Online appointment-booking leader offers its services to small business owners in all 10 provinces
BOZEMAN, MT (May XX, 2011) – Schedulicity, the leader in online appointment booking for small businesses, announced it has successfully expanded its services into Canada. Schedulicity is now available in more than 1,800 cities across North America.
Canada marks Schedulicity’s first expansion outside the U.S. The company was able to gain footing in seven out of the 10 provinces within one week of its February 2011 launch. Schedulicity has since gained traction in all 10 provinces, with the largest presence in Ontario followed by Alberta and British Columbia.
“Schedulicity has created a pent-up demand with both consumer and service providers in countries beyond the U.S., including Canada,” said Jerry Nettuno, CEO of Schedulicity. “We are looking to capitalize on the incredible momentum we’ve seen in the U.S. and are already experiencing paralleled success in Canada.”
Schedulicity is a real-time, online appointment calendar that streamlines the scheduling process between service-based businesses and their clientele. It allows these businesses to make their schedules/services available to current and potential clients through multiple digital channels, such as websites, Facebook, Twitter and the schedulicity.com portal.
Small business owners across the country have already begun to see the benefits of streamlining the appointment-booking process with Schedulicity. Charmaine Cianciullo of Peppermint Spa in Manotick, Ontario, began using the service shortly after the launch and has already seen a 15-percent increase in revenue since using Schedulicity.
“Schedulicity has given me more time to focus running my business, instead of answering e-mails and phone calls,” said Cianciullo. “My clients now have the ability to book and manage appointments at a time that is convenient for them.” More than one third of appointments at Peppermint Spa are booked after hours on Schedulicity. Cianciullo uses Schedulicity’s e-mail marketing capabilities to inform clients about new promotions, tips and DIY beauty recipes.”
Schedulicity has begun addressing the option of expanding into other international markets.
The news of this expansion comes on the heels of the launch of Schedulicity’s class scheduling module, which provides service professionals with an efficient and powerful way to quickly add classes and workshops to enhance their growing businesses.
Schedulicity is the leading online appointment booking solution for small businesses. To date, more than 4,000,000 appointments have been booked through Schedulicity in more than 1,800 cities across the U.S. and Canada. More than $300 million in appointment-based commerce is being booked per year using Schedulicity.
