banner

Easily run your massage therapy business with free online scheduling, credit card processing, and more from the ABMP PocketSuite Signature Edition!

ABMP has partnered with PocketSuite to bring you a customized, easy-to-use online massage booking app that lets you focus on what matters most—your clients.

Businesses on PocketSuite see an average 30% increase in earnings, and you can get set up in 15 minutes by choosing from curated pre-loaded settings, or customizing the app for your practice.

The ABMP PocketSuite Signature Edition gives you:

  • A free online scheduling tool, so your clients are empowered to book a session through your website or booking link.
  • HIPAA-compliant intake forms and contracts, automatically sent to clients and safely stored for easy management.
  • Credit card payment invoicing and point-of-sale charging, with suggested gratuity (which clients actually appreciate!).
  • Automatic appointment and rebooking reminders.
  • Cancellation policy enforcement for those last-minute no-shows.
  • Easy-to-use tools to help you run your business more simply and efficiently.

How easy is it to get Pocketsuite up and running? Easy! PocketSuite set-up generally takes about 15 minutes. ABMP has provided default content and forms that you can use as-is or customize, and you can add your own content anytime. If you have any questions or are looking for some direction, you can schedule a call with PocketSuite support or text them just by clicking the messages icon within the app. And when you're ready to import your client contacts, PocketSuite will take care of it for you! 

If PocketSuite is really free, why do I see premium, paid-for options? ABMP has partnered with PocketSuite to provide you with a signature edition of the app that is packed with free online booking and business management tools. And if you decide you need advanced tools, like the ability to sell packages or subscriptions, you do have an option to upgrade to a premium, paid version. However, there is no upgrade required, ever. Your baseline version of PocketSuite is completely free with your ABMP membership. 

PocketSuite is asking for some personal information; is this safe and legitimate? You are wise to ask, and yes, it's all on the up-and-up. Specific information, like a driver's license, is required to ensure identity (you are who you say you are), which is required for you to be paid out through the app. 

Access your free ABMP PocketSuite Signature Edition now and get your massage therapy business running smoothly and profitably!
