Your business, your bookings

by Ed Scott

We are delighted to announce the launch of the new and improved eola booking widget.

85% of bookings come outside of working hours. The eola booking widget handles the entire booking process for you 24/7, from prospect to payment, via your own website.

We spent the last twelve months rebuilding our booking widget from the ground up. Our new widget makes it easier than ever for customers to find what they want and complete a purchase, resulting in increased conversion rates directly from your website.

A streamlined booking experience

With our widget, your customers can easily book on any device, anywhere. That’s because we build with speed and efficiency in mind. The new widget is more than five times faster than our previous widget, with an industry-leading page loading time of just 0.1 seconds.

Why so fast?

Not everyone has ultra-fast broadband. Just like the rest of the eola platform, our widget works in low internet environments, and on older, slower devices. 

By using our widget, your customer base is not defined by technological limitations, so you can increase conversion rates and drive bookings.

Tested by humans

When booking an experience, customers have to make a number of decisions in a relatively short amount of time. We analysed millions of interactions mediated by our old widget, and used that information to redesign our booking flows with simplicity and accessibility in mind. 

We then tested these booking flows on real people. We spoke to people from all ages and backgrounds, with varying levels of digital literacy. When they encountered an issue or weren’t sure how to proceed, we made sure to address those issues in our next design phase. 

The end result is a booking flow that gathers all the information you need as an experience provider, whilst remaining accessible and intuitive for the customer. 

Find out more about how we designed our new widget from our product manager Jamie.
