SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ChairPro, the only cloud-based client management software designed by hairstylists for hairstylists, was officially released in the iTunes App Store this morning to a fierce round of applause from hordes of hair junkies who have since been liberated from the daily depths of administrative hell. (Available here.)
"I can't believe we made it to this point," said the co-founder of Pro Client Services, who goes by the letter K. "It wasn't all that long ago when our salon lost all its appointment data and we thought, 'There's got to be something better out there.' It can't be just a choice between paper books and clunky old programs that lose everything when you press the wrong button."
That wrong button, as it turns out, was pressed by her business partner, Lauren. "But we don't talk about that. What's important is that now we have ChairPro. It's a completely cloud-based system for your iPhone or iPad, so you will never, ever lose your appointments or your formulas. Never. We even threw a big green checkmark in the corner of the screen to indicate when your data's been safely saved in the cloud."
Built up function by function with the feedback of over 1,000 hairdressers around the world, ChairPro is more than just a secure piece of scheduling software. Its simple, highly customizable interface gives hairdressers and salon owners instant access to a suite of features that simplify all aspects of appointment booking, confirmation, reminders and contact management.
"You can even store formula notes and pictures of your clients in their profiles," said K, "so you can remember how to style their hair when they ask for 'the same as before.' I tend to be forgetful, so the ability to sync all appointments and to-do lists with my iPhone's calendar is perfect too. Lauren and I rent booths now, so we need to manage our time a lot more effectively in order to build our business."
"And that's really what we're going for here," Lauren added. "The ChairPro app is about freeing stylists up from all the boring administrative work, so we can focus on what we do best. I can guarantee you're gonna love it."
