With more time to do the important things, the workload is naturally reduced. Less time is spent jotting down information and updating forms, on calculating totals, digging through files … less time is spent on the numbingly laborious. The added value of time can’t be measured by conventional means, but it can be measured in concept when payroll is run and checks are printed from the same program that just received a new shipment of hydrating serum. They say time is money, and software has taken time and turned it into a negligible value. The ordinarily time-consuming processes of business have been rendered down to minute operations simplified by computer software. With efficiency handled by software, employees have more time to spend with what really matters in the spa industry: the clients.
