    Love the program, but there’s room for improvement

    Reviewed on 2022/06/30

    Pros

    Most things work well, just small adjustments to improve the software overall

    Cons

    Multiple client accounts not being merged even when the information is exactly the same. Which doesn’t allow accurate history tracking. DaySmart allowed payroll and online booking and ideally did work on Instagram but does not if you need it on multiple accounts. We can’t offer a booking button on Instagram for multiple team members

    It's hit and miss
    Sometimes the programs features are wonderful
    Sometimes they don't work at all in Canada or on the app

    Pros

    Online booking
    Till count
    Slow appointment time texts
    Appointment keeping and the function to be able to set times to each stylist.
    It keeps records

    Cons

    Alot of the features are not made for Canada.
    The quick books option
    The pricing of the program in general
    I'm am unable to use the system for clients to leave a deposit via cc.
    Salon booth renters are unable to keep their own till count.
    Alot of the features don't work on the app and only the computer and in this day and age everyone runs from a cell phone

    Operation system for a wax studio

    Reviewed on 2022/06/30

    Pros

    Online booking is so helpful. The software is very user friendly and customer service is always very responsive and helpful.

    Cons

    As I've mentioned offering clients to reschedule an appt on their own online is a big deal for me and many other operating systems offer this. I'm sure hoping this will be an option coming up. Also I keep a very busy schedule and it would be great if clients through the online booking could add themselves to a constant wait-list. I also wish I could add on intake forms for an extra monthly fee of like 10$. Im paying the second tier price for my subscription but only use the intake form feature. This makes my payment an extra 30$ a month for only one added feature. It would also be great if Daysmart had an option for an automatic link to be sent for a client to leave a review.

    Some of the reports are false can’t use them and the information is key to growing my business

    Pros

    The ease of making reservations and text messaging has become more versatile. .............................

    Cons

    There are reports that are false and give me misinformation that I desperately need. for instance the rebook report counts the services not the tickets. We have stylists who’s changes are based on their level. We have to go in to each service and change their service charges.
