Scheduling Appointments Online
In the past, most offices had a receptionist whose responsibilities included scheduling appointments for clients, customers, or patients, but with the increase in one-person businesses, as well as automated attendants in larger offices, this is seldom the case any more. As a result, if you are working with a client when a call comes in, you have to choose between interrupting your work to deal with the call, or letting the caller leave a voice mail message and hoping you'll be able to connect with them before they decide to book their appointment with your competitor.
You can save valuable time and reduce the risk of losing business by using an online appointment booking system such as Global Appointment Service. Simply enter your hours of operation and available staff, and clients or patients can visit the site to schedule or cancel their own appointments. The service will easily pay for itself, as the time you currently spend booking appointments and making reminder calls will be freed up to serve additional clients. In addition to the hosted version, Global Appointment Service offers standalone software which may be installed on your own website. Visit their website to view the online demo or download a 30 day trial.
