pickAtime's intuitive SaaS-based solutions, including parent teacher conference scheduling and other scheduler offerings, provide the flexibility for schools and universities to overcome the impediments in appointment scheduling. The parent teacher conference scheduling solution, in particular, allows K12 administrators to first set up an event schedule with date and time. Using this, parents can book an appointment with the teacher at any time, from anywhere. Teachers, on the other hand can view their appointment schedule in real time. Through the calendaring features, parents, students and administrators can be fully sure that their calendaring application is always up-to-date with the latest appointments. “We also offer a ‘lite’ version of our scheduler that smaller schools—with limited budget—can use to set up conferences within an hour,” says Anne Taves, Director of Client Services, pickAtime.
pickAtime leverages their engagements with numerous educational institutions to augment the efficiency of solutions. “The additional enhancements and personalized scheduling functionalities on demand are delivered within days, not weeks,” says Anne. “As a result of our continual enhancements, we are able to offer the richest feature set in online appointment scheduling.” For instance, the solution allows school admission officers to limit the number of appointments to a threshold value on any given day, so that the staff can chalk out sufficient time for their other important tasks.

Educational institutions use pickAtime for their other scheduling requirements such as guidance counselor appointments, school tours, admissions interviews, transportation scheduling, career fair appointments, and teacher training. “Our all-inclusive online scheduling product comes in handy for course selection meeting and college counseling appointments as well, providing a familiar user interface for parents,” says Anne.
pickAtime’s solutions are cushioned by a unique customer support. “Our ongoing client engagement allows us to continually refine the front end and the back end user experience,” highlights Anne. For the future, pickAtime plans to enhance the capabilities of its appointment scheduling solutions and continue to work with schools and universities to understand the user process and make improvement in their scheduling programs.
