Going on holiday? Salon owners can switch off thanks to Versum’s software
Like in most businesses, running a salon takes a whole lot of effort. Salon owners have to divide their work time between managing staff, business statistics, inventory levels and, of course, cleaning up.
It’s crucial that salon owners are in tip-top shape, but unfortunately, many don’t take holiday breaks as they fear leaving their business with staff. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.
More time for you
Thanks to reliable salon software, the holiday you’ve been dreaming of can finally be realised. Your stress-inducing tasks are set on autopilot and with a cloud-based solution, you can periodically check on your business while relaxing by the beach on a tropical island.
Electronic appointment book
This section of your salon software is dedicated to adding, managing and finalising client appointments. You and your staff can easily find client notes, allergies and requests in this section (if clients have provided this information), allowing the team to prepare accordingly.
Ensure clients come in for their appointments using automatic reminders, even while you’re soaking up the sun in Bali. Text or email reminders are launched a day before the client’s scheduled visit, reducing no-shows significantly.
Creating a list of daily tasks and assigning them to individual staff members is a great way to keep organised. Upon completion, your team can mark the assigned task as “finished” in the salon management system.
Most salons take bookings via the phone, email or on their Facebook business page or website – which are usually managed by the salon owner, who is kitesurfing in the Caribbean.
Instead, activate your online booking page, accessible to clients anytime, anywhere. Once they’ve booked a visit, their slot is reserved in your appointment book.
Before your next holiday, grab a reliable salon system. Versum will save you stress and time, as well as keeping you informed on how your business is doing, even while you’re collecting seashells by your beachside resort.
