Appointment-Plus continues to be the online scheduler calendar of choice among service-based businesses and organizations as over 15 million individual users in the United States and 11 other countries worldwide have utilized the software since 2001. The number includes Appointment-Plus clients and their staff, as well as their customers who use the software to schedule and manage appointments online.
The company reached the milestone in late July, approximately one year after hitting the 10-million-user mark.
“Arriving at the 15-million-user mark is another important milestone for our dynamic company,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “The usage rate of the Appointment-Plus system has grown dramatically over the past year, demonstrating our vital role as the leading Web-based provider of scheduling solutions for businesses and organizations of all sizes.”
Appointment-Plus online scheduling calendars provide an expanding array of features beneficial for all service-based organizations, such as:
- Online self-scheduling, whereby individuals can book their own appointments and reservations online, 24 hours a day. This feature also reduces the number of customer phone calls and frees up valuable staff time and resources.
- Automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to scheduled appointment or reservation time.
- Online customer payment processing.
- Robust record-keeping and reporting capabilities.
- E-marketing options through iContact, a perfect way to communicate deals, discounts, promotions and other relevant information to customers.
Appointment-Plus online business calendar is Web-based and requires only an Internet connection to use, without any installations, downloads or additional hardware required. It's also accessible from Internet-ready mobile devices such as SmartPhones, iPads and laptops, making it the perfect application for owners, operators and staff who need the ability to access their schedules from outside the home or office.
Appointment-Plus makes it easy for businesses and organizations to implement online self-scheduling by providing them with their own unique URL that takes customers, clients, students and patients directly to their online business calendar. They can also add an Appointment-Plus-provided “Book Now” button to their Web site, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or other social media page, newsletter or e-mail.
Pricing starts at $39 per month, with no long-term contracts. All signups receive a complementary training session with a professional set-up coach as part of their 15-day free trial period.
“Managing appointments and reservations is a key task for any service-based operation,” La Loggia continues. “That's why owners, operators and staff depend on our innovative and effective software to help them automate, streamline and improve this process.”
