Vagaro: Scheduling Plus

by Staff Writer | November 28, 2011

“Giving salons the ability to market themselves on our website is what makes our company different from other salon software,” says Fred Helou, CEO of “We also understand that you have better things to work on, so instead of creating complex features you will never use, we kept things simple and to the point.” Vagaro’s single-user and multi-user packages are designed for techs and salon owners who want to run their business from any computer with Internet access or from an iPhone/Android/iTouch/iPad.

Some of the features of the single-user package include:

> Complete appointment book controls, with standing appointments and personal time off capability

> A detailed customer database with notes, formulas, and spending history

> E-mail and SMS text messaging reminders and confirmation requests

> Inventory management purchased, sold, lost, damaged, or expired and low inventory warnings

> Business reports weekly, monthly, and yearly for income, customer spending, and customer retention and attraction

> E-mail marketing to existing customers and all Vagaro users living up to 30 miles within your salon

> Online appointments

> Facebook app for customers to make appointments from your Facebook business or personal page

> Unique page and URL that acts like your website to showcase, contact info, promotions, services, styles and stylists

> Optional credit card processing, even from the iPhone/Android/iPad
The multi-user package includes all these features, plus payroll support.

Both packages start at $25 per month and come with a 30-day free trial.
