25 Must-Have Accounting Software Integrations for 2017

Integartions

Is your accounting or invoicing software missing something? Does your current feature set not quite meet the mark?

You may be tempted to throw in the towel, but before giving up on your software completely (and dealing with the hassle of transferring all your data over to a new solution), it’s time to consider the advantage of using your current program’s integrations and add-ons.

Integrations are an excellent way to supplement your existing software; all good accounting solutions come with a number of integrations (if yours doesn’t then maybe it really is time to switch). These integrations can encompass everything from payment gateways and CRM to receipt management and tax support.

We get it—in situations like this it’s difficult to even know where to begin. So to help you get started, we have put together a list of the top 25 integrations to boost your software’s functionality and help your small business succeed in the new year. We chose integrations that are common across multiple accounting and invoicing software platforms and have divided them into categories to make everything even easier for you.

But first, let’s get some basics out of the way.

How Do Integrations (and Add-ons) Work?

The integration process is really quite simple. If it’s even remotely worth its salt, your accounting or invoicing software is already fast friends with other apps or software; like any good business partner, your accounting software should work to introduce you its third-party buddies so you can all shake hands, play nice, and begin working together. Note: Healthy (and legal) human friendships do not usually involve an exchange of money, but you will usually have to pay an extra fee for 3rd-party integrations.

Most often, there is a place to access potential integrations within your accounting dashboard. Once you’ve set up an account with the 3rd-party selection of your choice, data will automatically sync between the applications.

Makes sense, right? Okay, time to move on to the actual list…

Payment Gateways:

Between Stripe, Square, PayPal, Forte, Authorize.net, WePay, and countless other payment gateways, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all your choices. Which is the best for your company? It’s hard for me to say without knowing your exact situation, but it is easy for me to share our Merchant Maverick favorites.

1. Braintree

Compatible accounting solutions: FreshBooks, Hiveage, and Invoicera. There is also API for developers.

Braintree is a popular payment gateway and merchant account service and one of our top choices at Merchant Maverick (we’ve given it a full 5/5 stars). Braintree offers great customer service, as well as a good selection of merchant account features. Some of these features include recurring billing, international account support, buyable pins on Pinterest (still in beta), and strong mobile apps.

Pricing:

  • Credit Card – 2.9% + $0.30/per transaction

If you are interested in Braintree, check out our full Braintree review for more details.

2. PayPal

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Pro, Invoice2go, Harvest, GoDaddy Online Bookkeeping, AND CO, Invoicely, LessAccounting, Saasu, KashFlow, ClearBooks, BillingOrchard, Sage One,  Zoho Invoice, Zoho Books, and Wave.

You knew it was coming. PayPal is a world-renowned payment gateway and merchant account used by over 192,000,000 people. The service is easy to use and is available with virtually every accounting and invoicing software. PayPal offers a mobile app as well as free invoice creation.

Pricing:

  • In Store – 2.7%/per US swipe
  • Online & Invoicing – 2.9% +$0.30/per transaction

Price discounts are available for nonprofits and charities.

There is a history of user complaints about PayPal withholding funds, so our recommendation is that you may not want to rely solely on PayPal for your processing needs. For the most part, though, the company is well-liked. To read our full review, go here. If you are interested, we’ve also written a comprehensive review of the mobile version of PayPal.

Payroll:

Your company is growing, but your accounting software can’t keep pace—not in terms of payroll. What’s a business owner to do? Never fear; check out the following integration before throwing your current software out with the bathwater.

3. Gusto                                                                                                            

Compatible accounting solutions: FreshBooks, Xero, QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Pro. There is API for developers.

Gusto is a full-fledged Payroll processor (we actually use it for our own payroll here at Merchant Maverick). This software works to manage part-time, full-time, hourly, and salary employees, as well as contractors (or any combination of the five). In terms of features, you can’t beat Gusto. The complete payroll package includes benefits, health insurance, 401ks, reimbursements, vacation days, and sick days. You can even organize employees and contractors by team and pay everyone via direct deposit.

Pricing:

  • Base Price – $39/mo + $6/per employee

Gusto offers a free 30-day trial. To learn more visit the Gusto site.

Project Management:

Project management can be one of the most useful features in an accounting solution (and one of my personal favorites). Sadly, very few software companies offer project management tools—not even Xero or QuickBooks Online. This is when project management integrations come in very handy.

4. Basecamp

Compatible accounting solutions: Blinksale, Harvest, LessAccounting, FreeAgent, and Invoicely. There is API for developers.

