BOZEMAN, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Schedulicity (http://www.schedulicity.com/), the leader in online appointment booking for small businesses, announced today its strategic partnership with L’Oréal Professionnel. The partnership will enable the beauty brand to help its network of salons further establish client relationships and streamline day–to-day scheduling through L’Oréal Professionnel’s Social Expert Facebook program. A key feature of the program allows clients to book salon appointments directly on the individual salon’s Web site, Facebook page or Schedulicity’s directory. Schedulicity was chosen as the appointment booking solution because of its leadership position in online appointment booking and its proven ability to easily integrate into any Facebook business page or Web site.
“By partnering with Schedulicity on our newly launched Social Expert program on Facebook, we are offering our salons’ customers the convenience of booking appointments online anytime, day or night,” said Anne Cary Booth, interactive marketing manager at L'Oréal Professionnel. “In addition, this will provide salons with a tool that can ultimately help increase the number of clients and sales with much ease.”
Consumers book millions of appointments each day with service professionals like hairstylists and most of these appointments are still made by phone and managed with paper and pencil. Finding a time slot that is mutually agreeable to both the consumer and the professional can be a daunting ordeal filled with frustrations and inefficiencies. With Schedulicity, service professionals no longer have to worry about the hassles of scheduling such as wasting time playing phone tag, over booking appointments or late night phone calls.
“We’re thrilled L’Oréal Professionnel selected Schedulicity as their appointment booking partner as we have a shared belief that the salon experience begins at booking,” said Jerry Nettuno, CEO of Schedulicity. “Schedulicity takes the effort out of time-consuming tasks by completely automating and streamlining the entire scheduling process. As we help increase efficiency and boost sales, we look forward to helping millions of L’Oréal Professionnel hairstylists.”
