An Appointment System is a structured way of managing and organising appointments for business, healthcare, or personal use. It involves processes for booking, sending reminders, rescheduling, and cancelling appointments.

Key components of an Appointment System include an appointment booking platform, a calendar to visualise appointments, and a reminder system. These components work together to create a seamless flow from booking to completion of an appointment.

An efficient Appointment System plays a critical role in time management. It ensures that all appointments are accurately scheduled and attended to, minimising wasted time and maximising productivity. For businesses, it also improves customer service and satisfaction by reducing waiting times and making the appointment process smooth and efficient.
