Demandforce Customers: Top 3 Features to Use

Are you getting the most out of your portal? We want to make sure our customers are taking full advantage of all of the tools at your disposal. Trying out new features in your software is the best way to effectively optimize how you communicate with your clients. If you want to effectively grow your business, be sure to explore these marketing and communications features.

Thank You Emails

One of the best ways to show appreciation for your clients is to thank them! Business owners that aim to keep their clients happy and coming back for more shouldn’t overlook the value of a simple thank you email. Not only does it keep the lines of communication open between you and your clients, you can also turn it into an opportunity to receive more reviews. Include a link to your business’ review site in the email to encourage happy customers to leave a review.

Appointment Reminders

Missed appointments are a detriment to both your business and your customers. Ensure that your customers never miss an appointment again by scheduling appointment reminders. Once an appointment has been scheduled through the portal, our system will automatically send out a reminder email to the customer. You can control how soon the reminder is sent before the appointment and the delivery method (email, text or voice reminders). Our convenient system will help make no-show appointments a non-issue for your business.

Email Campaigns

Promotional campaigns and newsletters are a great way to draw attention to a specific product or service that your business provides. Using the portal, it’s easy to set up a custom campaign to engage with your customers. Choose the delivery time, the recipients and whether you want to create a recurring campaign. We also offer pre-built campaigns that your business may find useful if you’re just getting started with Demandforce. Whether you want to create a service specific campaign or a seasonal one, our system streamlines the process.

Give these three features a try for improved communications with your clients. Need help getting started? Reach out to your Customer Success Manager with any questions about our marketing and communication tools.

How automated communications provide a better patient experience

If you’re the owner of a small business or healthcare practice, you are probably no stranger to appointment reminders. Studies have shown that appointment and reservation reminders of any type—voice, email, text, or postcard—can have an immediate and positive impact on the number of confirmed appointments and completed bookings.

Yet despite the benefits of appointment reminders and personalized communications with customers and patients, many small businesses and practices have not optimized this process, and staff can find themselves frustrated or overwhelmed by the time it takes to track down unconfirmed patients or organize a system of sending and following up on booked appointments.

When managed or set manually, appointment reminders and other customer communications can become unwieldy and stressful, especially for a small staff that already has a long list of day-to-day tasks they need to complete. Even with the best of intentions, small details can slip through the cracks, and the overall patient experience can suffer.

The solution: automated communications

The solution to this dilemma facing small businesses and practices is simple: automate as many communications as you can for your patients. This is a win-win solution, as it not only makes life easier for your staff, but it increases the entire experience for your patients.

What can you automate?

  • Appointment reminders & confirmations
  • Requests for online reviews
  • Patient feedback via surveys
  • Email campaigns and recall reminders

Automating communications doesn’t need to be expensive or complicated either. Demandforce offers a complete patient communications solution by providing automation assistance for all of the above and more. For example, Demandforce offers an online scheduling system that automates the booking process and the reminder process, making tedious tasks an afterthought. Email and text reminders can be sent through the system automatically without any additional actions required by your staff.

A better patient experience

By automating your patient communications, you are making sure that your patients and customers connect with you in a seamless, consistent manner. This removes gaps in the communication timeline, and also eliminates instances where you contact a patient only to learn that they have already been contacted previously. A platform like Demandforce also integrates with your current practice management system, and leverages the information you have there to make sure that all your communications with patients are relevant and timely to that specific patient.

In today’s modern world, patients expect more than just a one-off positive experience – they want to establish a long-term relationship with their healthcare providers, and one way you can make your patients and customers feel special is by sending them customized messaging that syncs with their previous visit history and other preferences.

It’s becoming easier for patients to widen their search for healthcare providers, and so offering a better patient experience through automated communications solutions will help you stand out from among the crowd.
