With summer rapidly approaching, many salons are looking to increase their revenues in an effort to reach mid-year goals. An excellent way to do this is to bundle both services and products together in a package which will serve as a great value for your clients and a great way to increase your own profit margin.
Working with tens of thousands of salons over the years, we have seen a great many combinations and possibilities when it comes to package deals. SuperSalon’s ability to create and track these packages are second to none and can offer you the following benefits:
If you sell multiple services under one service item such as “Haircut, Shampoo & Color” you can only select one service category. This causes inaccurate reporting as all three services will be reported as one service under one category. When using packages each item is counted, categorized correctly and reported correctly.
If you sell multiple services under one service item such as “Haircut, Shampoo & Color” the system does not know how to report dollar sales or discounts assigned to that item. It cannot allocate sales dollars or discounts among the component services. When using packages, pricing and discounts are proportionately allocated among the items. This means correct reporting on sales and discounts for each service item.
Proportionate Pricing & Discounting
If you sell multiple services under one service item such as “Haircut, Shampoo & Color” the system does not know how to price each individual item. And, if you add a discount, it will not know how to allocate the discount to the component items. When using packages, pricing and discounts are allocated proportionately to the original cost of each component.
Creating a new package deal is quite simple and doesn’t require any additional training in the POS. Simply going into the Manager tab and clicking the “Packages” button will take you into the correct interface, which mirrors many of SuperSalon’s other sub menus. Any package deals that are created in the sub-menu will then appear in the first step of the checkout screen under “Packages” in the main radial menu.
