How Beauty Salon Services Got New Hype With App Developmentby Rob Stephen getaprogrammer
This article throws light on the evolution of apps or specifically on-demand apps in the beauty and salon services.
To solve the problem of never-ending wait of customers at the salon or parlors, the owners are now resorting to mobile app development in Sydney and other parts of the country. The app developers in Australia have worked out on the latest mobile app trends and technologies to bring functional, on-demand app for beauty salon services. With that customers can any time book an appointment in the salon prior to their visit or can call a hairdresser or stylist to come to their place. Built for the benefits of both the services providers and the customers, one thing is clear that the trend of apps is going to stay in the beauty and salon industry.
Before you guess much, here are discussed the salient features of such apps which proffer immeasurable benefits to both the parties.
#1 One-stop solution to show all services
The app lets the services provider show all of their services all at one place. While in one way, this seems as displaying their services portfolio, it is an easy way for the willing customers to view what are the services available, along with their charges and then avail one.
#2 Helps owners to manage availability
With the help of an app, the salon services provider can manage the time of their availability easily. The owner can easily manage their services according to the employees’ time availability. When none of the employees are available, the app can also show the next time they will be available for booking.
#3 Provides out-of-the-box offers
Unlike in the salon or parlor, the owner can grab more customers online via an app by providing them attractive offers, combo services. While that will not make their place crowded instantly because they can provide the offers in a personalised manner to few customers at different points of time.
#4 Flexible booking options
Not only just online booking, but the app will provide customers with more flexible booking facilities. They can cancel a booking in case of any urgency, or can reschedule the booking with a few clicks.
#5 Earning of loyalty points
The app will help the customers to earn and redeem bonus points and then use them the next services they avail the services. Some can even earn referral points by persuading anyone in their social circle to use the app’s services and redeem them later. Such rewards points serve as an appreciation of loyalty of the customers which will eventually help the owner to earn some reputation in the market.
Developing such an on-demand app with multi-faceted features is not a rocket science and especially with the help of one of the reputed mobile app development companies in Sydney. However, if you are one of the beauty and salon services provider and willing to make one such don’t forget about the challenges that you might face while developing it. Few challenges are inclusion of in-app payments, multiple currencies rates, offline and online facilities.
