Setting over 50 million appointments with our cutting-edge software shows the ever-growing need business operations have for an online scheduling and booking solution for their customers
Scottsdale, Ariz. (Vocus) September 28, 2010
Appointment-Plus, an industry leader in online appointment-scheduling software since 2001, reached a milestone in August when it surpassed the 50-million mark for number of appointments set by businesses and organizations that utilize its software. This figure puts the Web-based service provider in good company with other universally-recognized products and businesses that have recorded similar numbers, such as the 55 million Smartphones sold during the first quarter of this year and the approximately 55 million members of Costco merchandise warehouses.
It also illustrates the growing need both businesses and their customers have for online appointment-scheduling and reservation-booking software applications.
“Setting over 50 million appointments with our cutting-edge software shows the ever-growing need business operations have for an online scheduling and booking solution for their customers,” says Bob La Loggia, president and founder of StormSource Software, the developer of Appointment-Plus. “Many individuals simply do not have the time to book appointments over the phone during normal business hours, and they want the convenience of online scheduling to easily and quickly schedule these appointments at any hour of the day and from any location.”
Appointment-Plus is online scheduling software that offers businesses and organizations such functionality as online customer self-scheduling, whereby their customers can schedule and manage their appointments and reservations from any Internet connection; automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to a scheduled appointment; online payment options; robust record-keeping and report-generating features; and e-marketing capabilities.
Because of its versatility, Appointment-Plus is the perfect fit for all types of industries and organizations. From photography studios and massage therapists to large shipping operators, universities and Fortune 500 companies, users of the software can tailor its functionality to meet their specific scheduling needs. The online scheduling software service also allows users to create an overall appearance that meshes with their company or organization’s Web site, logo or other marketing images.
As a Web-based application, it’s accessible from any Internet connection and is ideal for individuals who need access to their appointment schedule when away from their home or office. Additionally, Appointment-Plus does not require a Web site, expensive hardware or time-consuming installations to use. Pricing starts at $39 per month with no long-term contracts, along with free set-up assistance with a dedicated coach.
Appointment-Plus in June announced that 10 million unique users have utilized the application since its launch. Factoring in this statistic further proves the importance of Web services in the operations of businesses and organizations.
“Cloud-based applications have become a necessity for business owners and operators to remain competitive,” La Loggia continues. “Their customers are online, and their appointment-scheduling and reservation-booking options need to be as well.”
