We charge a fixed fee for 12 month's service from the time you sign up.
Prices are in New Zealand dollars including GST, depending on the application:
|School-based before/after school care||$295.00|
|Other school-based application||$195.00|
|Other commercial application||$395.00|
The fee allows you to use the service for twelve months from when you signed up,
with no limit on bandwidth, bookings or administration users.
Yes! Simply sign up. We give you a fully-functional
account that expires after seven days, so you can see exactly how it works.
Once you are happy that CareBookings will work for you, simply
go to the payment section of the School settings page and
generate an invoice. Otherwise (after checking with you) we'll
cancel your account.
Yes! CareBookings is great when you need to book things by the day.
Examples include pet care, appointments, yoga classes, facility hire,
or volunteer work. Let us know what you need it for, and we'll show you how
CareBookings can make your life easier.
For event-based applications, our sister site School Interviews will
do what you need. This provides time-based bookings for a given day (or days).
Examples include interview/conference appointments, school photo bookings,
and parent help for sports days or school fairs.
Most people prefer to book online, but you can easily accomodate those that
don't. Our admin interface allows you to make bookings for people over the
phone, or face-to-face. It's just as quick as a paper-based system, but
Just a computer with a browser. CareBookings runs on our servers,
so you don't need to buy, maintain and back up your own machines. Our
service works well with the following browsers:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 7 onwards)
- Google Chrome (all versions)
- Mozilla Firefox (all versions)
- Apple Safari (all versions)
Your information is as safe as we can make it, without imposing draconian
security measures. There are two levels of access:
- Booking - visitors have to enter the booking code to access booking
functions. The booking code has over 33 million possible values, so the
chances of a casual visitor stumbling on the one for your provider is remote.
Even if they did, they would only be able to book spurious interviews - they
could not access anyone else's personal information without cracking another
code with over a hundred thousand billion values.
- Administration - the provider office staff use a secure login system
to access administration functions. This is designed according to internet best
practices, including an automatic lockout after ten failed login attempts.
Our system is designed so we never see your password. However, if you
contact us we'll reset it to a temporary new password, so you can log in.
Once you're in, you can then change the password again, to something memorable
for you. We recommend choosing a word or phrase that means something to you, and
then adding one or two numbers or symbols, like "!" or "+". So something like
"squash:club!" makes an excellent password (except that everyone has seen it now,
so please don't use that one!).

Most missing emails turn up in spam folders, so check there first. Then
check you entered your email address correctly - we've had many red faces
because of this. To check, use the same computer to go back to our website,
and enter the booking code again. This will show you your booking summary page,
where you can check your email address and resend the booking confirmation.
If neither of these is the problem, unfortunately we can't help you much
further. We have no control over the ISP or company mail servers that relay your messages,
so although we log your email being sent we can't guarantee delivery.
Customer Data. We have to hold some information about the provider and
the people who book to provide our service. We treat this information as the
provider's property - you have trusted us to hold it and we will protect it to
the best of our ability, but it is not ours to sell or give to anyone else.
No Spam. We will only use your email address to contact
you about matters relating directly to CareBookings.
Cookies. We use a cookie to allow people to re-enter our site
without re-authentication. This cookie consists of a single random identifier
and no personal information. It is also optional - if you have disabled cookies,
CareBookings will continue to work fine, except you'll have to re-auenticate
each time you access the service.
