Why Bookamat?

William, owner of High Intensity Pilates

A Pilates Master Trainer and Instructor Trainer, William is the man behind High Intensity Pilates which offers group reformer classes and individual training at the award winning Cape Town Medi Spa in Gardens, Cape Town.

Prior to opening High Intensity Pilates in 2005, William studied BA Music (Double Bass) and performed with various symphony orchestras. After completing a three year diploma in Dance at the University of Technology Tswane, he then worked as a professional dancer and performed with various dance companies and in numerous television productions.

By the time he joined Bookamat in July 2017, William had acquired over 12 years’ experience running a Pilates studio. He had been using a competitor’s online booking platform but found it to be “way too complicated.”

Aside from being simple to use, two key requirements William wanted in a booking system in order to minimise his client administration were:

  1. It had to reduce no shows by requiring clients who made bookings online to pay up front.
  2. It had to eliminate late payments by requiring clients to pay for recurring bookings before the 1st of each month.

 

We worked with William to develop these features for his studio which are now helping to streamline his booking, scheduling and payments processing. Thanks to Bookamat, William now spends no more than 8 hours a month on rescheduling, chasing late payments and invoicing.

 

“As a studio owner, being able to prevent no shows of clients booking and chasing after money are the most important reason why we want an online booking /payment system. Bookamat ticks those boxes for us and is a breeze to use!” – William Hall

 

Over time William has come to us with other neat suggestions for improvements which we have integrated into the system along with ideas from our other customers. At Bookamat we are always striving to improve and deliver a platform which meets the needs of our clients.

So, if you are looking for a simple, effective and affordable booking system for your fitness business, why not choose Bookamat which is trusted by a growing number of fitness and wellness professionals around South Africa.
