Why you'll find Zoho Bookings a better alternative to Setmore Appointments
Zoho Bookings has themes and layouts to give you beautiful booking pages in no time. Use the color palate feature to apply your brand colors to the booking page. Write booking page content that talks to your audience, and upload a relevant background image that pleases them.
Map your booking page to your domain and get a white-labelled booking page. You can also set up the notification emails to go from your domain. Customers will experience your brand throughout the booking process.
Write personalized and contextual content to connect with your customers. Insert variables like appointment time and meeting links to change the emails and SMSes dynamically. Have an HTML template for your emails? You can upload that, and send good-looking emails that bolster your brand.
Reduce no-shows with up to three email and SMS reminders. Customize these reminders to include cancellation and rescheduling links in case customers won't be able to join the meeting.
Group your team as workspaces and pool their calendars. Share the team booking page with customers and get bookings for the entire team, organized and assigned with set algorithms. Set up policies and preferences unique to that workspace and let the team work in the way they work best.
Scheduling classes is faster and easier with Zoho Bookings. You can have your customers book you for a series of sessions, or just one, depending on the class type you create.
Experience Zoho Bookings free for 15 days without any limits. We enable our best option, the Premium plan, during the trial. You can continue in our Free plan after the trial or move to one of our affordable paid plans.
You can increase the staff and workspaces (for example, a location or team) in your plan using add-ons. Keep using your favorite plan for as long as it fits your needs. Move to a higher plan only when you need more advanced features.
If you're a Zoho customer already, Bookings will fit in nicely with your existing portfolio of apps. Your data will remain clean and flow smoothly between Zoho apps.
You can use your Zoho account to log in to any of the Zoho apps including Zoho Bookings. No need to set up separate user authentication systems.
