Whether your salon or spa is a franchise, a chain, or a blend of both models, finding the right platform for your enterprise business can be a difficult process. Enterprises have complex needs, which means it’s even more important to make the right platform choice. And by “right” we mean a platform that offers long-term growth, helps to scale your business, and continues to provide a true partnership. In order to find the best platform possible, we recommend keeping the following four things top of mind during your search.
1. Look for a comprehensive platform that will offer consistency
Running an enterprise business means managing many complex workflows, so it’s important to choose a platform that’s prepared to help you consolidate cross-location operations all under one roof. If the platform you’re considering isn’t solving all of your multi-location needs, odds are it’s not a good fit. Be on the lookout for features that allow you to seamlessly add new locations, track membership and gift card reconciliation, and ensure brand consistency within all client communications. The ideal platform will give you a birds-eye view of your business, from the full corporate level to an individual look at every location, territory, or region.
