Exploring the iOffice Store Sync: Part One

SuperSalon and iOffice users have a powerful tool at their disposal which helps them keep things like products, permission settings and promotional discounts in sync between multiple locations. This tool is the Store Sync feature and it’s available to users of our iOffice cloud management and back office system. This article will give you a quick overview of this feature as well as a description of each item that can be synchronized by using it.

The Store Sync feature has its own tab in iOffice and, when users first enter the interface, they are shown a list of all the possible business elements that can be synchronized across several locations.

    All discounts, their restrictions and any other stipulations.

    This synchronizes SMS messaging settings and content across multiple locations.

    Both active and inactive promotional gift vouchers for one location can be synchronized across multiple locations.
  • Auto Discount
    This synchronizes automatic discount settings, and their display settings, across multiple locations.

    For salons that use a unified system of till accounting, account codes can be synchronized through all locations.
