Scheduling Software

I'm getting ready to dump the Gigbuilder program I use on my website that allows potential clients to check my availability and package prices and was wondering if anyone could recommend a replacement program that performs the same functions without the hefty price tag.

Re: Scheduling Software

Is it reasonable to assume you have no PHP / SQL programming skills? I wrote my own that also auto sends emails to them and to me when they inquire.

Re: Scheduling Software

I think it's worth the investment to get good marketing software - I've been using ShootQ for years and couldn't do without it - sure it's a monthly fee ($60 I think) but it virtually runs my business, online pricing, contracts, billing and stacks more.

There are a couple of alternatives, I'm not sure what they're like but you really should take a good look at the advantages of this sort of software.

Re: Scheduling Software

Check out 17hats. Many positive reviews and looks very intuitive from the little I've tried it (they offer a 15-day free trial). Also, pricing is quite good when compared to other management software.
