ScheduleOnce 6.0 is live – Multi-user and Web conferencing integration

May 10, 2014 · 9 comments

We are happy to announce ScheduleOnce 6.0, enabling multi-user scheduling for all plans and introducing new connectors for GoToMeeting and WebEx.

It is exactly one year since we released ScheduleOnce 5.0 with multi-user support in our higher plans. This has been a great success and has provided our customers with centralized billing, user management, and the ability to use ScheduleOnce in many organizational scheduling scenarios. However, since multi-user scheduling was reserved for the Workgroup and Enterprise plans only, the vast majority of our customers could not take advantage of it.

Release 6.0 marks a strategic change in our approach to multi-user scheduling. Any paid plan will be able to purchase additional user licenses for the same price as individual accounts. For example, if you have a Plus account and are paying $5/month, you can add 5 more users at $5/month per user, for a total of $30/month for 6 users. This is the same price you would have paid for 6 individual Plus accounts. Learn more about our plans and pricing

The second piece of good news is that we have launched a strategic initiative to integrate ScheduleOnce with popular third-party software. For our first step, we have integrated with the leading web conferencing systems – GoToMeeting and WebEx. This integration completely automates the provisioning of web conferencing sessions. Your customers receive a single ScheduleOnce confirmation with all web conferencing and appointment data in their local time zone. This saves precious time, increases participation rates, and conveys a professional image to your customers. Learn more about our web conferencing integration

We are also working on a connector that will enable deep integration with Infusionsoft. The connector is expected to be available in a few weeks. Integration with additional third-party systems will be announced in the coming months. We would love to hear from you about any third-party integration needs.

The last piece of this release is our support for direct credit card processing. (Note that this is about paying for your ScheduleOnce subscription and not about your customers paying you – This will come in a few months.) We know that many of you were not happy with PayPal and neither were we. For those who want to continue paying with PayPal, we have kept things as is. However, the default payment option is now direct credit card payment. We support all major credit and debit cards and also allow you to add a backup card to ensure that your service is never interrupted. You will also notice that we have made many improvements to the purchase process, including automatic generation of an invoice with every new and recurring payment.

To learn more about ScheduleOnce 6.0, please see the What’s new in 6.0 article.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback, we would love to hear it. You can add a comment to this post or use our Contact page.

Hi Guys
Great to hear that you are integrating. Please look into integrating with http://www.Zapier.com. Then all else is easy!
Would absolutely love to be able to easily zap clients into newsletters, my bookkeeping system, etc.
Regards,
Anders.

Love the integration with GoToMeeting. Shame it’s another $10/mth. For some reason I thought it would be included, especially since it’s a nice-to-have, rather than essential – as I can work around it using recurring meetings in GoToMeeting. I love your product and endorse it to my associates regularly, I just don’t love your pricing model. Other apps I use constantly add integrations for FREE so I think you’re bucking the trend by charging more for integrations.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the feedback. Creating a good third-party integration is a costly and complicated project and I don’t know of any serious company that will give that for free.

What most companies do is throw the third-party integration into their most expensive plan. We wanted to offer more flexibility, so that even if you are on a Plus plan which is $5/user/month, you can get the GoToMeeting connector for an additional $10 and your total is $15/user/month, rather than having to upgrade to the Enterprise plan and pay $49/user/month.

Please continue to let us know your thoughts on our software. We value the time you took to let us know.

All the best,
Rami
