To initiate, you will need an all comprising software application. There are certain scheduling and calendar apps which provide tools for project management , team coordination, gaining customer bookings, scheduling and more. 

There are many options but not all are equally valuable. Just be sure to check for the key features that must come with every successful solution when choosing the right app for your needs. Here are the top 4 options from our recommendation.

1. Meeting Tool, Calendly

Calendly has a simple design and relies primarily on Google to register. As with many other available scheduling apps, this one synchronizes with your Google Calendar. It enables you to accept invitations for meetings instead of allowing only the saved contacts to take the free slot. The appointment is added to the guest’s Google or Outlook calendar if you accept an invitation to their meeting to keep records. This is one of their improved features.

Calendly takes care of the meetings and provides the flexibility to arrange it on a weekly or monthly basis depending on your needs and time-slots available. This will not affect your default New Meetings settings. The software does a good job of arranging meetings within a company or members from various departments and also helps you to exchange custom event ties with your customers.

2. Email Tool, Agile 

Agile CRM is a feature-rich system software with highly integrated distribution support, digital marketing automation, and modules for customers. Agile’s online scheduling tools are a real bonus for advertising your businesses as it enables representatives to link their calendar to prospectives to allow them to access available time slots to schedule them as per their own ease. In its email marketing tool, the calendar can be incorporated in campaign emails or directly in your address book, which ensures it is still readily available to customers and prospects alike.

Since scheduling features are embedded into Agile CRM, all of your appointments are traced all the way back to the contact record of the person you meet along with the other encounters they have had with your company and are documented on a chronological timeline that is easy to see.
