Some good software programs that allow users to schedule and book appointments are FlexBooker, Acuity Scheduling, EZnet Scheduler and Square, according to TopTenReviews.com. Each of these products allows a user to access their schedule via a mobile device, schedule recurring visits, automatically send text reminders of appointments to clients, and book, reschedule or cancel appointments online. These programs have subscription fees ranging from $34 to $50 per month as of 2015.
Appointment scheduling software gives a user, as well as their administrator and associates, access to a calendar where each can set appointments with clients while taking into account other tasks, meetings and days out of the office. Each of these programs also supplies client portals that allow visitors to schedule and confirm an appointment directly on the company's website or through a mobile device.
Each program has unique features and strengths. FlexBooker allows users to create a waiting list and automatically notifies clients when a desired appointment time becomes available. Mobile booking from Acuity Scheduling allows both the user and client to connect to the appointment scheduler using a mobile device and work through the booking process together. EZnet Scheduler lets users set up automated telephone reminders in addition to email and text messages. Square allows customers to easily set their own appointments on an interactive calendar with available times clearly displayed.
