hey it’s Dustin in this video I’m going to tell you about what i think is the best salon management software out there for your salon. You need to be using it to stick with me. So if you’ve watched any of my other videos or you’ve been to my website you know that i am a huge advocate for leveraging a salon management system to grow your salon business. As salon professionals we spend so much time working in our salon we don’t have much time to work on our salon and that’s why it’s important to have automated software working for you behind the scenes. From the time we opened up our salon we’ve been using Rosy salon software which is a cloud-based Salon Management System if you like to check it out i’ll put a link right down there in the description for you. There are several reasons we love Rosy Salon Software and the first and probably most important thing for me is online clients scheduling. Straight from our salon website using Rosy salon software they can click a link and they can schedule themselves an appointment any time of day or night 365 days a year. With this online scheduling we’ve been able to grow our clientele really quickly because it gives them the opportunity to schedule any type of day that is convenient for them. There have been times when you’re first starting out we would go to bed with holes in our schedule and we wake up the next morning because somebody had scheduled themselves an appointment using their computer in their house and you just can’t do that if the only way you can schedule an appointment is by phone. The next thing that we really love is email and text confirmations. So when somebody schedules an appointment we have it scheduled within the software to send them an email two days before their appointment they can click a link within that email and it will change the color on our schedules to notify us that they have confirmed their appointment. Clients also receive a text message one day before their appointment if they haven’t confirmed through email with a link and if they click that link it will also confirm the appointment. And then two hours before their appointments will also get another text message reminder this might seem like overkill but trust me it really cuts down on no-shows. We literally don’t even have a receptionist because the software does so much for us. People can schedule their appointments online they can confirm the appointment online so there’s really little work to do because the software is working the background constantly and so every now and again we’ll make confirmation call or people will call in to schedule their appointments but it really cuts down on the work that we need to do as a receptionist. The next thing we love is the point of sale feature when somebody’s done with their appointments they come over to our desk and they can pay with credit card cash or check and all the credit card processing this process within the software so makes it incredibly easy. We also keep track of client history notes or color formulas right there within the software and it’s really cool because it is cloud-based which means you don’t have to worry about your computer crafting and losing all of those notes and also it’s good on any device you can use it on a mac or a pc or even your cell phone. The software processes all the reports you’ll ever need at the end of the day we always see how we did we can process the daily sales report you can also check how the different stylists within your salon are doing on retail sales. Any type of report you think you’ll ever need you can just click couple buttons and that will process right there on your computer and Rosy will give you an idea of how your business is doing. One of the features that we use all the time within the software is a wait list when somebody calls in and wants to schedule an appointment but you don’t have anything available for them you can put them on a waitlist and when somebody cancels, that will pop up and remind you that person wants to be scheduled you can give him a call and stick them right in there. There are also some really neat marketing capabilities within the software if you see my other training on the salon profit circle there is when they schedule an appointment and then we have them fill out a survey and then we have them share our salon on social media and it just revolved like that we get a new client in the salon profit circle and this whole system is automated within the Rosy software. So if you’re looking for a salon management system it’s really easy to use and has some really comprehensive features that are going to take weight off of your shoulders when it comes to managing your salon, then I highly recommend Rosy Salon Software. Pricing starts at just 29 dollars a month so it’s really cheap I’ve seen other scheduling software out there there’s a lot more expensive and doesn’t do half of what Rosy does. And so that’s why we love it.
