Top reasons why Phorest is a better choice than Salon by Premier for your salon

Read in more detail exactly what Phorest can offer you that Salon by Premier can’t.

REASON #1 Easier management




REASON #2 Supercharge your marketing




REASON #3 Boost bookings & retail sales




REASON #4 Protect your salon

No-show protection with variable deposits

Add another layer of protection for your salon when taking online bookings by setting smart deposit levels depending on who’s booking. Set larger deposits from higher no-show risks, such as new clients or those who have been no-shows in the past. You can also customise deposit amounts for services that require you to have costly professional products in-stock before the appointment.

No Show Deposits - new brand feature

REASON #5 Support second to none

Dedicated Business Advisor 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 Business Advisor to make sure you’re getting the most from your software, supporting you to keep growing your business and increasing your revenue.
