Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
Screenpush (http://www.screenpush.com), a leading digital marketing, advertising and technology development firm, announces the debut of Notif.ly: an innovative web app and two-way automated appointment reminder platform, designed to help businesses ensure that clients, patients and other customers - in a variety of industries - will always keep their scheduled appointments. The result of extensive research, development and testing, this proprietary technology is considerably more effective, and less expensive, than existing alternatives.
By enabling doctors and other professionals to easily manage, confirm, and schedule their clients, Notif.ly is helping to eliminate missed appointments and meetings, which cost businesses hundreds of millions of dollars per year. For example: among doctors, dentists, chiropractors (and even personal trainers), one missed appointment can potentially amount to $100 or more in lost revenue. In the health care industry, patients miss or suddenly cancel 12-21% of their appointments on a daily basis. The cumulative impact of these events, for a single practice, can mean a loss ranging from $62,400 to $109,200 every year.
Notif.ly empowers businesses to minimize these losses by automating the entire appointment process. Once these appointments or meeting are set, Notif.ly simply sends a timely, courteous SMS reminder to each patient, client or customer; allowing them to then confirm or cancel the appointments at their own convenience. Based on the confirmation or cancellation reply the platform then alerts the business as to which customers and clients are going to show-up and which ones need to reschedule.
"Notif.ly is a must-have solution that simplifies our hectic schedules, where people can easily forget to confirm appointments or attend previously calendared events. The fallout from these actions - even for a small business - can mean losses exceeding tens of thousands of dollars per year. Notif.ly eliminates that problem by quickly scheduling meetings, and ensuring people receive advanced notice - in a respectful fashion - about these appointments with an SMS reminder," says Joshua Otten, Managing Partner of Screenpush.
Not only does Notif.ly help businesses reduce lost revenue from missed or canceled appointments, it also minimizes the amount of valuable on-the-clock time that employees and staff have to spend on reminders and follow-up calls to clients. Notif.ly assumes full control of this process, freeing up employees to spend their time on more immediate and important tasks.
Businesses that utilize Notif.ly in managing appointments never have to call their clients to reconfirm a meeting. Instead, clients or patients simply receive an automated text to cancel or confirm their appointments. These responses then go to business owners or office managers, letting them know whether said client will attend a scheduled appointment or needs to be rescheduled. Messages from Notif.ly may also contain directions, instructions, special offers and other customized content.
“Notif.ly is the result of considerable research, which reveals a startling figure: 95% of all text messages are read, as opposed to just 23% for emails,” explains Mr. Otten. “Texts also get a higher response rate than calls or emails. And while people won’t always answer the phone at work or when they are in a meeting, they will almost always check or respond to a text."
Unlike other SMS platforms that are frequently part of a larger suite of services, and may cost hundreds of dollars, Notif.ly provides a freemium service that allows anyone with a small business to start using it for free. After that, monthly bulk plans begin for as low as just $10 a month.
Notif.ly is an innovative web app and appointment reminder tool, which helps businesses ensure that clients, patients and other patrons - in a variety of industries - will not miss their scheduled appointments. Notif.ly automates the appointment and reminder process, helping businesses to increase their revenue by decreasing their no-show rate, while also freeing up staff to spend their time on more immediate responsibilities. Notif.ly is an affordably priced, efficient SaaS platform that empowers businesses to dramatically increase the arrival and attendance rate among their respective customers.
