Looking for free appointment reminder software?
Whether you run a hair salon, a dog grooming business, a massage therapy business or any other type of appointment-based business, scheduling software is critical to your success both now and in the future.
If you’re looking for this type of software, no-shows are likely a big part of why. Indeed, research shows time and time again the negative impact no-shows have on your business. One study showed that potential losses could be anywhere between 3% to 14% of your total income.
But the good news is that automated reminders do help.
In fact, this study found that notifications reduced no-shows by as much as 25%.
But scheduling software can help your business in other ways as well. For instance, it can help increase the efficiency of your daily operations by allowing your clients to simply book online and automating appointment reminders. It can also help with marketing and also act as a CRM (client relationship management) and a point-of-sale, to name a few.
If you’re looking for a free appointment reminder software, here’s why our clients choose Yocale.
Why Choose Yocale: Free Appointment Reminder Software
Full disclosure: there are a lot of free scheduling software options on the market.
But Yocale’s free plan, which you can stay on for as long as you want, gives 5 staff access, as well as:
- Email Notifications and Reminders. While the paid version of Yocale will give you access to SMS reminders, the free plan still gives you access to email notifications and reminders.
- Unlimited Bookings and Customers. Yocale’s free plan isn’t just an appointment reminder software. It also allows your clients to book your services online an unlimited number of times.
Here’s some of our stats…
- Encrypted and Secure Lite CRM. This is where Yocale stands out compared to other free options on the market. Yocale has its own built CRM that even free users have access to.
With our CRM, you can do things like create client profiles, generate reports and in general, keep track of each client from a central database.
- Reserve with Google (RWG) Listing. This is what also sets Yocale apart from other scheduling options on the market.
As we like to say, RWG is a revolutionary way to increase bookings because it puts your business on the front page of Google, allowing clients to book you straight from Google itself. However, not all scheduling software options on the market have partnered with Google, meaning that only a small number of businesses have access to the “Book Online” option.
A competitive edge.
- SEO – Optimized Booking Profile. Other free options offer a similar sort of feature as well. But either way, it’s a great way to get your business on a marketplace where customers are searching for businesses like yours.
In a nutshell, a marketplace is just yet another marketing channel but that takes care of itself. Read more about marketplaces here.
- Online Chat Support. Need we say more? Yocale is a small (but powerful!) business, so you get that small business type of customer service experience.

Wrapping It Up
Appointment reminder software is critical to reducing no-shows. But even free software can help with online booking (therein reducing time spent on the phone), marketing, client management and so on.
As you saw above, Yocale isn’t the only free option on the market. But our CRM and the ability to put your business on the front page of Google with RwG is what sets our free version apart from others on the market.
