The Shift to Mobile for Reservations and Appointments

People are increasingly using their mobile device to help them manage more and more aspects of their busy lives.  The saying, “There is an app for that” has become a cultural cliché.  Ten years ago, when you wanted to dine out later in the evening you called the restaurant in the afternoon and made a reservation.  Today we can still use the phone to accomplish this task, but we do not have to make a call. 

Booking an appointment or making a reservation is now being done through mobile apps. Normally light years behind the tech trends, the California DMV has even taken advantage of the mobile shift by  making it easier to make an appointment through their mobile app.  Any business that deals with appointments and/or reservations can and should be taking advantage if this feature. Our team here at I’m In Marketer has made this easy.

An I’m In Marketer mobile app includes a free appointment and reservation feature.

Customers now expect to be able to reserve everything from movie tickets to airline flights using their mobile device.  If your business does not offer a mobile app with a reservations and appointments feature, it’s a good bet that your competitors do, or shortly will, offer them this convenience.

There are many obvious candidates for this feature such as restaurants, salons, spas, etc. What may not be as apparent is that many other businesses, taxicabs for
instance, can greatly benefit from a reservation feature on their mobile app.

What about a car repair shop? Open slots for routine procedures like oil changes and state vehicle inspections can be filled online without taking up valuable staff time.

Virtually any business that regularly needs to fill appointment slots can benefit from this feature.
