My name is Sheetal Purandare and I opened up a Unisex Salon “Perfect Looks” (www.facebook.com/PerfectLooksGandhinagar) just a month and half ago in Gandhinagar, India. I stumbled into this as my background is actually in Human Resources and Management. I was lucky to partner-up with an expert and someone who is well-known in local community.
Could you describe a bit about your local community?
My business is located in a newly developed area which is in the centre of Information Technology offices and with-in 3 KM radius of 5 professional colleges. This has given us a ready-made target clientele.
How did you find Loyverse POS and why would you recommend Loyverse POS to other retailers like you?
We opened our salon within 10 days of taking the decision to invest in the business, I needed a POS for salon (बिक्री केन्द्र) which was no fuss but suit my requirement. We stumbled upon Loyverse through internet search and really liked how it was so easy to use without fuss and minimal set-up. It has proven to be a boom for all front end activities such as sales, understanding best-selling services, sales per employees. We are still looking at how can we maximise Loyverse for our back office needs such as inventory management and cost per sales. But that is more because we’ve been so busy with just providing best service to our customers.
What is the goal for your business and what are your plans to achieve this goal?
We’ve started out with a two cabins and two chairs but I’m confident in the next 6 months, we’ll double our operations.
Do you have any advice for retailers such as yourself? -E.g. Something that you wish you had known earlier.
The only advice I can think is the tag line of Nike – “Just Do It”. If I would waited for all the elements to fall in place, I’d still be in planning stages rather than running a business. Don’t be afraid to take risks, I did and it is paying off!!!
