VANCOUVER, British Columbia, August 10, 2017
Yocale, a leading scheduling software, has collaborated alongside Google to launch Reserve with Google.
Reserve with Google makes it easier for Google users to find new beauty services and fitness classes in their area and to book these appointments quickly and easily through Google’s search results and Google Maps.
They get to see real-time availabilities right from Google.
From a business perspective, Reserve with Google will allow businesses to increase their visibility and radically increase their bookings by taking advantage of Google’s massive user base.
Users will now see a “Book Now” button instead of a standard business name and contact number, which will act as a call-to-action. Users can book these services with the click of a single button.
If you consider that 90% of online searches cause people to make a specific action within 5 to 10 minutes means that this partnership is a major development for local businesses.
Online search powers and drives businesses today. People are finding the services they need through powerhouse search engines like Google.
Reserve with Google puts local businesses out in front. Visibility increases, bookings increase and businesses grows.
Yocale’s co-founder and CEO, Arash Asli, says that “We are creating a unique and effective marketing engine that Beauty/Fitness & Wellness businesses can use to enhance their brand and connect to a larger audience of high-value customers.”
This service is completely free of charge. All you need to do is sign up for Yocale’s free scheduling software, which you can do here.
How Reserve with Google Works
Reserve with Google is simple for both members and businesses. For members, they just have to search for a specific business or service through Google (either Google Search, Google Maps or the Reserve with Google website).
Google will show them all of their options along with real-time availabilities. All they need to do is click on the time that suits their schedule. They also have the option to pay for the service through Google as well.
If the user searches for a specific business, the Google Business listing will have a “Book Now” button. If the user uses Google Wallet and has their credit card information stored with them, they can use that to pay.
This adds even more convenience to the booking process, which again serves to increase bookings for businesses.
Once the transaction is complete, the booking goes straight to the businesses’ schedule – it’s that instant. The booking will send out a confirmation e-mail/text, along with reminders of upcoming appointments to both parties.
What Businesses Can Benefit?
Initially, Reserve with Google will be open to Yocale’s users based in the United States who have beauty or wellness-based businesses.
If you have a salon, spa, a gym, a yoga center, a meditation center or another beauty or wellness-based business, you will be able to benefit from this partnership.
Eventually, every appointment-based appointment will be able to benefit from Reserve with Google. Check back in with Yocale for any major developments.

As a result, businesses become a premium service provider in the process. Many businesses are realizing this, which means that online bookings are quickly becoming a necessity. Businesses need to offer this service to become competitive in the marketplace.
