ONLINE APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING AT COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES BENEFITING STUDENTS

Increasing Number of Institutions Offering Online Appointment-Scheduling Service


Scottsdale, Ariz. – Students returning to colleges and universities this month for the spring semester may find it easier to register online for vital campus services thanks to an innovative, Web-based appointment software service.

An increasing number of educational institutions nationwide are utilizing Appointment-Plus (www.appointment-plus.com) to allow students to schedule their own appointments and reservations online at academic advising offices, testing and tutoring centers, and other campus facilities. In addition to making the scheduling process easier and more convenient for the students, it also minimizes the amount of staff time dedicated to answering phones and e-mail messages and manually managing faculty calendars. Once scheduled, a student can request an appointment reminder via e-mail and/or text message.

“Our online scheduling service is the perfect fit for campus facilities that schedule appointment times, services and instructors for its student body and faculty,” says Ryan Kelly, vice president of sales and marketing at StormSource Software (www.stormsource.com), the developer of Appointment-Plus. “It has made this oftentimes tedious process more effective and efficient by automating and streamlining it.”

Over 500 colleges, universities and academic centers nationwide use Appointment-Plus for their scheduling needs. Newly added institutions include:

•   The City College of New York
•   Florida State College
•   Georgia Southern University
•   Morehouse College
•   Stephen F. Austin State University
•   The University of Michigan
•   The University of Mississippi
•   The University of Montana
•   The University of San Diego

StormSource supplies over 3,500 clients throughout the United States, Canada and 10 other countries the tools they need to schedule student, customer and patient appointment times, book rooms, accept registrations and many other services. Geared primarily toward small businesses such as doctors’ offices, spas, health clubs and massage therapists, users of its Appointment-Plus service also include Fortune 500 companies; colleges, universities and other educational institutions; healthcare agencies and facilities; federal and local government; and freight and delivery services.

“Setting appointments and scheduling rooms should not be a time-consuming task,” Kelly continues. “Our software allows clients to focus less on administrative duties and more on the important components of their operations.”
