We are Exhibiting at PB London this weekend! Come and see us on stand Q32!
We can’t believe it, Professional Beauty London is only a few days away, it doesn’t seem like 2 minutes since we were last there and it’s been 6 months! And what a busy couple of months it has been, where we are so happy to finally announce that we have launched our online payments feature for tanning courses! So, we can now offer payments through stripe for all of our clients, whether you are wanting beauty/hair deposits, or wanting clients to purchase tanning bundles upfront, we’ve got you covered. We can also offer Klarna as a payment method, meaning that this allows your clients to buy now and pay later for their courses.
We also have lots of new features to demo to you, including our brand-new age verification tool, that only allows courses to be sold if there has been a proof of identity verified on the account. This is an extra security step to ensure that no one under the age of 18 can use a tanning bed. We also have a whole range of new reports to demonstrate, allowing you to get further insight in to your business and your KPI’s, plus these can be viewed on our Siteview app which is now editable! Appointments can now be made, updated and amended within the app, which is also native in the app store and on google play; in which all salon owners and employees can download and use on their phones & tablets. Making the ease of usage of the app even better now!
If you’re lucky enough, you should have received a VIP invite from us so you can receive early entry in to the show on Sunday at 9.30am – there should be a VIP link on the email where you can register for your early entry pass!
We will be exhibiting at stand Q32 across the 2-day weekend, offering live demonstrations to all visitors, and don’t forget if you visit our stand to make sure you sign up with us for your exclusive show offer, where we will be giving up to 30% off hardware and 30% off first 3 months software to all attendees!
What can you expect us to be working on next?
Even though we know we had a couple of years where events were closed, from the last couple of events we exhibited at, we have taken on board feedback and put together a plan to begin a road map for the next few features that we hope to have developed for you. Here’s what you can expect from us from our next few phases of development.
Predominantly for the beauty and aesthetics industry, Salon Tracker are hoping to integrate with ‘Tally’ to create forms that can be associated to a booking, complexed registration forms for spa and medical services and also potentially forms that can be associated with patch testing. These will also be sent via email to clients and stored electronically within the system. Salon Tracker will provide standard report templates through Tally and these will be editable for clients to amend to suit their services.
Salon TV is a new feature that allows Salons to broadcast their live bookable item times and waiting list times to a TV through streaming, using a google chrome cast. Clients will w be able to view when the next bookable item is available, therefore in the tanning industry they will be able to see the waiting list and approximate waiting time until their appointment, same in the barber industry and also this feature will work really well for anyone who offers a walk-in service.
An improvement on the Salon Signature pad, as this can allow clients to be registered via a tablet, without needing to be on the Enterprise package. A tablet is client facing at the reception desk, allowing clients to register a new account, or check in to say they have arrived at the salon for their appointment (great for businesses in the hair and barbering industry). Some of the company’s tanning clients already use Salon Assist as a form of security, by asking clients to ‘check-in’ when they arrive for their appointment, alongside a PIN pad, where the client will then check in and enter their secure pin to ensure this matches up for their appointment.
Using motion detection and hopefully electrical usage tracking, Salon Tracker can use detectors on their powered bookable items, or through smart intelligence on security cameras to determine whether someone is having a treatment at any one time. This type of technology is used to stop malicious behaviours, to detect if a bed has been used but not necessarily started through Salon Tracker, and also to match up payments at the time of hair/beauty appointments, as motion sensors and occupancy trackers should match the times of a transaction.
We're so excited for the show this weekend, it's great to be back exhibiting! If you haven't registered for your exhibitor pass yet, follow the link below:
