AlphaBook for a venue or professional services organisation
As a supplier of services, you manage your client list within AlphaBook, adding new users as you take new bookings.
When you add a new booking or edit an existing booking, your client is automatically updated and can view their invoice or invoice notification online. If you set due dates for the various payments related to a booking the client can receive reminders.
If you also have a credit card account with Stripe (www.stripe.com) you can also take online payments for your bookings.
You can view your bookings in your AlphaBook dashboard and can configure the types of booking you take and the resources you allocate so that your bookings can easily be searched and filtered. For example, filter by room name or by therapist assigned to the booking, filter by type of event or type of counselling required
If you take recurring bookings for the same service for a client it's very easy to duplicate bookings.
If you sell or give away tickets to events you can take bookings or sell tickets fee-free online with payment into your own stripe account.
AlphaBook for someone who has a booking with a venue or professional services organisation
Your supplier creates a booking for you and you receive an email which confirms it. If there are fees to be paid, you can see your invoice online and may even be able to pay it online. You can even receive reminders that payments are due.
Your supplier can tell you who is your on-the-day contact if appropriate and you can see all your bookings with the supplier in one place.
Your AlphaBook service is paid monthly by credit card. You can pay for 1 month or more at a time. Our prices are banded to suit the typical number of bookings you make in a month:
If you want to use AlphaBook for multiple users (for example, if you are a membership organisation or a chain of venues) please contact us for pricing and payment options.
AlphaBook is a product of Alpha CRM Ltd, which is a specialist provider of tailored CRM solutions. Based on the South Coast of England the company has over 20 years of experience in developing both off-the-shelf and bespoke software and development tools. Through our Professional Services team we can also offer specialist PC and web applications alongside AlphaCRM systems. We can also provide data integration solutions based on industry-standard technologies.
AlphaBook requires some basic information about users - whether users who represent venues or service organisations (suppliers) or those who make bookings (clients). This information is stored so that the system can automate the management of bookings.
When you log-in you can see the data we store - a name and email address are mandatory for both client and supplier, other information is optional. Some of the information, although optional is useful to make your experience of the system smoother - for example a postal address to appear on an invoice or the name of the organisation making a booking.
We store information about a client on behalf a supplier. As a client you can manage certain preferences such as email notifications but you would need to contact your supplier to close your account and this may or may not be a key aspect of doing business with them.
