LIV Xperience is our unmatched Condo Management tool providing fully digital online programming. Within the LIV X app that comes with our management program is an online scheduler that we use throughout our managed facilities across Canada for amenities scheduling including squash courts, meeting rooms, classes, socials, leagues, and more.

LIV-X Scheduler can provide your condominium with a tool for all residents to remotely book pool times, gym times, BBQ times, Theatre rooms, and any other amenity in your building. If your pools (outdoor and indoor) or fitness rooms are being serviced by LIV North, this modified scheduling service will be provided at no cost until September to get everyone through the summer. If you are interested in our full line of service and facility management programs please contact: sales@livnorth.com

LIV X app allows spaces to be booked online, without human contact. If the time slot is not available the system immediately puts the user onto a waiting list and notifies them if there is a cancellation.

STEP 1: Free download of LIV X app (instructions below)