Basecamp is used by over 100,000 business owners, just like yourself. The software is completely cloud-based and very user-friendly; it comes with all the features you would expect—projects, tasks, job costing reports—but also includes a lot of unexpected but very welcomed surprises. Some of these extra features include team communication tools and group chat, scheduling, to-do lists, automatic check-ins, reminders, client reviews, and gift certificates. The software also offers mobile apps for both iPhone and Android.

Pricing:

  • $99/mo

Teachers and students can actually access this software for free, and non-profits get a 50% discount. You can also receive a discount for paying annually. Basecamp offers a free 30-day trial.

To learn more about Basecamp, read our full review and/or watch this How It Works video.

5. WorkflowMax

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, MYOB, and MoneyWorks. There is API for developers.

If you are looking for something on the cheaper side, WorkflowMax, a project management and time management hybrid, might be a better choice for your business. For such a small scale software, it is surprisingly common amongst accounting software integrations. Workflow Max’s features include jobs, tasks, timelines, quotes, invoicing, job costing reports, automated notification, and the ability to track time. Pricing is broken up by number of users.

Pricing:

  • 1 user – $15/mo
  • 2-5 users – $49/mo
  • 6-10 users– $110/mo
  • 11-20 users –$170/mo
  • 21-50 users – $250/mo

Learn more about WorkflowMax on their website or read our full review and see why we gave the software 4/5 stars.

Time Management:

Another integral feature often overlooked by accounting and invoicing software is the ability to track time. But hey, that’s what integrations are for!

6. Temponia

 

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, Zoho Invoice, Zoho Books, QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Pro.

“When tracking time becomes saving time.”

That’s the motto of Temponia, a cloud-based time management software. Temponia offers an incredibly beautiful UI as well as scalable pricing plans. The software’s features are well laid-out and organized with a calendar interface. When you sign up for Temponia, you’ll get time tracking, budgeting, reports, reminders, timers, projects, and invoicing (that is better than even some invoicing software).

Pricing:

  • Starter – $5.90/mo
  • Team – $28/mo
  • Business – $49/mo
  • Enterprise – $122.50/mo

You can see pricing details and sign up for a free live demo here.

7. T-sheets

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Pro. There is API for developers.

Another time management option is T-sheets—a time tracking software with an optional booking component. This software is cloud-based and provides additional mobile apps. T-sheets differs from Temponia in a few key areas. In addition to time tracking and projects, T-sheets supports job-costing, POT (paid time off) tracking, approvals, shift scheduling, employee alerts and reminders, and a see-who’s-working feature. It is a time management, project management, and booking software all in one. Pricing varies depending on number of users.

Pricing:

  • 1 user – free
  • 2-99 users – Base fee of $16/mo + $5/mo per user
  • 100+ users – Base fee of $100/mo + $5/mo per user

You can receive a discount by paying annually, and a free trial of the software is available for those interested. Check out the T-sheets website for further details.

Point of Sale (POS) Software:

Outgrowing your invoicing tools and looking for a way to take your business’s sales to the next level? Here are our top 5/5 star POS recommendations.

8. Vend

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, QuickBooks Online, and KashFlow. There is API for developers.

Vend, an intuitive SaaS program with great customer service, takes the cake for retail POS, especially for iPad users. Even though Vend is cloud-based, during internet outages the software will continue to work; it simply syncs stored data when the internet returns, which is pretty sweet if you ask me. In addition to operating as a basic POS system, Vend offers reports, inventory, stock control, customer profiles, and gift cards. Here is a basic summation of Vend’s pricing, but be sure to look at each plan in more detail to see which features you’re getting.

Pricing:

  • Free
  • Starter – $69/mo
  • Advanced – $99/mo
  • Multi-Outlet – $249/mo

There is a discount available for paying annually rather than monthly. It’s worth noting that Vend offers no API, so you won’t be able to design custom integrations. Learn more about why we love Vend in our full review and take the software for a spin with this free trial.

9. SalesVu

Compatible accounting solutions: QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Pro. There is API available for developers.

Unlike Vend, SalesVu offers retail, restaurant, and service-industry POS—so whatever your business may be, SalesVu most likely has options for you. Like Vend, the software is easy to use and has good customer service. The system is designed for iPads and iPhones; features vary significantly depending on which type of POS you choose and include inventory, contact management, table reservations, online appointment scheduling, gift cards; you get the drift. The pricing plan is a bit confusing so bear with me.

