With the busiest time of year just around the corner for salons and spas, now’s the opportune moment to streamline jobs with useful salon reports. Our leading business management solution, Salon by Premier Software® features a range of reports that make light work of time-intensive tasks. These reports can be even be scheduled to land in your inbox at a date and time of your choosing. In preparation for the year ahead, we share five Salon reports that can help make your business more efficient.
Manage your time in the salon with the Stylist Overview report
Want to look at your salon’s revenue targets, actual takings, and items sold for both services and retail, all at a glance? The Stylist Overview report is incredible for providing these details for each of your staff members, all in one place. Despite its name, this is available for both hair and beauty businesses, saving you time looking at multiple reports for staff performance. Simply set up targets for your team, then run the report for the last month to see where the team’s at, all using one easy table! This will highlight where they require assistance, helping to make them become more efficient moving forward.
Staff Hours Analysis helps manage your time effectively
If only there was a report that measured the amount of time your team worked throughout the day, helping evaluate their efficiency. Oh wait, there is – Staff Hours Analysis! This report breaks down the amount of time each member of your team was with a client, as well as their time worked and the total amount of white space in their diary. If your team members consistently have a lot of white space, then perhaps it’s time to tweak their rota for the short term, or train them in other popular treatments come the New Year?
Run Salon’s Stock Used report for item usage
When it comes to a stock order and delivery, it helps to know what items have been used and what needs ordering. Salon’s Stock Used report measures the amount of product used over a set period, giving you a clear idea of what needs re-ordering. This saves time otherwise spent on manual stocktakes and calculating how much a re-order will cost. Just make sure the team are logging when they use stock, to ensure your report is accurate.
Time-saving salon reports for confirmations and reminders
To avoid wasted time from last-minute cancellations or no-shows, you should prompt clients with appointment confirmations and reminders. Rather than checking all upcoming bookings and sending reminders manually, a report can be scheduled to do this for you automatically. Once you schedule automated reports for confirmations and reminders in Salon, clients with bookings within a set time frame will receive an email or SMS prompt. Alongside Salon’s other ways to automate your salon tasks and save time, this report helps contribute to maximising staff resources.
Save time with the Bills Analysis and Payment Methods report
Part of your end of day procedure is to total up the amount in your till. Salon can save plenty of time from manual counting using its Bill Analysis with Payment Methods report. After selecting your specific tills and date range, the report will tally up the amount paid by each client and state their payment method. You can then run your end of day process and enter the report values for each method of payment, such as cash, card or voucher.
Salon by Premier Software® has plenty of other functions to help manage your time effectively, including reports for growth in your salon or spa. These range from automated marketing all the way through to online booking and management. To find out more about these and how else Salon can help you, book a free presentation below.
