Working with Vivit
Billy wanted to increase the reach of Freedom Surf School and contacted Vivit Booking Solutions to discuss the possibility of taking bookings online through the Freedom website. After discussing the requirements with Billy and gaining more of an understanding about his business needs, Vivit customised the Freedom Surf School website and integrated the booking software, Rezgo, to allow Freedom to take bookings on their website. This allowed Billy to grow his business, saying ‘It has opened up new opportunities to sell our product and exposed us to new clients from Ireland, UK, Europe, U.S and Canada”
One of the key features of working with Vivit is making sure the look and feel of the booking engine matches the main website. This is done seamlessly and means the website maintains a professional look and gives confidence to the customer. It’s not just the booking engine that Billy appreciated – ‘We particularly found their back up service and training to be excellent – the team were willing to help out at any given moment if a problem occurred’.
Working with Vivit meant Billy and Freedom Surf School were able to take advantage of the growing numbers searching and booking activities online. The booking engine and support from Vivit meant Freedom could increase booking and grow the business.
