My schedule gets booked out for weeks in advance during the spring and summer golf season. My former method for booking students was either by cell phone between lessons, since my office is on the driving range or golf course, or through the pro shop at the golf course. My business requires that my students are able to conveniently schedule golf lessons, and this was definitely difficult to maintain on a paper calendar.
I began using USchedule and introduced it to my students, encouraging them to go directly to my Web site and book their future lessons. This turned into a no-brainer simply because most of them are online throughout the day, so using a phone turned into an extra step for them. The online scheduler also has a very consistent attitude, it doesn’t get frustrated with numerous requests, as people sometimes do. Bookings became very easy for my students, they could view their calendar with mine simultaneously.
My “no show” and cancellation rate has been cut to nearly zero because people book their own appointments, get reminders and seem to remember their lesson times better when they book themselves.
It is now so simple to manage my schedule well into the future, freeing up valuable time that I can spend with my students rather than maintaining a paper-based scheduler. I would recommend your service to anyone that has scheduling needs.
