Many functional modules with technological solutions were developed for the effective work of The Joy system. Only some of them are presented below.
The search system takes into account categorization of services, rating of masters and salons, their working hours, languages of service and other parameters in order to offer the client the specialist and service relevant to his request with the highest probability.
The Joy booking system includes integration with the payment system for blocking and writing off the cost of the order and service commission, making payments to artists and salons, as well as enabling cancellation of booking and money refund.
Integration with Google Calendar has been implemented for salons and craftsmen on the project, which means that all orders are automatically exported to the previously linked calendars. In addition, synchronization with Treatwell Connect has been set up to import records from the Treatwell calendar into the salon owner's order calendar on The Joy
Masters and salon owners have the ability to control all of their cash flows in the system - when and what amounts they will receive. The system provides detailed information (in the form of charts and graphs) about the sources and distribution of incoming funds - from the referral program, salon and outbound orders, and various bonuses.
A very important function for salon owners and administrators is the ability to maintain accounting directly in the system. This module is designed for accounting for cash transactions salons and the formation of cash statements.
Internal service currency, a unique referral program, bounty-campaign, super-games, bonus system. All these modules are parts of the system, aimed at attracting new clients and maintaining loyalty of regular customers
Since one of the main ideas of the project is ease of use and constant accessibility anywhere at any time, first of all a mobile application was developed, which was later complemented by a web version.
Before the official launch of the project, its beta version was launched. During testing, more than 7000 users were engaged during the week of the service, whose interaction was evaluated according to numerous criteria. After that a number of additionally required functionality was revealed, which simplified the work of all the user roles in the system as well as optimized management of the service from the side of its administration. Changes made as a result of beta testing:
Simplified the process of user registration
Added several additional filters in the search process
Ability to display the orders calendar in fullscreen mode
We used many features of our web platform fdForge to develop The Joy health and beauty services marketplace.
