Overview

The Boulevard Professional App is available in the Apple App Store for iPhone and Google Play for Android. The app allows service providers to quickly view and edit work schedules and client contact information on the go. Boulevard Professional is designed to compliment, not replace, the main Boulevard desktop version. All changes or additions done on the app will instantly be updated on the main Boulevard dashboard.

Note: The images and instructions below are for the iPhone app, which is very similar to the experience on Android. Images for Android can be found at the end of this article.

Client Profiles

Within the Boulevard Professional App, you can view and update client contact information, and also easily call, text, or email clients. You can also take a photo and upload it directly into the Client Profile (to add a photo in notes, you must enter text into the text box first before the box will popup to "attach image" to that note).

Important: SMS text messages and emails that are sent through the app will show as being sent from the personal mobile number and personal email of the sender.

Staff Performance Metrics:

If given access (via privilege group settings), your employees are able to see an overview of their performance for any given date range by clicking the graph icon at the bottom of the screen.

The totals shown in this area are total, gross, sales (so the numbers are not taking the staff members' commission into account in this data). They can see their total appointments, clients, utilization, prebooked %, and service/product/gratuity sales.

These metrics refresh at the same frequency that beta reports refresh (currently not instant, but every ~2 hours).

If you have any questions or need assistance with the Professional App and its features please reach out to Support via Help Chat or by emailing support@blvd.co!
