Missed appointments can cost your practice time and money. SMS reminders are a great way to jog peoples memory and prompt them to come to the appointment, or giving them the opportunity to call and reschedule, allowing you to maximise your appointment book. Quick SMS reminders can be accessed through your account messaging navigation or it can also be installed directly into your bookmarks toolbar where you can send SMS instantly without having to login to your account.
Dentists can now fill in their appointments faster than ever, by providing a seamless and non-intrusive way of reaching their clients with SMS reminders. In Simply Smile’s case, they have added an extra level of service by combining SMS reminders with email. Through a virtual number, Simply Smile was able to process SMS responses and forward them to email. Their receptionists were then able to reply to those emails, and have their email replies sent back as text messages.
