Managing Student Accommodation Viewings? Try Something New This Semester

Posted by Rebecca Parker on Jan 16, 2017 10:26:00 AM

Right about now the more organised students among the population might be thinking about where they’re going to live next year -- particularly if Joe’s habit of piling rubbish up on the bin lid instead of just putting the bag out is starting to wear thin and they’re thinking they might try their luck with a different set of housemates. That means the rush to get the best flats is about to start, and that means letting agents and student accommodation companies are about to have a lot of viewings to manage.

What has historically been experienced as a bit of a scrum -- group viewings followed by a Wacky Races-style dash to sign the lease -- actually needn’t be. Thanks to the rise in SaaS (Software as a Service), making use of the latest developments in technology no longer requires the big budgets of major agencies for custom development work.

Behind the Scenes of Appointedd’s Native Cross-Platform App Development

Posted by Greg on Dec 28, 2016 10:10:00 AM

Appointedd is a multi-timezone online booking system that helps businesses sell and manage their time.  Up until now we only had a simple iOS app to accompany our main web app, with limited functionality in comparison.  With feedback from our users, we realised more and more businesses require access to Appointedd on the move. It became obvious we needed to expand the functionality of our mobile app, and start replicating functionality already available in the web app over to mobile. We decided we would start from scratch and take a cross-platform approach so our Android users could also benefit from the mobile app.  The first question was: Which technology would we use?

Posted by Rebecca Parker on Dec 26, 2016 10:04:00 AM

Customers are amazing: their needs are the reason you started your business, they keep things interesting, and they bring you shiny money. What’s not to love about customers? Well, aside from those odd few that make you think Sartre might have met them right before he wrote “Hell is other people”, there’s also the little task of finding them. And keeping them coming back. And generally keeping on top of them in terms of confirming, reminding, rescheduling, reminding again...
