As a business owner, do you feel you’re missing out on opportunities due to being on the phone or working with current clients? Are you feeling bogged down by all the emails and texts that tend to pile up? Missed opportunities will always be there, but with GigaBook, you can reduce missed opportunities while still saving time, money and resources; all resulting in growth.

5. Get More Done, Keep The Team On-Task
You understand the need for reducing wasted money, time and resources and meeting deadlines in regard to growing a business and continuing to thrive. Oftentimes that requires you and your team becoming more efficient when it comes to getting things done, especially if you have people in the field or out of the office. With GigaBook’s Project Manager feature, you have the ability to:
- Create customized project tickets
- Assign projects to clients or staff
- Leave feedback about ongoing projects
- Edit existing projects
- Customize projects to your needs
If a full-blown project isn’t what you require, there is an option to divvy up daily tasks or help meet deadlines with GigaBook’s to-do lists (second image). This helps keep certain operations organized as well as set goals for staff. With your to-do lists, you can:
- Create new lists
- Add notes for staff
- Sort lists based on priority
- Remove items from lists
- Download to-do reports
6. Personalized Email/Text Notifications and Reminders
Being available and keeping in contact with staff and clients can oftentimes become overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can miss fewer opportunities by reducing the number of no-show appointments and make sure no one misses a beat. Email and text reminders and notifications are great for sending promotional materials, thank yous, birthday wishes and keeping clients and staff updated about upcoming appointments.
With email and text reminders and notifications customization, you can:
- Create custom messaging
- Edit content templates
- Choose when and what to send
- Allow clients to reschedule or cancel
- Create follow ups
7. Group Function Bookings
Growing a business doesn’t always involve simple, one-on-one interactions. Maybe you’d like to host a class, seminar or conference – something that involves a gathering of people in one location. That is where GigaBook’s Group Sessions come in handy.
You can personalize your Group Sessions and do the following:
- Set attendance limits
- Create titles and descriptions
- Collect client information
- Track number of attendees
- Add images
- Determine pricing
(Please Note: Group Sessions must be added to your calendar BEFORE they will appear in your widget for booking.)
8. Safe and Thorough Customer Data Collection
When a client schedules an appointment, are you finding yourself having to collect more specific data or ask more specific questions beforehand or during the appointment? GigaBook alleviates much of this for you via custom forms. Users can ask these questions during client on-boarding using GigaBook’s custom forms.
Not only can you specify what info you’d like to collect, you can:
- Choose which widget to include custom forms on
- Create your own specific questions
- Add sub-questions based on answers to other questions
- Preview your custom form(s)
- Create titles and descriptions
- Exclude forms from specific widgets
- And more
