AddVenture investment fund and the developer of ITECH Group sites and founder of beauty salons Monet Alexander Glushkov launched a new service in the RuNet for making an appointment with dentists through the Internet, investing $5M. TimeToVisit.Ru service is free for its users, and its monetization is made through the clinics, which pay for the patients involved.
Based on the idea of American ZocDoc, which allows you to find the nearest doctor and make an appointment with him, the Russian TimeToVisit offers clinics and private practitioners to pay for each new patient, and not to spend money on outdated and inefficient methods of promotion. The service offers its customers 100% real reviews about institutions and specialists - it is achieved by allowing review only from people who saw doctor using TimeToVisit service.
The users of the Russian service can check the schedule of dental clinics and make an appointment, find out the cost of their services, receive consultation of experts. Users can choose now more than 50 hospitals and 400 specialists, - the General Director of TimeToVisit Alexander Shcherbin said (who is also the CEO of ITECH Group).
TimeToVisit offers dental clinics a cloud management solution for managing the patient flow. According to the CEO of TimeToVisit Tatiana Golubovskaya, the company reached agreements on full automatic integration with the key players of the dentistry market.
Golubovskaya adds that TimeToVisit currently allows you to search only for Moscow dentistry services, and the company intends to cover all megacities, add spa-service centers, the general health and cosmetology for the next year.
The bulk of funds received from investors will be spent on the technological platform and new users attraction. We do not expect instant profits from the creation of the portal, - said one of the investors of the service Alexander Glushkov. - But long-term perspective and the scaling of service toward related fields (beauty, wellness, spa, and general medicine) make it possible to say that TimeToVisit will pay for itself in a few years.
