Beauty Salons: Why It's Time to Rethink Your Scheduling Tools

Posted by GOrendezvous on Apr 26, 2018 10:33:14 AM


All the Sassoons, Fekkais, and Hershbergers of this world started cutting hair in relatively small, unknown salons. They gained a cult-like following because of their talent and because of their strong work ethic. As a salon owner, your prime source of revenue comes from services you offer your clients. It all depends on how many you see per day, week, and month.

We know you rock your scissors like a modern day Edward scissorhands but it's sadly usually the logistics and scheduling tools that slow salon owners down. You want to optimize your time and not necessarily maximize it so you can take advantage of every second of your work day without penalizing your clients or your practice.

Posted by GOrendezvous on Apr 19, 2018 11:36:56 AM


Selling a product or service is the ultimate goal of any small business, no matter what it is selling. The hair salon business is a great example of a service everyone needs.

Salon Booking Software: How It Can Help Grow Your Revenue

Posted by GOrendezvous on Apr 5, 2018 11:26:09 AM




If you own a salon and have the luxury of having a receptionist, you know that most of their time is spent on the phone, answering and calling clients for their next appointment. They are tied down on the phone all day, so they can't solely concentrate their energy on the people in your salon. If you don't have a receptionist, you're the one who's answering all the calls... And because of this, the customer experience for the actual clients in the salon can sadly be put aside even if it's unintentional. But what if you could automate and digitize the appointment booking process for clients? A salon booking software will allow you to offer a personalized service by greeting customers warmly, serving them refreshments, selling additional products at the cash, or doing anything else to make your clients salon experience sensational.

A better customer service can increase your revenues by making your clients feel like their business is appreciated. Find out exactly how a salon booking software can help grow your revenue.

Appointment Book: 6 Signs You Shouldn't Use a Paper Version

Posted by GOrendezvous on Mar 22, 2018 3:25:58 PM


‘Paper vs digital’: It is one of the biggest dilemmas of our era. Even though the Internet has taken over our lives, and that we all now carry our phones everywhere, we have to admit that they are incredibly handy in our day to day activities, whether it is work related or not. Paper and pen have become almost obsolete for most people. Cursive writing is now almost considered an ancient form of writing.

Digital appointment books are so advanced now that it’s hard to believe businesses worked without it before. They can synchronize your calendars, contacts, notes, and more, all in one single, easy to access place. You can even synchronize all your information from your phone to your computer, and vice versa. Then how come so many small business owners still using paper systems that keep slowing them down?

You’ve probably heard this before: “Oh my God! You’re a massage therapist? Your job must be soooo relaxing.” No, it’s not. People tend to forget that you’re the one giving the massage, not receiving it.

Another type of stress that can often occur in the massage therapy business is booking your appointments and keeping track of all of them in a neat and organized way. Find out how a massage booking app can improve your daily management.
