For businesses that provide appointment-based services to customers, the ability to track the status of those appointments is very important. Doing so can help curb no-shows, optimize operations and even attract or retain clients.

What Is Appointment Scheduling Software? 

At a certain point, paper-based datebooks, agendas, calendars and planners just aren’t effective for appointment tracking. They’re hard for teams to access simultaneously, not equipped for large-scale scheduling and more vulnerable to getting lost or stolen than digital appointment-setting tools.

Appointment scheduling software is increasingly becoming a must-have technology for service-based businesses. These systems help you automate scheduling processes by enabling both customers and employees to book appointments and organize meetings.

Among other things, the software facilitates appointment cancellations, rescheduling and online payment processing. It can also be used to send out automated reminders and capture customer information that can be used to run effective marketing campaigns.

These systems can help schedule many different kinds of appointments, including classes, workshops, special events and tours. They’re valuable in a variety of industries, such as:

  • Health and beauty (e.g., medical practices, spas and salons)
  • Fitness and recreation (e.g., gyms, yoga studios and personal trainers)
  • Financial services (e.g., tax consultants and accountants)
  • Auto maintenance (e.g., mechanics and car washes)
  • Food service (e.g., restaurants and caterers)
  • Field service (e.g., pest control and housecleaning)
  • Education (e.g., tutors and universities)

Common Functionality of Appointment Scheduling Software

Most appointment scheduling software solutions come with some or all of the following capabilities:

Online booking Enables customers to book, reschedule or follow up on appointments online by using an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Certain systems allow users to create online bookings that automatically synchronize across multiple devices, including desktops, tablets and mobile devices.
Real-time automated scheduling The software can confirm or deny an appointment instantly when a booking request is made, based on availability. It can also manage a waiting list of appointments that can be substituted if an existing booking is cancelled or rescheduled.
Calendar management Users can create appointments or meetings on their calendars and share them with participants at multiple locations. This feature may also include synchronization with third-party calendar management applications used by the participants (e.g., Google Calendar).
Automatic reminders Allows users to send reminders to customers about upcoming appointments via email notifications or SMS text messaging.
Customer scheduling Enables customers to view the ca
