Does anyone have intercom systems in their tanning rooms and if so do you find this an advantage for You or your customer?

We have phones in each room. The customers can call the front desk by dialing 1-1. We find it to be very helpful for when they want us to adjust the volume of the music, or if a bed didn't start, etc. It prevents a customer from having to get dressed to come talk to us or worse yet, come out undressed. And by not having to get dressed and then go back and undress again, it keeps sessions on schedule and alows for more customers.

I love that idea Jerry, awesome!!

I think a lot of people hate that, when they have a problem and have to get dressed again and come on out to tell us.

Exactly how did you have the phone lines hooked up. Would you be charged like an individual line in every room? If you could explain this to me I would appreciate it because I would like to use this in my salon!

Ok folks, this is how it works...

1. The phones and phone lines in the rooms are "in house" phones. No one can dial outside the salon. All calls from rooms go to the front desk. This system is much the same as how hotel phones work when you need the concierge, front desk, room service, etc.

2. The phones themselves are inexpensive princess phones which hang on the wall by each tanning unit.

3. All phone lines from rooms go through a switching system which directs the calls to the front desk. We can also call each room if needed.

Since there are no outside lines involved, there is no additional cost from the phone company.

I hope this helps!

BTW I answered for Jerry because he is crunching his usual numbers

Wouldn't the phone company have to come and put phone jacks in every room and where would you find a switching system? Is this the name you would ask for? Is it expensive? I am really interested as I hope to put this into my salon asap!

Yes. Most love that idea until they find out how much 12,15,20,30 intercom stations and master unit costs... then they figure if the client has a problem, then they can come up and ask...

Anyone found any cheap/inexpensive intercom systems for 25 rooms and above?

Brandi, yes it is a bit expensive about $3500 for the entire system, but it is worth it for our customer's convenience.
