Just wanted to bring to your attention an online customer booking system that will be available to our members either later today or tomorrow.
I know some of you use Journese so this won't be so interesting to you (for now). For those either without the budget for something like Journese or the time to set up an online booking system, our solution could work well for you.
In it's current (first version) form, customer are able to register and post bookings that will appear in your 'unallocated work' on mtvan. They will be able to view a list of reference numbers and addresses of their recent bookings. They are able to sign back in at a later time to view their previous bookings and post more work to you for a quote. All this will take place on your website.
It's very easy for you to implement, there is just one line of code that you will need to add to an appropriate place on your site and we do the rest of the work to populate the various screens. You will need to have your web address listed in your details on mtvan (most of you do anyway) as your personal customer booking screens will only work when added from your URL (security).
Let me know if you're interested in giving it a go. I'll be able to help you get things set up if you run into difficulties.
Best Wishes, Richard
P.S. Currently free for PRO and non-PRO members.
