Mikal Software recently won the prestigious 2011 Innovative Solutions Award in the In-Store Customer Touch Point category. Presented by VSR and the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) along with judges from Hospitality Technology magazine and RIS News, the awards honor those companies who truly revolutionize business technology. The judges carefully looked at nearly 100 nominations in seven categories to find the best of the best in the industry. In its 4th year, the Innovative Solutions Awards strive to recognize the companies that make their clients’ business stronger and more efficient. Mikal Software has won for their CyberPreceptionist, a user–friendly software program designed to let employees and clients book appointments with ease. Staff in a day spa or salon can also manage customers using a tablet device that allows the front desk receptionist to become portable by handling client check-in, check-out, updates to client tech and personal information, and checking on real-time activity in the front of the salon, like number of clients waiting, bookings to date, or cancellations.
