They were using a complicated database process to manage their inventory and guest reservation and checkout process, but they had a vision of integrating their database with an app for guests, caseworkers, and staff to schedule appointments and report on checkouts, available items, and next available visits.

We worked with the St. Anthony’s team to thoroughly document the app requirements before creating detailed wireframes and design mockups.

Once those were all fully vetted and approved by the team, we built the app and data integration using a combination of Vue.js to create a deceptively simple scheduling and checkout interface, coupled with WordPress for the integration, scheduling controls, and user management.

  • We are so fortunate to have found Cornershop for this ambitious project in which they helped us build a client-facing appointment scheduling website and staff service management interface. They delivered to us an extraordinary product, both functionally and visually. I credit the fact that so much of their team comes from a nonprofit background, and that their leadership seems to genuinely value and be attuned to real-world issues concerning equity in access to services and user experience. I'm very grateful they brought a sensitivity and understanding of these concepts to the relationship from the beginning.
