MyTime online scheduling and marketing software allows clients to make appointments and pay for their services directly from a salon’s Facebook page using MyTime’s “Book Now” button.
Salons can also embed MyTime online booking on their own website or receive a free mobile-optimized custom booking page. In addition, the software manages client records, handles in-store purchases, tracks inventory, and creates reports and analytics. MyTime also does the following:
Reduces no-shows and cancellations with SMS appointment confirmations.
Enforces your cancellation policy and charges clients who miss appointments.
Allows you to schedule appointments or update staff schedules from your computer or mobile device (cloud-based).
Allows you to create flash sales to fill open timeslots and pushes them out via social media, push notification, or email.
Prompts customers to share their reviews online, while feedback from dissatisfied clients is emailed privately to you.
Calculates sales tax, staff commissions, and profit-and-loss statements. Syncs with QuickBooks Online.
