Appointedd Offer Retailers Free Click and Collect Booking Service To Meet Latest Lockdown Restrictions

In response to the Scottish Government’s latest Covid announcement, Appointedd, the online booking and scheduling platform, have announced that they are offering all essential retailers free access to their Click and Collect Plus service to allow retailers to meet the tightened restrictions and continue trading safely.

The new regulations, which came into force throughout Scotland from Saturday 16th see all but essential retailers remain closed with essential retailers only, able to offer click and collect services with bookable outdoor collection timeslots.

Appointedd’s Click and Collect Plus solution has been specifically designed to meet social distancing requirements and offers online appointment booking with built in buffer settings ensuring there is no danger of queues forming and unnecessary contact. Set up is quick and easy, allowing retailers to meet the new bookable collection requirements within minutes, and offers a frictionless booking experience for customers by adding a booking link to order confirmation notifications.

Click and Collect Plus is part of Appointedd’s Shop Safely for Covid suite of products developed by the award winning scheduling and booking platform to meet the ever evolving restriction guidelines and keep shoppers safe.

Appointedd has worked closely with retailers throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, offering digital solutions allowing retailers to continue trading safely during all the different restriction tiers.  Since launching their Shop Safely For Covid Services, Appointedd have seen a 300% increase in retailers using their services, from  Liberty London and Galeries Lafayette Department stores to Charlotte Tilbury, SpaceNK and Furniture Village.

Appointedd Founder and CEO Leah Hutcheon said; “Covid-19 has had a devastating effect on retailers with the shutting of physical stores, supply chain disruption and delivery pressures. Offering a click and collect service is, for many, one of the few opportunities to keep any revenue coming in . We feel very lucky to be in a position to support fellow businesses – we did it in the first lockdown when we offered our services for free to independent businesses, and this time we are opening up our bookable click and collect service to all retailers to help them keep their customers safe.”
