Frequently asked questions about salon software

  • What is salon software?
    Beauty salon software can automatically handle a wide range of tasks for your beauty business that in the past required a lot of manual data entry and time. Maybe most importantly, you can use the salon appointment scheduler to keep your schedule online, so it’s easy for clients to view, book, and buy on any device, from anywhere. Also, you can sell and track services and products, and even keep track of clients and prospects with details into their past purchases and services. Plus, you can run and view detailed reports to help you improve your services and grow your business. Think of it as hiring a full-time assistant to take care of day-to-day tasks and free you up to focus on more important things.
  • What are the benefits of salon booking software and online booking?
    If you’re coming from pen and paper to take and track appointments and run your business, you’re in for a world of change when you start using salon software. Essentially, running software to manage your schedule, staff, and inventory simplifies your life—it helps offload some of the work behind the nuts and bolts of your business so you can focus on your clients and staff. Spend less time calling customers to confirm appointments and more time finding new ways to market. Spend less time figuring out payroll, commissions, and tips, and more time training staff on how to upsell. Spend less time tracking inventory manually and more time on your customer experience.
  • Will salon software lead to more sales?
    If you’re using it to do more than just manage your schedule, then yes. If you really want to grow your business, you need professional, automated tools to help you track and improve sales and market your services, whether you’re a hair salon, nail salon, or full-service salon. With software, you can publish your availability online on your website, on social media, and even on your mobile app to create more front doors to your business. You can also create and publish promos or introductory offers and even track which staff are great at upselling, selling products, and bringing in new clients—and incentivize them accordingly. Software allows you to track slow and busy times and staff appropriately. And, it lets you see which clients are regulars, which ones need a nudge or reminder to come back, and which ones can be won back. Finally, with an integrated POS (point-of-sale) system such as Clover, you get the ability to make sales at the front desk, on mobile, or online.
  • Will I need support to run salon software at my business?
    We try to make the software as easy to use as possible, but of course with any new tool, you’ll have questions. We have support sites that answer common questions, plus support via phone, email, and chat to get the answer you need, when you need it. You’ll find that learning to use the software on your desktop, at your front desk, and from your phone and tablet will get easier over time until you realize how essential it is to run your business and free up your time.
  • What salon hardware will I need to supplement my software solution?
    That depends on your needs, but we highly recommend a good point-of-sale system as your top priority. You’ll probably want a monitor for your front desk, but you should also consider iPads to alleviate the front desk congestion. Mobile swipers will be key for taking payment on your phones and iPads. A barcode scanner will make things easier at the front desk for checking out products, and a mobile barcode scanner will help you manage inventory.
