vCita LiveSite creates an online presence for your business - a place where clients can easily interact with you and your team. On your mobile-friendly LiveSite, clients can learn about your business and services, as well as communicate with you efficiently.
Make LiveSite your own by defining which actions your clients can take - for example, requesting an appointment, registering for a class, paying for services, uploading documents, and more.
Further customize your LiveSite by editing the icons, images, and colors to reach your desired look and add all the business information you wish to make available for your clients.
You can easily share your LiveSite with your existing clients by emailing them a direct link from within your vCita account, or by adding it to your email signature and email campaigns.
To invite potential clients to your LiveSite, you can add it to your Facebook page, LinkedIn profile, website, or any other place you promote your business online.
LiveSite is where you want your clients to be because it is the one place where they can contact your business without any distractions, the way you intend.
Your LiveSite also includes a secure client portal where each client can view their past correspondence with your business, set or reschedule their next appointment, share files with you, and see their complete history with your business. The client portal helps retain customers and provide better service by giving them an easy way to communicate with your business and take action on their own.
