How many times have you called up the doctor’s office or the hair salon and been put on hold while they try to hunt for an available time slot to fit you in? Even more annoying is when you are at the actual facility, schedule a follow-up visit, and they give you one of those little business card size appointment reminder cards. Is it us, or does basically everyone in the world lose those things somewhere between the exit door and the parking lot? Do you “resemble that remark?” Yep, we thought so. Hello, Pot. This is Kettle.
The bright and shining news is that it doesn’t have to be that way! Whether businesses outsource to a call center with an appointment scheduling service or choose to implement appointment setting software themselves, utilizing this technology can help keep everyone organized, eliminate overbooking, and make it so much easier to arrange appointments for valued clients. Openings pop up on agents’ screens, facilitating efficient scheduling and short call durations. The software can also be integrated with existing calendar management applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar. What’s not to love?
