If you run or are part of a business that entertains clients by appointment only, such as a clinic, salon or consultancy, you know how difficult it is to keep staff and visitors on track — you not only have to schedule appointments, but also avoid clashes, remind clients to show up and stay sane enough to make your sessions worthwhile. A secretary could surely make light work of this, but what’s a professional to do if he/she can’t afford to pay another employee’s full salary?
For starters, you might want to try Ubooq, a new service that lets your clients see when you’re available, book appointments and receive reminders via text message — all from your website or standalone booking page. Meanwhile, you’ll get notified of new bookings and stay on top of things, allowing you to deliver the best possible service your customers have ever experienced. Sounds too good to be true? Let’s see if Ubooq is really up to the task.
Running a service business? Then you might understand the need for a robust appointment scheduling solution. Appointments, if mishandled, will end up making the customer furious and lead to under utilization of your resources. In both cases, there s a very good chance that your bottomline gets hurt.
Deploying an online appointment scheduling app will benefit both you and your customers. Coconut Calendar is one such web app that works to maximize your schedule with the least amount of downtime. After the break, let us go over the steps to create an effective appointment booking setup.
Running a business requires a lot of skills. If your business is in the service vertical, the margins might be higher but certain special skills are required to ensure the smooth running of the business. A lot of human touch is involved in the services industry both on the customer and employee fronts. Failure to handle and balance both of them means lost opportunities and bad word of mouth.
Appointments help the employees from burning out and the customers from waiting in a line. With SnapAppointments, customers can schedule their own appointments online 24/7 in just seconds.
When you’re too busy working to run a business, it can be hard to personally remember each and every one of those scrap pieces of paper with your upcoming appointments on them. This can often lead to bigger problems like missing appointments, losing deals and in the worst possible case, it could cause a really bad headache. Unless you’ve actually remembered your scheduled trip to the pharmacy to pick up painkillers, it isn’t going away any time soon.
