  • A highly scalable system that allows organizations to easily accommodate increases in workload, users and growth.
  • Web services, including integrations with existing software systems.
  • The most configurable scheduling software system available.
  • 24-hour support from its headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz.
  • Dedicated business and support contacts.
  • “Turnkey”, existing solutions that are instantly ready to go live.
  • Custom graphic user interface (GUI) development.
  • Robust reporting capabilities.

Organizations that currently utilize Appointment-Plus for their dock-scheduling needs include ConocoPhillips, Crescent Crown Distributing, EcoLab, Pepsi Bottling Company and Sonoco.

In addition to the aforementioned services, Appointment-Plus provides every client with the popular standard functionality that has made it the premier online scheduling program for improving dock-scheduling processes. This includes online driver self-scheduling, which enables carriers to book their own delivery times online and at their own convenience, 24 hours a day; automated e-mail and text message reminders sent prior to scheduled drop-off time; and robust record-keeping and reporting capabilities.

Many dock scheduling operations that use Appointment-Plus online appointment scheduling software have reported significant monetary and time savings, as dock supervisors and managers can better schedule their staff hours and reduce the likelihood of missed or late deliveries. This includes reduction in overtime pay, which previously was commonplace as dock personnel was oftentimes unaware of the precise carrier arrival time and, therefore, unable to adequately plan workers’ schedulers.

“Appointment-Plus dock-scheduling software is quickly spreading among facilities nationwide and throughout the world,” La Loggia adds. “It’s one trend that’s here to stay.”
