Our new staff interface builds on the superior functionality of our system and creates an even more enjoyable and simplistic process for operators and employees.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
Appointment-Plus, the worldwide experts in online scheduling solutions and creators of the scheduling industry’s most flexible and feature-rich application, has announced the release of a new staff administrative interface that provides an enhanced user experience for organizations and their staff.
Sporting a smooth new look and feel while still maintaining the exceptional functionality and basic navigation clients are accustomed to, the new interface also includes beneficial new features that can help them operate more efficiently and effectively.
The latest in a series of features released by Appointment-Plus online appointment software over the past few months, the new user interface anchors the scheduling industry’s most robust collection of plug-ins, such as syncs with QuickBooks and e-marketing providers Constant Contact, iContact, MailChimp and Vertical Response, as well as payment-processing through MerchantWarehouse and the just-released Compensation Calculator that instantly calculates employee compensation in either a flat rate or as a percentage. Upcoming releases include syncs with Google and Microsoft Outlook calendars and an enhanced mobile Web app.
Appointment-Plus makes it easy for its clients to seamlessly and instantly transfer appointment and customer contact information directly between their Appointment-Plus online scheduling software and many of the software applications they already use. They can now quickly access these plug-ins from The Marketplace, a special section of the new user interface that houses the aforementioned features, as well as a point-of-sale (POS) module and calendar exports.
Other features of the new staff administrative interface include:
- A simplified and elegant new look.
- A softer color palette.
- Facebook and Twitter integrations.
- Improved tab navigation.
- Enhanced daily, weekly and monthly appointment displays.
“A positive user experience is important for a scheduling software application to be successful in your operations, both from a customer and staff perspective,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “Our new staff interface builds on the superior functionality of our system and creates an even more enjoyable and simplistic process for operators and employees.”
Unlike other online appointment scheduling software providers that have emerged over the past few years, Appointment-Plus offers unmatched flexibility and customization to create the perfect scheduling solution for all organizations who want to internally optimize their scheduling and appointment processes. As the leader in online appointment software since 2001, Appointment-Plus understands the unique needs businesses have in managing their appointment- and reservation-booking procedures. These include:
- Online self-scheduling, whereby individuals can book their own appointments and reservations when it’s most convenient for them and at any hour of the day.
- Automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to a scheduled appointment or reservation time.
- Robust recordkeeping and reporting capabilities.
Because it’s Web-based, Appointment-Plus online scheduling software requires only an Internet connection to use. No downloads, installations or additional hardware are necessary. Additionally, Appointment-Plus can be accessed from any Internet-connected device, such as laptop computer or smartphone, making it the ideal scheduling solution for individuals needing access to their schedules when away from their home or office.
“Scheduling appointments is just one piece of the business puzzle for service-based organizations,” La Loggia adds. “We’re making it easy for them to integrate their software applications and ace their appointment-scheduling procedures!”
