Why Bookamat?

Meet Gayle, owner of Woodstock Pilates

A qualified IDTA teacher, a certified Body Control Pilates Teacher and Supervisor, Gayle is also recently qualified as a BootyBarre instructor. To those who know her, she is a creative, active and inspiring woman.

In a busy month Gayle teaches up to 40 classes a week at her studio in Woodstock, Cape Town, and has been no stranger to time consuming client administration. “I used to spend hours taking calls, rescheduling, cash handling and doing invoices each month. It would drive me crazy!” she says.

Having previously run her business using a paper calendar, spreadsheets and her mobile phone, Gayle was familiar with online scheduling platforms. However, being priced in US dollars, they were just too costly for her business to afford.

That was until 2016 when Gayle became the first studio to join Bookamat (priced in ZAR) and two years later she is still one of our biggest supporters. “It’s changed the way I do business and my clients love it too.” she says. “Bookamat saves me hours every week by calculating my invoices and allowing my clients to manage their own bookings” – Gayle.

Gayle also loves being able to manage her studio from the convenience of her mobile phone or tablet, and having recently turned 60 years young, Gayle loves to remind us that, “if I can work the system, anyone can!”
