The project has been developed for Glamrd, an on-demand beauty, grooming and salon concierge services provider. The underlying purpose of the project is to develop a mobile app solution to facilitate the customers get high-quality salon and beauty services, whenever and wherever they want. The Glamrd app is a great platform for beauty and salon professionals, artists, and stylists to scale their business and earnings.
The client wanted us to develop a mobile application based on iOS platform wherein customers can request salon services and Glamrd’s expert stylists will cater to their service needs at their chosen location. There are two types of users on one single app: 1) For Customers – who can view services, prices, stylist details, book appointment and chat with stylists. 2) For Stylists – who can view customers’ appointments, accept and decline requests, change availability and chat with customers for service related queries.
A salon or beauty appointment needs both customers and stylists to be available at the same time. The project objective is to deal with both at the demand and supply side. Our goal was to make booking and payment process as convenient as possible for customers. Another challenge was to manage schedule page list during stylist unavailability.
We used Core Services, Core OS, Cocoa Touch, Media, and Appcelerator Titanium for app development; Java, Swift, Objective C, HTML, CSS, C, and C++ for programming; and Adode Photoshop, Marvel, Invision, and Sketch Paper for app designing. For Glamrd website, we used PHP, MySql and JSON format.
We designed and developed Glamrd Website, iOS App, and Backend and Web services. The Glamrd App features in-app calender, dynamic invoicing, tracking option, reviews section, and chat feature. The mobile app also provides stylists an option to upload post-service picture to showcase their work and for promotion.
