TOP RATING - 5 STARS

"Overall, this system was very easy to use. It had credit card processing built-in so we didn't have to buy or lease a credit card machine. It had an in-depth email marketing system built-in along with an inventory and purchase order module. There was also an option to purchase a Payroll, General ledger, Accounts Payable and Bank Reconciliation module so the system can grow as your needs change. So as our stylists provides services, the system keeps track of those tips and commissions and I can cut a check for those automatically. The booth rental tracking, formula definition and tips/commission processing is the most flexible we've seen. The technical support was excellent and they installed the whole enchillada using an internet connection."
