There are over 900,000 badminton players in the UK, yet only six centres here come up to international standard. One of these is operated by Badminton Wycombe, who asked us to build a booking system that would operate on a mobile device. There’s nothing more frustrating for a player than booking a court and then turning up to the venue only to discover that it is been taken. The app eliminates this problem entirely by allowing customers to book a court and make instant payment, thus securing the space. It also enables Badminton Wycombe to maintain a database of customers.
In fact, Badminton Wycombe were so impressed with the success of the app that they commissioned us to design a new website and booking facility, thus integrating all three elements and bringing them into the 21st century. It was an outright win all round – staff benefit from a reduced admin workload, courts are used to full capacity and the whole business has been streamlined without any negative impact on employees or customers.
