The Appointment-Plus Online Scheduler Calendar automates the docking process for distributors and warehouses so they canimprove the delivery process during the busy fall and winter holiday seasons. Drivers and carriers can schedule their own delivery times from their onboard laptops, smartphones and other Internet-connected devices.
Carriers can also sync with software applications they already use, such as QuickBooks and e-marketing services Constant Contact, iContact and MailChimp.
The Appointment-Plus Web-based booking application marries online scheduling, payment-processing, accounting and e-marketing services in one system. Upcoming features include syncs with Google and Microsoft Outlook calendars, as well as a new user interface.
Record-keeping and reporting capabilities help users gather and analyze delivery information and record actual arrival and departure times, a necessity when determining “hold” times at the docks.
Pricing starts at $39 per month, with no long-term contracts. All signups receive a complementary training session with a professional set-up coach during their 15-day free trial period.
