Every year we all look forward to that highly anticipated midnight celebration which for some, is set to mark a turning point in our lives.
Resolutions can set you on the right path for a prosperous new year, so below we have suggested some PPS new year resolutions which you can apply to your practice to ensure your success in 2017.
Resolve to make the most of your time
Modern day life is hectic, we have evolved into a technological society where the tools that we have built to make life easier actually start to consume our time. Smartphones and tablets are now permanent fixtures in most people’s hands or pockets – so make the most of that gadget by logging out of Facebook and in to PPS Express!
PPS Express fits perfectly into your busy schedule putting your practice essentials at your fingertips no matter where you are or when you need them! As a web-based solution, PPS Express can be accessed on any device with an internet connection so switching from your smartphone on your commute to your desktop PC or laptop when you get back to the practice is seamless!
PPS Express is the perfect solution to allow you to manage your appointments diary, clinical notes and client billing. For just £10 per month you ‘ll wonder what you ever did without it!
Resolve to be more social
Ok, so we’ve just touched upon our digital age idea of ‘socialising’ above. You might feel like you’re covering all bases with your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, but when was the last time you reached out to your clients? Regular communication with your patients can boost customer satisfaction, reduce missed or cancelled appointments and the odd promotion here and there can boost revenue too!
PPS makes it nice and easy to ensure that you’re in touch with your clients using automatic appointment booking confirmations and reminders. Set-up your own personalised templates so that your clients receive a personal greeting alongside their booking details then just sit back and relax as PPS sends them out to your clients!
Wondering how you’ll tell all of your clients about the fantastic Christmas offer you have? Or that new treatment you’ll be offering from January? PPS has you covered with mailshots!
Run reports to find the right set of clients, create a fancy email template to showcase your news and check out our built-in html wizard to add a bit of pizazz to your message!
Resolve to learn new skills
Over time, day to day tasks become ingrained in our memories and things like technology can become part of the furniture. Getting into a daily routine can make it easy to start overlooking certain things or stop thinking outside the box which can mean you could be missing out on making the most of your software!
PPS is constantly updating; adding new and intuitive features to help enhance your experience and make your life easier!
So from time to time we recommend brushing up on your knowledge with one of our training options!
Whether it’s new staff, a business expansion or you’re just after a refresher, we can come to your practice for the day to ensure you’re getting the best out of PPS! With a PPS specialist in the office for the day you can ask as many questions as you like and the training can be personalised to suit your practice needs.
If you don’t quite have the time to set a whole day aside why not book a one to one tutorial online. An hour with one of our PPS experts will help you with those specific areas you have been struggling with, we can also give you tips and advice on how to ensure you’re doing things in the best possible way!
We also offer webinars; each session covers one specific area of PPS in detail complete with a full set of course notes to follow. Pick a date and time to suit you and book via our website, brushing up on your knowledge has never been easier!
Resolve to be successful
Over the course of the year it is easy to lose track of what’s going on in the business end of your practice. To ensure you’re moving in the right direction use PPS reports to keep track of diary statistics, appointment statistics, client cancellations, stock movement and more!
PPS’ built in reports wizard makes it really easy to analyse your practice data. Everything that you put into PPS can be pulled back out and each standard report can be customised to drill down into that data even more. Every custom report that you create can be saved to a list of ‘favourite reports’ to make it easy to use them again so that you can keep an eye on those KPI’s!
Whether you decide to keep up to date on a daily basis or just like to check up at the end of the year, each report can be broken down to show results on a daily, weekly or monthly basis so you have a firm grasp on what’s happening in your clinic.
So we’ve set out a few resolutions which should get you off to a great start with PPS in 2017! We’d also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all of our clients for their continued support over the last 12 months.
We’ve continued to expand our PPS family to ensure our software remains the most up to date, comprehensive and competitive private practice software on the market. And we couldn’t have done it without you! So here’s to another successful year in partnership with you, our most valued asset.
