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.

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). Click the profile icon at the bottom middle of the screen to begin searching for and selecting a client. 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.

Use of the Boulevard Professional App on Android follows the same general instructions as above. Please reference the images below to show the experience on an Android device.
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).