Pricing:

  • Basic Restaurant Bundle – $75/mo
  • Basic Retail Bundle – $75/mo
  • Basic Beauty and Wellness Bundle – $75/mo
  • SalesVu for Restaurants – $150/mo
  • SalesVu for Retail – $150/mo

11. Shopify

Compatible accounting solutions: QuickBooks Online, Bench Accounting, Xero, Sufio, Billy, AccountEdge, KashFlow, e-conomic, FreshBooks, Debitoor, and Sage 50. There is API for developers.

If you hadn’t heard of Shopify before, you have now—and I promise you will never live to regret it. Shopify is one of the biggest names in the eCommerce world, and for good reason. The company hosts over 325,000 online stores; it is easy to use and mobile-friendly. We often recommend it here at Merchant Maverick, especially because of the great features and scalable pricing plans.

Expense Tracking:

You probably got accounting or invoicing software so you could rid yourself of your Excel sheet/receipt box bookkeeping habits. So why do those receipts keep piling up? Why is your shoebox still overflowing? The answer is simple: you haven’t tried these expense tracking tools yet.

12. Receipt Bank

Compatible accounting solutions: Sage One, Xero, Twinfield, QuickBooks Online, KashFlow, FreshBooks, and FreeAgent. There is API for developers.

Receipt Bank is one of the most common expense management integrations on the market. Over 60,000 users rely on Receipt Bank to make uploading expenses easier. How does it work? Well, you simply use Receipt Bank’s mobile apps to snap a picture of your receipt. The app then extracts the important information and saves it to the expenses section of your accounting software. Pretty neat, huh? You can also set automation rules to streamline the process even more.

Single User Pricing:

  • 50 Items – $14.99/mo
  • 100 Items – $29.98/mo
  • 150 Items – $44.97/mo

Multi-User Pricing:

  • 50 Items – $25/mo
  • 100 Items – $40/mo
  • 150 Items – $55/mo

There are two larger plans available upon request. Receipt Bank also realizes that anticipating items is tricky and offers a flexible item limit policy. Additionally, you can take advantage of a 14-day free trial of the software so you can become better acquainted with this time-saving tool.

13. Shoeboxed

Compatible accounting solutions: QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Online, Xero, GoDaddy Online Bookkeeping, and Wave. There is API for developers.

Shoeboxed is another big player in the receipt management world. It is just intuitive as ReceiptBank, albeit a little different. Instead of taking pictures of your receipts, you place them in a free “magic envelope,” send them off, and everything is taken care of for you. Shoeboxed takes the data from your receipts and archives them for you automatically. In addition to expense management, Shoeboxed also offers basic CRM features and reporting. For a full list of features, go here.

  • Classic – $29.95/mo
  • Business – $49.95/mo

Learn more about Shoeboxed here.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM):

Almost all accounting and invoicing software programs come with CRM features, but the quality of these tools varies significantly between companies. If you’re looking for CRM capabilities your current software doesn’t provide, it might be worth investing in a CRM-focused add-on.

14. Insightly

Compatible accounting solutions: Xero, QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Pro. There is API for developers.

I don’t know if I believe this company when they claim “our CRM gives you super powers,” but I do believe Insightly is a super powerful CRM.

One of the coolest ways Insightly helps generate sales and new customers is by integrating directly with your email, social media site, and website to automatically create an address book of leads.

18. Zendesk

Come tax time, simply send the proper forms to your employees via email. They will fill them out in an incredibly user-friendly portal (I’ve done it myself and the process is easy as can be).

Compatible accounting solutions: Sage, Sage 100, Sage 500, QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Pro, Zoho Invoice, Zoho Books, Xero, and Intacct. There is API available for developers.

Avalara is a sales tax solution for small businesses. A few accounting software companies have made Avalara a part of their system out-of-the-box, while many others offer it as an optional integration. Basically, this add-on automatically determines the sales tax for your clients based on geolocation, saving you time (and since time is money, well it’s saving you that too).

The worst part about Avalara is that they do not post prices on their site and request interested persons to call them instead. You’re probably thinking, “So I have to make a phone call? Big whoop!” Well, it wouldn’t be an issue except that the Avalara representatives are incredibly pushy and pricing can be a bit steep.

That being said, this add-on may still be worth it for the ease of automated sales tax. That’s up to you to decide. You can learn more by watching this video and the visiting the Avalara site.

