Top reasons why Phorest is a better choice than Meevo for your salon or spa
Read in more detail exactly what Phorest can offer you that Meevo can’t.
REASON #1 Supercharge your marketing
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 and spas 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.
Integrated photo editor & spellcheck
Give your salon marketing campaigns the professional edge they deserve with Phorest’s integrated photo editor and spelling and grammar checker. Our powerful, yet easy-to-use photo editor ensures your pictures always look great, while an integrated spelling and grammar check ensures you’re getting your message across without any mistakes.
Your salon-branded app, created by Phorest
Here at Phorest, we build your app for you in-house, we don’t use a third-party company to create apps. This means that your app is fully integrated with your software, giving you rich insights into your app bookings and usage, so you can be sure you’re getting the most from it. Your app allows clients to, reschedule, see service history, and receive marketing comms right from their phone, making things easier for you and them.
REASON #2 Boost direct bookings
Free SMS to clients overdue to rebook
Machine learning in Phorest recognizes 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.
Facebook & Instagram online booking integration
Allow your clients to book from anywhere with Phorest’s online booking social media integrations. Our team will connect your online booking platform to Facebook and Instagram for you via a sleek button in your bio, giving your socials that professional flair while encouraging clients to book from wherever they’re browsing online.
REASON #3 Support
Access to Phorest’s award-winning educational resources
When you join Phorest, you’re joining a community of motivated, growth-focused industry professionals. Expand your knowledge of the system by delving into the Phorest Academy program, collaborate with your dedicated Business Advisor to help your business grow, or hear from industry experts on the PhorestFM podcast and Phorest blog. We’re more than just a salon software.
REASON #4 Grow your business
Track loyalty program success via reports
When implementing a loyalty program in your salon or spa, it’s important to see exactly how it’s performing. That’s why Phorest’s Treatcard, the industry’s largest loyalty program, integrates seamlessly with your Phorest reporting suite. See what services are being rewarded as treats, how much money you’re making, and how your program is performing, all at the click of a button.
Flexible deposits based on clients’ booking habits
We understand that there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” in the salon industry. With Phorest, you have full control over who pays what deposits when booking online, allowing you to take higher deposits for higher-risk clients, like previous no-shows or first-time visitors, while taking smaller deposits from your regulars.
