About SalonTarget


SalonTarget is a cloud-based salon management platform suitable for businesses of all sizes. It offers booking, client management, a product catalog, client reminders and more.

SalonTarget’s Queue screen lets users view clients who are due to check in, already arrived, currently in service and recently checked out. Users can also see whether a client has booked online, if they have a past due balance or products in their online shopping cart. Clients can book appointments online, and users can book multiple appointments, enable overbooking and drag and drop appointments to reschedule.

Users can send emails, text messages and voicemails to confirm client appointments, as well as text message reminders. The online product dashboard contains product information and client purchase history. Users can tag related products that are suggested to clients at checkout, as well as manage inventory.

Support is offered through an online FAQ. Pricing is per store.

Anthony and the Salon Target Team have been extremely attentive and made our transition very smooth.

We have received numerous benefits from this software. Our front desk has become much more efficient for many reasons. 1. They do not have to physically make reminder calls any more. 2. They do not have to book as many appointments over the phone. 3. There are not as many employees at the front desk because they can check their phones to see if there is a walk-in waiting or if their next appointment has arrived. 4. The employees can check their sales on their phone at the end of the night instead of slowing down the cash out process. Our customers are happier with our added conveniences: 1. They love the text reminders 2. They love the ability to book online 3. They love the speedier checking in and out process due to the added conveniences listed above. Letting our clients know about any product deals or promotions we have: 1. I don't have to have a marketing company and costly e-mail program to send out promotions. 2. Rewarding our clients for sending us referrals and being able to track easily. Simplified book keeping and payroll process; 1. Our book keeper can login in when it is convenient for her to do her work. 2. Our front desk does not have to print and fax daily, weekly, and payroll reports. Being able to login from anywhere: 1. As an owner I can login to both of my businesses at any time to check what is going on. 2. My employees can login at any time to check their schedule and sales. 3. Being able to limit what each employee has access to. There are so many benefits we have received from switching to Salon Target it is so hard to name them all. The above is a comprehensive list as we are still learning how to maximize the software's full potential.

Pros

The software has so many features it is hard to name just one. We are an upscale barbershop with two locations and salon target has helped us manage our walk-in and appointment business so much more efficiently. I would have to say because of the volume of people coming into the business at one time (men's haircuts are much quicker) the automated confirmations and online bookings have made our front desk so much more efficient. Our checking in and out wait times are much shorter and the front desk staff has the time to greet the clients as soon as they walk in the door instead of being on the phone and making them wait. Our clients love the ability to book online as well as the text reminders. We have received many comments from our busy clientele that they do not have time to use the phone. In some cases we have had customers setting reminders for themselves to call when we open up first thing Monday morning to get an appointment time that is convenient for them before they fill up for the week. Our staff loves the ability to check their phone to view their appointment book, walk-in list, and sales. This cuts down on the amount of people congregating at the front desk. It also saves the front desk person from having to leave the desk to let the barbers to let them know they are needed. Lastly, our book keeping department loves the ability to login in to view all of the reports. This saves the front desk from having to print and fax nightly, weekly, and payroll reports.

Cons

I can't say there is something I don't like about the software. The only challenge is that it does so much to help build the business and retain customers that I need to make sure that myself and front desk teams are doing everything to take full advantage of all of the benefits. Again, this is on my end and my responsibility to make sure we are doing everything in our power to maximize the software's capability. This is in no way a short coming or least favorite part of the software. As a business owner/operator my major challenge is making sure I am spending the necessary time working on my business along with working in it on a daily basis.

Easy to use, versatile and up to date with modern technology

Pros

Easy to use and navigate through all of the options. As a salon manager the software provides me the ability to review all of our clients past history, easy to use profile builders that make up selling a mindless task and communication with our front desk is simple and fast with the touch screens at our stations! The station screens provide my clients with a customized experience that makes it easier for me to keep up with their ever changing hair styles and products. From a business point of view it's easy for me to see all reports such as inventory, client history, closing out the draw and opening the salon for the day. The reports are self explanatory and great for us to stay on top of progress retention and what we could work on! Not to mention the ability to send out automatic reminders to clients and email marketing!

After set up I've had a seamless professional experience that helps me run my business efficiently.

I get professional emails and reminders for my clients. It helps me manage my clients so I'm not spending a lot of time on the phone. The two hour text alert reminder makes it so I have zero no shows. The check out process is seamless and reliable, it takes minutes with minimal effort. I very rarely have any issues with this software.

Pros

I love the online booking and automatic emails. My clients love to be reminded to book their appointment after four weeks when they don't have an appointment on the books.

Cons

If I were to talk about a slight inconvenience it would be google updates in relation to my printer. I have to use explorer when this happens.

Easy to use and from any device

Quick and easy salon managing

Pros

I like that the software is easy to use and understand. Obviously there were a few bumps trying to figure that system out in the beginning, but the Salon Target staff was incredibly helpful when it came to helping me figure things out. I also love that the system sends out the reminders for me and the clients love the reminders as well!

Cons

The one thing that I like least is that it only works best on chrome! I have all mac products so to check the schedule I have to have the chrome app on my phone.

Efficient, functional, affordable, easy to access, professional

Enables me to make sure that we are meeting our goals and that we are productive.

Pros

It's pretty easy to use it's a lot like the software I used to have so it wasn't too much of learning something new and the creators of the software are in the industry themselves

Cons

The way I was taught to take a pay down for deposit for first time clients doesn't comply with us receiving first-time client review.

Salon Target makes scheduling appointments easier than ever!

Pros

I like that this system is very user friendly and easy to navigate, it makes communication with clients and appointment-making easier than ever!
