Top reasons why Phorest is a better choice than SalonIQ for your salon

Read in more detail exactly what Phorest can offer you that SalonIQ can’t.

REASON #1 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 #2 Supercharge your marketing


REASON #3 Boost direct bookings


REASON #4 Easier management

Pre-send digital consultation forms

Build bespoke forms or choose from our library of templates, and send to clients to fill out before their appointment, saving time and minimising close contact.


REASON #5 Renowned Support Team

We'll set you and your team up with comprehensive onboarding training; and you can book additional online training sessions with us for as long as you like. New staff starting in the future? No problem, we'll get them trained up too at no extra cost.

Support second to none

Our friendly support team is on call, email or chat, and they're renowned for going above and beyond to answer your questions, big or small, as quickly as they possibly can. 'Seirbhís go hiontach' (excellence in service) is a driving mantra here at Phorest.

“We have successfully migrated hundreds of salons from SalonIQ to Phorest. SalonIQ unfortunately keep a tight grip on the data that you should own, but once you work with them to unlock it,  the team and I will help to make the process as simple as possible for you – we can import your client list, appointments and history, staff, services and more. If there’s anything we can’t import for you, our onboarding team will guide you through our simple input process, so you can make the transition with zero downtime at your salon.”
