New Agreement Promises to Make the Most of Freemium and Paid Products with Agendize APIs
MONTREAL, Quebec - July 28, 2016 - PRLog -- Agendize, Heise RegioConcept and Sellwerk are pleased to announce a new agreement that will give millions of German consumers the ability to book appointments online with their favorite local businesses.
The two publishers will feature two products developed from Agendize Online Scheduling. The first, "Light Calendar", will be a freemium service that allows business owners to offer their customers appointments online, while syncing their calendars and managing bookings entirely free of charge. The second, a more advanced service called "Profi Calendar", will come at a charge to its business users but allow for advanced integration of Agendize's native CRM, email marketing, and other features like SMS notifications before appointments.
With a reseller model that Heise RegioConcept and Sellwerk intend to expand to multiple platforms and websites like dastelefonbuch.de, dasoertliche.de and gelbeseiten.de, Agendize is now deploying its scalable backend and powerful suite of APIs to serve even more marketers across Europe, beating out local competition and engaging more consumers as a result.
"We will offer a free test period to all our clients who are interested in Online Scheduling", says Michael Oschmann, CEO of Sellwerk. "That way they can experience the benefits of the new products first-hand. We were very pleased with Agendize's powerful suite of APIs and the ability to customize interfaces in producing a German-language version for our clients. Having Agendize as a preferred partner will add crucial value for them."
"Agendize's durability and scalability stand out from the rest," adds Ansgar Heise, CEO of Heise RegioConcept. "Their Online Scheduling is a proven conversion app that we are proud to offer our clients, who will be pleased at the ability of our millions monthly visitors to finally book appointments with their local businesses."
