Which Booking App Do You Recommend?
I'd like to add a booking widget to our website, to allow prospective visitors to book an initial consultation with us — which is done via video conferencing. Features we're looking for:
- must integrate with Apple Calendar
- must be able to complete booking without leaving the website - i.e., we do not want the visitor to have to leave the site and go to a 'booking page'
- must be able to customise appearance of booking widget enough to (somewhat) fit with our brand guidelines
Things that would be nice to have:
- integration with an open-source, free video conferencing tool like rather than just the usual commercial offerings (Zoom, Teams, etc.)
- ability to 'look busy' - i.e., fill the calendar with 'dummy' appointments when times are slow…
- integration with social media channels (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) so that bookings can also be made directly from the social media page
- SMS reminders (to customers in Australia)
As far as I can tell, Duda offers two apps atm that we could integrate directly into the site: Book Like a Boss and Bookafy. It seems to me that Bookafy comes pretty close to fitting what we want, but as we have no experience with either, I thought I'd ask here…
Do you have any experience with these apps? Can either of them do what we need? Would you recommend either? Or something else entirely?
