Booking systems for Community centres make it easy to book online and check bookings for courses, meetings and events, saving time and money. They are a big help for your administration team.
There is a great deal of paperwork to do when running community centres. Some community centres have to hire extra staff at peak times to handle the workload and someone has to spend time in the office collating all the information ... spending hours on getting all the paperwork done for just a few bookings. For handling large amounts of information, and making this information so accessible from anywhere (for authorised persons), online booking systems really have come into their own. No wonder many companies have turned to using an online booking system for community centres, because it really saves so much time - and time is money!
Online booking systems for community centres are sometimes referred to as scheduling software. The easy access facilitates members and visitors to seek and book their spaces for online courses, or workshops, helps with scheduling cleaners, technicians, etc, and keep a clear record of everything online. Your booking system can take payments online too, when people book the community centre facilities, and sends the money straight to your account with no other user input. Talking of money, all details of your community centre can be added to the booking system, which can automatically collate reporting systems for you, letting you know at a glance how much things have been costing, or where rooms or spaces are really paying their way, or losing money.
Keep up to date with up immediate reporting, checklists, and all data visible, in one easy place. Your book keepers can also check in to check accounts, automatically if you wish. Once your regular people and information are logged on, much of the calendar is automatically populated for you and takes care of itself, however management can make any changes or edits necessary. This also greatly reduces the enquiries about details, from visitors and co-workers, when everyone can log in, online, to check their own details via your online booking system for your community centre - at any time day or night with their personal username and passwords. So confidentiality is achieved and it saves those last minute phone calls from people needing information too! Your online booking system for community centres will enables you to publish all your events at the optimum times, and send emails out everyone involved. It also enables emails to previous attendees. Those who have forgotten to book can be diarised to get reminders of what is on offer. You can set up events with full descriptions published next to them. There is no need to print anything except perhaps a notice, or if you have a digital notice board, this is automatically on view in your lobby.
Would you like to schedule a demonstration for our online booking systems for community centres, and see how they could work for you - and how it could revolutionise your management systems and save money and staff time? We are happy to offer Zoom or Skype demonstrations, or visit you to show you in person. Or visit our offices in Eastbourne, for a discussion of your needs, and we can show you how we will design your booking system around them, and give you a price on the spot.
When you think about how much time booking systems could save you, and add up the man-hours your community centre is saving, we think you will find the booking system is actually incredible value - and as your commnunity centre gets busy, the online booking system can still cope and is reliable, accurate, and actually really useful at keeping great communication with everyone involved with automatic record keeping, acknowledging all bookings and payments, populating your calendar, and keeping all data safe and secure (password protected) not in paper files which can be lost, damaged or stolen, but in the Cloud, easily accessible via Smartphone.
