‘Psychologist Online AirPersons’ was initially launched for Android devices in September last year, and two months later for iPhone. The app has been very successful on both platforms, with over 5000 registered psychologists and psychologists offering more than 1000 online services. The site already has more than 4000 psychology services available and the number is increasing by the day.
“We are surprised by the great acceptance for our app both on the iPhone and Android platforms and by the related professional media as well as. Many people needed a way to consult a professional without having to travel within town, and psychologists sought a means to avoid suffering the too-frequent appointment cancellation. Additionally, psychologists are highly interconnected and that has helped us to make ourselves known in countries where we have not launched any media campaign”, says Leo Lauper, co-founder of AirPersons.
Running ‘Psychologist Online AirPersons’ is very intuitive. The first thing to do is to download the app from the Windows Phone App Store. After downloading it automatically starts the registration process, and the psychologist can create a service and set the price per hour and the detailed conditions, hours of availability, cancellation cost of the booked sessions and all information the therapist wants to provide. After creating the service, the professional may answer patient’s queries from their smartphone with Windows 8 whenever they are online.
Privacy is the main strength of Psychologist Online AirPersons. When a patient initiates a session with a psychologist the system requests their PayPal account or credit card data, so the session starts only when the necessary balance has been retained. The customer payment information is never available to the psychologist, and the client never has access to the phone number of the professional. This ensures complete privacy for both parties.
A PSYCHOLOGIST ALWAYS "AT HAND"
Thanks to AirPersons app any patient has now the possibility of being treated by a psychologist at any time, anywhere, using almost any device with Internet access. Psychologists can answer questions anywhere in the world immediately, and patients can find therapy sessions from just 5 euros anywhere they are.
“Windows Phone is a platform that is growing rapidly and we wanted to pioneer a specific psychology app. The reception has been very good and the number of downloads grows every day.” adds M. Luis, CEO of AirPersons. The next step for the app, after its Android, iPhone and now Windows Phone release is expanding to Blackberry devices.
AirPersons.com is also a way to get some extra income. Anyone can offer services from their computer at home with Internet access or from their smartphone.
