Check the total package. When you’ve narrowed down your choices and are prepared to make your purchase, inquire about on-site training offerings. Spending the money and time necessary to have one of the software company’s experts come into your spa to install the software and spend a day teaching you and your staff how to navigate the programs is usually a wise investment. While most companies do have customer service numbers to call, you cannot replace hands-on training in your workplace. This training can save hours of time that will save you and your spa money.

Make the switch. If you have existing software that you are not happy with it, make the switch. It may be stressful and time-consuming, but think of the long run and how much money and time can be saved in the future by making the right choice now.

For better business

There are a lot of innovative software companies out there. As a business owner, you have the responsibility to find the one that is best for your spa’s needs. Take the time, do the research, shop around and get your hands dirty. For an investment as important as your spa’s software, you’ll be glad you took the time to make the best decision possible.
