Scheduling appointments online from your computer or mobile devices will soon be as common as booking travel arrangements or shopping online. The online appointment scheduling solutions available to businesses are numerous but, within this increasingly crowded space, only a handful can truly meet the demands necessary to be useful for most businesses. Among that handful, SnapAppointments (www.snapappointments.com), which launched in early 2011 at SXSW, provides the perfect blend of functionality, flexibility, and value and packages it with a beautiful user interface that is unmatched by the competition (at least at the time of this writing.) In fact, SnapAppointments has one of the best user interfaces in the cloud, regardless of industry.
A small business can sign up and be accepting appointments online in minutes. You add services, staff, configure your schedule(s), and choose from any or all of the various options available to put your availability at your clients fingertips, whether it's embedding the SnapAppointments booking module into your existing website, adding the SnapAppointments Facebook App to your Facebook page, or simply linking to your SnapAppointments landing page from your website, email, or anywhere else.
SnapAppointments is free for life for single-employee businesses, and offers a free 30-day trial of their professional service (no credit card required) immediately upon signing up. If you are a business looking for online appointment booking solutions, complete with automated appointment reminders, check out SnapAppointments.
