Home service providers and contractors devote countless hours and extreme focus to ensure excellent work for their clients
Scottsdale, Ariz. (Vocus) June 17, 2010
Home projects never take a summer vacation. In fact, many homeowners schedule these services during this time of year, as well as plan for fall and winter preventive maintenance services. Thanks to online appointment-scheduling solutions from Appointment-Plus, maintenance professionals and contractors nationwide are spending less time managing their appointment schedule and more time on-site with their clients.
From roofing contractors and window installers to air conditioning technicians and cleaning services, a wide array of home service providers turn to Appointment-Plus for their service scheduling needs. A leader in online booking software since 2001, it's the perfect tool to help these individuals and groups automate and streamline their appointment-scheduling procedures.
Requiring only an Internet connection to access and manage, the online scheduler offers such functionality as: “point-and-click” screen scheduling; online self-scheduling, whereby clients can schedule and manage their appointments and reservations online at their own convenience, 24 hours a day; automated e-mail and text message reminders sent to customers prior to their scheduled appointments; online payment options; e-marketing capabilities; and accurate recordkeeping and report-generating capabilities.
“Home service providers and contractors devote countless hours and extreme focus to ensure excellent work for their clients,” says Bob La Loggia, president and founder of StormSource Software, the developer of Appointment-Plus. “Appointment-Plus helps these individuals better manage this important, yet time-consuming, task and improve the overall efficiency of their operations.”
Thanks to its versatility, the schedule software is applicable to many different industries and services and allows its users to tailor its design to best fit their specific needs. Industries that currently rely on Appointment-Plus for booking their services include air conditioning and heating maintenance and repair, roofing services, cleaning services, carpet installation and cleaning, kitchen remodeling and repair, plumbing services and window installation and maintenance.
Because it’s Web-based, Appointment-Plus doesn’t require costly hardware or program installations. Users simply access their scheduler securely and effortlessly through any Internet connection, a real plus for providers who manage their appointments from home, on-site and other locations outside their office.
Additionally, home service professionals and contractors that utilize the online self-scheduling feature can expect a significant drop in the number of phone calls from clients seeking to schedule service appointments by directing them to their scheduler. This functionality is especially beneficial if the professional does not have an office or receptionist and routinely takes phone calls from job sites and during non-business hours.
“Our self-scheduling functionality puts the power of appointment-booking into the hands of customers,” La Loggia adds. “Imagine the convenience to you and your clients of automatically accepting and booking appointments 24 hours a day.
“It’s a win-win for everyone.”
