Introducing a major update to Salon Clients Journal™, a client management tool for the independent styling professional, to bring the advanced application of iOS™ technology right to their chair.
Chicago, IL, May 22, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) - Available in the Apple App Store, Salon Clients Journal is a tool to assist independent styling professionals in building their business. It gives them technology to stay in contact with their clients, optimize their chair time, receive realtime feedback from their clients, share with their peers, and build their client relationships beyond just a great haircut or convenient appointment time.
Salon Clients Journal is so social. It is full of features to enhance the creativity and productivity of the independent styling professional, setting them apart. It removes much of the administrative burden, adding flexible appointment scheduling tools with the innovative “visual calendar”. Salon Clients Journal includes client “before and after” photography that provides the forum for “instant” feedback from the client, while still in the chair.
Further social features include the ability to share photos with clients via email and after obtaining a photo release, share with the Salon Clients Journal Professional community. Users may view recent posts from other stylists to share ideas, rate their favorites and view fresh style feeds in The Style Center (including the newest cut and color ideas) and all of these inputs may be shared with the client to help guide and inform their styling choices. This allows the styling professional to stay current, bringing the newest ideas to their clients and concentrating on what they do best: helping their client look and feel beautiful.
Salon Clients Journal gives independent stylists a technological edge with state of the art appointment and communication management, journalling previous cuts, color and styling, and allows the stylist to build a stronger relationship with their clients based on past successes.
With the introduction in this release of the Visual Calendar, scheduling an appointment for a client is reduced two touches, first on the Visual Calendar where the stylist can see a visual representation of their appointment overlap and then on the Done button on the confirmation screen. The stylist merely touches the time slot they wish to schedule and the default values for appointment duration, alarm creation with default advance time already set in the Settings tab from within the app. If any changes are desired, it's easy to edit the appointment, the editor comes up automatically. The new Visual Calendar is fully customizable in regards to default time slot to schedule (15, 20, 30, etc. minutes to schedule, and the normal working hours of the stylist. Further, a customizable appointment listing screen has been added to allow the display of as much historical appointment data the stylists wishes. The new Visual Calendar is the most advanced scheduling tool available in any app for any platform.
Integrated App Settings (preferences) Controller has been incorporated into this release allowing the rapid adjustment of application settings right from within the app, saving the user time and providing a much more advanced user-interface that Apple's Settings App because we provide help text for every preference to ensure complete understanding of each setting effect on App behavior.
