Lets Wake This Forum Up!

If you could have your software vendor add any 3 features into your software what would then be in order of importance?

What you say here just may happen!

Sales reminders.

Ask them if they need another bottle of AG Hot since it has been 12 sessions since their last purchase.

Re: Lets Wake This Forum Up!

Glad you asked

A power management feature.What I mean is if a salon is paying electrical demand charges.

For those who dont understand what that means is it works like this.

Instead of paying xx per kilowatt hr ,you pay delivery charges based on the peak "demand" or kva.

Example

magic 636 36 kva

200 watt verticle 11 kva

Ect


So if your beds all running at once,plus ac,ect totaled up to 100 kva

The electricity company the charges you about 15 $ per kva as a one time flat rate delivery charge of 1500 $

Even if you closed your salon the next 29 days


So in the off season you can reduce electrical cost by not running all the beds at once

But ,all it takes is one mistake and it can cost you hundreds of dollars


This is for salons running big beds,if you have 5 100 watters,this is of no use

So back to the software

Set up something in the programming so you can cap the kva in use

This could be done by setting a kva value on each bed

Then you set the kva limit


Say 60

So now if 56 kva is already running and you try to program the magic,it says 56 kva in use please wait 3 minutes for beds 5 and 6 to turn off

At that point,it allows the magic to come on.


If you are owner operated and are there all the time you can do this with your brain


But who is there all the time?


Or you have multiple locations

This could save a few grand in the off season

Then when the season hits you re adjust your settings to allow all beds to run.

Do you think you run the risk of annoying clients that have to wait when they see beds open?

Hi Tony, I hope things are well.

I would love to have a module that searches for and updates EFT members credit card information. To be able to not lose a paying client when their card gets lost or stolen or just changed by the bank would be invaluable and worth the fee.

I think this already exists in some of the software out there?

This feature is called Account Updater and it will update expiration dates and follow lost or stolen cards to their new number. VERY important feature. You may already have it and not know it? What software do you use? We have had it since 2011 or 2012?

I am using SalonTouch and utilize WorldPay for merchant services. I don't think that feature is an option, but it definitely is important and up until this point, I have been without it.
