Streamline Your Business Activities With ABIC’s Online Resources

Keeping up with technology and software is a top priority in the beauty industry. ABIC’s Tracey Horden reveals the importance of being tech savvy as a business.

The Aesthetic & Beauty Industry Council (ABIC) understands that as with any industry, the beauty and aesthetics sector need to adopt the latest technologies to streamline and facilitate a wide range of business, administration and other procedural functions.

From organising and monitoring daily business activities, overseeing staffing procedures, gathering data analytics and effectively marketing your business, a range of online technologies can contribute to simplifying the processes.

Administrative technologies can be especially helpful in monitoring a businesses’ workflow and staffing activities, while generating insights into your business – allowing managers and owners to plan, oversee and grow their business in a highly competitive market.

Implementing Industry-Specific Systems to Manage Your Business

There are many innovations that can automate hiring and staffing procedures, freeing up time for managers and business owners. ABIC offers members a range of online Human Resources templates, fact sheets and forms to streamline your hiring and management procedures.

Data analytics tools generate unparalleled insights about recruitment workflows, supporting managers wanting to acquire a range of industry-specific talent. These tools can provide intelligence about the best candidates, the costs of adding new employees to a team, staff attrition rates, job candidate performance, and other information that improves the hiring processes.

The beauty and aesthetics sector requires more data than ever for tracking applications, interviewing job applicants, complying with Fair Work legislation and frameworks, and onboarding successful candidates.

Exclusively designed and available for members, ABIC is your centralised, online resource to a vast array of industry-specific forms, templates and more.

At Your Fingertips – Accessing Your ABIC Resources Remotely

ABIC has curated an extensive resource library to assist members with their businesses and careers. Your ABIC resources are located in one central online library. The resources are divided into categories and are accessible based on your membership type.
