What is Salon Booking Software?

From front-end scheduling and booking, to back-end billing and information, salon software allows you to manage your salon with ease. Using an online platform, you can update salon appointment availability, allow customers to book with their stylist online, manage product inventory, bill and invoice in one place, and create staff schedules. An online platform gives you the freedom to manage your salon from anywhere.

Key Benefits of Salon Booking Software
