14 advantages of appointment scheduling software

At the beginning of this post, we talked about the crisis caused by the coronavirus and the changes it has brought to companies. Among them, teleworking, which implies new behaviours and functionalities to adapt to users. Or online appointment booking to avoid physical contact and transfers while speeding up tasks. Appointment scheduling software is a new way of adapting to customer needs, and its main advantages are:

    • Customers can book an appointment online with you any day and any time (24/7).
    • Manage booking services more easily.
    • Store all your customer data in a single, central database.
    • Better coordination of your work.
    • Control and organisation of the weekly and daily agenda in real time.
    • Much more flexibletime management.
    • It is useful for all types of businesses (lawyers, mechanics, personal trainers, private lessons, cleaning services, escape rooms, spas...).
    • You can create time slots connected to location and service.
    • Receive appointment notifications by email (send an email to the client about the creation and update of the appointment, to the employee and to the predefined list of admin users).
    • Connect your Google calendar to the appointment software.
    • Save management time and phone calls- your customers will no longer have to make bookings by phone and this will save time for both of you.
    • Bookings can be cancelled via the email provided.
    • Automate your customers'bookings.
  • And use it on any device (Android, desktop, iOS...).

if you have any doubts, call us.

can customers change their own bookings?

The answer is yes, once they receive the booking confirmation by email, they will also have the possibility to change the time, date or even cancel the appointment if necessary. You will save time for both parties and your customers will be grateful. Therefore, the appointment scheduling software is a very useful tool for your company, whatever your sector.

It will allow you to grow and strengthen your business.
