Customer portal

Ensuring a seamless self-service experience for the teams and clubs from your local community the Customer Portal allows them to easily view and manage their bookings, make payments and access payment plans as well as place new booking requests online. 

This saves your staff precious time on tedious administrative tasks.

Instant block bookings and payment plans

Online Block Bookings lets customers make repeat and block bookings through the booking calendar widget on your website for your approval. It moves you away from the manual block booking process, and brings an end to the constant back and forth between you and your customers to find the right dates and times for them.

Less checking dates, less invoicing, less hassle.

This reduction in admin related tasks allows your council to focus on more important priorities, increasing productivity, and saving the council money.

Variable VAT rate

The variable VAT rates feature allows council venue managers to set up different VAT rates based on different price schemes, which can then be applied to different facilities. Previously, the VAT rate was set at the venue level, regardless of the facility booked. This feature gives you more flexibility and control over the VAT rates that are applied to different facilities.

Focus Feature

Receiving B Corp certification showcases our continued commitment to the social impact Bookteq powered by Playfinder is having on people’s health and wellbeing.

We remain dedicated to building a world where everyone has equal access and opportunity to sports facilities; enabling people to get active and keep healthy, and helping schools, councils, and sports clubs to open up their facilities to the public and have a lasting impact in their communities.

“The Football Foundation has appointed Playfinder to supply smart access and integrated booking systems for the pilot phase of its PlayZones programme.

Playfinder will provide its Lockteq access solution to PlayZones and, alongside its Bookteq booking system, will offer a reservation system which enables players to have access to facilities using a unique access code.” – Sports Nation (Issue 6, 2022)

With 12 sites operating across their parks and open spaces areas, including football pitches, cricket pitches and tennis courts, Ealing Council needed a smart and easy-to-use online booking system that would make their sport facilities more accessible to the public and encourage utilisation of their outdoor sports venues throughout the borough.

The day-to-day running of these venues was also costing the council valuable time and resources by having to manually take bookings and chase debtors. They needed a way to free up time for their staff, so that they could focus on other important aspects of venue management. Within 1 year of using Bookteq and Playfinder, Ealing Council had increased venue utilisation by 45%, grown their year-on-year revenue by over £10,000, and cut admin time and saved staff countless hours.
