With legislation regarding client information tightening due to GDPR, as well as the need for beauticians to obtain the necessary client consent before carrying out treatments, many beauty salons are looking at more efficient and cost effective ways to gather and store data.
Thanks to electronic consent forms, beauty salons are able to safely and professionally obtain, manage and store confidential client information and consent electronically by storing it safely to The Cloud. Here are 3 ways that iPEGS’ electronic forms can help beauty salons easily gather and store client data.
1.Switch from paper to electronic consent forms
Electronic consent forms are the easiest way to gather client data, whilst gaining consent. Unlike old fashioned paper, pen and clip boards, you can hand your client an iPad or tablet and create a professional and engaging first impression. You can even email your clients a form to fill out in advance of the treatment to speed up the consultation process.
Electronic forms also eliminate the risk of incorrectly filled in fields, illegible handwriting and lost paperwork, while mandatory fields will ensure the form is fully completed. Plus, beauty salon electronic consent forms enable you to stay compliant with the latest GDPR requirements.
2. Store data in The Cloud
The Cloud is an online space where you can store your data, safely and conveniently, which is why an ever-increasing number of businesses and individuals are turning to it.
Electronic consent forms allow you to easily save and store client data straight to the cloud, and with its advanced security features and low maintenance costs, it’s the smartest way to store your valuable data. It also allows you to access client information from anywhere – which is ideal for mobile beauticians or those who work from third party salons.
3. Complete forms using electronic devices helps protect client data
Electronic consent forms bring beauty salon owners and their clients, complete peace of mind. The ease at which information can be obtained electronically and then safely stored straight to the Cloud, means that your clients’ sensitive information will remain safe, secure and confidential. Paper forms, on the other hand, leave beauty salon owners vulnerable to theft, loss or damage, not to mention the sheer amount of space they take up being in stored in a filing cabinet.
