SAN FRANCISCO, CA and EVERGREEN, CO, Aug 13, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) — Genbook, the category-leading company delivering appointments to small businesses across the web, today announced an exclusive scheduling service partnership with Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) and Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP). The joint agreement will give ABMP and ASCP members the ability to integrate Genbook’s easy-to-use BookNow! button, scheduling system, and fully customizable service menu into their websites. These features will be included in the websites that both associations offer at no cost to their members, as well as on separate member sites hosted anywhere on the web.
“We are excited that Genbook was chosen by these leading associations to be their sole provider,” said Rody Moore, Genbook’s CEO and founder. “We have seen rapid adoption of Genbook by massage and skin care professionals across the U.S. and know our product is a great fit for practices looking to grow their business and maximize their presence online.”
“We believe Genbook is the best scheduling solution for massage and skin care professionals, with its intuitive, user-friendly features and ability to have immediate impact on a practice,” said Katie Armitage, executive director of ABMP and president of ASCP. “We look forward to enhancing our members’ websites with BookNow! buttons, which will save busy practitioners from the hassles of scheduling and deliver them more clients.”
Association members will have access to all of the features of Genbook Standard, which include email alerts, customer feedback forms, customizable service menus, SMS messages when a client books, iCal integration, customer credit card capture, and a client database, all at a 15% discount on the usual $39.95 per month service charge. Massage and skin care professionals can also enroll in the scaled-down Genbook Free at absolutely no charge. It allows them to offer, accept and manage appointments from their websites, but without the money-making and time-saving features that have made Genbook Standard the industry leader.
