GoReminders Overview

GoReminders is a cloud-based, multilingual appointment reminder and SMS scheduling service for businesses of all sizes. The reminders and confirmation tool can be used to schedule text messages and emails to send to clients in order to reduce the number of no-shows and confirm appointments. GoReminders includes tools such as automatic calendar sync, customizable reminder texts, SMS reminder scheduling, recurring appointments, and more.

Appointments can be scheduled within GoReminders from a desktop, or any iOS or Android device, meaning scheduling can be managed on-the-go. New appointments can be added to the calendar by filling out a simple form, and appointments can be set up to recur at defined intervals. Businesses are able to create a range of customized appointment reminder texts which can be triggered to send to customers in the run up to the appointment date, and messages can be created in any language depending on customer needs. Businesses can choose whether they would like to send reminders to customers via email, SMS, both, or none, and the method of contact can be personalized for each contact.

GoReminders facilitates appointment confirmations with the ability for clients to confirm their attendance in response to reminder emails or text messages. When the confirmation feature is enabled, clients can confirm their attendance by replying with “C” for “confirmed” or “R” for “reschedule”, and the status is automatically updated within the calendar to inform staff. Reschedule requests send an automatic email or SMS to the relevant employee so that communication can be initiated. Integration with Google Calendar, iCal, Outlook, and other calendar tools means that all appointments confirmed within GoReminders can be synchronized automatically to the user’s personal calendar.

Since we started using GoReminders our volunteers remember to show up for their scheduled shifts.

Eliminated the need for store managers to call their scheduled volunteers to make sure they remembered to come. If we can keep our thrift shop open, we make more sales which increases the donation we make to the agency we support, so everyone wins!

Pros

We use GoReminders to remind about 50 volunteers a week of their scheduled shifts at our nonprofit thrift shop, and it has eliminated our problem with no-shows which led to our inability to open the store for our customers. GoReminders is very easy to use, and it takes me about 20 minutes to set up an entire month's reminders. If someone's schedule changes during the month, and I need to edit which volunteer will be on a shift, it takes only seconds to make the change in GoReminders. All of the volunteers have expressed their thanks for this notification (we chose 2 days before) so they don't miss their shifts and can find a sub if needed.

Cons

I can't think of anything about it that is disagreeable. It's easy to use, takes little time, and has helped us keep our shop open every day.

Pros

No more reminder phone calls. Saves on staff time plus customers like receiving a text vs. phone call.

Cons

We thought it might not customize to our industry well but it's very flexible and did just fine. Features to describe the appointment and length are greatly appreciated.

I love reminder sites and appointment sites. I also love this type of software. If someone is looking for a quick site or software to quickly set up appointments this is it. If they are looking for something advanced they may be a bit disappointed. This helped me get my jobs done and help me figure out what to do for each client. I was able to put information in the appointment setup tab area.

Pros

I can create a new appointment for my clients with no hassle. I love how I have the option to put the phone number of the client or I can put the email address of the client. I also love how the calendar is exactly in the area it needs to be when I am setting up an appointment for a client. It’s not confusing to figure it out and you get great deals with this service. I love how I can set reminder templates and I don’t have to keep going back to create new ones. I also love how the customer service chat is constantly available and you can contact someone quickly to help you. There is also an area which makes things easier to put together. There is an area where you can customize the customer's name and you can input it without an issue.

Cons

I dislike how every single time I log in. There are chat buttons popping up and memos. I know they are trying to show that they care, but it can be a bit annoying. I don't like it. I wish it was smaller or at the bottom. Also, I wish the deals were better. They are okay, but this is a good program. It needs better deals.

Great product. So far, the best SMS Texting system I've found for my business.

Pros

I like that I can have my clients reminded about appointments at 2 different pre-appointment times. We use 4 days ahead of time and 2 hours ahead of time. I like the point-and-click calendar and time scroll settings.

Cons

I don't like the fact that I can't have the same reminder sent to more than one person at a time. For example, I have a client who's parents are divorced, but they both need to be sent reminders; so, I have to set up 2 separate reminders for the same client.

Startup was a little tricky, but great performance since then!

Pros

GoReminders has been great for us! We waste a lot of time when people no-show for their appointments, especially when we have to bring in specialized staff to run the appointments. This was the first automated reminder tool that we sought out and tried and we are very pleased. We really do think this has helped us with time management.

Cons

As with any automated system, you don't have the ability to actually talk with the client. This can be difficult when the client wants to ask a question in advance of the appointment, but it's something that you need to be okay with. There were a couple minor hiccups setting up the reminders, but we have had no issues since then.

Response from GoReminders

Thank you for the lovely review of GoReminders. We are pleased that it helped with time management and reducing no-shows. To have a conversation with clients before an appointment, we suggest setting your reminders to send two or three days beforehand. When the client replies you'll receive a notification and you can reply accordingly. Hope this is of help :)
