Make Scheduling Appointments Easy for Your Customers

Life is hectic, especially when you’re trying to run your own business. Relying on a pen and paper approach to booking appointments can mean confusion and missed opportunities—double bookings are frustrating for customers and can negatively affect your reputation.

Customers like to plan ahead so offering the option to easily book an appointment for services like a spa appointment, food tour, or fitness class can give you the edge over your competition. An appointment scheduling software will provide your customers with a convenient way to schedule an appointment. And it will make managing all of your appointments more efficient for you.

The Square App Marketplace offers a number of appointment scheduling software apps that fully integrate with Square Point of Sale. These apps are suited to a variety of industries and website types.
