Get job reminders on GeoOp and keep your schedule on track

by | 5 Jul 2023 | Geo Updates

Say goodbye to missed appointments and hello to SMS job reminders on GeoOp. This newly released feature keeps booked jobs on schedule and your customers up to date while saving you the headache of lost time and money!

On average trades and services businesses experience 5% of customer no-shows each week. It adds up over time, which is why activating SMS job reminders is a good way to manage this risk while improving the experience of your customers.

Job reminders on GeoOp can be triggered one week before a booking, as well as the day before, to ensure your customers are kept up to date while given time to reschedule work in advance if needed.

When you enable SMS job reminders on GeoOp, you will:

  • Save time by eliminating manual contact with clients, allowing for better task prioritization and increased productivity
  • Reduce no-show rates as clients receive reminders, resulting in improved attendance and punctuality
  • Demonstrate professionalism and enhance customer satisfaction by showing commitment to clients
  • Streamline operations and reduce human error by establishing a consistent and efficient communication process with clients

Keen to see how it all works? Hop into your GeoOp account and take the tour.
