We are approaching the final countdown to the big SeriousBusiness weekend and between planning our speaker schedules, meals and catching some Mardi Gras festivities we have been busy planning our Resource Space (formerly known as the Expo area). The Resource Space will be in the historic Roosevelt Hotel this year and will be packed full of your favorite companies!

This year, we’ve invited our partners that we seamlessly integrate with to share our space. We are all truly here to help you succeed and are excited to show you what’s new and how, together, we can help you grow.

If you’ve got your tickets to SeriousBusiness save some time in your schedule and come visit our incredible group in the Tech Space. Click here for the full event schedule.

Of course, if you can’t make it to the show this year, we’ve included the links for each partner so you can visit them virtually. No matter what, follow SalonBiz on Twitter or FaceBook and we’ll be sure to post updates and shenanigans throughout the weekend.

What is ZeeZor you ask?

In short, your NEW favorite app! ZeeZor seamlessly combines powerful technology and the one factor every human seeks…VALIDATION. It’s not always easy to recognize every stylists’ strengths and opportunities in regards to a business.

ZeeZor frees salon owners and managers from their computers and reports, allowing them to focus on what and who are driving the business. What would typically take hours of time and reams of paper, ZeeZor delivers in a clean, near real-time dashboard to your smartphone. Stylists can see exactly where their service and retail sales, rebook percentages, retention rates and more are for the day, week, month and year.

ZeeZor engages employees to compete against themselves and their teammates by providing year-over-year comparisons supporting growth to new artists and veterans alike; but, growth without recognition is often short-lived.

ZeeZor fosters communication between every stylist, manager, owner and even manufacturer. When seeing a new stylist with an awesome rebook percentage, the salon owner can let them know right through the app how great they’re doing. Praise validates the team and lets them know you know how amazing they are!
