Meet some of our customers:

“You may think this is an additional cost that you cannot afford but, believe me, it pays for itself.”

I have used software packages for many years and discovered Phorest 2 years ago. It’s hard to believe but they have reinvented the way we run our business.

The actual software is very easy to use for all the staff but it’s the blogs, updates and advice by industry experts that I get that has been amazing.

I would advise taking on the salon app which our clients love and make use of the text and email messaging service. You may think this is an additional cost that you cannot afford but believe me it pays for itself.

Lastly the Phorest team and customer support is the best I have ever come across.

Sue Palmer from Salon 112.
“We were very nervous about the change to being computerised.”

Nothing is ever too much trouble for the team. We were very nervous about the change to being computerised but a year on would not be without it.

Even when we ask silly little things they guide us through.

The marketing is great and so easy to use, I would say just do it and with the team at phorest to lead you you will never look back.

Debbie Hulbert, Owner, Charter Cutting Company.
“We conducted a massive amount of research into salon software.”

We have just established a large beauty salon and skin clinic.

We initially conducted a massive amount of research into salon software concluding that Phorest is streets ahead of everything else currently available on the market.

It is utterly superb software and I can’t speak highly enough of it. It’s easy to use, responsive, clever and well thought-out.

Its wide-ranging capabilities are second-to-none and will make (and save) us a lot of money – we are delighted with it.

I particularly like the ‘at risk’ facility which identifies those clients who have not visited the salon in the past few months.

In addition, the service, training, advice and tips throughout the setup and training have proved invaluable. Thank you so much Phorest – you have made all of our lives considerably easier!

Debbie Tams, Director, Beauty and The Bistro.
“You’re not just another number to them.”

Phorest software without doubt all pros no cons, by far the best salon software I have ever worked with, the software is very easy to use, easy on the eye, it covers everything you can think of and it is improving everyday there’s always more and more improvements, so happy we made the move six months ago and will never look back.

Can’t wait to avail of all the extra free training Phorest has to offer, they are always wanting to improve and increase your profits for your business.

I feel that as a company Phorest make you feel that your business is priority and you’re not just another number/account to them, that itself goes along away.
