Microsoft Bookings was introduced late last July so companies can manage appointments with their customers. Initially it was available for companies that have the Premium Business subscription of Office 365 in the United States and Canada, being available only through the web. Now Microsoft has announced on its official Office blog that it has begun deploying this service globally to reach all Office 365 Premium Business subscribers around the world.
In addition, with this deployment, they have also launched its mobile application for Android and iOS platforms by which companies can visualize and manage their booking calendars, make new and edit the existing real-time availability, availability of customer lists, contact with them, and even instructions for the next booking.
In this regard, the iOS version is now available from the App Store while the Android version is available from Google Play for the United States and Canada while its global deployment will be made over the coming weeks.
This service also receives other new features, such as the possibility of establishing buffering times to accommodate the times before and after the same reservation in order to give time to prepare, travel, among other things, integration of the calendar of Office 365 with which to carry all those events added to reservations in the service, as well as new options of personalization of the spaces.
With this, Microsoft Bookings prepares to be available globally enabling companies to have a productivity tool with which to efficiently manage appointments with their clients and avoid having to annotate appointments in books, other physical supports, or perform the same operations in other less suitable tools, when offering their respective portfolios of services to their clients.
