    Since the quarantine and now with the new phases of de-confinement, communication management has been key not to lose your clients. Now, managing in an efficient way the system of appointments is even more important. 

    Many companies have been using the system of appointments from before the confinement in a habitual way. We are talking about services like health centers, spas, wellness salons, beauty centers, physiotherapists, pet shops, dentists, car shops, etc. But now, other shops and bookshops also need to regulate their appointments by law. This way, you can control the influx of clients that come to the shop. 

    For this reason, it’s very important to have an effective appointment system. Don’t lose appointments or money and reduce crowds that would bring about health risks.

    When choosing a managing platform for your appointments, you should consider some of the needs of the company:

    • Can I use the platform on the web?
    • Can I integrate an SMS platform with an API using my normal software?
    • Can I automate sendings or program them for certain schedules?
    • Can the platform save phone calls and reduce the administrative load of my personnel?
    • How do changes and cancellations of appointments manage within the site?
    • Can I modify my database?
    • Can I send extra information in my messages? For example, you might be interested in sending health measures or safety advice for your clients when they come for their appointment. 
    • Can payments be done via these messages?
