Missed appointments can be a significant source of lost revenue for any business. The wastage of staff time readily mounts up and with forgetfulness being the primary reason for missing appointments, iRemind provides a comprehensive and sophisticated solution with SMS, Voice and Email reminders controlled easily from the office PC or administration terminal.
A high profile example is the NHS where losses incurred through patients missing appointments were estimated at £614m in 2006. 10% of patients fail to turn up for appointments and the figures are similar across UK Business.
iRemind is the most sophisticated yet simple to use appointment reminder service on offer. It is a service hosted by leading UK Telephony Provider X-on and costs very little to maintain with reminder unit pricing being extremely low, yet the savings through a reduction in missed appointments is significant.
iRemind can deliver reminders via SMS, Voice Messages to both mobile and landline phones plus via Email. The option then exists for the recipient to respond either confirming or canceling the appointment. There is also the option for reminder cancellation and rescheduling.
People who miss appointments usually do so inadvertantly and suffer some embarrassment as a result. Most are grateful for a reminder and for the option to confirm or cancel the appointment if need be. It displays a much appreciated interest in the client on the part of the business or institution.
Sports Clubs, Hair and Beauty Salons, Medical Institutions and any business suffering losses due to missed appointments will find their customer interaction revolutionized by implementation of the iRemind service.
