Top reasons why Phorest is a better choice than Meevo 2 for your salon
Read in more detail exactly what Phorest can offer you that Meevo 2 can’t.
REASON #1 Supercharge your marketing
Market to your clients directly through your software
With Phorest you can send marketing SMS & email directly through the software, allowing you to create more impactful campaigns that take your clients’ history and preferences into account.
See marketing ROI right to the register
Because our marketing, management and reporting tools are integrated, you can see the impact of your marketing spend all the way to the register - see how much revenue your campaigns brought in, and even what services and products your clients were prompted to buy.
Most salons only have email addresses for 30% of their clients. Don’t put all that effort into beautiful marketing promotions, only to miss 70% of your clients! Phorest is the only salon software with a Fallback SMS feature that lets you send a link to your promotion, via SMS, to clients that do not have a valid email address on their client card.
More 5-star reviews online
Phorest’s online reputation manager not only allows you to manage all your online reviews in one place, and gathers private feedback from not-so-happy customers, but it also helps you get hundreds of 5 star reviews on Google, Facebook and Yelp, prompting your best reviewers to share their comments online in one click. Let your online reputation generate referrals for you while you sleep.
REASON #2 Boost direct bookings
Free SMS to clients overdue to rebook
Machine learning in Phorest recognises when your clients are overdue to rebook their usual services, and you can send an SMS to them, free of charge, to remind them to make that booking asap.
Automated Rebooking feature
Taking that one step further, if you don’t want to remember to hit send on that campaign to your overdue clients each day, you can use the automated rebooking feature to automatically send that reminder SMS for you.
Keep your clients coming back and spending more with our Treatcard Loyalty program, designed specifically for salons. Our Treatcard salons enjoy a 30% rise in clients average spend and a 21% boost in revenue.
Protect your staff and your clients by minimising close contact, but keep revenue coming into your salon with video consultations. Confirmations, reminders and video links are automatically created and sent to clients and staff. Just login and chat!
REASON #3 Protect your salon
Multiple no-show alerts
Unreliable clients can leave you with empty timeslots and cost valuable revenue. Phorest automatically adds a note to client records when a client doesn’t show for an appointment, and you’ll get a ‘multiple no-show’ alert when they try to book with you over the phone. This allows you to turn them away, or request they book online with a deposit, allowing you to capture their payment details and charge a no-show fee should it happen again.
REASON #4 Support
Dedicated Salon Success Manager to help you increase salon revenue
With many other salon software providers you’ll get an account manager to help you get set up, but once you’re up and running you won’t hear from them again. With Phorest you’ll be assigned a Salon Success Manager to make sure you’re getting the most from your software, supporting you to keep growing your business and increasing your revenue.
