Phorest Salon Software and Luxury Brand Partners (LBP), parent company to Oribe Hair Care, R+Co, V76 by Vaughn, Smith & Cult and IGK, have announced a strategic partnership. Phorest, a system designed to assist with day-to-day business, grow service and keep customers happy, is now LBP’s exclusive software partner.
Servicing more than 3,600 customers in Europe, Phorest has helped grow in-salon retail by 31 percent through advanced built-in components of software technology. Through combined efforts, the alliance will help salons look to the future as the salon business transitions over the next three to five years.
“We are so excited to help introduce Phorest to U.S. salons,” Tev Finger, CEO of Luxury Brand Partners says. “Phorest helps salons grow with their ingenious marketing tools, save by eliminating pricy add-ons with other softwares and move forward with the most technologically advanced payment platforms. It’s no wonder they are a top-seller in Europe.”
Phorest will be holding its annual tech conference, Phorest Salon Owners Summit, in Dublin on Monday, January 8. The sold out event will feature guest speakers from both the salon and tech worlds who will be speaking about current and future industry growth. There are 1,500 salon owners and stylists from around the world expected to attend.
“Phorest is the number one software for premium salons, which is why we are so excited to partner with Luxury Brand Partners,” Ronan Perceval, CEO of Phorest Salon Software, says. “Just like LBP, Phorest Salon Software is incredibly passionate about the beauty industry, in particular about helping salon owners and entrepreneurs grow fantastic businesses. We have the best tools to help salons get their clients in more often, and we can't wait to share them with salon owners in the U.S.”
