Why MarketBox is the Best Appointment Scheduling Software

It provides a complete service

Unlike some appointment scheduling software options, MarketBox handles the whole process from initial booking to final invoicing.

It offers flexible booking options 

The flexibility of the software means it’s just as easy to schedule a single appointment as it is to book recurring sessions, and if you offer package deals, then MarketBox can take care of that too. You can also customize appointment options around staff schedules, allowing clients to choose when and who to book without picking up the phone. 

It has real-time availability updates 

You never have to worry about double bookings as the appointment calendar automatically updates availability based on bookings, cancellations, or appointment extensions. 

You can set location parameters and travel zones

What makes MarketBox unique is that it has been designed to work seamlessly for businesses with mobile workforces. As an appointment scheduling software, clients can filter by area to find the closest technician, service, or office to them. And with the option to assign travel zones to individual employees, you can minimize travel time too.
