Phorest Salon Software Announces Partnership With Art of Business

With over 7,000 spas and salons as customers across the globe and growing, Phorest Salon Software is an easy-to-use, intuitive software that helps manage, market and grow your business. The system of choice for the forward-thinking salon owners, our mission is to help salons get clients back in more often, spending more and generating referrals.

Art of Business distributes some of the world’s leading industry brands, but their passion really lies in harnessing the creativity and artistry of their clients into truly successful careers. This means going beyond technical inspiration and introducing programs and ideas that make a meaningful financial difference in the lives of their clients.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership GM of Phorest US, Barry Quinn expressed how well aligned he feels the two companies are:

“We are thrilled to partner with Art of Business, it’s very clear our two organizations are obsessed with serving salons and helping salons grow. We are really excited about being able to help thousands of more salons on the East Coast, to get their clients back in more often, spending more. The team in Art of Business clearly have very deep relationships with their salons, something which we cannot wait to be a part of.” 

Josh Hafetz, President of Art of Business, reinforced their commonalities by saying: 

“We are proud to align ourselves with Phorest Salon Software. Not only does Phorest share our values of helping salons and stylists to succeed, their software is amazing! Our clients that use it currently, rave about it. Particularly, the automated client marketing and social media functionality truly drives revenue and makes your life easier.”

The alliance marks the next step in Phorest’s US growth, which saw the business open a dedicated office in the heart of Philadelphia in 2019 and celebrate signing up its 1,000th salon in North America. Barry Quinn explained: “It’s a natural next step for us as a business. We know we can offer something truly different to the salon owner, which is why we’re on track to double our clients in 2020. By joining forces with Art of Business and their amazing salons, we can make this a truly stellar year for Phorest and our valued salon clients.”
