BOSTON, MA — May 27, 2008 — TimeTrade Systems, the leader in self-service appointment scheduling, has significantly expanded their relationship with customer Screen4Life, a leading skin cancer screening company, to enable consumers to easily schedule screenings at more than 200 pharmacies of the UK’s largest retailer.
TimeTrade’s on-demand, Web-based solution is also being used by Screen4Life for the second year to schedule screenings for pro golfers, staff and families while on the PGA European tour, which commences with the BMW Championship at Wentworth in May.
“According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer has increased 43% in the last ten years,” said Timothy Dodd, Managing Director of Screen4Life. “Our mission is to provide screening outside the confines of medical facilities to encourage people to get checked early. By offering screening in pharmacies, people can have this easy procedure done while they are out shopping. TimeTrade is a great partner and has definitely impacted the number of screenings scheduled over the PGA golf tour, and we anticipate similar results in retail stores.”
TimeTrade’s Web-based scheduling solution is configurable and scales to support thousands of concurrent users and millions of transactions per month. TimeTrade has enabled many organizations to offer self-service or assisted-service scheduling. Consumers can schedule appointments anytime of the day or night from their computer—the optimal convenience—or through call centers or interactive voice response systems (IVR). TimeTrade confirms the appointments and sends reminders through email. In addition, it enables customers to manage and track utilization of staff and facilities resources, and capture information and preferences in the scheduling process to maximize the consumer experience and leverage follow-through marketing opportunities.
“We applaud Screen4Life’s vision to make skin cancer screening broadly accessible and affordable for everyone and the move into the pharmacies of the largest retailer in the UK reinforces that commitment,” said Ed Mallen, TimeTrade’s CEO. “We are very proud to be a part of a company that makes it easy for consumers to schedule screenings so they don’t forego this very important health check.”
Screen4Life is a leading skin cancer screening specialist based in the UK dedicated to the prevention and early detection of skin cancer. The organization’s mission is to make high quality screening affordable and accessible to everyone by moving screening out of the confines of the hospital or clinics and into the retail environment, including retail pharmacies, health and fitness clubs, retail shopping malls, airports, professional sports organizations and companies.
