SalonLite by Premier Software, the UK’s first free cloud-based salon software for the hair and beauty industry, will hit new heights this new year with a fresh look and a whole host of additional functions.

Ideal for busy salon owners on the go, SalonLite helps to keep a business owner’s feet firmly on the ground, whilst keeping its business in the cloud for easy access. Re-launched just 12 months ago, SalonLite has celebrated its first birthday with a whole new makeover, as well as adding to its software capabilities.

In addition to scheduling, reporting and SMS functionality, SalonLite users will now be able to record patch test results against a client, book over-lapping appointments, drag and drop any bookings and operate a ‘context menu’ for quick access to functions.

SalonLite’s stylish new user-interface makes sure users can navigate the diary and set-up clients or staff with minimal effort. The refreshed colour scheme makes it clear when clients are due to arrive and once they have departed. Most useful of all, this interface is mobile-friendly, making it optimised for handheld use.

Oliver Cahill, chief commercial officer at Premier Software, confirms the ‘capabilities of SalonLite are endless’ and new functions will be added over the course of the next few months. He said: “SalonLite is fast becoming the software system of choice for many hair and beauty salon owners due to its simplicity and ease of use.

“A fully optimised cloud-based software solution, it is built with the latest technologies to provide a secure operating system that is versatile and available through any mobile device. Following its re-launch last year, sales have continued to grow and with it the demand for more functions to meet the needs of the industry. The new functions are just a few currently available, with more in the pipeline over the coming months.”
