Boost Efficiencies and Reduce Wait Time with Online Scheduling Government Services

TimeTrade’s online scheduling solution is engineered to help government agencies at the federal, state, and local level apply Internet technology to gain better control over scheduling processes and improve resource utilization throughout their operations and programs.

TimeTrade appointment scheduling software makes it possible for government employees, customers, call centers, and third-party affiliates to conduct scheduling transactions via the Web.

With Web-based scheduling, everyone involved in the scheduling process can share real-time visibility into the inventory of available resources and timeslots. And there are two choices for the kind of government services scheduling solution you can implement – an internal system accessible only by authorized employees, or a customer-facing application open for self-service scheduling.

With online self-service scheduling, your customers can go online at any time of day or night, check availability, and schedule a timeslot. TimeTrade also integrates with interactive voice response systems for self-service scheduling via the telephone.  Alternatively, TimeTrade makes it easy to handle telephone-based appointment requests through a scheduling coordinator or separate call center. Either way, the Web helps you take control of the scheduling process through a centrally managed system.

Our solution is not a group calendaring application, but rather a rules-based scheduling and resource management system that supports reservations and appointment transactions as well as activity and event registration. And TimeTrade is a real-time system, so there is never a chance of double booking or confusion. TimeTrade software evaluates the availability of your underlying resources (including people, facilities and equipment) and applies appropriate constraints based on your unique business rules.
