An appointment scheduler app for the consumer sector is similar to an appointment scheduling application for the health care industry. However, it's generally designed for consumers who need help with their personal or household finances. A consumer-facing appointment scheduler app can be used to set up appointments with investment advisors, tax preparers, and other financial professionals.
Appointment scheduler apps have a lot in common with other appointment scheduling apps for travel and transportation, such as booking apps and transportation rental apps. Some of the most popular consumer appointment scheduler apps today are Calendly, TimeTrade, ScheduleOnce, and BusyCal.

An appointment scheduling app for consumers can grow rapidly by demonstrating the amount of value it provides to users. Consumers choose their appointment scheduler apps based on the platforms that speak directly to their needs. When a user's schedule is free, an appointment scheduler app should be able to provide immediate availability information and easy booking options via push notifications and text messages. When a consumer is in need of an appointment, the app should show her when the next available time slot is and how much it will cost. The app should also suggest alternative providers if no appointments are available at the time she requires.
An appointment booking app for the consumer sector faces risk of poor user experience, fraud committed by users, and cyber-attacks. An appointment scheduler app should have a live support team to handle customer inquiries and complaints. It is also a good idea to have a hotline that customers can call if they suspect that their credit card information has been compromised.
