Been a Housecall Pro user since the beginning, so we are reluctant to switch out of our awesome plan rate. With that being said, who is using the online booking? How is it working for you? Worth it?

We had it when it was beta... It worked fine for us... How much per month are they asking now? I got locked in at the $20 per month rate also at the very beginning...

We use the premium. Not sure of the plan as my son handles all that.

Maybe you can reach out to @rolandal and see what type of payment structure you would change to... Maybe they are still giving a TMF incentive...

We where able to get a free 3 month trial of it. We started last week and got one online booking so far. In process of overhauling website, which we will be really pushing customers to use our online booking tools such as LiveChat and others. Ill update in a couple months and let ya'll know how its goin.

Online booking is great for sales/marketing but can be a real headache for operations. Dont get to speak with people and feel them out, direct them to a time slot you want. Can end up with 2 jobs on the opposite side of town.

Been doing it for 10 years now.... like everything else pros/cons

Shane - Allow me to address your concerns:
  1. Dont get to speak with people and feel them out - Your Time is money. Collect a security deposit with online real-time booking. Money is Money...
  2. direct them to a time slot you want - Distance Incentive... .
    • Distance Deny...
  3. Can end up with 2 jobs on the opposite side of town - Not with Distance Deny!
Hope it helps. Let me know your thoughts...
