WE ASKED INDUSTRY LEADERS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRY TRENDS THEY SEE ON THE HORIZON AND HOW THEY THINK THESE CHANGES AND INNOVATIONS WILL SHAPE OUR WAY OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE.
“Integration is the wave of the future. Online applications using Cloud technology enable software to be easily and cost effectively integrated. And integration provides more efficient communications with clients, staff, and suppliers. Salon management software will be integrated with social media, marketing, accounting, and suppliers’ systems. It will be commonplace for a salon client to schedule an appointment, buy a gift card, check rewards, and receive communications from their smart phone. The data will be in the cloud so you can access it from anywhere and manage your salon on any device, including a smart phone.”
--Jim Bower, founder, Rosy Salon Software
