What to Consider When Choosing Software for Your Tanning Salon Business

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

July is the official start of the tanning salon “off” season as the entire country experiences summer sunshine, long days, and vacations, with an uptick in social engagements and events like weddings. While your clients hustle and bustle about outside of the salon, tanning salon businesses are given a prime opportunity to reflect on their business, strategize for the future, and make exciting changes to prepare for the next “busy” season.

If this is you, and you’re looking to grow your sales in the next fiscal year, you need to make a few key moves to lay the foundation.

  1. First, it is important to understand your business. Evaluate your sales – can you get easy reports from your current software showing your sales, profit, bed usage, and inventory levels? – if yes, you’re on the right path! If not, take note of what you would like to see when you’re closing the season. How did the year feel? was interface with clients right, did you wish you did more marketing campaigns, sold other services? what did you miss?
  2. Once you have that overview, the next step is setting new goals for the next year, coupled with a strategy that can help you actually achieve them. What is on your wishlist of things you want to improve or see resolved before the new season comes?
  3. And finally – and this goes hand-in-hand with the first two – you need to get a tanning salon software that can grow and scale with your business without breaking the bank or being overly complex.

  1. Staffing Structure & Support

Once you know which features you need, the next thing you’ll want to cross-check within tanning salon software is how the company is structured from a staffing and support standpoint. This may seem like a backburner wishlist item when shopping for tanning salon software, but it is actually a very important element to ensuring your business’ success.

Questions to ask and things to explore about the company include but are not limited to:

  • Does the company have in-house or outsourced software development capabilities? This is important to understand more about how much the company values expanding the software to keep up with the industry’s changing trends and needs.
  • Does the company have in-house or outsourced customer support? Likewise, this also alerts you to the importance of timely and quality customer support should you need it.
  • Does the company offer any software training? Understanding if the software you choose is a learn-as-you-go experience or a hands-on, supported experience can set you up for better success when rolling out the new software in your tanning salon.
  • What do the company’s hours of operation and support hours look like? It is important to know if you run into any issues, what your first line of defense will be, and if the company is available to support you through troubleshooting should an issue arise.

There are always other questions to consider and we recommend each tanning salon do their due diligence to best understand the software company they choose to partner with and the values, structures, and offerings that are included with the software implementation.
