The only international appointment book

If you have a multicultural client base, or even clients who come from different countries, then You'reOnTime is the only web based salon software that can fit your needs.

We have the ability to automatically send out reminder emails or SMS message in multiple languages based on the language of the client. Not only that, we can send SMS to any country, not just where you are located.

It's all part of the You'reOnTime advantage.

Easy reminder management helps reduce no shows

Occasionally when coming into the salon the client will mention that they didn't receive a SMS reminder message. SMS reminders are essential to your business reducing no shows and cancellations so if you have them enabled it can be disconcerting to hear that comment. In fact, it is one of the most common support questions we get. The Unsent SMS Reminders button on appointments comes to the rescue.

Unsent SMS Reminders

Clicking this button will show you a screen with the exact reason the client didn't receive a SMS. The most common reasons are simple once you see them, the client has opted out of receiving messages or they don't have a phone number entered. Other reasons might be an incorrect phone number causing the message to bounce and not be delivered.

It's all to easy with You'reOnTime.


Using the standby list for better client retention

If you have a busy salon that is great for business, but it inevitably means some people won't be able to make an appointment when they want to. That is when the standby list comes to the rescue. Rather than telling the client to try again in a few weeks, or booking them a long way in advance, or keeping a hard to manage paper list, the standby list will allow you to take their details, preferred time frame and staff right alongside the appointment book.


Once on the standby list if someone cancels in the preferred time frame you can create a new appointment directly from the standby list with the staff, service and client all loaded straight into the appointment. It is so easy to use and the clients will love it when you call to let them know a spot has opened up.

Once again, You'reOnTime has your back in running a better business. Sign up now for your free 30 day trial.


Finally a paperless salon with electronic check in forms

Anyone who has been to a salon, doctor or therapist will know the routine, walk in the door and be handed a clipboard with details to fill out. You'reOnTime has finally answered with electronic check in forms that can be filled out by clients on an iPad and then linked directly to their client record. Features include

  • You will be prompted to give a form to the client when they arrive
  • Forms can be general or specific to a service
  • Forms can be emailed to clients to fill out before arrival
  • Electronic signatures for permissions or waivers
  • Linked directly to the clients record for future reference
  • Any number of your own questions can be added to be filled out

Features like this are showing why You'reOnTime truly is the only complete solution.
