We have talked about how Simple Salon software can give you more time, more revenue, and less stress. But today, we want to focus on an exact dollar figure you can save by using one of our features.

In our End of Spring Campaign, we are highlighting the power of online booking with deposits.

In this blog, we will show you:

  • How much time you can save
  • How time saved turns into money saved
  • How prepayment reduces no-shows and saves more money

How Much Time You Can Save?

Booking appointments over the phone takes time. Each call can take up to 5 minutes or more. Handling these calls every day adds up quickly.

With online booking, clients book their own appointments. This frees up your staff’s time to focus on clients in the salon.

For example, if your salon handles 20 appointments a day, you could save over 6 hours a week by switching to online booking.

More time saved means more time for your clients, making your salon more efficient and improving customer satisfaction.

How Time Saved Turns into Money Saved

Time is money, especially in a busy salon. Let’s break down the savings:

  • If your staff spends 5 minutes on each booking, and you have 20 bookings a day, that’s 100 minutes a day spent on the phone.

  • 100 minutes a day equals about 8.5 hours a week.

  • At an average wage of $15 per hour, that’s $127.50 a week saved.

  • Over a year (52 weeks), you could save $6,630 just by switching to online booking.

How Prepayment Reduces No-Shows and Saves More Money

No-shows can be costly for your salon. When a client doesn’t show up, you lose money. Prepayment helps reduce no-shows because clients are more likely to keep appointments they’ve already paid for.

With online booking and deposits, you can:

  • Reduce no-shows by up to 50%.

  • Ensure your schedule stays full.

  • Improve your cash flow and financial stability.

For example, if your salon has 10 no-shows a month, each costing $50, you lose $500 a month. Reducing no-shows by 50% saves you $250 a month or $3,000 a year.

Total Annual Savings

Combining time savings and reduced no-shows, your salon can save:

  • $6,630 from time saved on bookings.

  • $3,000 from reduced no-shows.

Total savings: $9,630 per year!

By using Simple Salon’s online booking and prepayment features, your salon can become more efficient and save thousands of dollars each year. Let’s see how much you can save each year with Simple Salon!

Bonus Tip: Using SMS to Further Reduce No-Shows and Reduce Administration Tasks

In addition to prepayment, using SMS reminders can further reduce no-shows and save even more money. Automated SMS reminders ensure that clients remember their appointments, reducing the likelihood of forgetting.

With SMS reminders, you can:

  • Reduce no-shows even further.

  • Save staff time from making reminder calls.

  • Automate the confirmation process, freeing up your staff to focus on clients.

By implementing SMS reminders, you can potentially save the cost of a full-time admin staff member dedicated to managing appointments and reminders, multiplying your savings even further.
