No More Missed Appointments: Automatic Reminders with Chilled Butter

Ridding your business of missed appointments and scheduling conflicts is a surefire way to protect your reputation and maintain your revenue stream – and Chilled Butter is here to help.

Our software comes with automatic reminders to keep you and your customers in sync, preventing the potential chaos that scheduling conflicts can bring. 

Picture this:

Your regular customer is supposed to schedule touch up appointments once every 6 weeks with you, but forgets every time.

Traditional ways of managing appointments like phone calls, emails, or even Instagram DMs can lead to a frustrating no-show and a wasted time slot.

But with Chilled Butter, we’re flipping the script entirely.

Our system automatically sends reminders to your customers about

  • Booked appointments 
  • Follow-up appointments that need to be booked
  • Forms to be filled out before the service
  • Deposits that need to be paid

You get to customize these notifications based on your preferences – a text the day before or an email one hour prior. The options are endless. 

These automatic reminders help by serving as a gentle nudge to your customers. But the magic doesn’t stop at customer convenience. These reminders also give you, as a business owner, peace of mind.

You can rest easy knowing that each appointment in your schedule is more likely to follow through. No more flipping through calendars, no more hassling customers and wasting time with manual follow-ups, and goodbye to the worry of unused time slots!
