    Seeking Feedback -

    Hello - we have recently added "another" layer of assistance to the age old issue of service providers wanting to keep appointments within a certain mile range of other appointments. As "some" of you know we already have a tool called "Distance Incentive" that incentivises consumers to choose times when they are considering you online for booking and within a certain mile range of your existing appointments. (like 5 or 8) Well......

    I just built the opposite and would like to speak with and show someone that runs a couple of trucks and services at least a 20 miles radius for their market. The new tool says if those considering you online are (X) miles (like 15 or 20) away from existing appointments, don't let the opening even if available before or after that appointment be booked. Make them choose another time/day when you are available. The concept has been asked for before and now I want some real practical thoughts from the field.

    So if anyone is willing to spend about 20-30 minutes with me in a webinar online, please reply here, email me at steve@fittlebug.com , or call me 630-444-2000.

    Thanks - I appreciate it as it is always best to get thoughts directly from the people in the field.

    Merry Christmas - Steve

    Hi Steve,

    We are looking at adding your system this winter and we run 2 trucks with a larger service area. Feel free to email me at Excel_Carpet1@yahoo.com

    :headscratch: that would be very helpful. would the system also try to group them with other appointments that are- say 20miles away in same area or direction?
    I'll probably contact you soon Steve-

    John - That's the concept. You control what the distance parameter is in miles. That's the good news. The bad, you control the distance parameter in miles.
    Call me - I think you'll like it ... Santa
