The Fall Semester Rush: Appointment-Plus Academic Scheduling Software to Automate, Simplify Scheduling at Hundreds of Colleges, Universities Nationwide

Scottsdale, AZ – In a true sign of the upcoming fall semester at institutes of higher learning, Appointment-Plus academic scheduling software is seeing an increase in the number of university systems, colleges, community colleges and technical schools choosing its leading online scheduling solution for automating, streamlining and simplifying the appointment and reservation processes on campuses nationwide. They’re turning to Appointment-Plus for its proven functionality, dependability and flexibility to efficiently manage a variety of student appointments and facilities, such as academic advising, counseling, professor meeting times, financial aid, testing and room bookings.

And they’re making the scheduling process convenient for both student and faculty alike by allowing students to book their own appointments or reservations 24 hours a day through any Internet-connected device, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and other mobile scheduling devices.

“Scheduling an appointment by phone or in-person is not convenient, especially for today’s college students who prefer to conduct such tasks online,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-Plus. “And some simply do not have the time to book these during normal office hours, given their busy academic schedules.

“That’s what makes Appointment-Plus so popular among university systems and institutes of higher education, as it provides the perfect scheduling solution for today’s Internet-connected society.”
