FAQs Prior to Purchasing
There is an initial installation/setup fee and then a monthly recurring fee. The initial installation/setup fee includes ongoing support for your team. Go to pricing page for specifics.
Nope! We don’t believe in forcing offices to pay for a product that isn’t bringing value to the office. We are confident that you will love using SKED and do not feel the need to lock you in.
You need a server computer to install SKED on. You can then use any computer with an internet connection, to log-in and manage your SKED. If you want to use the barcode feature, you will need a barcode scanner that is able to scan mobile barcodes. We can recommend a few if you don’t have one.
Your office will first register for SKED through our website pricing page and schedule an installation date as well as order barcode scanners for your office. Once SKED is set up and running there isn’t anything that needs to be done on a daily basis to keep it running.
SKED will cut down on the amount of time your office spends rescheduling appointments when practice members have something come up during their scheduled appointment. It will give you more time to focus on the practice members that come into your office helping to build rapport with each and every one of them. This is also a benefit to your practice members as we all know we are unable to know when the unexpected will arise which allows them to open up the app and reschedule an appointment if something comes up.
Also with the automated messaging your office will free up time not having to send out reminders to pms each morning. Our system receives a prompt from the appointment type and a reminder will be sent out automatically saving so much time for your front desk.
After installing SKED on your server computer, it will never have to be installed anywhere else again. You are able to access your SKED admin through https://app2.sked.life and using your credentials login from any computer.
No, there is no limit to the number of automated messages your office has set up to send out or one-time messages that your office chooses to send.
