Salon & Spa Point of Sale: Pricing, Features, Testimonials and How to Implement

A Point of Sale (POS) System is the point at which a transaction occurs, where a customer pays for a service or good at a store. Point of sale systems used to merely refer to the cash register at a store, meaning that most of the work had to be done manually.

However, we now have what are referred to as mobile point of sale systems. Varying from free to paid pos software, these are entirely digital and significantly lower the amount of manual work that was once associated with the process. POS systems for salons therefore go a long way in terms of benefiting salons, due to the numerous advantages that they entail.

It is crucial that you do not lose touch with your existing clients when dealing with the process of an expanding client base. One way in which a positive relationship with both new and old clients can be maintained is through the implementation of a loyalty program. By implementing an effective loyalty plan, your salon will be able to successfully satisfy its clients whilst also gathering a larger clientele. This is due to the fact that rewarding your clients contributes to the assurance that they will revisit your salon. Statistics indicate that 90% of consumers are more likely to choose a retailer with a premium loyalty program as opposed to another retailer offering a lower price.

Real-Time Analytics

Real-Time Analytics

Mobile POS systems can capture data in real-time. This means that your salon will be able to respond to data faster, as you will be able to act on the data as soon as you receive it. It is also important to note that the data that you receive in real-time is more accurate in comparison to data that is more than four weeks old. This is mainly due to factors such as a change in market conditions and shift in category trends, which can negatively affect the reliability of older data.

Employee management

This is also advantageous because it ensures that the skills of all of your employees are well utilised. Statistics highlight that businesses with highly engaged workforces experience an increase in profitability by 21%.
