How to create an app to manage your appointment bookings?

Written by Muriel Santoni  on  Tuesday 13 December 2022

If you manage a service company, you probably know how tedious managing customer appointments can be: you have to answer the phone, agree on a date with the customer, and put it on your calendar, all the while being careful not to make any mistakes... In short, it is a time-consuming and sensitive task because mistakes in scheduling appointments can considerably impact your organization and create friction among your customers.
As you can see, the solution that allows you to gain time and reliability is to create an app to manage your appointment scheduling.

Offering an online appointment booking service via an app has huge advantages for your customers, and consequently allows you to stand out from the competition.
With an app, your customers can book appointments 24/7. No need to wait for your opening hours, they can choose their slot at any time of the day or night. They also gain autonomy and you gain time: your calendar and your available slots are displayed, so your customers can choose the one that suits them best without having to discuss it with anyone. Everyone wins: your clients have immediate access to the information they are interested in and can choose their slot quietly and without pressure. On your side, you drastically reduce the number of phone calls you will receive and therefore interruptions in your working day.

The ability to book appointments online has become a major argument for many consumers to choose their service providers. It is a feature that will give your business a modern image and will definitely help you in its development.

App Store Connect remains open during the holiday season

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Friday 9 December 2022

Good news!

Once again, Apple won’t be closing down the App Store to developer submissions over the holidays, as it has in previous years. 

"The busiest season on the App Store is almost here! Make sure your apps and product pages are up to date and ready in advance of the upcoming holidays. We’re pleased to remain open throughout the season again this year and look forward to accepting your submissions. On average, 90% of submissions are reviewed in less than 24 hours. However, reviews may take a bit longer to complete from December 23 to 27." 


This will be the second year Apple has kept the App Store Connect platform open through the holiday season. For example, last year, App Store Connect was closed from December 23rd to December 27th. 

This is great news for developers who can keep submitting new apps or updates. 
However, Apple does warn that during this busy time, reviews might take longer. 

For your GoodBarber iOS app, we do recommend having your app ready for submission before December 23rd to avoid any delays in your publication. 

This applies to apps distributed to the general public on the App Store, and to Custom Apps distributed via Apple Business Manager.

If your iOS app is distributed internally outside of the App Store via an Enterprise account, this has no impact on you

What's new at GoodBarber? November 2022

Written by Mathieu Fancello  on  Wednesday 7 December 2022

This month no jealousy! We worked on two features, one for eCommerce apps and one for content apps.

This option can allow you to show the extent of your catalog references to your customers even if your stock is momentarily unavailable, or even to enhance the success of one or more products while waiting for a restocking. If you plan to restock these products, keeping them displayed in your catalog can be a good business strategy to keep your customers coming back to your store. 

For content apps, it's a new and much-anticipated feature that we're pleased to introduce: the Appointment Booking extension ! This option works in sync with Google Calendar. You can connect one or more of your Google calendars and use them to manage your appointments.
