    Hi Folks,

    Great news, Facebook have started a new program for the Book Now button and we’re one of the first to be partnered on it. We have a development team starting work on this integration now!

    We know how popular this will be, so we’ll be letting everyone know about a launch date as soon as it’s available.

  2. Phorest Pay - Deposits for certain clients / appointments

    I find it difficult to get my staff to remember to take deposits. It’s very hard to remember “problem clients” and the flash up to say the client has missed appointments is not very effective. What would be good would be to add a feature that automatically takes you to the deposit screen when booking certain appointments. For example - new clients, selected “problem clients” or certain treatments (long ones ect). A pop up to the deposit screen to ensure deposits are taken, not allowing the treatment to be booked without would be good

    Hi folks,

    Some big news here, we’re now in development on a new payment platform for Phorest. We expect this to release later this year (after summer), we have a team dedicated to this and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.

    This will allow things like larger deposits, taking deposits over the phone and charging the balance of appointments using stored credit cards on client accounts.

    Big things are coming this year!

  3. Staff - View Their Performance

    I don't want staff to access ALL reports, therefore they cannot view their own performance. When using their own pin, they should be able to see how they are performing by day/week/month versus a target, or their commission. They should be able to look at this anytime. We can do this in our other salon (using shortcuts) and it really works! This would save me lots of time in reporting it back to them each week myself, and help when running incentives or competitions too.

  4. Phorest Pay - Flag No-Show And Cancel Clients To Take A Deposit

    If you go into a clients file it shows a client that cancels or doesn't show. This should flag up when the client calls to book so a deposit can be asked for

  5. Phorest Pay - Payment & Deposit Solution

    An Integrated payment & deposit solution would allow us to take credit card reservations to cut down on no shows. Would also help with cashing up and speeding up reports

  6. Phorest Pay - Take Card Details & Charge No-Shows For All Bookings

    I would like to be able to take bank details over phone and for walk in customers so we have same facility in salon as we do online. we can charge online customers for not showing up we cant for in salon, having this added would not only save salons thousands but would make money for the people who take deposit money, please vote !

  7. Allow Online and App Product Sales (E-Commerce)

    When booking online, the system should auto suggest other services and products that others have bought and allow the client to book a product for the appointment also. This could be linked to our individual database and show products that are currently in stock.

    Hi folks,

    With everything thats been going on we’ve jumped into eCommerce and we’ll be starting to roll this out next week to our first users with a bigger release for everyone in a few weeks.
