Acuity is great if you're looking for software for appointment scheduling. However, it's not great for managing class bookings and courses, nor will it help you with waitlists, payroll, and marketing.
But there’s bookee for everything Acuity can’t do.
Built with bookee
Acuity is not designed for fitness businesses. It lacks essential features like a branded booking app, POS, VOD, payroll management & marketing tools. All of which are included with bookee.
Acuity lacks waitlist management and automated cancellation charges, resulting in a loss of revenue. Bookee's automated waitlist and cancellation management ensures that you never lose money on an unfilled spot.
Acuity's calendar is hard to use and lacks important features. Bookee's calendar allows you to easily view your schedule by day, week, and instructor, and also let’s walk-in customers check in, submit attendance, and make bookings.
Acuity only allows bookings from their app, and doesn't provide data on the number of bookings. Bookee offers a Branded App, which typically generates 88% of bookings.
Acuity's support is only available via email, which can lead to hours of frustration. In contrast, bookee offers the fasest support via phone, text, or email.
Without lead management, you’ll be unable to track and target your leads, making it difficult to acquire new customers
Without access management, You or your staff will spend hours keeping a check on your clients’ access eligibility
Without a proper POS in place, you are susceptible to regular payment failures, leading to bad customer experience & increased workload on front desk manager
If your software lacks this, you’ll either spend hours calculating & disbursing salaries manually or you’ll have to settle for a payroll software that’s not made for fitness businesses
Without the option to substitute instructors, you run the risk of cancelling classes, hence revenue loss, due to instructor unavailability
Absence of Task Management leads to staff missing out on performing critical tasks because they’ve no idea about who’s responsible
Branded App & website are the primary sources of getting bookings, hence are sacrosanct for driving sales
Memberships & subscriptions are the easiest and surest ways to generate recurring revenue from your customers. Imagine not having that option of assured earnings on the table.
With contracts & waivers not built-in, you’ll have to look for a separate integration to avoid legal risks, which is an unnecessary hassle you can avoid
Email marketing is a great tool for driving acquisition, retention, and revenue. Without it, you miss out or have to use something like Mailchimp, which can be a pain.
If 2-way SMS is missing from your suite, you are losing the opportunity to personalize communication and resolve client issues instantaneously
Not using in-app notifications means missing out on the best way to provide timely information to clients, failing to upsell and cross-sell, and losing revenue.
Without monitoring customer behavior, you cannot know if your efforts are bringing in new customers or how engaged your customers are with you.
