Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
Shortly after launching Firefly, one of the most advanced point-of-sale systems available for the salon and spa industry, leading U.S. technology company TouchSuite is back to reveal the latest social media integration capability on the Firefly system. For the first time ever, business owners using this salon POS software will be able to manage their salon’s key social media channels directly through the main system or mobile device, eliminating the need to visit each site separately on their PC or laptop. With fully-enabled use of hashtags and @ symbols for posting and commenting, Firefly’s social feature allows for full capabilities in Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
“The most impactful and cost-effective marketing tactic for folks in the salon and spa industry is one that demonstrates the results of their styling techniques to a wide-range of potential clients, which is why social media can be one of their greatest promotional assets,” said TouchSuite CEO Sam Zietz. “Since daily operations and client relations are priority, we created a solution that is easy and effortless, and allows them to promote their talents without compromising time spent on their core business.”
“For the past several years, salon owners and stylists have been taking photos of their clients to promote their work, then posting those photos to the salon’s respective social media accounts,” said TouchSuite Chief Products and Marketing Officer, Farshad Tafazolli. “With the launch of Firefly’s social media module, we are simply extending the same social media capabilities to the salon’s point-of-sale system so that any photos taken can easily be organized on Firefly and concurrently posted to the salon’s Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest accounts.’
Social media integration is also a great advantage for salon stylists who use images of their style creations to promote themselves and the salon. Any pictures taken can be posted into the desired social channels for posting. Currently, this aspect of the technology is available for Android™-based tablets, with phone functionality slated in the coming year. Additional social media channels may be added as they become relevant to the salon industry.
As an Android-based system with an easy-to-use application, TouchSuite Firefly provides business owners with a solution that runs at a speed that delivers unprecedented performance of its average competitor. The salon POS system is customized primarily to support salon and spa owners who require a business solution that allows their team to easily execute client transactions from anywhere within the salon and allow them to run their business beyond salon walls. Future applications of Firefly will be tailored for other customer-service focused and hospitality businesses, including retail establishments.
