these points are earmarked for development.

Overall: I can now offer flexible online booking for all my students.

Hi Renee,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review, we really appreciate it! Glad to hear that Bookwhen works well for you and your customers.

You can refund your customers through your payment gateway (Stripe, Paypal, Worldpay) but unfortunately we cannot push this through for you. However, I have noted your comments on this and your wish to sell products through Bookwhen (if the products you sell are similar you could set up a separate ticket for them, but this wouldn't work for unique items).

We are continually innovating and looking for the next feature to add so let me know if there is anything else you need.

Pros: Ease of use and hugely functional user environment.

Cons: Nothing!

Overall: I was able to learn the bookwhen basics in a matter of 1 hr! Had access to the UI, created bookings, started taking payments and rarely does success come so easily!

What an awesome service!.....Even when I got myself into difficulty, support was only an email away and with a quick response time, issue sorted (keyboard end!) and I was back up and flying!

Recommendations to other buyers: For those wanting an automated booking taking system with a highly functional interface and brilliant support - DON'T LOOK ANY FURTHER!.......BookWhen is it!

Pros: I like that the user interface is simple. Many of my clients are over 50 and they appreciate the ease of use. I thinj registering for a class should be a quick and easy experience and this fulfills those requirements.

Cons: I have struggled a little with attempting to duplicate events. Many of my classes require the same description, but with different dates, different locations. This is probably user error as I am sure there is a simole way to do it.

Overall: My clients immediately gave postitive reviews. Instead of my clients waiting until the class to pay fees, they can pay when they register via credit card. It has improved my business exponentially.

Thanks for the great review, Elizabeth! Really good to hear your customers are fans of Bookwhen too :D

In terms of duplicating an event - this is a really easy job, so please give me a shout if you have any questions on it, I can point you towards our help articles or talk you through it :)

Pros: Capping certain number of attendees for an event is the best feature so far. Alongside unique attendees is definitely another best feature we require. Customizing public pages is worth the mention as well.

Cons: Everything works perfect except its UI feels like it could definitely use a complete design overhaul.

Overall: 1. Informing about event details and having the clients book a seat easily.

2. Unique attendees is definitely a plus.

3. Lesser phone calls and enquiries about the events from clients which saves a lot of time and resources.

Bookwhen has been a lifesaver, very easy to use and the customer support is excellent.

Pros: It's fairly basic, but in a good way. Not too difficult for amateurs, but has enough content for those more experienced users.

Cons: I'd like to see more options for design/editing booking schedules. Just to make it easier for users to view and looks more appealing.

Pros: Easy to use, just fill in the fields and the payments are handled seamlessly. Once you set up your most used events, you can duplicate and change the dates quickly.

Cons: I sometimes fail at duplicating events, I forget I need to check each field for outdated information and update.

Overall: An online presence with paying facilities and a professional store front.

Pros: Ease of use and fantastic, quick and friendly customer support - I want to get my events out there quickly, time spent understanding software is a waste so getting great help, even going so far as to do something for me was amazing, welcome and the best way to show me what to do

Cons: I'd like to be able to have more advertising/photo around each entry on my schedule. Be able to show a set of events as different from others. Would be good to be able to sell a product/service.

Vendor Response

by Bookwhen on November 07, 2017

Thanks for the great feedback :)

Just as an FYI - you can actually already include images in your event descriptions and you can filter your public page to focus on a specific event, or set of events. There's also an individual event page too that you can link directly to.

Thanks for choosing Bookwhen - glad to hear we saved you from Eventbrite ;)

Cheers, the Bookwhen team.

Pros: The flexibility of being able to adapt my bookings and the ease of doing this. Keeping my customers happy and making bookingmy class as easy as possible for them. Online support is fast and always helpful.

Overall: Easy to use website. Customers found the website easy to use and liked that they could book and pay so didn't have to worry on the night. As an instructor this allows me to see how many participants I have before my class for numbers.

There are a lot of features including allowing people only to book for a certain number of people and weeks, the use of discount codes. The website is very easy to use and make changes for what I require for my class. I would highly recommend using bookwhen.

Comments: We bought Bookwhen for registration management of our annual conference. The features of the product were very user friendly and adaptive, the registration process went very smooth because of Bookwhen and saved our time and increased efficiency. But more than anything, the super great customer service was extremely helpful. Luke from Bookwhen helped us promptly every step of the way, there was not a single time when support was not provided timely. Thank you Bookwhen and kudos to the customer service team!

Pros: We use bookwhen to let customers reserve their spot in our weekend classes. Lets us run promotions and cap the number of attendees.

Cons: Only shows the number of spaces available for an event, not the number of attendees. We've had some issues with promo codes being stackable too.

Vendor Response

by Bookwhen on September 10, 2018

Thanks very much for the review, really good to have some feedback! You can easily quote the size of the class within the event description or title if that helps? You're correct - at the moment you can't use multiple discounts on the same single booking. We're looking into offering this in the future, but please give us a shout if you want to talk about ways you might be able to adapt your promotional offers - we're always happy to help!

Pros: Most of my business requirements are met. I like the booking reporting and the follow up email event reminders to customers.

Pros: This site is so user friendly and it looks great too. The vast options for making the site relevant to my organisation was excellent

Cons: I don't have any. Great resource for any organisation

Overall: Before I started my job my organisation was still doing registrations for events through paper. This method added to my administrative duties as I had to log all data only my computer. With bookwhen that all stopped overnight. All correspondence came to me for everyone who registered and then I could download all the information I wanted.

The level of customer service from representative and everyone else is first class.

Great site and I would highly recommend this service
