Did your printer run out of paper? Did you forget to print a report? Or did you just want another copy of a report later but not want to wait for the program to create the report again? Our new Stored Reports feature does all that and more! Owners can access the Stored Reports button under the Reports section. It’s a new button on the left where we list the different types of reports (Receptionist Reports, Manager Reports, etc). Once …

As I wrote back in June, the Spa/Salon Manager program makes it easy to sell gift certificates to your customers without dealing with the per-transaction fees that banks and credit card processors charge to load and redeem their gift cards. We have extended that same ability to your website allowing your customers to print beautiful gift certificates directly from the web. Best of all your employees don’t have to handle the checkout process or the shipping! To make all of …

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 …

Our owner Kent’s wait for his new electric car got me thinking about ways you can use features in our program to cut your paper use, help the environment, and at the same time make it easier to use the program. We have a lot of features that help reduce paper usage – I’d like to cover some of them here. We have many salons that print a Close Day Summary every day. You can print these reports at any …

Ever since we rolled out our new website back in May we’ve been looking to put more and more information about our program and our company where our customers can see it.  We want you to get to know us as well as how the program operates. That entire time we’ve worked hard on something behind the scenes and I’m very happy to announce that we’re now ready to unveil our company site on Facebook! When we first discussed creating …

The Send Email feature of our program has always allowed you to send links and pictures. With a bit of work outside the program first you could even send full web pages. What the program lacked though was a way to automatically include certain links and pictures on every email that you send out. That’s why we’ve added our newest feature to email – the Email Footer. The Email Footer page, which is available under Maintenance -> Internet Marketing, makes …

Filling out paperwork takes up a lot of time for most businesses. There are tax forms, employee reviews, accounting information, as well as information required by various partners and distributors. We’re always looking for ways we can save our customers time in that area. That’s why we’re very excited to unveil the Aveda Master Report. We created the Aveda Master Report to make filling out this important information for Aveda much easier. In the past getting the information on this …

Our Cloud software has been very popular but many of our existing customers that recently converted to Cloud brought up an important question – How do we switch windows like we could with the installed version? Unfortunately the Cloud version of our program removed the Windows taskbar that allowed users to switch between open windows. We made changes to make it easier to use the program without that option but the frequency of that question lately made it clear we …

We’ve added several new features to The Spa/Salon Manager lately that need email support. When I went back in to look at our records though we had many salons that hadn’t taken advantage of everything our software offers to people with email accounts. This seems like a good time to explain how our email service works, how to tell if you have email set up through us, and list many of the great features that our email service can open …

I just finished my first cut at a standing desk and the process of working on putting together a comfortable and easy-to-use workstation reminded me of an important point we don’t spend enough time talking about – from the beginning we designed the Spa/Salon Manager program to work well with touch screen monitors. Now any program will ‘work’ with a touch screen monitor. A touch screen simply allows you to replace the motions and left-click actions of a mouse by …
