Schedulicity Announces a New, Single-Tap, Mobile ExperienceNew Mobile Web App, Focused on Efficiency & Ease-of-Use for Service-Based SMBs and Their Clients, Provides Reliability Reputation for Bookings (February 29, 2012)
CAMPBELL, CA and BOZEMAN, MT -- (Marketwire) -- 02/29/12 -- Schedulicity (http://schedulicity.com), the leader in online scheduling for appointment-dependent small businesses, today announced the marketwide general availability of Schedulicity Mobile, a new mobile web application that provides a single-tap appointment booking experience for SMBs and consumers on their smartphone or tablet.
As the "mobile OpenTable" for appointment-dependent businesses, Schedulicity Mobile gives clients the convenience of booking a service time with their favorite stylist, dog walker, CPA, etc., directly from their mobile device with a single-tap. The first of its kind, Schedulicity Mobile is the only consumer and business-facing mobile web app that facilitates on-the-go booking for services across more than 30 different verticals. Schedulicity Mobile offers a streamlined scheduling experience for both Schedulicity's small business customers and their clients in a convenient, straightforward, and visually-engaging way.
The enhanced consumer experience has an attractive layout and design. Schedulicity Mobile allows subscribers to edit existing appointments and classes, adjust personal availability, schedule and edit recurring appointments, dial or email a client directly from an appointment or client record, and access the Schedulicity Message Center to view messages sent by clients who schedule online.
Schedulicity Mobile also focuses on service professionals' customers, making the mobile scheduling experience truly best in class. Short of signing in, the web app allows clients to schedule an appointment or book a class without typing a single word. Additionally, clients can search for a business by category as well as enjoy one-tap access to maps and tap-to-call capabilities. Clients can also cancel or reschedule their upcoming appointments or classes using Schedulicity Mobile -- even if they originally scheduled those appointments in-person or over the phone.
"Appointment-dependent businesses are continuing to heavily rely on their smartphones and tablets to run their business and handle administrative efficiency and minimize their dependence on a legacy desktop computer," said Jerry Nettuno, CEO of Schedulicity. "Our goal remains steadfast, to provide the best possible experience for both small businesses and consumers by engaging the ubiquitous mobile channel."
Mobile will continue to be a point of focus for Schedulicity in 2012. In January 2012, the online scheduling company surveyed nearly 1,200 Schedulicity-using SMB owners and found a stunning 95 percent ranked mobile as critically important to the success of their business in the coming year.
