Avoid No-Shows with Appointment Reminders
A new automated appointment reminder platform, dubbed Notifly, is aiming to change the way businesses approach no-show appointments.
Screenpush launched Notifly to make scheduling appointments both easier and more effective. According to the company, the platform features an automated reminder system that works with 99 percent of cell phones. Through Notifly, business can send automatic text message appointment reminders to prompt recipients to either confirm or cancel their reservation, which can reduce no-shows and save revenue for businesses.
“The technology behind Notifly is advanced, but the logic is simple,” said CEO Josh Otten. “Save money, improve efficiency. The Notifly service is affordable and pays for itself almost immediately. And the results will improve everything about how a business functions. The idea came out of a very real problem facing many businesses and health organizations in particular. And the product offers a smooth and effective solution at a low cost.”
Notifly makes it simple for clients to cancel appointments, as they are only required to respond with a ‘Y’ (yes) or ‘N’ (no) to the text reminders. Plus, the platform automatically tracks appointments in order to choose the optimal time to send the reminders. A calendar confirms that the reminder messages have been sent and updates the schedule with green time slots representing confirmation, red indicating a cancelation and yellow representing a pending response. It is also important to note that Notifly only costs between 2-4 cents per reminder
“Not only does Notifly save businesses money, but it also improves their operating efficiency, making things easier for employees and more streamlined for the clients themselves,” says CEO Josh Otten.
