And for those last minute cancellations, you can send deals to customers to fill those vacant slots.

RCS or Rich Communication Services is right around the corner. In fact, if you're on an Android device, you may already be using RCS without knowing it.

RCS seeks to help bridge that gap by utilizing the most used app, Messaging. By giving it a facelift, a whole new world of opportunities open up for businesses and consumers.

Google has deployed RCS on most Android devices in the UK and the US and it's a matter of time before it gains further adoption between carriers.

Considering the fact that text messaging is the most used messaging service in the world (ahead of facebook and email) RCS can really give text messaging new life. In fact, RCS is estmated to be worth $74 billion by 2021
