OverviewBack to top
More and more, tourism businesses are moving away from traditional brick-and-mortar home offices to location-based satellite offices, often with very little in the way of computers and booking facilities.
Wouldn't it be great if you could make bookings and manage customers from your mobile phone while renting out surfboards on the beach?
Well, with Checkfront, you can do just that!
After downloading and installing the iOS Mobile Booking App onto your mobile device, you can instantly access your bookings and customer information. Moreover, you can create new bookings directly from your device, taking your business wherever you go.
The best part is you don't need to be near a computer terminal. You're good to go if your mobile device has battery power and an internet connection. You can even use the device's camera to scan the QR Code on your Customer's invoice, instantly checking them in for their booking.
Awesome, right? If this all sounds like the perfect complement to your business strategy, then read on, and we show you how to use the FREE iOS Mobile Booking app.
Version 2.0 of our iOS booking app can be downloaded from the App Store and works with your iPhone, iPad, or iPad Touch running iOS 9 or greater. Anybody downloading the app onto a device running an earlier version of iOS receives the previous version of the software.
