Appointfix: The smart appointments book on your smartphone
Just like every river has its spring, every app that gets published most likely has its origins in a problem the founders ran into. There are at least 2 situations that led us to building Appointfix. I had a close friend that owned a dog grooming business and many times, she was frustrated because clients failed to show up for appointments. So she started manually sending text message reminders every evening, which was time consuming. Another situation was when making appointments to our dentists, there were times when they would say: ”Please call me tomorrow when I’m in the office, so I can check my appointment book…”.
It became clear to us that they needed an app that allows them to schedule appointments on their smartphone right when they’re talking with clients, so the idea for Appointfix was born. We’ve also looked into what other solutions exist on the market, and there are a few good solutions like BookFresh or Timely, but these we’re firstly built for computers and then adapted to be used on tablets or smartphones. There are also a few mobile apps on this niche but are poorly designed and we believe they don’t provide an optimal workflow.
With Appointfix we wanted to do something different, we started from the premise that everyone caries their smartphone so there it’s where everything should happen, right when the clients calls.
We’ve integrated Appointfix on the Call Screen, so while speaking with a client, the users just swipes on the app’s icon and it will quickly open the app to see available times. The app autofills the client’s information (name and phone number), all that’s left is to pick a time, choose a service (or leave the default one), and it’s set! Once the appointment is saved, the app takes care of sending text message reminders to the client.
Appointfix can be used by any independent service provider accepting appointments over phone, including but not limited to: hair stylists, make up artists, manicurists, estheticians, personal trainers, sport coaches, pilates instructors, golf instructors, yoga instructors, massage therapists, physical therapists, homeopathic practitioners, acupuncturists, osteopaths, chiropractors, dentists, vets, nutritionists, dermatologists, handymen, babysitters, house cleaners, dog walkers, gardeners, counselors, consultants, driving instructors, tattoo artists, photographers, DJs, language instructors, and music teachers.
