Booking System

Just a bit of research

for those of you that are powerboat schools

do you use an electronic booking sytem for recording your courses and students details (not a website, one for the office staff)

for those of you in the hire boat business

do you use an electronic booking sytem for recording your bookings and event details (not a website, one for the office staff)

Booking system

Hi James, i am / was an IT manager in the aviation industry and have much experience in Microsoft Access programming and can make a tailor made solution to your requirements. Currently working on payroll programs and fleet maintenance programs with fairly complicated requirements, so i am sure a booking system is well within my capabilities. Give me a ring on 07770 987152 to discuss if you wish.
Regards
James

How flexible is this system for adding extra sessions, editing them etc?

I'm currently looking for a system to replace our paper based system for sailing and power courses. We have a mixture of programmed courses which people enrol on and a lot of bespoke private tuition all of which need to go on to the same calendar/system which we can access from home or the office.

I tried using google calendar at the start of the year but soon had problems with events moving, going missing or being repeated when I started syncing with my outlook and phone calendars so reverted back to a paper diary when we started having 'random' people turning up or not at all.

Looking for something which has a calendar, can handle bookings/course registers for each course/event and ideally will send out joining instructions etc by email to new students when I enrol them on a course.

Hi

We have a really good system that we take bookings on

It was developed by my web designer

Im sure it could be adapted for your courses

We take bookings for about 3000 people per year

We have about 5 RYA centres using it for running their centres more coming on every month. We also have lots of kitesurfing centres and many other centres for example Diving, Flying, Pole dancing etc etc. If you want a demo or to chat PM me or call on 07876 135 911 or look here http://www.classcalendar.biz/demo/index.html we have a flash demo that can take you through the system. Once running it does save a lot of time on taking bookings because it works 24/7 365 days a year!!
