Everybody wins!"

"We were initially very sceptical as to whether we needed an administration and marketing service at first. However, having a dedicated team looking after the lettings that are customer focused makes a real difference. Enquiries are immediately answered and Information on the lets is freely available for us to scrutinise and authorise. Kajima also look after all our invoicing and safeguarding requirements. Retaining control of who is using our school is very important for us and this is an ideal solution"
"I have found the new booking system, easy to manage and extremely efficient. This was a massive project to get up and running and with the help of the staff to guide us, went remarkably well. The system is now fully functional and we have had very good feedback from the users. It has made my job so much easier as I need to spend very little time with the bookings of sessional spaces now."
"BookingsPlus has become essential in managing our Lettings. The Helpdesk are always available and willing to help - although it is such an efficient, user-friendly system that I have not had much need to contact them!"
"We were looking for a company with a long track record in assisting organisations with school lettings. Initially we were just looking at the software, BookingsPlus. However, soon realised that we didn't have the expertise or the time to devote to increasing our lettings and so we opted for the administration and marketing option to give us the best chance to grow our lettings. "
"We wouldn’t be without BookingsPlus! It has saved us so much time with the speedy invoicing and online payments. We recently had the auditors in who commented that the system was an auditors dream and that they would recommend it to other schools."
"The BookingsPlus team have been truly amazing; their advice, commitment and ongoing support has been exemplary – as a school, we thoroughly recommend Kajima for all your booking management requirements."

"We have searched for several years to find a system to manage the community bookings at the schools we work with. BookingsPlus makes our job much simpler by having all of the required information in one place, which makes it ideal for managing multi-sites. Knowing that the Helpdesk is there on the rare occasion that you may need some support is also an added benefit!"
"BookingsPlus does exactly what it says – it offers real time savings and great value for money."
