Time Saving Feature Just Released

Our first system upgrade of 2019 is now complete. There are two new features included. The first will save you time when you are setting up a new class/event. It allows you to copy a previously set up event and customise the fields that have changed. The below 43-second video demonstrates how it works.

Glowing Review From Enterprise Ireland New York

Before discovering BookingHawk.com, I was struggling to efficiently create a meeting schedule for an international delegation visiting Ireland. I knew it would be time consuming to manually book times for each meeting. I got in touch with BookingHawk.com and their customer support team was able to show me step by step how to successfully use the platform. They took the time to understand my event and make sure that the platform would solve the specific problems I needed it to for the scheduling. By using BookingHawk.com I saved hours of my own time in scheduling and was able to put that time towards other aspects of planning the event. In the end, we held over 70 meetings without any issue and counted the event a great success.” –
