Melbourne International Coffee Expo 2012 & Australian Barista competition

I thought it was a great opportunity to write about booking services for Barista training as this weekend is the Melbourne International Coffee Expo 2012 & Australian Barista competition at the Royal Melbourne show grounds.

I was lucky enough to visit yesterday and see the semi finals. I must say the competition is very technical. If this was an IT competition it would be a geek convention. Coffee Geeks must rule in Melbourne. Hope the best Barista wins....

I sampled a few coffees at the Veneziano stand and it was the best coffee I have had this year.

I bet all people would love to get some training from these great  Barista's and that is where bookitlive connects with coffee. 

Improve your business brew

Barista training is a hands-on business, and time away from the coffee machine is money down the drain. With bookitlive booking software, you’re free to focus on the coffee.

The right blend
bookitlive allows baristas-in-training to book sessions with you online, and lets you easily make, change and track your bookings. Manage your client database, track staff performance, advertise online and much more. The Group Booking feature is perfect for training sessions: define the number of people attending, adjust participant levels and take multiple bookings for the same timeslot. 

Tamping out the no-shows
With bookitlive, you can opt to have an automated SMS reminder sent to the client the day before an appointment. You'll quickly notice the decrease in costly no-shows and tardy clients.

An espressly mobile lifestyle
As a barista trainer you’re often visiting cafés and restaurants for onsite training. bookitlive software is smartphone compatible, so wherever you are your business is with you.

You deal with the daily grind; let bookitlive handle the scheduling.
