How do I contact the client? When is the best time to contact the client?

Modified on Wed, 29 May at 7:25 PM

TABLE OF CONTENTS


Please note that our system sends automated notifications (email, in-app push notification, or text message) to clients when:

  • they first place their booking request online,

  • their booking is accepted by a service provider,

  • their service provider taps the "On my way" button in the app,

  • and when the job is "Completed" by the service provider in the Blys Pro app.


You also don’t need to send a courtesy confirmation to the client after you accept the job. As outlined above, that’s handled by our platform.


The idea here is to ensure we don’t create unnecessary texts/calls back and forth between the client and the provider. One of Blys’ core promises to the clients is that we offer a seamless booking experience that removes the need to make calls to service providers. Our vision for Blys is – to make getting a professional service a 1-hour process. Minimising communication between clients and providers is an important part of that promise.


Message the client

  • You can contact the client from the "Message" option which is available in your app when it's 48 hours before the booking starts time for all services.



  • You can see the list of frequently used messages to quickly send to the client by clicking on "+" or you can manually type them on the field and send them.




  • You can also send images to the client via chat

Call the client

  • You should tap "On my way" once you're on your way to the client's address.
  • After you press on your way, you will have the option to call the client.




Direct Bookings


Before accepting a direct booking request, you can also chat directly with your clients to offer alternative dates in case you are not available within their preferred time.


(This feature is available for Direct Bookings of clients to a service provider)


  • Go to "Rebooking Requests"
  • Click on "Message"
