Issaquah-based online appointment scheduler jacknabbit.com recently announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with New York-based wireless application provider Premdotcom.
The partnership will allow Internet users to not only receive customized quotes on the wireless Internet, but instantly schedule a real-time appointment.
“It’s a perfect match,” says jacknabbit.com CEO Richard Schulenberg. “Our alliance with Premdotcom will give customers the best opportunity to connect with a business that fits their needs exactly.”
In order to request a bid, customers visit an online yellow pages directory and submit specifics on the services they need and a price they want. Networked businesses then respond with their lowest bids. Once a decision is made, a customer can then schedule a real-time, online appointment with that business through the jacknabbit.com application.
Both companies will be showcasing the inter-operability of their technologies at the Kelsey Group Local Online Commerce Conference in Boston later this week.
Jacknabbit.com, a privately held company, also recently enterned into an alliance with InfoSpace, extending its leading scheduling technology to InfoSpace’s extensive affiliate network of merchant banks, regional bell operating companies, wireless carriers and websites.
