28 May Can Your Clients Schedule Online?
Can your clients schedule online? Your competition’s clients can, which means it is time for you to consider this online tool as well.
Online scheduling is an easy addition to your website and one that can make all of the difference in the eyes of your customers. There are more businesses than ever that are introducing online scheduling to their clients and customers—and if you haven’t added this service, then you are behind.
This is particularly important if you are in the healthcare field. Convenience is one of the biggest factors that customers look at when they are selecting a healthcare provider, and in today’s tech-driven world, they want to be able to schedule appointments and handle paperwork in the comfort of their own home—and on their own time.
With online scheduling, patients can see when their healthcare providers are available, and schedule their appointment right through their website and according to recent research, this year, nearly 40 percent of all healthcare appointments will be scheduled online.
Still need some convincing? Here are a few of the benefits of adding online scheduling to your practice’s website.
- It is great for new patients. New patients who aren’t already familiar with your office and your staff may be less inclined to pick up the phone and call your office. However, when new patients have the opportunity to book their appointment behind the veil of the internet—they are much more inclined to come in for their first visit.
- It frees up time for your staff. Your staff will start to save a great deal of time thanks to online scheduling. This means more time for your staff to spend on the patients that actually come through the doors of your practice.
- It shows your patients you care. Online scheduling is a simple way to show your patients that you care and that you are trying to offer new services that can help make life easier on them.
Chances are, your competitor’s already have online scheduling services—meaning it is time for you to jump on board and add this service to your website’s current design. It is an easy addition to any website and one that can help provide a much-needed convenience that today’s consumers have come to expect.
