When it comes to tattooing, delivering all-around quality is a must. Between booking customers, following up, buying supplies and building you customer base, there are many reasons artists and shops operate less efficiently than they could or should. Read on to discover how a tattoo artist appointment scheduling software can help in relation to saving money, time and resources and minimizing the risk of human error.
When a good tattoo artist appointment scheduling software is utilized appropriately, there is no better way to book customers; it gives them the ability to book themselves through your existing website. With the click of a button, they are able to see artists’ current, real-time availability, choose their own appointment time and be updated along the way.
Once they are booked, calendars across all platforms are updated, and everything can be synced with third-party calendars such as Google, Microsoft Exchange, Apple, Office 365 and Outlook. This not only eliminates the risk of over- or double-booking one or more artists, it also results in fewer no-show appointments and eliminates the risk of artists or staff incorrectly entering information.
The ability to send automated, personalized reminders and notifications is extremely handy as well. If someone is running ahead of or behind schedule, GigaBook’s tattoo artist appointment scheduling software will send email and/or text notifications to clients and staff updating them on the status along the way. If an artist has a recurring meeting or travel destination, reminders are sent throughout the duration of the standing appointment. This leads to better overall communication among staff and higher satisfaction among clients.
As anyone with a basic understanding of business knows, people have to get paid for their time, expertise and final delivery, right? Well, GigaBook’s tattoo artist appointment scheduling software allows clients to either pay for their session ahead of time or once a session is completed. Instead of sitting down, parsing through costs and compiling all relevant data, why not automate that process? GigaBook integrates with Stripe, PayPal, Braintree and Authorize.net, which means your website turns from static to transactional and allows you to miss fewer opportunities. From the beginning of a session, invoices can be created and monitored along the way, getting updated as things progress. If need be, they can be sent to clients and continue to be tracked and logged.
