It’s 10:30 on a Tuesday morning and the phone hasn’t rung. Not once. Most of the chairs are empty and the first booked appointment isn’t until 11am… Or perhaps the phone won’t stop ringing. And with the team rushed off its feet, all the calls are going to voicemail. Clients aren’t showing up because they simply can’t get through… If either of these scenarios sound all too familiar, you need Slick; a new smartphone app that matches customers to your services in real time.
“Whether you’re looking to attract new clients, advertise empty slots, or create a seamless booking experience for your existing customers, Slick is for you,” said Slick’s Chief Marketing Officer Jyselle Des-Forges. “With around the clock bookings and a simple online payment system, your customers can easily see your salon’s availability and make an appointment for a time that suits them and you. They can also use the app to notify you of any last-minute cancellations, ensuring your business can keep running at capacity.
“What’s more, the app’s search function means that customers can easily find your salon based on either their location or the services they require. This opens your business up to being discovered by customers who may never find you otherwise.”

There’s also another reason for salons to list on Slick. It’s free! There are no fees or contracts; Slick just takes a small 10% fee for every booking made through the app. Salons which join Slick also get access to a free version of salon management system, Simple Salon.
“We’ve partnered with leading software provider Simple Salon to make a free version of this software available for our Slick community,” explained Mrs Des-Forges. “This software is trusted by salons throughout the world to manage diaries and streamline appointments, and it’s now fully integrated with the Slick application.
“Thousands of customers Australia-wide are already using Slick to make their salon appointments. Sign up your business today and the next appointment booked could be yours!”
Slick is available for customers to download on either the Apple app store or Google Play, making it accessible for both iOS and android users.
