They are used for sport like tennis, badminton, squash, bowling. They are also used for court/room booking in multi-sport centres, massages, and saunas. The system allows one booking during the time. It is possible to set-up different prices based on peak or off-peak periods. The system uses different colours, where colours can be different for each person or booking status.
Each lesson does have a set capacity with an optional waitlist. If there a cancellation the first person on the waitlist will get booked with an automated email or SMS. The system can be also set-up that the class would automatically be closed if there not a minimum number of participants.
It is possible to set up courses that would run for a set time, for example, 10 weeks. It is possible to allow booking for the whole course or partially. There is also a make-up feature (replacement sessions) for users who missed a session.

Users can see their booking and credit balance, they can easily cancel a booking and purchase more credits. It is possible to set-up cancellation policies, for example, that user has to cancel booking no later than 8 hours before the start. It is possible to create user groups, each user group can have different prices or booking limits.
Users can create an account and log-in using their Facebook or Google account. It will make the process easier for users. We will not be capturing any personal information.

For individual bookings, it is possible to choose add-ons. For example, for tennis booking, it is possible to add racquets and balls, for multifunction hall it is possible to choose sports.
Multi-function halls; for example, a hall can be used for the whole court of basketball or 2 courts of badminton, the system now sees the relationship between bookings. So if half of the hall is booked it is not possible to book the whole hall. It works vice versa; booking whole hall will disable bookings of badminton spots.
The system allows passes and credits. Credit can be used to pay for bookings and are paid by users upfront. It limits the risk of issues with non-payments and allows users to book easily. Each pass/credit can have an expiry or be without any limits. IF credit balance is low the system sends an automatic email to a user.
Each booking would deduct a credit and it is possible to disable bookings for users without credits. If a user cancels within cancellation policies they will get a refund. Balance and deduction are transparent for users and system administrators.
There are 4 types of credit/passes:
Credit: credit gets deducted for each booking in dollar amounts. Users can purchase or top-up credit.
Visit-based: most commonly used for group classes or creche. Each booking (visit) would decrease the balance by one.
Time-based: this type is based on the amount of time that users book an activity for. For example, 1 hour.
Unlimited/membership-based: users can book as many times as long as their pass is valid, while the overall restrictions still apply (for example, maximum bookings per day or week).
System is integrate with Paypal or Stripe payment gateway. User can pay for credits online and you will recieve funds directly.
