Shortcuts Review

Reviewed 2 months ago

I have used shortcuts for my salon and have recently added this system to my new clinic that I am opening, we are absolutely made up with their customer services and what they can offer my business. Jay in particular has been amazing with making sure that everything is running smoothly for us. We could not recommend them enough.

Pros

This is a quick and easy software to use within our busy salon

Cons

Sometimes this system needs rebooting as there can be a syncing error that occurs
