Phorest Salon Software and Luxury Brand Partners, parent company to Oribe Hair Care, R+Co, V76 by Vaughn, Smith & Cult and IGK, announced a new partnership. Phorest, a powerful system designed to assist with day-to-day business, grow service and keep customers happy, is now LBP’s exclusive software partner.
Luxury Brand Partners and Phorest share the same core value system, which hinges on helping salons grow and improving business. Servicing more than 3,600 customers in Europe, Phorest has proven to grow in-salon retail by 31 percent through advanced built-in components of software technology. Through combined efforts, the alliance will help salons look to the future as the salon business transitions over the next three to five years.
“We are so excited to help introduce Phorest to U.S. salons,” said Tev Finger, CEO of Luxury Brand Partners. “Phorest helps salons grow with their ingenious marketing tools, save by eliminating pricy add-ons with other softwares and move forward with the most technologically advanced payment platforms. It’s no wonder they are a top-seller in Europe.”
“Phorest is the number one software for premium salons, which is why we are so excited to partner with Luxury Brand Partners,” said Ronan Perceval, CEO of Phorest Salon Software. “Just like LBP, Phorest Salon Software is incredibly passionate about the beauty industry, in particular about helping salon owners and entrepreneurs grow fantastic businesses. We have the best tools to help salons get their clients in more often, and we can't wait to share them with salon owners in the U.S.”
“The LBP-Phorest partnership allows salons to accept fully integrated payments anywhere in the salon through lightning-fast wireless connection,” said DJ Lewin, LBP Credit Services. “We were influenced by the feedback from LBP partner salons looking to improve and speed up the checkout process for their clients. Phorest allows salons to take payments through credit card tap, swipe or even through Apple Pay or Android Pay. The payments system with Phorest is by far the most advanced in the salon industry.”
Phorest will be holding its annual tech conference, Phorest Salon Owners Summit, in Dublin on Monday, January 8. The sold out event will feature guest speakers from both the salon and tech worlds who will be speaking about current and future industry growth. There are 1,500 salon owners and stylists from around the world expected to attend.
