Technology in the Salon Industry: Stephanie Jennings, MINDBODY

“For salon business owners and stylists, mobile management will transform the way the salon is run, and the ways in which stylist-client interactions transpire. Mobile business management apps, like MINDBODY Express, remove the need for a front desk completely. Owners and staff can manage on-the-go, empowering them with flexibility. They can check clients in, swipe credit cards, process payments and run reports, all from their phone, in what’s called the customer ‘comfort zone’- all while the client is still in the chair.”

--Stephanie Jennings, senior vice president of sales, MINDBODY
