A new booking system for Wise Owl course places
If you should book a place on one of our courses online, there is a 50% chance that you will get to use our new booking system:
Click on a button like this next to one of our public courses and you may be taken to the screen below.
We're doing a primitive form of something website gurus call A/B testing, whereby different website users see different results, chosen at random:
About half of people clicking to book a place on a course will see a form like this, whereby they can enter all of their details.
The new website has three main benefits:
|Confidence||The old system uses free-format text boxes; the new one is designed to give people more confidence that their booking really will be entered into our system.|
|Payment||The new system allows purchasers of course places to pay online by card (although companies in the UK can still choose to pay by invoice after the course if they prefer).|
|Private clients||We are intending to let existing clients book their own course places more easily in the future, by logging on and then choosing which employees should attend which courses.|
If you find yourself using our new booking system, we'd love to know what you think!
