Squarespace Acquires Acuity Scheduling
Fix8 Media Website Designers are in Love with Squarespace’s First Acquisition
Squarespace and Acuity Are a Match Made in Internet Heaven
4.24.19 Like many of our business clients, we at Fix8 Media website design and development in Longmont, Colorado, use an online scheduling tool for booking consultations, working sessions, and meetings. A few years ago, we found the answer to our scheduling needs in a wonderful company called Acuity Scheduling, which integrates seamlessly with the Squarespace platform. We’ve been thrilled with Acuity since we started using it—which is why we were even more pumped when we heard the news that Squarespace has acquired Acuity! It’s truly a match made in Internet heaven!
Now part of Squarespace, Acuity enables potential customers and existing clients to view real-time calendar availability and book appointments with you independently. You can sync the software with your calendar to get automatic updates and keep track of your appointments.
We’ve integrated Acuity for a number of our Squarespace website clients, including the following:
Acutonix.com. This California acupuncture and wellness center needed a scheduling tool to accommodate clients at its two clinic locations. Acuity makes booking an acupuncture appointment a breeze, with a link to schedule poised prominently on the Squarespace website home page.
JobJenny.com. With a number of appointment types and times available to her clients, along with her own packed calendar, career coach Jenny Foss required a flexible scheduling tool that would automate the appointment-making process. “We probably save two hours a week in scheduling time alone with Acquity,” says Foss. “It’s a wonderful time-saver and gives our clients the ability to easily find consult times that work best for them.”
612Design.com. As the owner of a home remodeling company, Eric Carter of 612 Design knows how important free consultations are to his potential clients. In order to make the process of booking a consult with him easier, Eric integrated Acuity Scheduling directly into his Squarespace website, offering available times to interested clients on his booking page—removing all obstacles to scheduling time to chat about a kitchen or bathroom makeover!
In each of the above examples, as well as in Fix8 Media’s personal experience, Acuity Scheduling has improved the client experience and eased the process of scheduling appointments on the business side. Acuity has only enhanced the Squarespace website user experience for us and many of our clients—which is why it’s no surprise the two are now one. Way to go, Squarespace, on making a very smart scheduling tool choice!
