What Salons Want From Management Software
Published 21st Dec 2022
Investment in salon management software continues to grow in a post-pandemic world as business owners realise the benefits of using technology to relieve their administrative burden, as well as providing 24/7 booking access to clients, but the question remains: what do salons want from management software? Oliver Cahill, chief commercial officer at Premier Software explains that technology can be more than a scheduling solution, “When used correctly it can act as your marketing manager, stylist, beauty therapist, receptionist, loyalty scheme manager, accountant and business partner all rolled into one.” With so many software providers on the market it can be hard to know where to start when deciding to make that switch from print to digital. The most important thing is understanding what you want from your software and how it can benefit you, your business, and your client. “When you have ingoings and outgoings, expenses, and salaries to look after – sometimes pen and paper just doesn't cut it. A good salon management software can help keep track of all this,” says Miranda Mathews, managing director of UK & Ireland at Treatwell.
