Yes mostly. For PC we would recommend asking a member of the team to send over our recommended PC spec to make sure that the PC you have is good enough to run salon tracker on. For all other hardware, such as POS, Fingerprint Readers and Signature pads, we would recommend sourcing them from us as we cannot guarantee that other ones will work.

With our Standard and Professional packages your data is all stored locally to your PC. What we recommend is to have a memory stick or an external hard drive plugged into the PC that can be used to store another backup file. When closing down Salon Tracker there are 2 tick boxes, one to back up to the local PC and one to back up to a removal drive. Make sure both of these are ticked and go green, this means that both backups have been successful.

Yes, we can convert data from most other software companies! For the most part we have done conversions from most other software companies, so it’s just a case of us accessing the data and then converting it over to Salon Tracker on our side.
