Appointment-Plus Ready for Winter Session Student-Scheduling, Testing at University Systems

Appointment-Plus helps university systems and large colleges better manage their winter session scheduling with the industry’s most highly scalable and configurable scheduling solution that includes unmatched customer support and unique services.

 
PRLog - Nov. 17, 2011 - Scottsdale, AZ – Like most organizations, large university systems with multiple campuses operate year-round and offer services during the transitional winter session between fall and spring semesters. And just like during the busier spring and fall semesters, these universities rely on proven scheduling processes for an assortment of different tasks, such as booking student academic advising appointments, counseling sessions, tutoring and testing. Many of these sites, however, will implement shortened hours and staff schedules, making scheduling an even more daunting task for administrators and students alike. These university systems require not only the most advanced scheduling option available, but also a highly scalable and configurable solution that can integrate with existing applications and provides unmatched customer support. Appointment-Plus is designed to perfect the scheduling processes of these larger university systems, making it the most efficient scheduling solution at hundreds of campuses nationwide.

A differentiating characteristic of Appointment-Plus (http://www.appointment-plus.com)not found in other online scheduling software providers is its array of services and benefits geared specifically for larger organizations, such as university systems. This includes:

• A highly scalable system that allows college systems to easily accommodate increases in workload, users and growth.
• Web services, including integrations with existing software systems.
• The most configurable scheduling software system available.
• 24-hour support from its headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz.
• Dedicated support contacts.
• “Turnkey”, existing solutions that are instantly ready to go live.
• Custom graphic user interface (GUI) development.
• Robust reporting capabilities.

University system and college administrators that take advantage of these offered services can quickly implement a scheduling system that instantly integrates into their existing processes.

“Student-scheduling can be a daunting task at university systems, especially for institutions looking for wide-ranging scheduling solutions that span departments, facilities and satellite campuses,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “In addition to providing the scheduling industry’s best lineup of features and functionality, our experience in higher education  

Providing appointment-scheduling solutions to universities and colleges since 2001, Appointment-Plus gives administrators the tools they need to improve the tedious and time-consuming process of booking their students and testing centers. These include online student self-scheduling; whereby students can book their own appointments online instead of having to call them in or schedule in-person; and automated e-mail and text message reminders, which is especially popular at testing centers as it can reduce the “no-show” rate by over 50 percent.  

Administrators also appreciate the pre-set “rules” of the Appointment-Plus online scheduling software system, which prevents over-bookings or students from booking one service multiple times, such as at a testing center.

In addition to its industry-leading scheduling functionality, Appointment-Plus also offers the best integration solutions for connecting its scheduler with popular software applications routinely used by university personnel. This includes syncs with e-marketing service providers such as Constant Contact, iContact, MailChimp and Vertical Response. Future releases of particular interest to education professionals and staff include syncs with Google and Microsoft Outlook calendars and an enhanced mobile Web app.

Appointment-Plus online scheduling software is a Web-based application that requires only an Internet connection to utilize. No downloads, installations or additional hardware are required.

“For a campus-wide solution to your student and testing-center scheduling, turn to Appointment-Plus,” La Loggia adds. “We have the experience and expertise to automate, streamline and improve this important function.”
