Genbook Customer Reviews Now Published to Google Places

Scheduling Platform Enhancement Syndicates Local Business Reviews Across the Internet

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Genbook, the leader in Online Appointment Scheduling Software for local businesses, today announced a major enhancement to its scheduling platform that will provide its Merchant users (aka "Genbookers") with another way to grow their businesses. After each appointment, Genbook automatically collects and publishes Reviews from actual and recent customers, who have scheduled their appointments online through Genbook. Genbook Reviews are published to the Merchant's Genbook Scheduling Webpage and are now appearing on Google Places alongside reviews from Yelp, CitySearch, Yahoo! Local, and Groupon, among others.

"Reviews are a great way to promote a business through the testimonials of their satisfied customers. Genbook now optimizes all Customer Reviews for inclusion on Google Places, ensuring our Genbookers are more likely to be found by new customers searching for their services online," said Rody Moore, CEO and Founder of Genbook.

Lana Nester, the owner of Lavish Salon in Tampa, FL, is a long-time Genbooker. "Genbook automatically sends requests to my customers to write Reviews of my service after their appointments. And now my Genbook Reviews are on my Google Places page!" said Ms. Nester.

Genbook helps local businesses connect with existing customers and market their services to new customers searching on the Internet. "Genbook has helped grow my business, and seeing my Genbook Reviews on Google Places is wonderful. Genbook Reviews are always from my recent clients, guaranteeing prospective clients get up-to-date information," said Justin Reali of Kneaded Zen Bodywork in Seattle, WA.

Genbook Reviews, which are submitted by verified customers, are a unique and valuable resource for local businesses. Tiffani Anderson, the owner of Sensational Touch Massage in Upper Marlboro, MD, said, "I have a ton of amazing Genbook Reviews posted on my Google Places Page, which is great and effortless marketing for my business."
