A barber salon is an emerging business dealing with both traditional hair styling to all other cosmetic treatments. They might come in different categories like a small one owned and worked by the owner itself and a large multibranched shop having branches at different locations with trained and experienced beauticians. If any event or occasion appears we urgently need a salon treatment.
But when we visit our favorite one it seems full. Well, that’s a tragedy. But what if we can book our appointment like we book a movie ticket or a table in a restaurant, that sounds amazing! Isn’t it? Here we are talking about building a Barber Salon app that will be handy enough to handle both by owners as well as customers.
Why do we need to build a Barber salon App?
Barber salon shops are the most demandable business concurring a special position in our society. The concern of people towards grooming and beautifying themselves increases its need. This is not only serving people but also making people independent those who are considering it as their lifeline.
Due to the highly increasing technology and use of mobile phones, it is more convenient to have a Barber salon app for all the salon shops whether it is a multibranched large shop or a singularly managed small shop. It will make it easier for both the owner to manage all sorts of things as well as for the customer to connect with them. An owner might use the app for managing and tracking work records, customer orders, beauticians and their work, product storage, appointment booking and managing, payments and control of more than one customer at one time.
Some features that a Barber Salon app should have, which will be convenient both for Owners as well as Customers
For making a Barber salon going smoothly online the owner should have a barber salon app with various kinds of features. This will make the app more likable and acceptable to the customers and they can use all features properly.
Time slots for Booking an appointment
The main feature for a Barber Salon app is that it should provide a particular time slot, where there is any slot available for the customers to book the appointment. It will be more convenient for the customer to book their slot according to their schedule and it will show a great impact like how they are concerned about customers' valuable time.
Selecting a personal beautician
This feature should apply to those shops which have large trained beautician facilities and with experience. Every beautician has a unique style to deal with their customers. Some are good at their work, some are good at their behavior, and some are well experienced. Customers have the right to choose their favorite beautician on their service. If they can choose that by the app then they will be more pleased and will be happy with the service. They also recommend the shop to others for their good service as well as will visit frequently.
Managing the staff and customers
This feature will be helpful for the admin or owner to manage the customer and the staff. It will also apply for a big barber salon shop having multiple branches. The owner can manage the appointments of the customers as well as the beauticians so that they can manage the time and also be able to manage the other daily customers with other beauticians.
Managing overall business as well as seasonal deals and offers
As all the business setups are managed through a mobile app the owner should be able to manage the appointment booking, like how many customers are booking their appointment and whether they are visiting the shop or not. There must be some offers and deals the owner is providing to the customers like offers on first booking, offers on special products, offers on some special occasions, offers for some limited times, etc, which will enhance the marketing quality as well as attract the customers.
The App should also have customer-friendly special features
Navigation and location
The delivery apps bring orders for the restaurants. So, it's obvious that they would share the revenue with restaurants to be a win-win situation for both the delivery service owner and the restaurant.
A privacy communication of the customer with the beauticians
There should be personal chat facilities where the customer is able to communicate with the beautician easily and be able to open up about their treatments and problems.
Payment through UPI or mobile net-banking
This feature will be beneficial for the customer to go cashless and pay their payments online without any tension of keeping cash and changes. They also are able to book their appointment prepaid, which will be good for the shop for the confirmation of the appointment.
Well organized impressive Catalogues
A shop attracts its customers through its arrangements and services. A well-designed catalogue which will contain all kinds of information including the deals, offers and price can also attract the customers. It can also be provided in the app so that the customers will be able to go through the deals and prices before booking an appointment.
A visualized Presentation and feedback about customer service
It might cost a little but the advertisement of satisfied customers and their feedback can have a good impact on the business and will attract more customers.
How much does it cost to build a Barber Salon App?
There are two platforms to launch an app one is Android and another one is iOS. It depends upon the owner’s budget whether they want to launch the app in one system or both the system. The total cost to build an app development and its launch depends on how many features you are adding to it. There are a lot of companies that are developing mobile apps. They can give a full description of the cost. They are also going to provide pieces of information about its future preferences and update facilities.
