CK Systemz’s Client Keeper Software incorporates a patented automatic e-mail system into its other data tracking duties. The software is designed specifically for hairstylists, massage therapists, cosmetologists, estheticians, beauticians, nail technicians, beauty students, and spa owners, and it can be downloaded quickly from the Internet.

CK Systemz does all of the standards, like appointment booking, client information, and statistical analysis, but its highlighting feature is the automated e-mailing. Once a client has been scheduled, an automatic e-mail is sent the day before her visit to remind her to come in. Clients can also switch their appointments on their own, making scheduling less of a hassle for the tech.

CK Systemz also has e-mail marketing options so techs can notify their clients of special discounts or limited time services. And all of these functions can be synced into a PDA so techs can organize their data and appointments while on the go.

The Mikal Corporation has been involved in the beauty industry since 1981, and its newest salon software program, Mikal Six, has been earning rave reviews. Some of the standout features include a Cyber Preceptionist, which takes the place of a receptionist and allows clients to directly interact with the computer when they walk in. At the Cyber Preceptionist, they can check in for their appointments, view their past purchases, look at the service menu, look at staff bios, update their own personal information, book a future appointment, and view specials.

Online booking is also available so clients can book their appointments at any time and from anywhere. To encourage customer loyalty, Mikal also has multiple marketing options like new client thank you’s, referral thank you’s, appointment reminders, birthday mailings, and special service announcements, and each can be done through e-mail or through standard mailings.
