Why you should be using management software to stay organised

By Mike Waldon on April 22nd, 2024

Salon Manager is a brand new software system for the hair and beauty industry – designed to be the epitome of simplicity and intuitiveness for ease of use, it’s cloud-based ensuring accessibility from mobile devices or any internet-connected hardware.

Being so easily configurable it is suitable for everyone, ranging from individual users to single salons, multi-users, and multi-site enterprises, including self-employed professionals operating from various salon locations. With a straightforward setup process and seamless transition from other software providers, Salon Manager promises a seamless experience for all types of salons. We spoke to Mike Waldon, General Manager at Salon Manager, about why everyone needs a salon management system to stay organised.

Why you need a salon management system:

The reduction of no shows

It’s essential to avoid losing out on profit and finances, and salon software can help you do this in many ways. At Salon Manager we can send appointment reminders to clients – many clients book their appointments months in advance and can therefore end up forgetting about their future appointments! Sending a SMS or email reminder a few days before their appointment dramatically reduces no-shows (by 60% on average) and if a client does have to cancel, they will do so there and then, providing you with sufficient time to be able to advertise the appointment space and take a new booking without having to lose out on profits. We can prompt clients for deposits when booking their appointments, another great way to ensure your clients don’t no show on the day.

Efficient appointment booking

A salon software system allows salons to implement online booking systems, which streamline the appointment booking process for both customers and salon staff. This reduces the risk of double bookings and enables clients to book their appointments at their convenience, even outside business hours. Gone are the days of the paper appointment book! Now salons can upgrade to online booking systems that allow them to input information more quickly and efficiently and keep all data saved securely.   

Advanced marketing

Many salons struggle with marketing or don’t have the time to create effective marketing campaigns whilst also being incredibly busy on the salon floor. At Salon Manager, we offer an advanced marketing feature, allowing salons to easily create campaigns to keep in contact with their clients, share the latest deals/last minute appointments/salon news, getting high engagement and high open rates. Campaigns can also be tracked easily to see how effective they have been.

Stock management

Counting stock levels to see what products you still have in the salon can be incredibly time consuming, however, with the help of salon software Stock Management features, you can gain optimised stock levels, real-time visibility, streamlined purchasing and you can save on costs. Salon Manager can help automate inventory management, ensuring you never run out of essential products and reducing the likelihood of overstocking too.

These are just a few features that we offer at Salon Manager but that are incredibly beneficial for salon businesses who are looking to simplify management, enhance customer experiences and boost their overall salon efficiency.
