The new Location Lookup is another valuable benefit in making the scheduling process easy for both business and customer alike.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 28, 2012
Appointment-Plus, the worldwide expert in online appointment book software and creator of the scheduling industry’s most flexible and feature-rich application, today announced the release of the Location Lookup, a new feature that allows multi-location small and medium-sized businesses to instantly show the address, distance and map location of all of its sites when a customer schedules an appointment or reservation with them online. This makes it easy for a scheduling customer to book an appointment or reservation at a location that’s closest or most convenient.
The Location Lookup provides scheduling two options for searching locations: they can select a location from a drop-down list or enter a ZIP/postal code or address. The online appointment book will then list up to five of the closest locations (including address and distance in miles from the customer) and pinpoint them on a map. Once a preferred location is determined, the customer simply clicks on a “Select” button to schedule his or her appointment or reservation.
The new feature is available to Appointment-Plus clients on mid-tier or platinum accounts.
The Location Lookup is the latest feature designed by Appointment-Plus online appointment book software to enhance the customer experience of businesses and create the perfect scheduling solution that results in growing customer loyalty, increased conversions and greater profitability.
“Appointment-Plus has always made the appointment-scheduling process simple and efficient for our multi-location clients,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “Now, the process is even simpler for their customers, as they can quickly see what location is closest to them.
“The new Location Lookup is another valuable benefit in making the scheduling process easy for both business and customer alike.”
