Works well as long as you have a system in place to monitor errors and know how to correct the errors. We currently still use the softwareEasy to use and would be fantastic if the software team could resolve a couple of issues we've had. We still use the software as we are aware of it's flaw and can be easily corrected.

I reviewed this item several years ago. I just wanted to update to clients looking or salon software. Salon Iris is a great expensive software for those looking for reports, payroll, booking, online booking options and mobile booking. Online booking is $30 extra. Mobile access is $9 per tech extra. To store data in "the cloud" it is $19 extra, get it cause I lost data twice. This is a good overall complete salon booking & POS program if you don't mind paying several hundreds of dollars to upgrade every 2-3 years. They need to upgrade their online booking software with mobile app access for clients and work out the kinks in the mobile app that they started a few years ago based on feedback from actual users. Pros: Very professional system. Marketing options. Free email & text reminders that you can edit. Multiple up to three services to book at one time online, not many software systems offer that. Great record options for sales, inventory and payroll. Somewhat easy to use online booking. Offers resource options to avoid double booking equipment/rooms. Offers POS options like a register. It will take a while to learn the system but they offer easy instructions and videos to learn how to use each service. The online booking option offers a nice website. They give an option to pay monthly for their software with a key you must enter monthly. Cons: Can't delete mobile appointments. Purchasing the system does not end after the buy. After purchasing the system I have paid $500-800 to upgrade twice since my original purchase in 2008. I did not pay for the last upgrade a few years ago. Upgrades can crash an old computer so you must use an updated computer for this software. The online booking website has not been updated/upgraded for over 8 years. Double books appointments when booking online. The company offers limited assistance until it's "upgrading time". Then you must pay for help and get no more upgrades.

Paid $1,200 for the professional. I have had this system for 2 years. I am about to expand and I am going to try another software maybe millenium or virtual spa salon that I have heard good things about. I am not happy with this system. You need to purchase their epson printer, a barcode scanner and MMF register to make it work easier. Reports and Payroll is Amazing. Wish they would test the system out in a real salon before they upgrade, that is where most of the headache lies...and believe me if you own a spa or salon it is a MAJOR headache.Great report system including totals and retail, even payroll without state. Modern design and easy to schedule. Online appointment system for extra $30 month. Love the appointment reminders but hard to set up. Documents transfer to Quickbooks but I can't seem to make it work all the time and I am techy. Payroll is great and prints out checks, but does not do pay per hour and commission together. They have credit card acceptance through their system by X charge with okay rates. They also have a great gift card system by barcode scan.

I genuinely like the pay-as-you-go model they offer. Features get added without my having to do much and my monthly costs are pretty predictable. The interface is very Windowsy (if that's a word) but there is a LOT of functionality built into Salon iris so I can understand not having the super interfaces I've seen in some other salon solutions - which were easy to use, but didn't do as much. Also, L-O-V-E the customer service people when I do have a question. Powerful functionality that runs more than "just my appointment book"

I am happy to say that I'm glad I selected to use IRIS software to help manage my company over your competitors. Moreover, my partners and I are happy with the support department. We had one bad experienced with a technical support member but when our rep called us back to apologize and spent 1.57 hour to help guide us to better understand the software. Our rep is very patient and took his time walk us through the process of setting up the software and took his time showing us the great things IRIS offers that we didn't know about. Our rep is exactly what Customer Satisfaction truly means. Thank You and please keep up the GREAT job! Customers tracking, Taxes, appointment reminders. Many options and features.

I am blow away with the customer support from Salon Iris. The politeness of support staff, the patience that they have show with me and my staff getting our new Salon Iris system up and going , all has been incredible. I want to especially thank our personal support person , . (yes you get a PERSONAL support person), he continually goes out of his way to call and check on us, to see how things are going, and if we need any assistance. All staff are the most polite and kind company members I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We love our software, and are finding more and more great reports and features that we never had in the past. Using our phones for Remote booking of appointments in our small town is great, and super easy feature to use. From the client ticket you are able to Drag and move appointments on the main screen, edit clients information, see a full month to month calander to the left side of the screen ,. From staff page you can change prices charged for each stylist , change time for each stylist for each service with a few clicks. Also able to change the width of each staff members column so you can see all your staff on one screen without having to scroll. Staff scheduled hours is so easy to enter, and so easy to adjust.. even months in advanced. Back office and totals are so easy, I can see with one click all the totals for the day, and even broken down by the exact service or product purchased . We are learning more new features everyday, and all sooooo easy to use, this system has surpassed all my expectations and more! YOU ROCK SALON IRIS!!!!
