Appointment-Plus, the worldwide experts in online scheduling solutions and creators of the scheduling industry’s most flexible and feature-rich application, now makes it easy for organizations to compute employee compensation for services performed with its new Compensation Calculator. Released today, the new feature automatically calculates employee compensation and sales commission based on either a percentage or a flat rate.
Like other plug-ins, syncs, modules and features offered by Appointment-Plus online scheduling software, the new Compensation Calculator helps organizations of all sizes operate more efficiently by automating an oftentimes burdensome and time-consuming task. Instead of manually extracting data from spreadsheets, work logs and files and plugging in numbers in a calculator or bookkeeping program, Appointment-Plus users can now quickly generate accurate compensation figures instantly right through their online scheduler.
Users simply choose the percentage or flat rate option and then enter the required information. The system then automatically computes and records the compensation amounts.
The new Compensation Calculator also makes it easy to track data and quickly pull employee compensation reports.
The Compensation Calculator is an optional plug-in available to all Appointment-Plus client accounts. Among the service-based organizations that can benefit from this new feature include:
- Massage facilities.
- Salons, both single and multiple locations.
- Athletic clubs and personal trainers.
“Just like managing appointments in the old traditional way, calculating employee compensation can be a tedious process,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “With Appointment-Plus, organizations can not only improve the manner in which they book their services, they can now easily calculate and track compensation for the employees that perform them.
“It’s the latest feature in an expanding line of solutions offered through our industry-leading appointment scheduling software that helps organizations transform their booking processes.”
Unlike other scheduling applications that have entered the market over the past few years, Appointment-Plus is the most flexible and customizable scheduling application available and lets users tailor the program to best fit their own unique booking needs, whether it’s for 1,000 locations or just a single site.
A leader in online scheduling software since 2001, Appointment-Plus online appointment software gives organizations the tools they need to automate, streamline and improve the booking process. The feature-rich system offers such functionality as:
- Online self-scheduling, which gives individuals the ability to schedule their own appointments and reservations when it’s most convenient for them, 24 hours a day.
- Automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to a scheduled appointment or reservation time and which can reduce the number of “no-shows” by over 50 percent.
- Robust record-keeping and reporting capabilities.
Additionally, Appointment-Plus also provides the scheduling industry’s most extensive collection of plug-ins, integrations, module and other features that lets users take their scheduling to the next level. This includes syncs with QuickBooks and e-marketing providers Constant Contact, iContact, MailChimp and Vertical Response, as well as payment-processing through MerchantWarehouse. Future releases include syncs with Google and Microsoft Outlook calendars and an enhanced mobile Web app.
Being Web-based, all that’s required to use the Appointment-Plus online scheduling system is an Internet connection. No installations, downloads or additional hardware are necessary. Appointment-Plus is also accessible from laptops, smartphones and other Internet-connected devices, a real benefit for owners and operators that need access to their appointment and reservation schedules when away from the home or office.
“Online scheduling is one important piece of the operations puzzle,” La Loggia explains. “With our expanding array of new features and plug-ins, we’re the only online scheduling provider that helps organizations fill in the rest of that puzzle.”
