Do you run a service-based business like a salon, florist, or even garage? Maybe you’ve a gardening business looking to expand! Well, our latest app package, JustSell, has a brand-new feature made just for you! 

Our new services feature means that e-commerce is no longer just a product-based business solution – booking online has never been easier! In addition to being able to provide services, we also have a selling option which means that businesses like salons for example that also sell products, will be able to do so in one app.

The benefits to going digital with your booking system? There are many, but here’s just one reason: during the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdowns, businesses have had to increasingly rely on over-the-phone, e-mail, and online booking as in-person booking stopped overnight. In businesses like veterinary practices, or even salons, this has meant there is a huge backlog of appointments waiting to be seen too, and an ever-busier phone line being called. By going digital with your booking service you’re not only complying with COVID-19 regulations, but you’re also easing the workload on your administrative and receptionist staff. Happy staff = booming business!

Human error is part of every SME business – mistakes happen! A great thing about going online is that these occurrences are dramatically lowered and appointments are missed less and less! Going online doesn’t just benefit customers though, it also benefits the business owner. Booking online services has shown to drastically reduce the amount of time-wasters and no-shows, with paying in advance acting as an incentive for people to not mess businesses around. It also acts as an assurance, that if someone doesn’t show, you’re still not losing business or wasting your hard-earned money!
