Hi everyone

I’ve been in beauty 23years & running my own salon successfully for the past 6 years as a private clinic. The opportunity has come to expand and relocate. I’m excited to expand have a ‘shop presence’ and at the moment will still be the only therapist. But have staff in shop. Up until now I have been a bit old fashioned with paper diary and using iZettle On an iPad for payments. However I need to now get salon software in and would like to go paperless on the record cards etc for when I open end September.

Which salon software do you use and recommend and are they expensive?

thanks

There are heaps around and to be honest most are pretty good, you should try a few and see which one you prefer. A couple of well known ones, Timely, You'reOnTime, Ovatu.

Thank you! I think timely is looking good atm will check the other two as I’ve not heard of them. I initially called phorrest but omg it’s sooo expensive! Especially in these uncertain times.

You can try MioSalon Software. Has all major features in addition to COVID-19 Salon Screening Survey Forms. It is fully integrated with appointments, and sends an automatic alert to manager for any risk involved in appointment.

Thanks for your feedback! I’ve had a two week trial with it and I really like it. May I ask which package you recommend? Do you use the consult app with it too? And also do you send out a covid consultation form to each client before they attend salon?

sorry for all the questions but I’ve always been a pen and paper kinda girl!!

Thats okay! Happy to help

So I have the top package innovate, if you want to use the consult part I think you need either of the top 2 packages but they're worth every penny!

I use the consult app too but they've just added that you can use consult with Timely itself to build forms etc which is great! And yes I use it to send a covid form before each appointment, you can do it manually or attach it to the appointment reminder

I do have a discount code if you decide to sign up - it gives you 3 months half price xx

:)

Thanks Annabel - I will be setting up in the next week or two and will use your code. I’m just waiting for the builders as everything is taking so much longer than expected in these times. I am worried about launching online booking and not being ready in time! X

I've used Ovatu, Timely and Treatwell, they're all good, reliable, booking systems. I would advise against Phorest as it's old fashioned and overpriced. I've also tried "clinicsoftware com" and they have the worst customer service imaginable and that's a huge red flag.

Hi I am currently looking at Treatwell and Versum. Has anyone used Versum? I haven't heard of Timely but will have a look at that too. Glad I found this thread. x

I have used salon iris for a long time, but we are currently looking at Versum, their marketing suite and on line shop option is what it tempting me.
Their weekly emails to me seem really switched on as well.
Has anyone used Versum yet?
