Integrity Payment Systems, a nationwide credit card processing company, made a major move recently to provide small business owners greater value by expanding their range of products and services to include not only payment systems, but also cash management tools and business solutions. Today one of those tools, Integrity VirtualPartner™, has been endorsed by The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) and is being used to prepare their students, some whom will be our future salon owners, to get off on the right foot as far as income and expense is concerned.
Guy Wadas, Integrity’s VP of Sales said, “VirtualPartner is a tool created by Integrity specifically for the salon industry. It helps salon owners recover lost income and find operation savings in order to maximize the profit in their salon. The software serves as a partner, in a sense, for both the salon owner and the service provider. A great benefit to the TSPA students is that the software can show them the real world relationship between income and expenses, and help them get off on the right foot.”
Guy explained that Integrity VirtualPartner™ provides very simple visual aids to help salon owners recover the personal income they deserve from their own work behind the chair, as this money is often going toward the expenses in their salon instead of in their own pocket where it belongs. Integrity VirtualPartner™ also finds operational savings, walking salon owners through simple step by step adjustments that will make their business profitable. Service providers even have their own private login giving them access to their personal income and life expense calculator, for the first time measuring their everyday performance against their actual life expenses. Service providers learn quickly the importance of what they contribute everyday in the salon. From how many guests they need every hour and every day, to the importance of pre-booking, with Integrity VirtualPartner™ they clearly see how each action they make in the salon contributes to their own life, financially.
Owners, managers, instructors and students at a number of The Salon Professional Academies are beginning to use Integrity VirtualPartner™as a wonderful teaching/learning tool, and the feedback has been excellent. Integrity Payment Systems is now hosting Webinars to facilitate the introduction to Integrity VirtualPartner™as well as training for school owners, managers, and instructors on how to use the system and how their students will use it to understand and develop real world business skills. Both Integrity VirtualPartner™and the Webinars are free of charge to customers of Integrity.
Integrity Payment Systems is the only credit card processor endorsed by salon product manufacturers such as Redken, Pureology, Matrix, L’Oreal Professional (all of the L’Oreal USA PPD Professional Product Division Companies) and SalonCentric, one of the world’s largest salon product distributors.
