Use case: Reduce missed appointments

Missed appointments or reservations don’t just cause inconvenience - they cost your business in lost revenue, missed opportunities or incurred costs.

Many forward-thinking organisations are tackling this problem from the other end. A timely SMS reminder is proven to be well received and highly effective in reducing missed appointments. Of course, there will always be some appointments that can’t be kept but by giving people the option to cancel or rearrange easily via SMS, you’re less likely to be left waiting and may even be able to offer the slot to someone else.

There are lots of industries already using SMS messaging to reduce missed appointments, including hotels and restaurants, healthcare, garages, estate agents, hair and beauty salons, schools and colleges, recruitment and logistics.
