SetMore allows users to build custom, business-based schedules. The application gives users the ability to create service-specific schedules, and assign certain services and appointment times to specific team members. Additionally, SetMore provides a user-facing appointment booking application that makes it easy for potential clients to schedule services with providers.
Users do not need a separate website in order to create a SetMore space—membership includes a schedule that can be linked from email or social media updates.Show more screenshots »
SetMore was created by a small team of developers that believe online solutions are one of the strongest methods for advancing a business’s interactions with its customers. The application was released in November of 2011, and has seen steady growth as more users are made aware of its features.
SetMore is different from other scheduling applications in that it provides free calendar and appointment booking to businesses that don’t have extremely heavy demands. Additionally, the application’s support for multiple users and the various tasks they can perform is a welcome feature for any small business owner that must constantly juggle the shifting schedule of several different employees with their own specialties. SetMore also offers a 3-month free trial of its premium service, providing curious businesses with plenty of time to explore its features.
SetMore is very easy to use, with a clear interface and helpful tooltips on complex features. Each step of setting up a schedule and workforce is laid out via a quick walkthrough that aims to get businesses up and running in the application with as little effort as possible. Customer information is stored in an easy to access and organize database, and the user backend for schedule tracking is similar to other address applications in that appointments can be added, edited and removed at any time.
To register, business owners must enter a name, email address and business name. From there, users can select either the free basic membership, or the paid premium membership. Next, users will select a time zone and schedule availability. Staff can be added on the next screen, then services. Once the services are entered, users are dropped into the application’s main interface.
SetMore offers three separate packages: Basic (free), Standard ($9.95 per month), and Premium ($19.95 per month). The free membership supports up to three staff members and 50 appointments a month, while the Standard allows appointments. The Premium service comes with 20 staff members.
SetMore works best for businesses with small staffs and a wide range of services. Any user that needs to constantly balance the skills of multiple employees with the demands of customers would be well served by SetMore’s features. Additionally, the presence of an out-facing booking page without the need for hosting gives offline businesses a cheap and effective method for hooking online appointment setting into their business models.
