What makes VIKING unique

Online booking

Things to know:

  • There is a difference between an online platform and a booking system
  • The goal of a platform is to make the platform as big as possible
  • The goal of a booking system is to help the center

Other platforms in online booking:

  • The student books online
  • The student agrees to THE PLATFORMS Terms and conditions
  • The student PAYS THE PLATFORM
  • The student is added to the platform’s mailing list
  • The student will receive mailings that will direct them to the platform (less conversion for you)
  • The platform then pays the center weekly

This is how the VIKING online booking works:

VIKING is not a platform. You lease VIKING software for your own company. It’s like having custom software built specifically for your center, at a fraction of the cost.

  • Student books multiple lessons online
  • Student agrees to your terms & conditions
  • Student pays directly to you
  • VIKING will charge you after 1 month

Rescheduling

Things to know:

  • Most platforms don’t offer this feature.
  • Some platforms claim they have this feature.

If you need this feature, be careful when deciding. VIKING is built from the ground up to save time.

Other systems in rescheduling:

  • Go to the booking
  • Reschedule the booking
  • Call student #1 if this is okay
  • Call student #2 if this is okay
  • Student #3 can’t on the proposed day, and needs to go into another booking
  • The planner puts the student in the other booking
  • Call student #4 if this is okay
  • Etc.

This is how the VIKING rescheduling works:

  • The planner releases the course(s),
  • The student(s) gets notified
  • The student logs in into his account, and is able to reschedule himself.

Team management

Things to know:

  • Most platforms don’t offer this feature.
  • Some platforms claim they have this feature.

If you need this feature, be careful when deciding. VIKING is built from the ground up to save time.

Other systems in team management:

  • The customers books 1 course (because they can’t book a 5 day course)
  • The center does not know what instructor is available
  • The center contacts instructor #1 – is not available
  • The center contacts instructor #2 – is not available
  • Etc
  • Instructor #4 is available
  • The center now addresses the instructor to the booking
  • Another customer books 1 course
  • Etc.

This is how the VIKING team management works:

  • The admin selects what products the instructor can teach
  • Every team member gets their own login
  • The team member adds his own availability
  • The student books multiple lessons directly onto the instructors availability
  • You sit back, relax and watch the scheduling happen
