Do you know how much your podiatrist practice is losing due to inefficiency?
Take a wild guess.
The answer is anywhere between 20% and 30% of your revenue every single year.
While this can be a frightening number, the good news is that you can save your practice a lot of money by improving the way you currently run it.
What we’re specifically talking about is automating your workflow.
22% of your staff’s day is spent on repetitive tasks that don’t actually contribute much to your podiatrist practice.
This is simply inefficient.
When you automate your workflow, the software takes care of manual tasks so that your staff can spend their time on higher value tasks.
In turn, your practice becomes more effective and competitive.
And you save a lot of money in the process.
Now that we have your attention, the question becomes, ‘How can you make your practice more efficient?’ How can you automate your workflow?
Enter Yocale’s Zapier integration.
Zapier connects your podiatry software, Yocale, with all of the other apps you use (Google Calendar, Gmail, QuickBooks, MailChimp, etc.) and automates tasks that you would otherwise have to manually do.
You may not have considered it, but your staff spends a lot of time manually doing tasks like sending emails every time a new appointment is booked.
The Zapier integration, however, completely automates these manual tasks and processes so that your staff can spend their time on higher value tasks.
We will now go into more detail about how the Zapier integration works, the benefits of automating your workflow at your podiatrist practice and how to set it up.
How Yocale’s Zapier Integration Works
Zapier is an app that allows you to connect all of the web applications you use to automate tasks in-between those apps.
Yocale has now partnered with Zapier so that Yocale users can automate many of their tasks that they perform between Yocale and other apps/sites like Gmail, Google Calendar, QuickBooks, MailChimp and so on.
So, instead of having to manually block time off in Yocale every time you have a new Google Calendar event, for example, Zapier does it for you. This is called a “zap.”
Here is an example of all of the apps you can connect Yocale with:
Here is a list of some of the most popular ways to automate Yocale – i.e. the most popular zaps.

Use the Zapier Integration to Save Your Podiatrist Practice Time and Money
The above headline above says it all: the Zapier integration saves your podiatrist practice both time and money.
Here’s the thing about manual tasks. These tasks are routine and make your employees’ workflow much less efficient. You staff ends up spending their time on low-value tasks which don’t add anything productive to your practice.
The result is that it drives costs up and decreases your profits.
Why have your staff do things when you could have technology do it for them?
Automation gives your staff more time to spend on more high-value tasks, which drives down costs and boost your profits as a result.
But, did you know that businesses that are automating are also the ones who grow?
The Small and Medium Business Trends Report from Salesforce found that small businesses who automate their business are 1.6X more likely to grow than the ones who don’t automate.
How to Use Yocale’s Zapier Integration
Step 1: Log into you Zapier account and then click on the ‘Make a Zap’ button at the top of the page:
Step 2: You will then be asked to select your Trigger App. For this, you want to choose ‘Yocale.’
Step 3: Next, choose your trigger.
Step 4: Next, you will be asked to test the first stage of your zap.
To do this, you can click on the blue ‘Fetch and Continue’ button to test your Yocale trigger by having it fetch an existing booking.
However, if you don’t have past bookings in your calendar, you can select ‘Skip Test and Continue’ instead.
Step 5: Under ‘Action,’ you can go ahead and choose your app (QuickBooks, Google Calendar, MailChimp, etc.).
Step 6: Select your particular ‘Action’ from the list. Complete the remaining details to complete the zap (i.e. choose your Account, Set up your Template and Test this Step)
Step 7: Lastly, you will be prompted to turn your zap “On.”