Sumac is a locally installed program (though you can pay an extra $25/mo for use with the cloud). The software begins with basic CRM (the Bronze plan below) that is tailored to manage and store nonprofit information specifically. The feature set of the software depends on the specific plan you choose, but your choice in features can include time tracking, invoicing, email marketing, donation management, event management, grant management, booking, auctions, and more.

Operate A Service-Based Business? Make Certain Your POS System Has These 3 Features

Thinking about finding reason for purchase (POS) software for the service-based business? Because the title want to know , suggests, you&#8217ve certainly come right place.

Something-based business is what it may sound enjoy it is: a company that provides something (or services) instead of food products or merchandise. Should you&#8217re a hairdresser, beautician, aesthetician, manicurist, dog groomer, interior designer, or massage counselor, you take something-based business.

A retail small business a POS that supports great inventory features. That&#8217s confirmed. A cafe or restaurant small business a POS that handles split checks and table service. But where performs this leave service and hospitality companies? What unique small business are intrinsic to service and hospitality? Furthermore, what for anyone who is searching for inside a POS solution that addresses these service-based needs?

I&#8217m glad you requested! Keep studying for any description of most important features a service-based POS can provide.

Scheduling

This is actually the big one. Remember, with regards to something-based business, you&#8217re not selling an actual item (or at best less your primary business focus). What you’re selling is the time, your skill-set, as well as your understanding. You&#8217ll require a POS system that’s particularly made to accommodate your company model. Most significantly, customers and clients need so that you can effectively schedule your time and effort. Look for an additional booking features in almost any potential POS solution:

  • Fundamental appointment booking. Your POS should permit you to easily make appointments for clients and assign specific employees (or yourself) towards the appointment.
  • Repeat bookings. For those who have a customer who definitely are arriving for any massage every Thursday at 2 PM, you&#8217ll want so that you can schedule them accordingly without getting to by hand input the appointment each week.
  • Autonomous scheduling. A web-based booking system that shows prospective customers your exact availability and enables these to make autonomous appointments can effectively kill two wild birds with one stone it will save you some time and your customers get what they desire once they require it. Observe that despite the fact that clients have autonomy when creating appointments, you&#8217ll still be capable of modify, reschedule, or cancel appointments.
  • Separate worker calendars. For those who have several worker, multiple clients will come in simultaneously for various appointments. To be able to reduce confusion, consider using a POS that gives another calendar for every worker. In so doing, you can observe each worker&#8217s specific availability. This is helpful if your client really wants to see a particular worker.
  • Appointment increments. Some service-based software programs provide preset appointment increments. For instance, an appointments length could be set to fifteen, 30, or forty-five minutes. When the POS software you’re thinking about has incremental presets, make certain they harmonize together with your companies needs.

Appointment Reminders

With regards to the service industry, it is almost always necessary that your customers really appear to have an appointment. No show? No dough. Then when selecting a POS, you&#8217ll wish to think twice about the next features made to encourage punctual appointments:

  • Automatic appointment reminders. Determine when the POS system you’re thinking about transmits automatic appointment indication via SMS. In today&#8217s world, the fastest and mot efficient way to achieve someone is usually via a text. Automatic appointment reminders ought to be sent, not just to the customer under consideration, but for you and then any relevant employees too.
  • Lower payment requirement. Perhaps, the best way to make sure a customer turns up to have an appointment would be to first place their money. Determine when the POS system you’ve your skills on enables clients to pay for a lower payment (either full or partial) before a scheduled appointment can be created.
  • Future appointment reminders. Once you have provided something for any client, consider using a POS system that instantly prompts that client to plan a future appointment.

Customer History

A recognised repertoire with customers is important. Search for the following CRM features inside your potential POS system:

  • Fundamental data tracking. Make certain the customer&#8217s entire visit history is recorded and displayed. You&#8217ll would also like so that you can personalize your interactions with every customer whenever possible.

Top 4 POS Systems for Spas and Salons

POS systems for spas

There are plenty more reason for purchase systems (POS) currently available than there was once, especially because the creation of effective, compact new hardware alternatives such as the iPad. Consequently, taking payments and tracking sales, worker activity, and customer information having a POS is not only a privilege restricted to large retail chains and busy full-service restaurants. Today, almost anybody can engage in these more and more affordable software systems. Which goes for food truck operators, mall kiosk proprietors, and Ren-Fair vendors who sell chain mail from little booths, but it’s also true for individuals within the service industries. Hair dressers, beauticians, aestheticians, manicurists, massage therapists, and so on have particular needs that standard retailers and restaurateurs don’t share.

