I really want to move over to salonlite - from paper appointment book plus using outlooks calendar. I've registered I just haven't had time to go through and set it all up. I need to get on and do it because hard copies of cards drive me insane. I then enter all the details into Microsoft access to build my database of email address' I'd like it all in one place. Can salonlite be accused from any computer? Ie I can check it at himself on my laptop/ipad whilst the girls at the salon can still use it?I'm fairly certain in a race between you looking up a client card in your filing system and me typing it into a software system, I'd win
Physical cards are a pain, in my opinion. They get scribbled on, stuff gets scribbled out or it's illegible ("how many courses has Mrs Smith got again? 2.. no, wait.. I think that's a 3"), especially if your handwriting is anything like mine. Then they got lost, or something gets spilt on them rendering them unreadable - I don't know, I think I'd stick to a computer system!
If you're looking to replace your current system - for free, no less - you can always take a look at Salonlite - The worlds first free online salon and spa management software. We're getting a lot of very positive feedback about it, and it's not like you'd lose anything by trying it out
Yep, pretty much anywhere where you've got an internet connection.Can salonlite be accused from any computer? Ie I can check it at himself on my laptop/ipad whilst the girls at the salon can still use it?
I spent the other morning setting it up. It's not as bad as I imagined. I haven't transferred all the clients tho, I'll do that as they book. It's really easy to use via the ipad (safari not an app).I need to sort my system out too, up until jan this year I just used paper diary and record cards, but hunting through record cards drove me nuts (way too many) so bought an i pad and started using my chair app for appointments and client records, but I cant back it up and view the info from another computer so have still been using paper diary too ...yesterday I had my first slip up a client turned up who wasn't in the diary but was on i pad, luckily I had a gap and it was ok, I felt very unprofessional . So have stopped using i pad , but now have part info on record cards part on i pad....
What do people do who just use a computer system, do you do consultation sheet on paper and get clients signature for medication etc and the keep notes on computer, or do you do consultation on computer ? What about signature ?
I did sign up to salon lite a month ago but can't face setting it all up, how is anyone finding it ?
I really need to sort this out !
