7 main reasons why and how online booking system will make your life easier and help increase income from your business.

Easy managing

An online booking system optimizes your time and makes the entire organization much easier. You can set your work schedule and days off, see upcoming appointments, and view client contact information. Sales statistics allow you to see your income.

No distractions

Using booking system allows you to do your business and not be distracted by calls from clients asking about available dates and times for booking.

Your time protection

The online booking system will help you protect yourself and your time from clients who book and don't show up. To do this, you can use full or partial prepayment. The new appointment will be created only after prepayment.

Accept reservations 24/7

Accept new reservations around the clock. This will increase your income, reduce the number of calls and make the reservation process convenient because customers do not have to adjust for your working hours to book a date and time.

Self date and time selection

Don't force your clients to adapt to you, they have a job to do. Make your service as adapted as possible. Let customers choose the day and time that is most convenient for them to use your services.

Coupons and discounts

Provide your regular clients with discounts or coupon codes to increase customer loyalty.

Reminders

An automatic email notification system will prevent clients from forgetting an upcoming appointment.

As you can see, using the online booking system greatly simplifies the process of running a service business. At the same time, prepayment protects your time, and the ability to accept bookings 24/7 allows you to increase your income. 



As mentioned earlier, the Gridbox booking system is not just calendars. This is a more effective tool for different service businesses. Also, don’t forget that this is an online system. This means that you can easily attract new clients from search engines and advertising platforms. 

Booking on Joomla Made Easy

We have developed a tool that allows customers to create stunning Joomla booking sites with different types of services, from booking an appointment with a makeup artist to booking an apartment.



Gridbox Booking System is not a standalone Joomla extension, it's a Gridbox app. The installation process of the Gridbox Booking System is similar to installing any other app. You can find more details about installation, configuration, creating services, setting up layouts and much more in the documentation.




Booking Calendar



To work with your bookings, we have created a very convenient and user-friendly calendar. Gridbox Calendar provides comfortable and efficient work with your bookings.

You can create, edit, reschedule, and delete bookings in the Calendar. For convenience, you can view your appointments daily, weekly and monthly. Also, you can change the calendar view to Schedule. And of course, you can set your work schedule during which the client can leave a reservation.



You can learn more about all the available features and Calendar options in our previous blog post — Booking System Preview.




Service Page



The Service page is a page that displays the details of your booking service and, of course, the calendar picker with a book button. For experienced Gridbox users, this page is known as a Single Post Layout.



The flexibility to customize the Service Page Layout has no limits. Like any other Gridbox app, the single post layout of the page service includes a wide range of tools. So you can create the perfect layout for your services. From simple pages for booking barber services with a calendar and a “Book now” button to large informative pages with custom fields and image galleries for booking apartments and tours.
