As this package is only a bit over 1 year old, I feel OS Service Booking has a good chance to become the top Booking System for Joomla. Keep up the good work!
The extension is now into version 2.1 and it is clear that in not too long time it will be the best joomla booking extensions in its class. I recommend to everybody to buy this extension. I am sure that even if some of the functionallity of the bigger (and much more expensive !) extensions is not available right now, just ask the developer and it will be available on short notice. Thus making it very soon one of the better programs.
About the support: I've been working with Joomla and commercial components for years now. I have truly never encountered such good support. I've been testing payment plugins for OS Services Booking with Dam while on the other end of the world and it's a true pleasure to work with. Next to the great support he is open for suggestions that may improve the component.
The thing that impressed me most though was the customer service I received. I didn't know how to make changes to the look and feel - which is almost certainly due to lack of joomla knowledge on my part - and instead of brushing me off the guys here actually made the edits for me on my site. This was so far beyond what I would expect from extension support. Very cool.
From a happy customer :)
On the plus point they did respond to my questions quickly even if just to say 'no' and they did refund my money due to the Google Calendar issue. so as mentioned elsewhere, give it a go and see if it works or not for you. If it had the polish of other products from this company it could be great.
I had one problem with integration and graphic display that the team helped resolve quickly and efficiently, and had the issue resolved within 48 hours. As a programmer myself, I prefer to try and use and adapt free plug-ins where I can, but this one is certainly well worth the price.
I selected this product (OS Services Booking) because of the affordable price and all the good reviews. I have not been disappointed.
The program has a lot of options and so you may have to fool around with it to get it as you would like. We also ran into an odd problem (that proved difficult to reproduce) and so I added Dang Thuc Dam to skype, and at about 9pm EST that same day, he accepted and asked how he could help. I explained the problem, he recognized it and then he worked on it (had to give him user accounts). About 45 minutes later it was done and the hiccup was resolved.
Summary: Very nice product (affordable and lots of options) and very nice support (quick and effective). What more do you need?