Service professionals need robust scheduling tools, for instance, and should communicate with their clients in an infinitely more personal way compared to average coffee shop or bike shop owner. Fortunately, POS companies have started to be more conscious of these unique needs, and most of them now provide features or add-ons which are particularly created for salons, spas, along with other service companies. Particularly, you will find three POS systems (and something scheduling system having a POS component) which have renedered particular efforts to support the service industry: Vend, SalesVu, Clover Small, and MindBody. Continue reading to learn about the high POS systems for spas and salons.

Vend

Vend is really a full-featured reason for purchase solution. Though it is almost always utilized in retail and/or restaurant environments, when along with Timely appointments, miracle traffic bot turns into a effective all-in-one tool that enables you to definitely manage your merchandise business, accept payments, and schedule appointments. Additionally, miracle traffic bot assists you to schedule the employees (or yourself), conserve a centralized inventory (this really is useful let’s say you sell hair products, nailpolishOradd-ons, massage tools, etc.), and collect data in your business legitimate-time reporting. It may work on a Mac or PC and works both offline and online. It works with most widely used POS hardware (click the link to determine what hardware may be used having a Vend POS system).

Vend is partnered with PayPal and MercuryPay, though for those who have a web-based store for reasons uknown, you are able to arrange it to process payments via Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.internet, or Payment Express. Learn more about payment processing with Vend here.

When it comes to cost, Vend provides you with the choice to register having a fundamental free plan, though this plan of action isn&#8217t functional enough for many companies. Premium plans vary from $59/month for small locations to $169/month for companies with multiple locations. With any plan, each additional register is $39/month, and you may purchase priority phone support for an additional $19/month. Integration with Timely appointments software starts at $19/month. Vend isn&#8217t the least expensive solution around, and every one of individuals extra monthly charges can also add up, but you absolutely get lots of features for the money.

The Timely integration is exactly what really makes Vend a great fit for service companies. This impressive application are designed for one-time bookings and repeat bookings, in addition to cope with multiple products and services. It may also assist with invoicing an internet-based payments. On top of that, you are able to really pull-up sales in Vend from your Timely appointment calendar (no switching between apps is needed). Any products you need to sell can be included to the appointment payment, though you may make one-off sales too.

Timely is cloud-based software, just like Vend

One really exciting factor about Vend is it enables you to definitely personalize your receipts, and/or add notes to allow customer learn about &#8220care instructions, discount rates, or any other targeted offers.&#8221 You may also generate receipt templates for special occasions, or receipts that demonstrate in different languages. Additionally you can email or print receipts after each purchase.

Read our overview of Vend for more information concerning the software and how it operates.

SalesVu

SalesVu is really a standard POS provider which offers beauty and wellness management features. Miracle traffic bot can perform everything you&#8217d expect from the typical reason for purchase &#8211 it may gather and store information, run analyses, collect customer data, and manage employees, inventory and much more. It provides an intuitive online appointment management and scheduling system to help you make and organize appointments for purchasers.

SalesVu enables clients to determine what time slots available for you, and then suggest their very own bookings online or over the telephone. Don&#8217t worry, though &#8211 you&#8217ll be notified whenever a new appointment is created. And if you wish to safeguard your company, you are able to need a non-refundable deposit whenever a customer bakes an online reservation.

To prevent no-shows or forgotten appointments, SalesVu helps to ensure that your clients receive automatic appointment reminders. In addition, both you and your employees may also be instantly advised of appointments, and may consult the calendar anytime to edit appointments or see what&#8217s available on a day.

The POS itself costs $25/month, which is another $25/month to include the Appointment Management and Scheduling application. Get more information at additional information about prices, or you&#8217re wondering the other apps can be found.

SalesVu is partnered with Mercury Payments and Century (WorldPay) Payments while offering customers a totally free card readers, plus some of &#8220the best charge card processing rates in the market.&#8221 It&#8217s worth noting that you can’t really use SalesVu service unless of course are applying and therefore are approved for any Mercury Payment Systems or WorldPay merchant account. This is a little a discomfort, I understand, but fortunately both processors offer to complement (or beat) your present rates.

SalesVu doesn’t sell hardware directly, however they do recommend compatible hardware. Should you&#8217re interested, a complete listing of compatible hardware and accessories are available on this link.

For any larger picture of methods miracle traffic bot works and just what it may provide for your company, check out our overview of SalesVu.

