What features do I need in an online booking system?
As a course provider, in order to understand the features you need, you first have to focus in on the elements of your business that you want to improve.

A note on booking system billing...
Cash is king in the course and training businesses. Running courses is hard as you sometimes have to stump up a lot of money to hire trainers and conference rooms before the course is even fully booked!
Be very wary of course booking platforms that only pay you your booking fees after your course has run. These platforms can present major cash flow problems for their users. At CourseCo we can build you a fully customised booking solution so that you can choose whether you want payment from your learners up front or down the track.
At CourseCo we do not impose any limits on your account.We will not charge you based on number of learners signed up and will not charge any commission on top of each booking.
Remember that booking systems can be complicated.
Your booking system changes with your business - so that’s why top class support is always vital when it comes to booking systems. Always choose a booking system that is configurable, customisable and one that has a great team in the background to help when you most need it.
If you follow this advice you’ll be well on your way to having a booking system that saves you time and money in the long run!
