IBCS recently completed the upgrade of the Spa-Salon Manager email server and web sites. Utilizing the latest hardware, we replaced the standard hard drives with solid state hard drives (no moving parts). We sped up the email blasts and web pages and dramatically increased the server’s reliability. Normally, every year Black Friday causes our email server to slow to a crawl, but I’d like to report we were able to send out 225,000+ emails without a single issue or slowdown ...

However, since all the changes are so tightly tied together I’ll cover them in sections here. The first section will cover changes made to Employee Paging within our base software. The second section ...

I'd like to take some time today to explain a great feature we've had for some time but relatively few of our customers use - the Paging feature. Salons and Spas can use the Paging feature to keep their Employees informed about a variety of events in the salon without the noise of in-salon intercom systems, the cost of expensive pager systems, or having your receptionist running back and forth through the salon to talk to your service providers. If ...
