Diamond Cutz is located right on Temple University's campus. At first glance you might think it's just a barbershop, but as you step through their door you immediately feel a sense of calm and home. It is designed to be a place where any Temple student, male or female, can come in and receive great service time and time again.
Ryan, from Morgan Home & Lawn, first introduced us to Jay Maraj, the owner of Diamond Cutz. Ryan has been getting his hair cut by Jay for many years, especially since Ryan went to Temple. When we met with Jay all he could talk about was how he wanted to offer a place of peace for any student to come and get their hair cut.
Some of the considerations that went into the design and development of the Diamond Cutz website were the fact that we were dealing with college students. They are typically more interested in a lifestyle look and feel. We also had to make sure the site was completely accessible via mobile device.
We didn't just stop at a website. We wanted to push Diamond Cutz to the edge, so we integrated a brand new custom built system called Mane Time. This system enables Diamond Cutz to book appointments online as well as control all of the content from one administrative portal. We were also able to setup a tablet with Mane Time to enable employees to view their upcoming appointments.
Along with reporting and text/email reminders, Mane Time is a full solution that any Barbershop and/or Salon could take advantage.
