Advantages of Investing in a Salon System
The beauty industry has recently seen a rising growth as many beauty salons, and spa are coming up each day, leading to stiff competition. Employing beauticians and investing in modern furniture in your salon does not guarantee success, but rather what you will do differently from the rest of the beautician in the market. Several salon owners do not consider a salon software as a powerful tool in their business and take up other activities such as marketing, employee training, etc. as the crucial activities in their salon business. Salon point of sale software is a powerful tool that will not only help in day to day managing of your salon but will also help the salon business grow and in return, increased profits. We look at how a point of sale salon system can be beneficial to your salon business.
The salon system has a major function been appointment booking and scheduling where clients book appointments from the comfort of their homes, or contact the salon for scheduling and the employee books the appointment for them. It becomes easier to manage daily activities with the system. Once the client books an appointment, the system assigns him/her to a particular employee and shows all the clients booked to a certain employee, making it easier to calculate commissions. The system will automatically send clients reminders a few days or hours to their appointment via a simple text message or email.
The point of sale system will assign clients to specific employees who specialize in the particular service the client is looking for. By default, the system will allocate clients to employees who specialize in the particular services according to the clients requests and calculates commissions at the end of the services.
The system also has the capability of preventing appointment bookings when employees are away for leave or lunch break. The employee will only need to mark the scheduled off days or break times on the calendar and mark them as unavailable to prevent any bookings.
The system also helps in totaling costs at the end of the service. System starts with booking, checking in, billing, issuing receipt and checking out the client at the end of the service. With automation of all processes, the cases of cash mishandling are minimized.
It also keeps records of all the inventory such as washing and drying equipment, spa equipment, massage equipment, and all the salon products and disposable. Stock taking becomes an easy task with salon system. The system also automates reordering of the inventory every time each product hits the reorder level ensuring that at no time will work be interrupted by lack of required products and disposables. The process of ordering and receiving goods becomes easy and efficient with the salon system whereby the user requests and receives after delivery.
