Hi Butterfly!

I figure I would add to what stonegirl said about stock photos. There are several stock photo sites that you can use to help you out. Some of these sites will let you download pics for free and others will only let you download the photo for a price. There are quite a few sites out on the web, but here are a few you can review:

http://www.istockphoto.com/
http://www.shutterstock.com/
http://www.corbisimages.com/
http://www.dreamstime.com/
http://us.fotolia.com/
http://www.gettyimages.com/
http://www.photocase.com/
http://depositphotos.com/

If you don't want to use any of these sites, then the other option is to pay for a professional photographer or do the photos yourself. If you do the photos yourself then there are several filtering tools that you could use to help you develop them:

http://www.picfull.com/
http://www.picmonkey.com/
http://pixlr.com/o-matic/
http://www.instantretro.com/
http://www.rollip.com/

Well, I hope this helps you out!

Just found this online community by mistake and I'm glad I did...

Been using this software for the last week and of the 4 that I'm testing, this is the one I'm going with. Email and online help has been very quick. Software is easy to use. Hopefully in a week I'll be fully online...bye, bye paper!

Can't wait to browse this site and contribute to the community.

Any chance you'll eventually have a full CD one can purchase that is not online based, but PC based? I plan to purchase new software at the end of the year. I'd much prefer to send my money in your direction, instead of to someone I don't know (most likely the update version of Massage Office), if possible.

Thanks in advance. :)

Aw, thanks Pueppi - that's very thoughtful of you. Unfortunately, we're only planning to do web-based. I will definitely let you know if we change our plans on that, but it's unlikely as my husband is a web developer - so web-based software is kinda what he does!

Hello, I run a small massage business with over 15 MT, 9 available rooms. I need scheduling software that has backoffice capability to schedule clients with requested MT without having the customer believing that he/she is cheduling with a specific MT (as my independent MT make their own schedules spontaneously, subject to changes at any time) and I don't want client frustrations. Some of my rooms are set up to accommodate requests from couples to be massaged in same room. Thus, I need clients to be able to schedule appointments (for available time durations). And, most important, I need to be able to set the number of available concurrent appointments separately for each day (such as 7 on weekends and 5 on Mondays & Fridays, and 3 on Tuesdays - Thursdays). Also, I would like to integrate online Credit Card payments (at the time of booking appointments, or on iPad or Mac at conclusion of massage, as well as online purchase of gift certificates. Lastly, I would love to see coupon claim redemption for Yelp and Groupon Deals.

What can you provide now, and are their plans to include the other request options I have listed above?

Thank you.

Hi Aswan,

Thank you for your feedback. We are considering some of the above features, however, it would be a ways in the future as right now we are focusing on optimizing the system for our solo therapist members. I will definitely post here when I have more of an update on the features you mentioned.
Thanks!

It been about a year since I asked. Any chance your hubby is working on a PC based option yet?

Thanks for checking in Pueppi.

It's not looking like a direction we will be taking at this time... The way the system is built is really all designed to work together online. For a desktop version, we would basically have to build a whole different system entirely - and there just hasn't been much demand for that.
