How well do you currently manage your farrier business schedule? Do you find yourself running late for appointments, or arriving to appointments only to find that the client has forgotten you were coming? By learning to better manage your schedule, you can increase your productivity – and your profits. Here’s how.

Schedule Geographically

Have you ever had days when you felt like you were driving in circles? One appointment was located in some out-of-the-way location, then you had to drive in the opposite direction for another appointment, and then turn around and come back again for your next? It’s so important to schedule your appointments according to their location, as well as according to the client’s availability.

The Farriers App simplifies this process. It offers a map view of your appointments and clients, so you can quickly and easily see the best scheduling route for your business. It means less time wasted between appointments, less driving, and less wear and tear on your truck.

Make Your Next Appointment at the End of Each Appointment

It’s a simple technique, but you’d be amazed at how many people forget to schedule the next appointment during their horse’s trim. Make scheduling another appointment part of your routine during each visit. This ensures you get another appointment on the calendar right away, and can help to avoid scheduling conflicts later on as your schedule fills up.

Always Perform Reminder Calls

There’s nothing worse than driving out to a client, only to discover they’ve forgotten about the appointment and there’s no one available to hold the horse. Performing appointment reminder calls takes up a lot of your time, though – unless you have The Farriers App. The App sends out email and SMS appointment reminders, so you don’t have to.

Keep Your Schedule On You – Always

Always have your schedule at hand so you can schedule your own personal appointments and outings around your work. Digitizing your farrier business is one way to do this, but The Farriers App is another, simple way to make sure you can always access your schedule.

With The Farriers App, your calendar is always available to you on your phone. The visually friendly calendar immediately shows you which appointments you have, how long they last, and where your free time is. It’s a great way to avoid scheduling conflicts so you don’t have to worry about shuffling appointments around later.
