There’s so much data that goes into running a successful salon—including product costs, employee commissions, online reviews, and other KPIs. Keeping track of everything has been made much simpler by the technology and software available today…remember when we had to write everything down by hand?!
However, just because the software is there doesn’t mean it’s always easy to use. That’s where these trusted salon technology companies come in. A good software platform is one that automates the mundane parts of collecting and reporting data on your business while being easy to adopt. See what these leaders in the industry have to say about how automated salon management tools can help you be a more effective and efficient business owner.
“The increased use of online reputation management and review tools are already helping salon owners manage their companies, and the developing automation of these features will bring even more convenience. Envision offers automated marketing triggers based on positive interactions in the salon and requests reviews from those guests. This makes it easier and more convenient to manage the company’s online presence, respond to reviews, and build their brand with more positive reviews.” -- Micki DeJean, Director of Marketing, Envision Salon Software
“Meevo's Advanced Reporting and Dashboards are a must-have as salons today are struggling to access data within their software systems. Having the ability to filter, sort, and customize reports based on what matters most is crucial. These capabilities help keep management teams aligned on business goals and important KPI’s. They also empower salon owners and managers to better educate their team on valuable data that could shed light on growth opportunities.” -- Andrew Clarke, VP of Product Development, Meevo
“With the rising costs of back bar product, it's critical that salons stay on top of their costs of goods and services. By being able to automate and calculate product costs in real-time, salon owners and stylists have data at their fingertips to ensure accurate pricing, inform back bar ordering for what you actually need, and most importantly more profit for your business. SalonScale provides clarity and transparency so that together we can build an ecosystem of profitable salons around the globe.” -- Alicia Soulier, Founder and CEO, SalonScale
“The insight technology gives into how a business is functioning on every level is incredibly powerful, but it must be user-friendly. You can’t assume everyone is comfortable using tech. I think tech will become increasingly multi-layered, like Vish, to provide immediate, clear benefits to the service provider as much as to management or a business owner." -- Joshua Howard, CEO, Vish
