Student Appointment Scheduling Software

Step into the future and engage more students.

Booking hundreds or thousands of students for routine academic or financial advisory services and ensuring they meet with the right advisor is a time consuming and error-prone process.  With that said, the easier it is for students to leverage advisory services, the more likely they are to utilize it and be successful.  Letting students self-schedule their advisory meeting results in:

  • More consistent academic advisory meetings.
  • Automated pairing with the right advisor.
  • Automated reminders to ensure the student does not no-show.
  • More successful & loyal students.

What are customers saying?

 

SUMO rescued us from manual processes!

SUMO helped us automate our advising session scheduling process with approximately 1200 students a year. Before SUMO we had to do this manually, a process that was time-consuming and subject to error. The seamless interaction between SUMO and Salesforce enables us to quickly send appointment invites, and easily know when a student has scheduled an appointment. The outward-facing interface is also very user-friendly which makes it easy for our students to schedule their appointments. 

We have worked with Sumo for outward-facing processes for 5 years now and would highly recommend Sumo to anyone looking for a great appointment scheduling solution that is natively built in Salesforce.

Great app for productivity & scheduling

I've managed our relationship with SUMO from implementation to today and can say that it's been such a huge benefit to our organization. As a growing nonprofit that places a high priority on leveraging technology to allow our direct service providers ways to do their jobs, SUMO was a natural fit for us. The implementation process was seamless as their team was always available and very easy to work with. We're now able to more easily set up and manage user schedules. And our favorite feature has been the self-scheduler which has completely streamlined the scheduling process for follow up appointments with clients.

This App has completely changed our processes

The amount of appointments that we are able to make has increased by over 70%. My agents no longer have to play the game of back and forth to try to find a time that works for both parties. This app has been a game-changer for our organization. My agents are now able to concentrate on other clients and communications knowing that they can send the scheduling message and the client is able to self serve.
