Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Mobile apps are no longer just for personal use. As one former NFL player has proved, they can be a valuable tool for growing a business.
Opened in 2009, Certified Fitness Trainers in Morgantown, WV is owned by Tim Lindsey, a football long snapper who starred at West Virginia University before going on to play in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks.
As his number of clients began to grow, Lindsey needed to find a more efficient way of scheduling fitness sessions.
Without an assistant, Lindsey was unable to book his clients’ sessions during the day. Instead, he spent three to five hours each evening returning voice messages. He then scheduled sessions in a paper day planner or Excel spreadsheet.
This time commitment prevented him from finding new clients. It also drained his personal life.
In short, the scheduling process was hurting his business.
After testing several free online schedulers, he chose Appointment-Plus personal trainer software based on its features and functionality.
“I now can schedule my clients’ appointments instantly at the gym, without having to wait until later in the day,” said Lindsey.
Appointment-Plus provides Lindsey with such features as:
Android and Apple apps allow him to access his schedule and instantly book client sessions throughout the day.
Automated e-mail and text reminders reduce client no-shows.
Lindsey will need to add additional trainer calendars as his business grows and he hires more trainers.
Simplifying the scheduling process has had an immediate impact on Certified Fitness Trainers. Lindsey now has over 80 clients and books between 120 and 150 sessions weekly. He’s also added four new trainers to his staff.
“We use the mobile app almost exclusively,” said Lindsey. “It gives us instant access to our calendars between client sessions.”
Certified Fitness Trainers’ success is yet another example of Appointment-Plus helping businesses in this economy.
“Appointment-Plus is more than just scheduling software,” said Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “It’s a tool to help businesses grow and succeed.”
