Agendize was founded in 2003 and is headquartered in France, with four regional offices in Montreal, Brussels, New York and Mexico. The app was founded by Alexandre Rambaud, an IT professional, to combat the scheduling difficulties he faced in his own professional life. The original team spent the first 3 years building the app before they received funding in 2006. Agendize is currently used by some 100, 000 companies including Videotron, Desjardins, Quebec City, and Evoca.
Most appointments scheduling apps cover only their own territory - appointments scheduling - meaning you need to subscribe to other apps for other customer communication needs and hope they integrate. Agendize combines the functions of a number of separate applications in one, combining live chat, scheduling, calling, and analytics in one.
Agendize is dedicated to improving all round customer service, not simply in the capacity of scheduling. This further driven by social sharing, Agendize integrates with social networks, blogs, instant messengers, and GPS devices so your users can share and send contact information, events and links.
Agendize offers a no-frills, plain and simple, predominantly white interface. A navigational side bar gives access to all the features, such as Call Me, Chat, Schedule Appointment, Form, Send to, and Share. All of the features are easily customizable, with further tabs, options and detailed information located within each feature section. The customer facing widget can be customized to meet your brand, and is just as straightforward to use and the desktop app.
The mobile scheduling app shows two main tabs, calendar and clients. Information is displayed in a simplified manner, the calendar tab shows a straightforward list of all your appointments in a time and date ordered list. While the clients tab shows the name, contact details, and recent appointments made by your client. The analytics feature is the only section with a splash of colour, showing engagement metrics in graphs and numbers.
You can sign up via the Agendize website by clicking on the “Log In” button at the top righthand of the screen. This leads you to an online form to fill in with your name, email address, password, phone number and website. This will give you full access to the app for 30 days. No credit card is required for the free trial.
