What is online scheduling software?

Fast, intuitive, and capable — online scheduling software simplifies your business by automating mundane but time-consuming tasks. Do what you do best.

Online scheduling software is a hosted service that allows your clients, customers, students, or patients to make, reschedule, and cancel appointments through a web interface. When your clients want to make an appointment with you, they go to your website, choose an available date and time, type in their contact info, and book the slot.

Why does that matter? It’s simple, actually. With access to your online scheduler, your customers don’t need to worry about calling or coming by in person. Your staff members don’t need to worry about missed calls or misplaced appointment cards. It’s a win-win for everyone involved. Of course, online scheduling software also helps to streamline operations within your business.

Additional benefits of appointment booking software

On the back end, you set up your scheduling configuration to define the exact appointment availability, based on your business hours, as well as the times and dates when your personnel and service locations are available for appointments. This ensures the utmost customization and ease of scheduling, while also ensuring that you’re able to staff your location(s) appropriately to handle the number of customer appointments and potential walk-ins.

You can start by simply entering your office hours into the scheduling configurator and letting it automatically do the rest. On the other hand, you can also dive into the myriad of available settings to manually configure appointment intervals, custom forms, lead-ins, appointment overlap, slot capacities, reservation deadlines, flexible service durations, shared availability, etc. to make sure that your online appointment scheduler fits your unique scheduling practices like the proverbial glove. Our scheduling software gives business owners the ability to quickly and easily see employee availability, address scheduling conflicts, ensure the location is staffed correctly every day of the week, and handle customized booking options to organize meetings.

Who is online scheduling software for?

Customizable and scalable, online scheduling software delivers mission-critical benefits for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes.

If your business is selling time, online scheduling software is for you. If the word "appointment" has ever bounced off the walls of your office, online booking software is for you. If you have ever told your customers, "Let me schedule you for next Tuesday", appointment management software is for you. If your receptionist has a calendar on her desk, automated scheduling software is for you. Well, you get the picture — if you are reading this, our software is for you.

What does online booking software do?

From solo entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 corporations, schools, hospitals, universities and colleges, organizations of all sizes and types use online appointment scheduling apps to focus on their core functions rather than calendars. It’s about automating the mundane tasks so that you and your team can focus on what you do best. AppointmentQuest is a software solution designed to improve your current scheduling processes and make client management, shift schedules, staff scheduling, and business management an easier part of your day to day.

How much does appointment scheduling software cost?

Think real-time capabilities and best-of-breed functionality needs to cost an arm and a leg? Think again.

AppointmentQuest offers scheduling solutions for every budget. Not only do we make it possible to purchase the right tier for your current needs, but we never lock you into a subscription contract. Scale your service up or down as your needs change and evolve. We grow with you to ensure that you’ve always got the perfect solution to appointment-setting and staff scheduling needs.

We strive to make online scheduling software cost effective and affordable. AppointmentQuest editions start at just $5 per month, with the $25/month option being our most popular, and $45 per month providing the most value.

Not sure which package is right for your needs? Don’t worry! We’re happy to work with you to find the most cost-effective pricing package based on your specific scheduling requirements and can even offer you a custom membership level if necessary. DIscount plans are available.

What is the best software for scheduling appointments online?

Feature-rich, capable, scalable — the best software for scheduling online offers the ability to address core needs within your organization and exceed customer expectations to create the ideal experience every time.

The best online scheduling software delivers powerful automation capabilities by freeing the precious time you otherwise have to spend on the mundane (and error-prone) tasks of calendaring and scheduling. Industrial magic of this sort, of course, is not simple. It requires the right features and capabilities, combined with usability factors like an easy-to-use interface. Robust data security is also a vital consideration.

Bringing it all together

First and foremost, the best online scheduling software starts with the right features relevant to the user experience. That doesn’t mean delivering the longest list of features, as most marketing professionals might tell you. Instead, it hinges on delivering features essential for saving time in the actual task of scheduling. Other bells and whistles might be nice to have, but if they don’t deliver immediate usability and value, then they represent little more than unnecessary features that you’re paying for but may never use.

All online scheduling software apps support the basic calendaring feature set. It’s the actual implementation of those capabilities that will make a difference in your everyday user experience. For instance, when considering an online appointment scheduler, answer the following questions:

  • How easily can you reschedule appointments?
  • How many schedules are you able to set and does that match your needs?
  • How fast can you locate existing customer records?
  • How far in advance can you schedule appointments?
  • Can you import and export information from/to third party software easily?
  • Does the appointment software support reminders and custom forms?
  • How quickly and accurately can you make changes to your appointment availability?

The best online scheduling software makes all of this quick, easy, and seamless. Most companies need a scheduling solution designed to allow users to spend more time doing their job and less time worrying about scheduling and communication within their existing calendars. Our online employee scheduling software provides everyone from project managers to life coaches a scheduling tool that makes it faster and easier to keep track of upcoming appointments.

Then, the best online scheduling software needs to comply with what is really important today. Specifically, the best online scheduling app needs to be secure, fast, and provide an outstanding user experience on mobile platforms. That gives you, your staff, and your customers the ability to schedule not only from desktop computer screens, but from iPads, iPhones, and Android devices as well. It’s all about creating a seamless, expedient experience at every touchpoint, no matter what device is being used to access your online scheduling app.

The limitations of free appointment scheduling services

Limited features, lacking functionality, the need to jump through hoop after hoop — these are just a few of the drawbacks with free appointment scheduling services.

Free subscriptions to online appointment management software services always come with serious strings attached. Usually, you can only book a very limited number of appointments with a free scheduling platform. Typically, there is only one scheduling calendar and only one user. Most trials don’t give you access to all the features and capabilities, either — they’re mere teases that don’t really deliver on their implied promise. Reminders, payments, third-party integrations, data entry and export, unlimited customer database, and other advanced scheduling features are usually reserved for paid service subscriptions.

There’s also the fact that most free services are not only inherently nonsecure, but the company may intentionally compromise the privacy of your data and your customers’ information. Realistically, if you are not paying anything for the service, you should expect your data to be sold to third parties for marketing purposes, and you and your customers are guaranteed to be bombarded with ads to compensate for your free subscription.

Let's face it — most free services aren’t there when you need them. What do you do if you have a question? What if you experience a problem with the platform? Generally, you should not expect free customer support. We do not recommend using free scheduling services for any legitimate business purpose no matter how attractive that might look at the first glance. Free services always turn more expensive in the long run.

AppointmentQuest offers affordable paid subscription scheduling. We respect you as our customer and never sell you as a product. From securing your data to being there when you need us, we strive to over deliver.

What makes AppointmentQuest the most secure online scheduling service provider?

Data security is crucial. How do you know that your data and your customers’ information is protected? AppointmentQuest locks it down.

AppointmentQuest's software is backed by a dedicated datacenter in Reston, Virginia. All of your appointment and customer data is securely stored on AppointmentQuest-controlled servers behind application and network layer firewalls, within a state-of-the-art, controlled access facility.

AppointmentQuest uses the latest data and network encryption protocols, including sensitive data encryption at the database layer, application level encryption, and SSL/TLS web layer encryption. Appointment and customer data is never logged in plain text and is never transmitted unencrypted across networks.

AppointmentQuest employs unique datacenter access protocols that always require the physical presence of at least one executive manager for any operation involving direct access to customer data. In the history of AppointmentQuest operations, there has not been a single security breach or instance of unauthorized data access. We put significant emphasis on data security and customer privacy.
