Does Your Salon Have A Computer Management System?

Should it? You bet cha’ … To start a salon, you need top quality stylist’s and to grow your business, you must invest in technology. A salon software program can maximize productivity, streamline operations and give you more control over your business so you can focus on making your clients look their best. Running a salon today without a computer salon management system is like flying blind.
The world’s first salon management software program was designed in 1984 by Dallas hair stylist Jon Maples. Frustrated by a lack of computer applications suitable for his salon business, Jon turned to his wife, Renee, a successful business woman, and his brother, Tom, a computer programmer. To serve the needs of Jon’s salon they created a “hairdresser friendly” salon software program dubbed “Salon Transcripts” to run on an Apple operating system. Within a year, Jon had formed an exclusive alliance with the Sebastian hair care company. The newly formed entity, known at this time as “Sebastian Salon Transcripts,” and almost overnight became the leader in salon software systems. In the early 90s, the Wella Company bought Sebastian, nullifying the exclusivity contract between Sebastian and Salon Transcripts and Jon changed the name to STX “the art of salon & spa management”.

I was fortunate to meet Jon and Renee in 1987 shortly after they started the company and had them install the Salon Transcript management system in my hair styling studio and have used it ever since. With a click of the mouse making payroll and inventory management was a snap. Although there are now many salon software programs on the market nothing comes close to the STX system. Today’s STX software is the most powerful, advanced, flexible, and yes, down-right beautiful salon and spa operating system in the beauty industry. It’s built with the future in mind and packed with powerful sophisticated booking capabilities taking full use of the Internet allowing your salon to send e-mail clients and them to book appointment online.
It come with a cool DVD training program that make start up a breeze even for those of us with “zero” computer experience making it the easiest salon system to learn and use. It books appointments, manages inventory, tracks receipts, manages cash, payroll and much more. And their 24-7 technical support is a phone call way.
Take a quick tour of the STX “art of salon management” online at . Or see STX in action up close a personal at a trade shows and while your at it say hello to Jon Maples for me.
