Nutshell Scheduler vs. Picktime comparison

If you’re searching for efficient and affordable scheduling software, you may have started considering Picktime. Despite its affordable pricing, Picktime lacks sales integration and has limited seats and virtual appointment spaces. The option for unlimited locations and spaces is only available behind their most expensive plan. Therefore, it may not be the best option for your business, even when you’re looking for a budget-conscious scheduler.

Nutshell Scheduler is the Picktime alternative that offers all the appointment management and sales integration features your team needs to optimize every meeting. Plus, Nutshell Scheduler is priced for your entire team and offers unlimited appointment spaces, no upgrade needed.

See how these appointment scheduling tools stack up and learn why Nutshell Scheduler is the best meeting scheduler platform.

Sales integration—so each booking adds to your understanding of every relationship

Nutshell Scheduler works natively with Nutshell CRM, so it’s easy to see the complete picture of every relationship as you make appointments.

First, you can easily link Nutshell forms in your scheduler to gather information about your prospects before meeting with them.

Once someone submits a form, Nutshell will automatically create a new Person, Company, or Lead for them based on your preferences. Then, you can go to their page in Nutshell to see all your information about them, including a complete timeline of every interaction they’ve had with your team, from meetings and form submissions to email opens and clicks.

Next, Nutshell also makes it easy to report on your bookings.

Choose an activity type for each scheduler, whether a virtual meeting, phone call, demo, or a custom activity type you create. Once you log the booking as an activity, you can report on those activities in your Nutshell reports for seamless oversight into team productivity.

If you want Picktime to sync in your CRM and enhance your understanding of customer relationships, you’ll have to juggle an integration with Zapier. That means you’ll be working without a complete view of your clients and prospects. Not to mention, the only Picktime plan that supports Zapier integration is their most expensive Pro plan.

Unlimited virtual appointment spaces—create as many meetings as you need

When opening up your schedule to meet with prospects and customers, you need complete control over your availability.

To give you autonomy over your bookings, Nutshell Scheduler lets your team create unlimited scheduler appointments of unlimited types with no team restrictions. So whether your team works internationally or all in the same city, offers one product or multiple types of services, you’re in charge of your scheduler appointment availability.

Picktime limits the number of locations you can access, with unlimited locations only available for selected plans. You can see why the initial free pricing may seem deceptive—many crucial features for online scheduling are limited and hidden behind the paywall of a plan upgrade.

Pricing per company, not per seat—let your entire team book meetings

At Nutshell, we realize that a lot of people on your team may need to book appointments, whether it’s your sales reps, customer success team, marketers, or executives. It’s why Nutshell Scheduler is priced for your entire company, not per seat. For just $37 per month, you can give everyone on your team the ability to create and book appointments.

Picktime is priced per seat, meaning you’ll have to pay extra to allow everyone to schedule meetings. Depending on your team’s size and needs, this could get expensive quickly.

All our scheduling features—for every plan

Picktime hides important features, namely calendar syncing, integration with popular meeting software such as Zoom and Google Meet, and email reminders, behind a paywall. For a meeting scheduler tool, the lack of these features greatly handicaps functionality and forces users to purchase the paid Picktime plan—despite the company advertising itself as free scheduling software.

All Nutshell Scheduler customers get all of these features—and more. Create co-hosted online meetings, add custom forms to your scheduler, send booking confirmation and reminder emails, and get live chat support from our helpful support team.
