SalonTechnologies has partnered with Apple to introduce its popular Personal Salon Assistant (PSA) software as a downloadable iPhone application. Available in multiple languages, PSA for iPhone offers the same features as the original, including the patented Hair Color Formulating Software—which offers a database of more than 70,000 haircolor formulas, step-by-step instructions and the ability to store and retrieve stylists' own formulas—along with many new capabilities. The iPhone allows stylists to put callers on speakerphone and book appointments in real time; e-mail clients with appointment reminders, receipts and birthday wishes; send mass e-mails about sales and specials; send reports to a home computer for printing; import and export client information; take and store before-and-after photos for clients; and set up standing appointments. SalonTechnologies also offers the PSA preloaded on an iPod Touch and will be releasing an option for Verizon users soon. salontechnologies.com —L.M.
