Phorest has officially launched the highly anticipated online Gift Voucher feature to all its clients across the UK and Ireland. Available directly in the software, the Gift Voucher feature can be switched on at a click of a button. Better yet, clients can smart link their gift voucher purchase link directly into their email and SMS templates from within the Phorest marketing suite, making promoting their salon’s brand new Voucher offering to their customers quick and easy.

Initially launched in the US, the Gift Voucher feature has proven a huge success for Phorest clients. One salon owner with a team of 11 took the simple steps to turn on and promote their vouchers and has had amazing success already. In fact, she got in touch to tell us: “We’ve sold $15K in gift cards online in four days, in the middle of the Coronavirus shutdown.”

Ronan Perceval, CEO of Phorest Salon Software commented ‘The launch of online gift vouchers had already been on our roadmap, but with the current crisis we have worked around the clock to bring this forward and give our clients the opportunity to continue to generate revenue and engage with their customers, even if the doors to their salon are temporarily closed’. 

Phorest understands that this is a stressful and worrying time for salon owners and the aim is to continue to help and support where possible. Introducing online Gift Vouchers to salons is the perfect way for salon owners to continue generating revenue during the COVID-19 crisis. It’s a great tool to get clients to pledge their future appointment spend to the business today because let’s face it; people will be running to the hair and beauty salon as soon as all of this is over!
