Appointment-based businesses can now automate their admin, billing, and scheduling with Fons, a mobile and web-based app for business owners of any discipline. We are a service designed to empower yours.

Scheduling Simplified

Plus, you and your clients can easily reschedule or cancel a lesson when something unexpected comes up.

Flexible and Powerful Billing Options

Fons supports hourly and subscription-based billing models, and even custom rates for individual clients.

Per Appointment Billing

Appointment-based billing is simple. Set a rate for an hour of your time, and Fons will calculate how much to charge clients based on the duration of each appointment. Individualize rates per client, as well as make one-time adjustments for a single appointments.

Subscription Billing

Set a rate and duration (1 week, 1 month, 3 months, etc...) for your subscription offering. After a confirmed appointment, Fons will automatically bill the full amount upfront and start the client's subscription. You retain control of the number of appointments per subscription period.

Automatic Client Payments & Deposits

Stop hunting down payments and create a consistent stream of income. Clients are automatically charged at the end of an appointment via ACH bank transfer or credit card. No more buzzkill conversations about payment collection.

Schedule & Confirm Appointments

Invite your clients, then schedule and confirm your appointments using Fons.

Meet With Your Client

Focus all your time with clients on the lesson and their development. No more buzzkill conversations about missed payments or paperwork.

Get Your Deposit

Following the end of an appointment, your client's credit card is billed and you are both notified. No more invoices, missed payments, or outstanding balances.
“Before Fons, I was piecing together multiple spreadsheets and paying a bookkeeper to handle most of my business administration. Fons handles everything for me so I can give up the spreadsheet scene and save money on bookkeeping.” - Beth P, Academic Coach

Minimize No-Shows and Last Minute Cancellations

You and your clients get notified automatically of any upcoming appointments, payments, or requests. Need to reschedule an appointment? No problem, we’ll let everyone know. With Fons, you instantly know whenever something important happens.

“I love that it reminds when a lesson is coming up and gives me the option to cancel or change a lesson if needed.” - Tom B, Parent

Upfront Cancellation Policy Enforcement

We’ve built the simplest, best practices approach to running a teaching business. Your clients agree to your lesson cost, duration, and cancellation policy upon creating a Fons account. If a customer cancels a lesson within your cancellation window, they will still be charged for that appointment unless you stop the charge.

“With Fons, my policy is enforced and I never have to chase a late payment again.” - Emily P, Teaching Artist

Work On Your Timeline

Quickly and easily track and organize your teaching schedule to fit your lifestyle. Setup your office hours to enable clients to make appointment requests only during times you’re available.

“Once I set my teaching schedule, I never have to worry about my availability. My students can see when they can schedule lessons and it eliminates the back and forth.” Guy T, Sports Coach

Family Schedule Management

For businesses that work with more than one client per family, Fons let’s parents add and manage their kids’ schedules and keep track of payments with a single credit card or bank account.

“With two kids that each have private lessons with several different teachers, I wish they were all on Fons to make my life easier.” - Katherine M., Parent
