Who We Were Then
The SCI team builds software for salons and spas that grows revenue, improves daily operations and improves client relations.
We partnered with salons to discover our future in the Beauty and Wellness industry. Complex processes make up every salon or spa business personality. We listened and held client’s hands when computers were just getting started in the salon industry in 1986. Happily we were matched with well known high end salons that had a great need.
In 2005 we made the decision to write for the web for future releases. Pioneering another first, SCI knew the Cloud wouldn’t be a fad but a standard and Wow! The Cloud has taken over almost every aspect of our lives.
By 2008, SCI released a complete Virtual Spa and Salon package for the industry on a private cloud. Recognizing private clouds were not as powerful, in 2010, we moved to the public Cloud, Amazon ec2 as the Host with a new name, Virtual Cloud Software. By 2013, we were ahead of the technology curve with new innovations on the #1 Cloud Host in the world. Any device with a browser can access Virtual Cloud Software that has a 99.9999% up-time on the Amazon Cloud Host. ECS (enterprise cloud services) team monitors 24/7. Amazon, a good partnership and a great decision for Virtual Cloud Software and our valued customers.
Who We Are Today
Today SCI remains on the forefront of innovation by writing CRM (client relationship management) software.
The VCS Guest Center is advanced all-in-one software that connects to all the other spokes in the wheel making it the most cohesive APP on the Cloud to control and monitor your day with the goal of making every single guest happy; cause and effect, the guests purchase more. Staff use the software according to their job/task and all focused on the guest. Each piece fits into the puzzle completing a guest’s experience and every transaction is tracked on VCS.
All processes are tracked and measured to paint a picture of the business at any given time. Processes tracked with sufficient detail reveal answers otherwise unknown. Decisions are based on all angles of the reality of the numbers. From these numbers and your relationship with team members, new paradigms form.
Backed by the finest support teams, we are confident VCS software keeps our customers safe with the best in security during a disaster or good times.
We are available for a demo so … Let’s get started.
