E-BOOK: SCHEDULING SOFTWARE COMPARED

We know that the opinions on online scheduling vary as widely as opinions on Personal IGs and All in ones but we wanted you to be able to take the next step in your digital world with knowledge so we did some digging on your behalf…

No software is one-size-fits-all so we broke down some of the most important benefits and drawbacks to the leading software on the market for busy stylists. This is not to say that you need to make the jump to letting your clients book themselves, only that if you are ready- we want to make that transition easier because we get asked on the daily how and where we schedule our clients behind the chair.

This breakdown is in no particular order but each software included is one that we believe brings something special to the table!

We also created a side-by-side comparison so you can focus on the features that matter most to your business.
