How do you all track your sales and all other records for the year?
i keep my books, by hand, had it on the computer once and it crashed with no backup..shame on me.. i total my sales daily in my appt book and transfer it over to my accounting paper. total that montly then quarterly and so on. keep up with all my purchases and bills as well monthly. then give the end numbers to my accountant


I use Quicken. You can get a d/l version. Not very expensive but can do everything you need.
I created a book to keep track of everything. Appointments, income, expenses, etc. I have a few people doing a trial run with it for the year and I hope to market it when it's finalized.
I have an app on my Iphone that I keep my appointments on. It tracks the service income, retail income and tips and then I download it to an excel spreadsheet.

The app is "Nails" by Salon Technologies.
Thanks for the responses Big Grin

I was also going to mention Colleen's book. I was eager to try it since I'm horrible about keeping records. I ended up quitting work before we moved to Texas but I'll tell you what...that thing was great when I was working. Having something so easy to use was wonderful. It's very self-explanatory and I definitely recommend it. Thanks again, Colleen!
Thanks Michele. Im glad it worked out for you and I hope you get to use it in the future. Are you looking to be working in a new salon?
Colleen can I get one or buy one off you? My email is [email protected] Thanks
