Creating a Seamless Customer Experience
As a Managed Service Provider (MSP), the nature of our business involves solving problems through asking questions and creating solutions. This means it’s important that we offer our existing clients a super-easy way to book an appointment with us. That’s why we use a free online scheduling tool called Calendly.
What is Calendly?
Calendly is an appointment scheduling app that individuals and organizations use to schedule meetings and appointments with their leads/clients. It eliminates back-and-forth emails, creating a more streamlined scheduling workflow and seamless customer experience.
It’s an automated solution, which means users can book an appointment by simply having access to your unique Calendly calendar. It can sync with and check availability across multiple calendars, such as Google Calendar, Outlook, and more. This helps avoid double-bookings or other scheduling conflicts.
