Navigating the Cost-of-Living Crisis: How Beu is helping salons boost their profits by 20%

Picture this: the UK is knee-deep in a crazy cost-of-living conundrum. It’s like trying to juggle a dozen watermelons while riding a unicycle! And guess who’s caught in the whirlwind? Yep, you got it – small businesses, including our beloved hair, beauty, and barbering champs. But hold up, because right now, in the eye of this storm, there’s a chance. A chance for these fearless folks to show their innovation muscles, trim those pesky costs, supercharge efficiency, and strut out of this economic maze not just unscathed, but with a chest bump and a victory dance!

Say hello to Beu, your salon’s newfound secret weapon. It’s like having a trusty sidekick by your side, handling the nitty-gritty while you work your magic. With Beu’s salon software, your appointments become seamless, managing staff becomes a breeze and salons with self-employed staff could see a 20% increase in their profits with Beu Pay.

Beu Pay

Unlike other salon software, Beu splits payment at the point of sale. When a self-employed staff member processes a payment, the commission is automatically divided and sent directly to the relevant parties. Not only does this eliminate confusion, reduce admin costs, and ensure that the right people are paid the right amounts promptly, it also means that salon owners are not having to process the revenue earned by self-employed staff as their own. For many salons, this is the difference between having to register for VAT and not.

For businesses with employed & self-employed staff

Beu allows salons and barbershops to manage both employed and self-employed staff seamlessly through one system. This not only saves precious time but also slashes the costs that usually come with juggling different management platforms.

Upgrade your point-of-sale

Beu comes locked and loaded with a slick point-of-sale system that’s got your back: think wallet-friendly transaction fees, the power to handle deposits, and seamless tip handling with automatic staff pay. And that’s not all – Beu’s got your growth covered too, offering revenue analytics that are like rocket fuel for your business aspirations.

Online booking and appointment management

Using your personalized Beu link, clients can effortlessly book appointments, and the sophisticated diary system ensures you stay organised and on point with your business operations.

No-show protection and SMS Reminders 

Take deposits upfront, and send SMS and email reminders to cut down on no-shows, protecting your business from loss of revenue.

Open new revenue streams by selling products

Unlock a fresh avenue for revenue by diving into the world of product sales. Thanks to Beu, you can seamlessly market and sell your products right through the platform. What’s even better? You have the power to set enticing commissions for your staff, giving them the nudge to champion those sales. And here’s the cherry on top: these commissions are a no-brainer to manage, as they are tracked and paid across to staff members automatically.

Client Management 

Your client book should be more than a list of names. Beu automatically tracks their booking history with you, and allows you to add custom notes. This can be anything from their favourite colour formula to their pet Cocker Spaniel’s name, helping you make every client feel special.
