Top reasons why Phorest is a better choice than Mangomint for your salon or spa
Read in more detail exactly what Phorest can offer you that Mangomint can’t.
REASON #1 Protect Your Salon
No-show follow ups
No-shows cost your salon money and waste precious time. Should a client not show up, the Phorest system automatically sends a follow-up email or SMS asking them to get in touch or rebook. After a no-show, you can choose to keep the client’s deposit, take a no-show fee, or charge the full price of the treatment to their card to protect your salon revenue.
Opt-out links automatically included
Here at Phorest, we value your clients’ time and consent, which is why all marketing material sent from your system includes automatic opt-out links. As well as helping to protect your salon legally, opt-out links show that you care about your clients’ marketing preferences and don’t want to overwhelm them with marketing material they'd rather not receive.
Safe & secure consultation forms
Keep your clients safe and your salon compliant by offering professional consultation forms from Phorest. Alongside our range of pre-made templates, you can create your own consultation forms for any service and link them to client cards for easy access and editing. With pre-send and in-salon form filling available, it’s never been easier to ensure a smooth and safe salon experience for everyone involved.
REASON #2 Supercharge Your Marketing
Tried & tested marketing templates
Want to start marketing your salon but unsure where to start? Phorest offers a range of tried and tested templates for all goals and occasions. Created by our in-house marketing experts, our templates are easy to use, fully customizable, and available to send straight away or on a schedule. It’s professional marketing made easier.
Send campaigns directly from your system
We understand how important good marketing is to help your salon stand out from the crowd. Send hyper-targeted campaigns, measure success straight to your till, and plan ahead with our industry-leading marketing features. With a spelling and grammar checker, photo editor, and a portfolio of thousands of images available to use, you can start marketing like a pro.
Track direct revenue from marketing campaigns
While many other salon software systems will just track your marketing campaign open and engagement rates, Phorest tracks the revenue generated, too. Dive into some of the industry’s most detailed marketing reporting, with the option to see open rates, engagement, action-taking, and money made at a bird’s eye view or detailed level.
REASON #3 Boost Direct Bookings
Your very own salon branded booking app
Your branded booking app puts your salon into your clients' pockets. Created by Phorest and branded by you, your salon booking app allows clients to book, reschedule, and cancel appointments with ease while giving you the opportunity to send marketing material and special offers straight to their phones.
Industry-specific salon loyalty program
The salon industry is unlike any other, and your loyalty program should reflect this. Phorest’s Treatcard Loyalty Program is the largest in the industry, allowing you to assign products or services as “treats” that clients can avail of as rewards. Create a salon experience like no other while boosting client retention and higher spending, too.
Manage, publish, and reply to reviews from the system
Reviews are the lifeblood of the salon industry. With Phorest, you can set up automatic review requests after each appointment as well as manage, publish, and reply to reviews from your system. With integration into Google and Facebook, it’s never been easier to build an online reputation to be proud of and show clients new and old just how good you are.
Automated rebooking features
Keep your clients engaged without spending hours on the phone using Phorest’s automated guest rebooking features. The Phorest system uses smart technology to identify clients due to rebook, allowing you to reach out via SMS or email at just the right time to encourage them back into the salon.
Reconnect & rebook overdue clients
Reconnecting with overdue clients doesn’t have to be awkward. Phorest’s Client Reconnect identifies lapsing clients who haven’t booked in their usual timeframe, segmenting them and allowing you to reach out via a personalized SMS or email. Show them you care and invite them back into the salon.
REASON #4 Easier Management
Scheduled reports emailed to you
Here at Phorest, we understand that you’re busy, which is why we offer the option to have scheduled reports sent straight to your email at a date and time that suits you. Whether you want a weekly financial report, a monthly payroll report or a rundown of fortnightly sales, all reports in our system can be scheduled for sending, saving you time while keeping you organized and informed.
