They will see the Free promotion when they put in the Promo Code… Done!

INTEGRATION WITH SERVICE MONSTER

FittleBug instantly syncs calendars with ServiceMonster, reducing administration time, cost and frustration of double entry.

Both Steve Mastio (maker of FittleBug) and Joe Kowalski (maker of ServiceMonster) strive to bring empowering products to the carpet cleaning industry. With the latest version of FittleBug consumers can book you online and NOW all the information flows immediately into your ServiceMonster software. Don’t worry about having to update both calendars. If you need to change the time or date of an appointment in ServiceMonster, it automatically updates your online calendar of availability to the consumers on FittleBug. If you don’t have or need Service Monster, just keep track of your appointments with the FittleBug calendar.

Think how nice it would be to just clean and not worry about administration scheduling.
