Preparing for the silly season with Shortcuts

2020 – what a year, right? With restrictions now easing in Victoria (happy dance for face-mask free treatments!) and the rest of Australia and New Zealand gearing up for the holidays, word on the street from our clients is that “every week is a Christmas week from now until the new year”. What that means for businesses is a chock-a-block appointment book, constantly crowded front desks and a roster that looks like a who’s-who of your team zoo – everyone on, all the time.

Cut the queues with Cardless Checkout

Cardless checkout is the new, Uber-style way of paying for an appointment. And she’s fancy. You know the convenience of catching an Uber?

The answer – it shouldn’t!
