5 Ways Salons use Point of Sale Systems to 'Blow Out' Sales My stylist Veronica is amazing. Not only is she absolutely gorgeous on the inside and out, but she is always right on trend. She has mastered ombre, balayage, Brazilian blowouts, and beachy waves. Not only that, but she is also on the cutting edge of business. She doesn’t just rent a chair like many stylists do; she is part of a co-op that rents actual mini-rooms where each stylist has their own cubicle-like station complete with private sink and products for sale. In addition, you won’t find a receptionist on site. Each person runs their micro-salon (complete with payments and appointments) from their iPad. Crazy, huh? Now I know that this is the exception and not the norm to have this type of business model for a salon, but it’s amazing how far technology has come. So how can salon point of sale (POS) software help to grow your business? Simplify Appointment Scheduling– Throw out that old appointment book if you haven’t already! With new software you can schedule appointments, prevent double bookings, block out specific amounts of time based on the procedures being done, set-up client reminders, and have your customer’s contact information all at your fingertips. Cater to Your Best Customers– Business is based on relationships and the more information you have about your clients the better. Keep track of their hair color preference, products purchased, or chemical treatment sensitivities to optimize their future appointments and keep them coming back. Easy to Use– Whether you have a staff of two or twenty, the right salon POS software is simple enough for anyone to use. Training them on the new software takes only minutes, or if you run your own station like my friend Veronica, you can easily learn all of the basics with the help of readily available tech support. Product Management– Salons work hand-in-hand with the products they use and sell. Poor product management could mean running out of the proper hair color and taking a risk using another. Or imagine losing sales if a stylist introduces a product to a client only to have that space empty on the shelves. Not only are you losing money, but you are also losingcredibility. Business Reports-Mary Kay Ash,founder of the popular beauty corporation Mary Kay Cosmetics, once said, “central banks don't have divine wisdom. They try to do the best analysis they can and must be prepared to stand or fall by the quality of that analysis.”
So how do your businesses reports look and how quickly can you access them? Are your stylists each holding their own? What products or services are making the most money and which should you promote better? Is it time to add additional stations and stylists? Are you meeting your sales goals for the week or month? What you don’t know WILL hurt you.
