Colour Profit Potential

Five years of research, involving thousands of stylists using Vish to mix their formulas has steered a complete update of the ground-breaking technology. This October, an all-new Vish, rich with enhanced features, but still super easy to use, will go live on both the iTunes and Google Play stores.

Vish launched on the iOS platform in April 2018, sparking a radical new approach to salon colour management. Built with the stylist and business owner in mind, it filled a vital gap in salon management, allowing real-time oversight of services delivered – and their level of profitability – for the first time. In 2022, Vish enabled salons to capture nearly £2 million in additional revenue that was previously unseen and missed.

“Working closely with stylists who have used Vish to mix millions of formulas since 2018, we’ve updated our system to include a new, streamlined look, making it easier than ever to mix quickly and effectively track every service,” said Tom Bentley-Taylor, Managing Director EMEA of Vish.

As part of the release, stylists can now utilise the new Plan Ahead™ feature, allowing log in on their mobile and to look ahead at their day’s appointments, saving formulas while they have focused time or during the consultation. “The Plan Ahead feature gives so much flexibility to the stylist,” explained Tom, “stylists save the formula at their leisure and so can feel confident that if they ask their assistant to mix, it’s already loaded precisely as they prescribed.”

The Vish Colour Bar update is now compatible on all devices, offering salons flexibility in how the team wants to work and how the owner plans to design their colour bar.

“We listened to our users. The Vish they know and love still exists, but it is even more focused on making their day-to-day experience seamless and efficient,” said Tom.

Since 2018, Vish has grown exponentially, and the new version of the system promises to propel salons even further towards their goals and support the industry. It will continue helping stylists stamp out over-dispensing while taking all the hassle out of manual record-keeping.

“The origins of Vish lie in our vision to completely eliminate colour waste, and this new update is going to open up a lot of new opportunities for our clients and the greater industry,” added Tom. “In the past five years, we’ve been able to help salons make a huge impact on their profitability; this new version will allow us to release new features at rapid-fire to continue to grow our industry.”

The average salon could increase its profitability by £10,564 per year if waste was eliminated.

Further enhancements are in the pipeline, due for release towards the end of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024. Meanwhile, stylists and salons will reap the benefits of a quicker, cleaner, and more responsive technology that puts all the control in their hands.
