one of the very few Salon Software that we know of that has
a full integrated accounting system with an Income Statement
and Balance sheet built-in. Most other salon programs will require
you to buy QuickBooks or some other type of bookkeeping

It was designed by a salon owner to handle the special needs of Hair,
Nail, Day Spa and Tanning Salons. It's not a worked-over version
of a system written for other businesses, as many of the
salon programs are. Nor is it a too-simple point-of-sale
& accounting program that doesn't tell you anything
about how well your business is doing. The thing that
makes Unique Salon Software especially easy to use is
that its fully menu driven and it shows you what to do.

takes you step-by-step through the initial set-up, a
onetime procedure that will take perhaps 30 minutes of
your time. Enter your services, employee codes, and a
miscellaneous retail item number and your sales tax
rate, to ring up retail sales until you get all of your
inventory in. You can enter your client information as
they come into the salon ... and you are ready... that's
it... Unique has the capability of logging directly into your computer via the internet
and make changes as necessary or to demonstrate a particular feature
of the software to get you up and running. In other words we can remotely control
your computer from our location while you watch and talk with a support personnel over the phone...
that's completed you can teach the basic day-to-day
operation of the Unique Salon Software to staff members

developed for use by people who have no computer
training whatsoever. In most situations the receptionist
Ideally, Unique Salon Software is used as a point-of-sale system. In
this way most of the information that the computer
program needs is process at the time a sales transaction
(haircut, perm, facial, manicure, retail product sale,
etc.) is rung up, just as you would with a regular cash
register. Then, at the end of the day, it takes another
four to six minutes of your time to count your money
& close out the register sales and go home. That's

computer located back in the office or at home. You lose
the benefit of the instant input at the time of the

books are done by an accountant. Does becoming
computerized mean I have to go it alone?"
Just the reverse. Many, many Unique Salon Software programs have been
sold on the enthusiastic recommendation of accountants
who reviewed the program and urged their clients to make
the move into computerization. With your computerized
reports in hand, your accountant can sit down with you
as necessary to take a look at where your business is
heading. That's a far better investment of your money
than paying for number-crunching alone.

that help me run my salon better?"
As you already know, bookkeeping alone won't teach you much about how
to make more money. Unique Salon Software goes far
beyond merely keeping track of income and expenses. It
gives you vital up-to-the-second management information
that you probably never had before. Like measuring
employee productivity. Keeping track of response to ads
and coupons. Watching over your retail product
inventory. And producing reports that are easy to understand
and act upon.

Absolutely. You can track the activity of all separate departments.

who did not come back for a specific service within a
specific time. It tells you who are your new clients so
that you can send them a welcome card. It will help you
manage your clients in ways you never dreamed of. Most
salons are looking for new clients, but if they could
manage their in-house clients, they would be better off.
For example, in a matter of seconds the system will tell
you all the clients that have a birthday this month.

Salon Software also maintains individual perm and hair
coloring records and automatically totals up the amount
of money each client has spent with you during the year.

Mailings are a snap to get out because the program prints labels and
