Schedulicity Debuts Pop-Up Offers at DEMO Fall 2011

Leader in Online Appointment Scheduling Provides Small Businesses With a Powerful Tool to Fill Last-Minute Cancellations With Discounted Offers On-the-Fly

SANTA CLARA, CA and BOZEMAN, MT--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - -- DEMO Fall 2011 -- Schedulicity (, the leader in online appointment scheduling for small businesses, today unveiled Pop-Up Offers, a new scheduling feature within Schedulicity that allows service professionals to assign a discount to a recently cancelled or newly open time slot and within minutes, make this new appointment available to their customer base. Pop-Up Offers provides a fast and efficient way to fill last-minute cancellations or other open appointment times falling within a 48-hour period, so service professionals can avoid the cost of losing the time slot completely.

"Appointments are the inventory for a service professional, with a finite number available each day," said Jerry Nettuno, founder and CEO of Schedulicity. "Last-minute cancellations can be detrimental to the health of a business so quickly filling it with a discounted appointment is beneficial because when the time slot is gone, it's gone forever. Pop-Up Offers helps service pros fill all available slots easily and quickly by, in essence, offering a 'last-minute offer' on their own terms."

"This is not only a very clever and cool way to fill an opening in your calendar, it helps small business owners quickly increase sales," said Matt Marshall, executive producer, DEMO. "It's clear that Schedulicity embodies the creative out-of-the-box thinking that make for an exciting and innovative DEMO Fall 2011. We are pleased they chose our stage for launch."

More about Pop-Up Offers

At the same time the service professional "pushes" out the offer to its client base, Pop-Up Offers can be posted to their social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook. In addition, the offers will automatically appear in select promotional areas of Schedulicity's portal to help increase the chances of it being seen by a consumer. Mobile support is available for all Pop-Up Offers.

Schedulicity takes the effort out of time-consuming tasks by simply automating and streamlining the scheduling process for daily services. Appointment-dependent small businesses that offer scheduling 24 hours a day through Schedulicity's digital channels are now able to easily and effectively attract new business, increase the frequency with which their current clients book appointments, decrease cancellations and concentrate on providing the most efficient service during their business hours.

Beyond the standard subscription rate, there is no additional cost to the service provider for Pop-Up Offers. Schedulicity is, as always, completely free for the consumer.
