Take Bookings, Manage Occupancy, Adhere to Social Distancing

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has meant businesses and organisations across the country needing to quickly adopt new ways of operating. Which is why we’re so excited to announce the launch of the SafeBook booking system.

Easy-to-use, quick to set-up and available now, SafeBook is the cost-effective solution to help organisations reopen with confidence, operate efficiently, and provide a welcoming customer experience in compliance with social distancing measures.

SafeBook Booking System

Capacity-Limited Time-Slots and Online Bookings

In these changed times, it’s essential that venues have control over the volume of people on site at any time.

SafeBook lets you manage these numbers, letting you create capacity-limited time-slots for a range of services.

These slots can then be easily booked by customers online, on any device. Helping to reduce queues, waiting times and the potential for over-crowding; and ensuring the on-site experience is welcoming, pleasant and in line with all health and safety measures.

Easy Booking Process For Customers

Customer experience is going to be a vital measure of success in the coming months, as we all get used to a new way of operating. Which is why businesses will need to make it as easy and convenient as possible for customers to get access to services.

Such as a simple, online booking process, that can be accessed with ease via a company website and social media channels.

Accessible from any device, the SafeBook system lets people search for and quickly book available time slots; with the option for businesses to take a deposit if required. Once booked, the customer receives a confirmation email, and optional SMS, plus a follow-up reminder ahead of their appointed time.

Regulating On-Site Occupancy

Maintaining safe and controlled numbers on premises is a fundamental measure for businesses looking to reopen. SafeBook helps manage this efficiently, effectively and with minimal impact on staff time.

As well as setting occupancy levels for each time-slot, the system also helps you regulate the actual numbers on-site with a digital check-in and check-out feature, managed from a mobile responsive dashboard in the back-end of the system.

Which means staff and management can have a real-time view of how many people are on-site at any time.

Who Is SafeBook For?

SafeBook can be used by businesses of all sizes, from those operating a single venue to those with multiple venues. There’s also an Enterprise option for larger companies.  

The flexibility of the system means it’s ideal for any business that needs to change the way they engage and monitor access to their premises or services; allowing you to create appointments, slots for visiting, collection services or for booking out facilities.

And, with businesses now starting to welcome staff back to the office, it offers an ideal solution to regulate access, to ensure staff can return in the right numbers, maintaining social distancing.

Key Sectors That Will Benefit from SafeBook

  • The Care Sector
  • Pharmacies & Medical Centres
  • Retail
  • Hospitality Establishments (e.g. pubs, cafes, coffee shops)
  • Leisure, Tourism and Attractions
  • Public Services
  • Gyms and Sporting Facilities

A Brand Consistent, Feature Rich System

The system can be tailored to include a company’s logo, images and content to maintain brand consistency in the booking process.

In addition, the system comes complete with an easy-to-use back-end system, featuring a dashboard showing real-time data, and tools for managing bookings, occupancy levels, availability, waiting lists, promotional codes and customer information.

Providing a full suite of tools to manage bookings and site access without impacting on precious time.

Gareth Rees Jones, Managing Director of thinkBooker

“The recent COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on the way we live and work. What’s clear is that, while places will be able to re-open in the weeks and months ahead, they will have to do so under new conditions and with rules in place to manage occupancy and safe social distancing.”

“The SafeBook system has been developed to help businesses find a cost-effective and efficient way to start operating, earning revenue and serving their customers once again, helping them to meet these new conditions in a way that doesn’t impact heavily on staff time, and that encourages visitors by making the experience as pleasant, comfortable and enjoyable as possible, without compromising the safety of the customer or members of staff.”
