        Go to top of page Is Magic Salon Tailored To My Business?  

    Absolutely!...

    Magic Salon Systems Pty Ltd has from inception, tailored Magic Salon around specific needs of the Hair and Beauty Industry.

    There is no doubt that Magic Salon Systems Software would not have the industry specific functionality that it has, were it not for the imput received from existing client end users.

    A testament to this fact is that most salon software developers make every effort to emulate Magic Salon functionality.

    We are quite proud of the relationship that exists between our company and our client end users, this relationship enables their input into the enhancement of what is ostensibly our product, but in reality, is theirs.

        Go to top of page Can A Small Salon Survive Without Salon Management Software  

    Probably, however...

    Salon owners who fail to computerize in response to the endlessly increasing pressures on their time and mind, to gather, retain, collate and put to use information such as: -

    Client Personal Details, Client Accounts, Client Histories, Client Record Security, Staff Information Records, Wages and Salaries, Incentive Payments, Staff Annual Leave, Pay As You Go Taxation, Staff Taxation Group Certificates, Staff Annual Leave Loading, State Awards, Salon Marketing, Growing The Business, Direct Marketing To Client Base, Direct Marketing To Non-Client Base, Suppliers Details, Stock & Inventory, Stock Ordering, Price Control, Price Adjustments, Stock Transfers, Stock Returns, Stock Price Discounting, Information Security, Banking, Tax Collection for Federal Governments, Compliance with Local, State and Federal Government Laws & By-laws.

    Which is just a small, indicative..... But frightening sample of demands on your time, and mind.....

    May fail in their endeavors to remain viable and competitive.

    Other local Salon's, large or small are computerizing and they will have an edge in business management and marketing aggressiveness that may erode your business.....

    The small salon owner and for that matter even the large salon owner needs to computerize if the Salon is to survive the rigors of today's business environment.
