Schedulicity More Than Doubles Appointments in Just One Year and Clocks Over 300,000 Appointments Every 2 WeeksOver 10 Million Appointments Scheduled Using Schedulicity (February 16, 2012)
CAMPBELL, CA and BOZEMAN, MT -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/12 -- Schedulicity (http://schedulicity.com), the leader in online scheduling for appointment-dependent service professionals, announced today that more than 300,000 appointments are now being scheduled every two weeks using Schedulicity, and that number is growing exponentially. Ten million appointments have been scheduled through Schedulicity since its launch just three years ago. Usage among consumers has more than doubled in the past year, from 4 million appointments scheduled a year ago to over 10 million today.
"We are pleased to announce this important milestone for Schedulicity and thrilled to see our scheduling service has resonated with so many consumers looking to streamline their lives and schedule online," said Jerry Nettuno, CEO of Schedulicity. "As this milestone indicates, Schedulicity is providing a time-saving service for millions of people who make and manage a myriad of personal appointments."
Consumers schedule millions of appointments each day, and most of these appointments are still made by phone and managed with paper and pencil. Finding a time slot that is mutually agreeable to both the consumer and the service professional can be a daunting ordeal filled with frustrations and inefficiencies. Just as OpenTable revolutionized the way consumers make restaurant reservations, Schedulicity allows consumers to schedule appointments with their favorite local service professionals, 24 hours a day via computer or mobile device.
Schedulicity's array of new product offerings in 2011 provided new ways for consumers to schedule time with their favorite service professionals, including Deal Manager and Pop-Up Offers. The July 2011 launch of Deal Manager, a first-of-its-kind scheduling service that allows appointment-dependent businesses to define the maximum number of appointments that can be generated over the lifespan of a daily deal promotion, generated nearly 10,000 appointments within weeks of its release. Consumers were also given the opportunity to schedule last-minute, discounted appointments with the launch of Pop-Up Offers in September 2011. Another spike in usage followed the launch, with 13,000 last-minute appointments scheduled.
"Thanks in part to our new features, Schedulicity has seen tremendous traction and increases in consumer adoption over the past year. The consumer adoption is also driving further merchant adoption," added Nettuno. "We have exciting developments in the pipeline this year, and remain laser-focused, as the leader in online scheduling, on delivering the best online scheduling service -- second to none."
Schedulicity is the leading online appointment scheduling solution for small businesses. To date, 10 million appointments have been booked through Schedulicity (an appointment is booked every four seconds) in more than 2,000 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Schedulicity currently facilitates over $560 million in appointment-based commerce per year. Schedulicity earned the prestigious DEMOgod Award at DEMO Fall 2011 for exceptional potential to thrive in the market, and was also honored by Tech Awards Circle 2011 for Best SMB Service, which recognizes small to mid-sized companies that have created a truly outstanding technology service.
