Don`t lose heart - a booking system solves your crisis!
This message was added Tuesday 19th October 2021
A lot of businesses have complained about staff shortages and this is not just truck drivers that work for BP.... many businesses are now struggling to recruit the right calibre of people. Hairdressers report staffing problems, partly because apprentices haven`t done their courses, or people who have moved on to different careers during the various Lockdowns.
If you are finding it hard to recruit the right choice of staff, or you are struggling in business in any way, it always helps to think Smart in many cases. With new technology, you can actually handle different aspects of the business in a more creative way - by using booking systems to solve your staffing crisis and solve administration problems in one!
For example, hairdressers usually need someone to answer the phone, breaking off from what they are doing, whether it`s cutting hair or right in the middle of doing bleach foils, and this can be awkward. If they are understaffed, practically all businesses can benefit from the effect of the booking system automatically fielding calls for them. Fewer phone calls to just discuss available appointments is a big help. Especially if missing calls can mean missed appointments. Hairdressers, plumbers, driving instructors, home tutors, all can benefit from a booking system personally designed for their business.
A booking system might cost a little each month, but if it helps you work `smarter` and save time on interruptions, calls and writing notes, then it can have a positive effect on your business.
