Send SMS appointment reminders online

Customers, patients or clients who do not show up for an appointment are a major cost for health care. An unnecessary expense. Send appointment reminders to reduce no-shows and thus save costs. Sending business SMS messages online is now easier than ever, from our intuitive online interface.

If you want to reach your target audience effectively and quickly, the easiest way is via the Send App. This online interface is easy to use by anyone. You don't even need any help of developers. Many companies, whether they are large or small, therefore already use this technology to send appointment reminders via SMS and thus reduce the number of no-shows.

SMS appointment reminders in all sectors

Many hospitals, but also dental practices or doctors, now send out SMS messages to remind the patients of their appointment. This message can contain relevant information, for example not to eat after midnight on the night before the operation. This way the appointment has been brought to the attention of the patient, and he is prepared for the appointment. As a result, the number of no-shows has been drastically reduced in healthcare.

But other sectors, such as banks, hairdressers, lawyers, physiotherapy and so on, also benefit from this user-friendly way of bringing appointments to the attention of customers. With SMS appointment reminders, you reduce the chance that you have unnecessarily reserved time for an appointment that does not show up.
