There's more to hair salon software than simply setting appointments. It does that, of course, with a click of the mouse, allowing you to book a service in about ten seconds. But did you know that hair salon software can also automate your inventory and sales, mailing lists, employee records, and payroll?

Hair salon software typically maintains a client database, including formulas preferred and merchandise purchased. If used as a complete point of sale application, it can also keep an updated inventory of products and manage ordering and receiving. It can also be used in promotions. If, for instance, you wanted to advertise a sale of a certain product, your software could list all patrons who have used that product in the past, then send them an e-mail.

Hair Salon Software Calculates Complicated Payrolls

Paying employees in a salon can be a complicated business. Often you have a combination of various types of employees. Different employees might be paid by an hourly wage, salary, commission or some combination of those. Let software take care of your payroll automatically, and think of all the time you'll save when you don't have to sit down every month with an overflowing box of receipts, a calculator, and a bottle of aspirin.

Hair salon software gathers a lot of information for you, then presents it in easy-to-use reports. These reports can be in a summary format or as detailed as you'd like. And even if you aren't experienced at using the computer, most systems are intuitively designed, so you can be up and running in no time at all.
