Know the company scheduling trends to look out for

Business strategies rely on predictions and data-informed decision-making. When business owners prepare for what is next, they can better provide an infrastructure for success.

Here are three scheduling trends business owners can expecting the year to come and how hiring a virtual receptionist can increase your return on investment.

Increased demand for accessibility, agility, and flexibility

This upcoming year is all about exploring new ways to improve the customer experience. One way to improve customer experience is to focus on convenience.

Many business owners are improving the customer experience by improving flexibility in scheduling with virtual receptionists. Virtual receptionists allow business owners to offer around-the-clock service with after-hours and overflow coverage. Without around-the-clock live chat and text features, business leaders are leaving opportunities on the table for competitors to take advantage of.

Mastering the art of agility in 2023, including adapting, innovating, and quickly responding, is going to be crucial to thriving as a company.

Prioritization of digital leadership

Business owners will continue to explore cutting-edge technology and tools to improve efficiency. This includes employing customer support tools via live chat. One thing not to overlook is the data that can be derived from using digital tools. These analytics can ensure business owners are making data-informed decisions.

Even the simplest of data can help to inform decision-making. For example, if a business owner uses a call or website service like Nexa Receptionists, we provide data that can be used to create a customized business strategy. Business owners who prioritize digital leadership can have a greater insight into their customers’ behaviors than their competitors who do not make it a priority.

Coverage gaps, high absenteeism, and staff turnover

The trend in staff shortages is expected to continue in 2023. Instead of focusing on recruitment or retention measures, business owners are looking to augment traditional staffing solutions. [2] This includes outsourcing receptionist and administrative services to ensure potential and existing customers can get assistance when they need it. Virtual assistants and receptionists can lead to fewer scheduling errors and can reduce labor costs.

Business owners can prepare for staff shortages business owners should seek out other opportunities for increasing conversion and connecting potential customers with solutions.
