  • Manual Sending of Notifications

It is semi-automatic notification sending: DIKIDI automatically creates notification messages, and you send them manually. This saves time on composing reminders and helps ensure that all necessary messages are sent to customers.

You can send notifications from your phone number or from your social media and messenger accounts.

How it works and how to set up manual notifications for clients

The cost of notifications (SMS, WhatsApp, Telegram) can be viewed in the section “Notifications” - “Settings” - “Enable”.

Appointment Notice

They come to a customer upon the fact of creating an appointment, contain basic information about the upcoming visit and are a confirmation that the customer is signed up for the service. A convenient message to which the customer can always return and update information in memory for effective time planning.

In addition, the same notifications can be configured for Employees so that they always have up-to-date information on their schedule:

— New appointment

— Change an appointment

— Cancel an appointment

— Before visit

Visit reminders to customers

It comes to customers a day and/or a few hours before their visit. Reminders have flexible settings: how many reminders and for what time to send. It's also possible to set up automatic reminders for all customers, so you do not have to make it individually.

Visit confirmation request

When setting visit reminders for customers, you can select “With visit confirmation”. Then, along with a reminder, the client will receive a link to confirm the visit.

Review and tip request

Collecting feedback from customers requires some effort, since satisfied customers are not motivated enough to visit a website or social network specifically and write a review. It is much easier to do this when they receive a message on their phone immediately after the visit with a direct link to a page where you can leave a review and tip if desired.

In the DIKIDI service, you can activate automatic sending of such messages to customers and quickly collect not only reviews, but also tips.

Return visit invitation

Invitation for a return visit allows you to work individually with each customer and notify him that it's time to book for a service exactly when deadline is right. You can set the interval between appointments individually (3 weeks for a manicure, a month for a haircut, etc.)

Notification of reward points accrued to customers

You can award bonuses to customers or give them as a birthday present.

In order for the loyalty programs to work effectively, it's necessary to notify customers that they have been awarded bonuses that they can spend and save on the service cost.
