With Acuity’s iOS and Android app companions, managers and employees can handle their appointments on-the-go via the scheduling app.
You can also use the Acuity Scheduling software to handle several calendars. Acuity Scheduling helps you to build a variety of individual calendars in your more comprehensive business account. This ensures that your customers and staff can see the details they need more quickly and without having to sift through the rest of your business.
Like many modern booking solutions, Acuity allows your customers to make self-book appointments. Paid plans let you add a scheduler to your business website, so your clients don’t have to go to a separate site to book their next appointment. Your clients can also delay and schedule their appointments. On the employee’s hand, employees will set their availability in real-time so that clients know who is accessible for meetings.
As some paid plans also allow you to sell appointment packages, subscriptions, gift cards and other products, all paid plans have the option to accept online payments and deposits via PayPal, Square or Tripe. The app can store the customer’s credit card details in a secure safe, making it quicker and easier to charge customers for subsequent bookings. You can also offer clients the option to tip your employees to the advanced features bundle.
Acuity directs you throughout the set-up to show the days and times you are available. Later, you can set up various forms of meetings and advanced preferences through your dashboard.
Decide how far in advance you want clients to arrange meetings by choosing a minimum number of hours in advance and a maximum number of days in advance. Toggle the client’s right to reschedule and cancel on or off appointments.
Branding and customisation:
Acuity gives you the ability to add your logo, change colour and font, and customise and copy your scheduling details. The Powerhouse package also includes custom APIs and CSS for developers, plus the option to delete “Driven by” on your scheduler.
Automated text and e-mail messaging:
Acuity Scheduling Automatic Text and Email Messaging is an efficient way to engage the clients and reduce the number of no-show appointments. The Acuity Scheduling app automatically sends confirmation email updates. Appointment reminder emails may be sent up to three times per appointment, and text reminders may be sent once. Acuity Scheduling does not endorse two-way texting or e-mailing.
You can also have Acuity send text messages to your employees when appointments are booked, cancelled or rescheduled. Simply enter the phone numbers of your staff in the notification module.
Acuity Scheduling is provided with simple monitoring features that evaluate the success of your appointment schedule. You can access advanced appointment, sales, cancellation and no-show monitoring, and more from your Acuity dashboard.
With Acuity Scheduling, you can minimise check-in times by submitting intake forms to your clients prior to their appointment. You can configure questions in text boxes, drop-down lists, checkboxes, file upload sections, or address sections. You can also use this module to create private forms that can be used internally to monitor appointment information, and healthcare providers can make SOAP notes.
