Why is a system important in 2021?
With GDPR regulations and more regulations around patch testing, it is vital that client information is kept safe and secure. A system does this and helps you stay compliant with the law. More than this it will save you time! From managing your wages to sending stock orders to your rep, a good system will save you hours of time which you can invest back into your clients.
Launched in 2018, Slick is like a digital receptionist and business manager – with the simple objective of helping salon owners with affordable, easy to use technology and offering the tools to control every aspect of your business. Slick’s technology has been adopted by just under 1000 high street salons in the UK from multi-site chains to freelance rent-a-chair stylists – there is no contract and subscription fees start at £10 per month.

We’ve seen a 320% increase in salons taking deposits as owners look to protect the business from dreaded no-shows. SlickPay allows you to send a customised SMS to your client to allow them to pay their deposit via our secure payment gateway.
Keep clients updated on all your plans after re-opening, new patch testing guidelines or last minute availability. The Slick. 2-way messaging allows you to chat to your clients to reassure them and get them booked in. Smart tools allow you to see top spending clients or loyal clients who haven’t booked back in.
The smart AI booking platform can be set to only allow approved services to be booked by clients. For example to avoid clients booking colour appointments – simply turn off that category. Top tip: most salons are now taking a 50% deposit when taking online bookings to give them added peace of mind.
