 - Gone are the days when people used their mobile phones to simply communicate with others. With advancements in telecommunications we can now check our stocks, listen to music, and read our emails all from our smart phone. So when will the day come when we can run our entire business from our cellular phone? For those of you in the salon industry that day is today.

Several applications are available in Apple’s iTunes store that makes it possible for salon professionals to manage their salon appointment software from their iPhone/iPad. Currently the honor of Apple’s most downloaded and highest rated beauty salon software application belongs to the Vagaro Pro, a product of Vagaro.com, which is an up and coming salon management software company based out of Pleasanton, California.

So, why would a hairstylist choose to abandon their paper scheduling books to keep all of their precious business information in their cell phone? Well, for starters their appointments and records are much safer when stored inside their mobile phone. Companies maintaining the salon management software backup all of their customer’s information in their servers, so if their phone is lost or stolen, the information is safe and can easily be accessed by the stylist. This is not the case for paper scheduling books, where in most cases if you lose your book, you’re out of luck.

The second advantage of running your salon appointment software from your smart phone is accessibility. Most people keep their cell phone with them at all times which is not always the case with salon stylist’s paper books. You never know when you will bump into a client, so it is always nice to have your beauty salon software handy, just in case.

These are just two of the numerous basic features that many of the beauty salon software companies offer their customers, but many of these companies offer other convenient options for their salons and spas as well. For example, the aforementioned Vagaro.com provides their customers with the ability to charge credit cards from their iPhone/iPad and they also give their salons a webpage where customers can book appointments online 24/7. Clients also receive confirmation emails and text messages to remind them of their appointments, a handy option that saves stylists time and energy. "The iPhone and iPad application was designed to make every stylist's job easier," explained Vagaro.com CEO Fred Helou. "They don't have to spend hours confirming appointments because customers receive automatic email and SMS text confirmations, it’s just a convenient and practical method for our salon owners and renters to manage their business.”

Reliable salon appointment software that is always by your side is an offer that can’t be beat, right? So by now you must be asking, what’s the catch? Well, some companies may try to charge you an arm and a leg for something this great, but trust me it is possible to find salon management software that can fit your budget; you just need to look for it. “The Vagaro Pro iPhone application is an amazing business tool,” said salon owner Dayre Eastwood. “It gives you everything you could possibly need to run a successful business and at twenty five dollars a month it’s a steal.”

So, with all of the benefits to running your business from your mobile phone it appears that the salon industry is setting the trend for the next wave of the future. Only time will tell who will be the next to follow, but with certainty we can say there will be others.
