Ease of Use
Papertrail Survey Says: A word from Kat “I do the majority of communication through email. I like doing it that way because then you have a copy of the conversation in the case that a problem or conflict arises.” “Well it's usually whenever they are picking them up or dropping them off, but since they feel rushed, I find myself e-mailing a lot.” “I use all types of communication. I ask each client which method they prefer. I use email mostly, texts, and phone calls.” Our Experience A word from Kat: The importance of clarity and smoothness
Google Calendar Love Affair
Quickbooks + Online Tools= Happy Nat A word from Nat: A Word from Nat Survey Says: “My biggest frustration is balancing administrative tasks and marketing with providing the actual therapy. I do not know enough about technology to use it to cut my time down. “ “I would love to have an office assistant, several therapy rooms, great waiting space and clients to fill it...without funding issues!” “I’d love to have an efficient process for booking and rescheduling clients, a receptionist to handle incoming calls and requests for information.” Our Experience A word from Nat A word from Kat Online Vetting

I do not use it to communicate or to connect with others.” “I do EVERYTHING online..” “I don't really use [web based tools]. Gradually moving into this millenium. “ “None of the above. To me that would require too much additional time.” Follow along at http://tinyurl.com/webprez

She has lots of clients, but with school starting, she is having to completely rearrange what she thought was a set schedule for the school year. She keeps 1 day planner with her as she travels and another at her desk. Her client’s mother told her of scheduling changes today during session, but the car calendar isn’t completely updated yet. Could a web based tool be helpful here?
