Barbershop Booking System
People want to book appointments 24/7, and they can do that on the Furbellow & Co website by filling in a simple booking form. Appointments can also be made in store and logged via the WordPress admin area.
When an appointment is made in either of these ways, the in-store barber is notified, while an appointment reminder is sent to the customer on the day.
The online shop was built with WooCommerce and also connects to the physical shop till using Square.
Products can be easily managed and added via the WordPress admin area, and then loads onto their in-store system which runs off an iPad. Even cooler, when someone buys something in-store, it automatically syncs with the website to update the stock level online.

What Furbellow's said
We wanted our website to reflect the ethos of the way we run our business - good old fashioned customer service built on tradition - but also we wanted to appeal to a young client base and keep up to date with technology. Paul has worked alongside us to design a site which ticks all these boxes.
I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for a web designer based on his excellent communication, complete clarity on time frames and pricing, and his patience and approachability throughout the process and after.Ceri Oakes, Furbellow & Co
