Appointy has been around for a very long time, Archive.org suggests 2011 was the starting year for the service. Appointy has been redesigned and rethought several times with an attempt to improve the UI and UX. In truth, they have made progress. The Appointy UI is clean upon first inspection and relatively intuitive. However, once you dive in there are a ton of complex, confusing settings and sub settings and huge sub menus and addons. Basically it is not easy to use. I think a layman user could get away with a simple setup, and a more advanced user could (likely with the help of support) attain comfort with the UI, but it is most certainly a beast.

Appointy does try and tow the line between being a marketing tool, a ticketing tool, a payment tool and a scheduling tool. None of these things are accomplished beautifully.

Taking bookings has always been a total pain for me. My life is chaotic. Trying to work out my diary is horrible. I researched a whole tonne of systems - Acuity was the runner up. But I just didn't like something about their bantery tone. You guys had good reviews. And I thought the price was fair. I LOVE your add ons. I can see how I can grow without a huge jump. And it's so incredibly intuitive. I set the whole thing up in about 6 hours.

Cogsworth is feature-pack and so intuitive to use. Some of the features include multiple services, calendar integration, payment, buffer times, ability to select different types of meeting locations (physical location, online, etc), group bookings and the list goes on! In addition, I love how intuitive the tool is! It's easy to get setup and running FAST!

Makes booking easy with either assigned landing page or easily integrate into own web app. The configs are self-explanatory. Team members (under Staff) and Google calendar sync feature. Another big plus is the email signature which has a CTA to your booking page.

We didn't use anything like Cogsworth - we did this manually, in house. Took a ludicrous amount of time and I would not have known where to even begin looking for a tool like Cogsworth. When I started at Network I knew there was a need, but wasn't familiar with tools like Cogsworth and was too busy doing things manually to research a solution. If it wasn't for my husband casually mentioning he thought Cogsworth would be useful, I would never have known how much time we could save. I wonder if there's a market in organisations that offer training or consulting? If you need a quote or an ambassador to hit up the NFPs, I'm happy to sing your praises. Seriously, I love Cogsworth.
