Running your own home services company is tough. As a business owner you have to wear so many hats each day like marketing, sales, foreman, accountant and office administrator. What if you could remove some of those hats and spend more time growing your business? With Apptoto’s automated text appointment reminder and online scheduling software, you can take off the administrative task hat and get back to doing the work that you love.

Text Reminder Software Saves Time & Stress

Automated reminder software from Apptoto helps you free up time and reduce no-shows and unprepared clients. Ever get to a job site only to find it unaccessible? That wastes time and resources. Your crew spent time traveling to the site and then aren’t able to do their job. How frustrating! With appointment reminders and confirmations, clients get the reminders they need and can be held accountable with cancellation and no-show policies. Not ready for a cancellation policy? Don’t worry, text message still help your business. Text reminders have a 30% higher confirmation rate than phone calls, and 150% higher rate than emails.

Customizable text message reminders also help keep you and your customers on the same page for their service. For instance, if you have them scheduled for an outdoor pest control service, but they are expecting a termite inspection, tailored appointment reminders that also include the scheduled service help identify and eliminate that confusion prior to your crew going onsite.

Fully-Integrated with Your Current Calendaring System

Apptoto fully integrates with all your calendars for easy online booking that doesn’t require you to change your current scheduling process. Your clients can book online, directly through you or you can even manually add appointments to your calendar. Then, Apptoto will extract that information and send out appointment reminders. Fully customizable automated reminders mean your support teams can spend less time managing calendars and more time assisting in-office clients. Easy cancellation options help clients provide adequate notice and allow scheduling staff to refill time slots and avoid costly gaps in workflow.
