Running a business requires a lot of hard work and time management skills. Especially for fashion entrepreneurs who work a 9 to 5 job or work based on appointment bookings, being able to manage their time properly is very important. An appointment scheduling software like Setmore helps with this greatly.
What is Setmore?
Setmore is an online appointment scheduling software that allows users to manage all their appointments through one calendar. With it, business owners and their clients can connect better and be on the same page with appointments. It was launched by Full Creative in 2011.
The software also makes it easy for users to send reminders out to customers for appointments. It puts its users time back in their hands so they can manage their time better.
What can Fashion Entrepreneurs Use Setmore for?
As a fashion entrepreneur, especially a bespoke designer, you can use Setmore to manage your time better. Since the software allows for customers to go to your calendar and book whatever time they find most convenient for them, this software takes away the stress of back and forth appointment booking off you both.
WIth Setmore, you can also send automatic email reminders to remind your clients of their appointments hours, days, or weeks ahead. This helps to reduce the rate of customer no-show at appointments. With this feature, you can also automatically notify customers and staff when appointments are booked, rescheduled or cancelled.
Setmore also gives customers the power to reschedule or cancel appointments and notifies you of this. It also lets them sync their booking details with their Google, Office or Apple calendars. This curbs calendar conflicts.
Requirements and Features of Setmore
Setmore has both free and paid plans and can be accessed from the web or through the app in Google Play and App Store. The 2 paid plans are similar but the Pro plan which comes at $5 per user per month allows for more users than the Premium plan which costs $9 per user per month.
For first time users, the app requires users to input their name, email address, phone number, and password. On signing up, you are required to input your business name, business industry, working hours, staff details, and services you offer. The services section allows you to input the various services you offer as a fashion entrepreneur, how much you charge for it and the staff in charge.
The Calendar feature allows you to set an appointment up with a client with details of what the appointment is about. From here, you can label the appointment based on its completion status and set up your video meeting.
The Customers tab allows you to enter new customers into the app and search for customers. Here, you can add notes to each new customer so you remember details about them. You can also choose to import customer details from your Google or phone contacts here.
A great feature of this software is the Apps & Integrations tab that allows you to integrate Setmore with your website, social media pages and email. This way, customers can book an appointment with you without having to contact you first.

Based on reviews from Google Play and App Store, most users find Setmore to be a great software. Entrepreneurs feel like they have all they need to set appointments with clients in one place with it.
Some users, however, expressed displeasure over the app changing appointment booking time and crashing. A few others found it hard to record cash payments in the app
