College Career Services Turn to Online Scheduling Software for Manage Their Students' Appointments

Career counselors, services and offices at colleges, universities, community colleges and technical schools nationwide rely on Appointment-Plus online scheduling software to automate, streamline and improve their appointment-booking processes.

 
PRLog - Apr. 14, 2011 - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Scottsdale, Ariz. - Career services plays an important role on campuses nationwide for both current students and graduates looking for professional guidance as they tackle the job market. These counseling sessions typically require appointments, which creates a tedious process for those offices ill-prepared to manage this important, but time-consuming, office task. That’s why colleges, universities, community colleges, technical schools and other educational institutions nationwide rely on Appointment-Plus online scheduling software for their year-round appointment-booking needs.

A leader in online scheduling software since 2001, Appointment-Plus (http://www.appointment-plus.com/index.php) online scheduling software provides career services departments, offices and counselors the Web-based tools they need to simplify the booking process, such as:

• Online student self-scheduling, which allows students to book their own appointments at their convenience, 24 hours a day. Career services offices and departments simply add an Appointment-Plus provided “Book Now” button on their Web site, social media page or other online access page, which takes the student right to their online scheduler.
• Automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to a scheduled appointment time.
• Robust record-keeping and reporting capabilities.

Counselors and offices that implement Appointment-Plus online scheduling software can expect an immediate change in the way they book their appointments. For example, a recent Appointment-Plus survey reveals that a majority of college clients use it to book over 75 percent of their student appointments, which previously would have been scheduled over the phone, by e-mail or in-person. This can result in significant time savings for these counselors and staff members; about a third of them save over 10 hours per week.

Education institutions also use Appointment-Plus to schedule students’ on-campus interviews with potential employers.

Appointment-Plus provides a scheduling option that students are more comfortable with, as most now rely on their Internet-enabled devices to conduct their daily tasks.

“Today’s students are Web-savvy and are less likely to call in to book an appointment if they can do it online,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of StormSource Software, the developer of Appointment-Plus. “This benefits not only the student, but also the career services department, as it will spend less time answering the phone and entering appointment times and student information into spreadsheets or calendars.”

Colleges and universities that currently utilize Appointment-Plus online scheduling software in their career services and counseling offices include:

• Boston University School of Law
• Chapman University
• Eastern Michigan University
• Georgetown University Law School
• Harvard Law School

Educational institutions use Appointment-Plus for scheduling a wide variety of other services as well, such as academic advising, testing centers, financial aid meetings, and booking study rooms and other facilities.  

Appointment-Plus requires only an Internet connection, with no downloads, installations or additional hardware required. Pricing starts at $39 per month, with no long-term contracts. All accounts come with a free one-hour training session with a professional set-up coach.

“Automating your scheduling procedures benefits both your students and your office staff,” La Loggia continues. “Appointment-Plus is the affordable and reliable choice to get your appointments in order!”
