Booking and managing appointments is the lifeblood of businesses that serve large numbers of clients, businesses like healthcare and fitness clubs, beauty salons, and even consulting firms.
A booking that falls through the cracks is certain to create some ill will. If it happens a second time, it could result in the loss of a client and/or a less than glowing review.
Bookings problems and mistakes can be avoided by making the process error-free, more reliable, and simplified.
Isn’t that easier said than done? Not really.
Amelia is a WordPress booking plugin that gives you the error-free, reliable, simplified solution you need; even while you sleep. This all-embracing software booking solution supports:
- Multiple employees and clients, irrespective of their work days, days off, and working hours.
- Multiple services and service types.
- A single or multiple business locations.
- Graphical depictions of a business’s key performance indicators.
- And more (see the feature list).
Presenting Amelia, the Automated WordPress Booking Plugin
Amelia’s users will tell you that it was about time that a booking management tool like this one made its appearance; a tool that would make and manage your business’s appointments 24/7, without fail. Want to see how it works? Here’s a client view of the plugin in action.
Not only can this WordPress booking plugin do all these good things for you, it requires no technical expertise whatsoever to install, set up, and put to use. Check out the back-end demo and see for yourself.
Since Amelia is 100% automated, you don’t have to worry about making and managing your bookings yourself or hire someone to do it for you. Your clients do so themselves, and at any hour of the day or night. All you have to do is to view the appointments that have been made, set your calendar, and check with your business team; all from a single platform.
Here’s a quick video presentation of the appointment booking plugin:
You can do away with the sticky notes, the hastily-scribble whiteboard messages (which have a tendency to get erased), and having to smooth over meeting attendance goofs once you put this flawlessly-performing booking management system on autopilot.
You can even take credit for running such a smooth booking system because of Amelia’s intuitive interface and the cool user experience it offers. Amelia won’t mind if you do, although a 5-star review on your part will always be appreciated.
Amelia’s Top Benefits
You’ll pay a one-time, highly-affordable, fee. That’s certainly better than hiring a salaried or hourly employee, assigning someone to manage your bookings on a part-time basis. Because Amelia’s fee is so low, your ROI is almost instantaneous. You’ll be saving money instead of spending it.
You can devote the time saved to better serving your clients. Or, you might spend the time Amelia is saving you looking for other ways that might benefit your business. All your clients know is their requests for bookings and appointments have been professionally addressed and taken care of.
You’ll look more professional. Clients appreciate it when booking an appointment is quick, smooth, and hassle-free, and it makes your business operation look modern, efficient and professionally run.
You’ll be better organized and in control. It’s much easier to keep well-organized and under control when everything you need is in one place and readily available. Looking for scraps of paper that gives the time and place for an appointment or a sticky note that somehow came unstuck will be history once Amelia is in charge.
Once your appointments are being managed automatically, you’ll have full control over them, which places you in a better position to optimize both your workflow and your money flow.
