Because who has time for organised chaos?

We’ve all been there – madly ferreting through filing drawers to locate that old booking form or receipt or wasting valuable time bent over the appointment book, trying to work out what the hell the therapist before you wrote in there in shaky pink glitter pen.

But there is a better way to do things, thanks to technology, which is already having a dramatic impact on the way the professional beauty industry does business. And if you haven’t hopped on the geek chic bandwagon yet, here’s three reasons why it’s time to…

1. Salon software is homeless

Trying to locate files, be it on the computer or in your reception desk drawers, is one of the most time consuming and frustrating things you can do. But thanks to the latest salon software technology, you needn’t do that any more. Programs like Timely store all your files in the cloud, which means they are accessible to you anywhere and at any time, regardless or how chaotic your office filing drawers are or if your salon computer just crashed. Because cloud based software has no fixed location, you can access your booking calendar and client files from your iPad or smart phone in a snap.

2. Salon software listens

New technology has enabled salon software programs to intuitively understand your business even better than your best staff member can. That means you can pull up data on exactly how well your latest marketing campaign has done or what products your clients want to see more of in your salon at any time.

3. Salon software goes to your clients

Imagine if your clients could have their booking and payment sorted before reaching your salon without ever having to pick up the phone. Sounds too good to be true, but with most smart salon booking software, it’s absolutely possible. There are now programs that can actually reach out to your clients on Facebook, allowing them to get their booking and payment finalised without ever leaving their social media feed, so life is easier for everyone involved.
