Beauty Salon is a system to be designed to manage the booking and the payment of a single beauty parlour.
Beauty Therapists: A beauty parlour has a number of staff members most of which are beauty therapists. Some beauty therapists are well-established professionals while others may just be the trainees. Different thereapists may also have different availability for work. For instance, some may not work on Saturdays while others might be on leave for a few weeks.
Beauty Care and Treatments: There are a number of beauty treatments or services a therapist can undertake, including manicure, pedicure, waxing, threading, facials and massages, to name a few. Different therapists may be able to provide different ranges of specific services, depending on the actual individuals. Some (item-based) services such as waxing will be charged per item while others (time-based) such as massage will be charged per half an hour or per hour. The fees for item-based services are fixed across all the therapists. But the fees for time-based services may vary among the therapists due to their different level of expertise.
Treatment Venues: When a booking is being made, it is possible to agree on a specific venue to conduct the services. Such venues could be other similar parlours or shops at which a particular beauty therapist also works.
Clients: Each regular client or patron will typically have her own client record set up on the system, and this will allow her to easily make a booking or make a payment. However, a non-regular customer will also be able to turn up in the beauty parlour and request a service to be done to her. Such customers don't have to create their client profiles and can still receive the services when they just turn up in the parlour, provided there are suitable therapists available at the parlour at the time.
Payments: The payment for the services of each booking or appointment will also be recorded. The payment can be made in cash, or via a credit card. The payment details will be recorded accordingly.
Business Activities: For the typical business activities, the Beauty Salon system will allow one to view which appointments have been made on any given day for any particular therapist, list all the available therapists for a given period of time, browse all the payments for a given day, and many more.