Clover Small

Like its counterparts, Clover Station and Clover Mobile, Clover Small is definitely an unusual POS system, basically made to replace standard, old-fashioned POS terminals and supply support for advanced payments interfaces, like Apple Pay. Clover Small may be used only to take payments it accepts almost all payment types. However, when coupled with tools from Clover’s comprehensive application market, the Clover Small can pack a effective punch and function an entire POS and booking solution for the salon or health spa. The hardware is compact enough to suit easily into the tiniest establishment, and it is cheaper overall than traditional POS services like Vend or SalesVu.

Clover Small is different from SalesVu and Vend differently too: it is usually offered along with a free account (presently, you can purchase Clover Small through over 3,000 major banks in america, including Citibank, SunTrust, and Wells Fargo, or from small company suppliers like Sam’s Club, Restaurant Depot). The particular hardware has a tendency to retail for approximately $200-$400, based on in which you buy, but charge card processing rates and swipe charges change from area to area, and may vary from .30% + 5¢ to two.5% + 15¢ or greater, with respect to the bank &#8211 some credit card merchant account providers may really offer flat-rate processing charges. Generally, the speed you obtain will most likely depend a great deal by yourself credit score and also the product sales of the business.

Like I pointed out above, Clover Small itself cannot handle booking and scheduling, but it may be integrated nicely with two apps that really work inside a health spa or salon atmosphere: Salon Scheduler, by AppHeaven, or Appointments Pro, by Seven Spaces. Both applications provide a free trial offer. Keep in mind, however, that regrettably, you can’t check out the particular Clover Small before choosing. Therefore it may have previously needed to invest in Clover in the point you’d be testing the appointment scheduling software.

For $14.99/month, Salon Scheduler provides you with the opportunity to have a history note journal for every customer, scan and examine a person&#8217s entire visit history, link multiple appointments for the similar customer, specify default service groups, choose service occasions for every worker, instantly send SMS Text reminders for approaching appointments, and receive SMS Text responses out of your customers on your appointment block. Each worker is offered their very own calendar which to schedule clients.

Appointments Pro applies to either $9.99/month (for that fundamental plan) or $14.99/month (for that advanced plan). It integrates fully with Google Calendar, and enables you to definitely manage multiple worker calendars (with various availability for every worker), setup appointments in 15, 30, 45, or 1 hour increments, distribute SMS appointment reminders, and manage customer contact details and appointment histories.

It&#8217s remember this that Clover Small &#8211 in the standard form &#8211 is essentially only a blank slate, something will process payments. But there are a variety of various apps readily available for the unit (most of them free) that may give support on everything from managing inventory to tracking worker labor, recording and analyzing data, and so forth. Essentially, with the aid of add-ons and applications, Clover Small can perform whatever you really need it to complete.

Should you&#8217d like to obtain a better picture of methods miracle traffic bot operates, read our full overview of Clover Small.

MindBody

Unlike the program systems pointed out above, MindBody wasn’t designed mainly like a POS solution. Rather, this excellent software was produced specifically for spas, salons, gyms, along with other companies within the beauty and health industry. It’s basically a higher functioning booking tool which ends up having a POS component.

MindBody enables clients to reserve their very own appointments online (though you’ve still got capacity to add appointments and modify, reschedule, or cancel appointments at the discretion). Clients receive automatic reminders for scheduled visits, and therefore are even instantly motivated to reserve future appointments too.

Every client is offered their very own profile, where one can collect contact details, record the individual&#8217s birthday (for targeted coupons or promotions), and keep an eye on payment and visit histories. What&#8217s more, MindBody enables you to definitely target new customers with special promotions and gift certificates. If you would like, you can begin a loyalty program too. A great method to attract new clients and your present customers engaged.

You will find five different subscription plans available, varying from $45/month (for solo practitioners or small establishments) to some whopping $225/month. It&#8217s and not the least expensive solution around, but MindBody&#8217s special focus on service industries makes miracle traffic bot worth the investment, for me.

MindBody itself offers payment processing to customers (with the aid of preferred payment processing partners), and allows you to accept all major charge cards. Processing options and rates vary based on your location. MindBody also sells hardware that enables you to definitely &#8220link your front desk directly&#8230with reason for purchase hardware bundles and individual hardware pieces.&#8221 Get more information at more details about MindBody&#8217s hardware packages.

Final Ideas on POS Systems for Spas

Managing a service business isn&#8217t easy &#8211 there’ll always be cranky customers, cancelled bookings, and missed appointments &#8211 however it doesn&#8217t need to be as hard as it was once. Should you&#8217re counting on united nations-synced payment processors, inventory trackers, and booking tools, then you definitely&#8217re doing a problem.
