Seamless booking from Google to Booksy businesses is now available, generating more business for Booksy’s health, hair and beauty professionals in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Eastbourne, United Kingdom – Booksy, the top-rated booking, business management and lead generation software for the health and beauty industry is proud to announce the launch of a new booking option in partnership with Google one of the world’s leading technology companies. After a successful rollout in the United States, this new solution integrating Booksy bookings with Reserve with Google will now be available in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Reserve with Google is an innovative feature that allows users to book directly through Google’s search engine, improving the ease of making appointments for both clients and for merchants, and, increasing client conversions from those just browsing into actual bookings. Partnerships such as this are a core part of Booksy’s work to support our merchants’ businesses and improve their and their clients’ experiences.
Research shows that the most frequent use of Google search by our merchants’ clients is to check opening times and addresses. Now when they search ‘barbers near me’ or ‘nails near me’ they can also directly book themselves in and pay without needing to go to another website – and all this happens without extra work for the service provider. All bookings made through Reserve with Google arrive at the merchants’ Booksy account just like regular appointments made through the Booksy application.
This new partnership follows a number of feature updates including Deposits and Prepayments and Instagram booking which are all designed to further transform the experience and work/life balance of Booksy users.
Booksy was one of the first companies to integrate ‘book’ buttons with other popular platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Yelp. With their presence on Reserve with Google, Booksy continues to allow clients to book where they look for suggestions of health, hair and beauty professionals.
Konrad Howard, Chief Product Officer of Booksy stated, “Booksy now allows users to take appointments not only from Facebook and Instagram but, also from Google, the most popular search engine ever.” According to Howard, the company continues to grow from strength to strength in its quest to achieve its goal of making appointments easy. “No other system like Booksy can boast that they’ve been chosen by so many leaders of the tech world”, he added.
How It Works
When Booksy merchants have their Google My Business accounts activated, they have increased visibility when clients search for their business. It links the merchant’s calendar with Google’s search engine and clients can easily Reserve with Google for any service they want just like they can from the service providers’ Facebook, Instagram, Booksy mini-site and their website.
Booksy is available for both Android and iOS devices. For more info, visit: booksy.com
