Appointment Reminders by Text

Appointment Reminders by Text

Appointment Reminders by Text Appointment Reminders by text just got a major upgrade that will make this process easier than ever.  You are no longer required to have your customers 'opt-in' for their reminder.  Now you can send your Appointment Reminders to any customer with a cell phone. The update will go live on March 17, so be sure to reach out to your KUKUI Marketer if you have any questions.
