Meeting team targets, increased profit and easier business planning is just three benefits of a strong re-booking rate. Let’s dive a little deeper into the benefits to your business of setting targets and ways to increase your rate with SAM©.

What is a Re-booking?

In SAM© re-bookings are new appointments booked at the time of checkout or within 24 hours of receiving the service. If a customer calls to make a booking for the same service after this time the appointment is recorded as a new appointment for reporting purposes.
