After finding out about TryBooking at a schools’ conference before the pandemic, Shirley Bouwer says it’s taken a while to get up and running due to the disruption following COVID-19. Shirley was looking for a booking platform that could manage ticketing for their school performance of Made in Dagenham, but she also organised parent evenings and other school-related events.

When asked for feedback about her TryBooking experience, Shirley described the platform as ‘really easy and intuitive’ and loved the excellent customer service she received, ‘thank you for touching base and for answering questions quickly. The FAQ and Learning Centre are also really helpful and it was easy to find information.’ 

Our useful Learning Centre is available to all account holders from within their accounts but is also on our website to help with any questions from prospective customers. It hosts a range of how-to articles, videos and guides to help make events the best they can be. We appreciate that it is not always convenient to call or email, as Shirley found, and have found that our Learning Centre helps to answer most quick questions.

Shirley initially opened her TryBooking account to help with, ‘theatre style tickets with individual seat booking, as that's the feature that was most important to us, but the easy processing of payments and the myriad of excellent reports has been the big surprise winner for me.’ Coupled with the fact that TryBooking had been recommended by other schools, she was also pleased to find that we charge lower fees than many of our competitors. We strive to keep our pricing simple and transparent so that there are never any nasty surprises! No sign-up fees, no monthly payments and we don’t hold any functionality back – what you see is what you get.

‘The ease of setting up an event, and the fact that I didn't then need to touch it again apart from the odd refund and checking on the reports was a revelation. Previously we've manually managed ticket sales and it's been a time-taking nightmare. The time saved and the reliability of the system was a game changer!’.

This is one of the most common responses we get when asked how TryBooking makes your life easier. Being able to save time and admin for busy teachers, parents, business owners is one of our many selling points and one that we are thanked for time and time again.
