Hire the personal assistant who never takes a coffee break!
Octomize is an online appointment scheduler that lets your customers quickly and easily select their preferred appointment date and time. There is never a need to speak to a live person. Your customers will love the simplicity and convenience of making an appointment at any time they want, whether you are open for business or not!
The Octomize Appointment Scheduler is busy, booking appointments for you - all day, all night, and all year around! You are free to do what you do best - work ON your business, not IN your business! The burden of scheduling appointments is taken off your shoulders - for a cost that is far less than the cost of a receptionist's salary, benefits and time off.
Our synchronization tools can synchronize your business and personal appointment calendars to help avoid any scheduling conflicts.
Your customers select dates and times
After your customers select your service, they can pick the date, time, and service provider. Should they wish to learn more about the service provider they can click on the name link and see a bio and picture. Available time slots are shown in green and the selected customer time in yellow.
Customers and employees get reminders
No more calling to remind everyone of their appointment. E-mails and text messages are sent out in ample time. The e-mails contain a map link with the address so your customers can get clear directions. The employees can synchronize their calendars with Microsoft Outlook 2007 and then to their smart phone like iPhone or Blackberry.
Manage and control your appointments and orders
You have immediate access to appointments and e-commerce orders in your Administration Panel. Everyone may view the company appointment calendar. Employees view and manage just their personal calendars. Managers have full access to viewing, adding, and editing appointments.
The Dashboard alerts you to appointments needing recording and open e-commerce orders. Appointment comments are for public or private use. A summary view of the total appointments, sales, and orders is shown with links to the charts to view trends.
While selecting an appointment, customers may buy your products and select to pick them up at your business or have you ship directly to them.
They add products to their shopping cart and complete their order in the same process as booking their appointments. Here are some highlights of the e-commerce system.Online Store
