  • Salon/Spa Environments

    ⦿ Many current systems today have been a great success. That is, until technology moved past them. The SalX team has researched what has worked and what has fallen short. This shortfall includes how business owners expect to run their business today and how clients expect communication to be. So what does that mean?

    ⦿ The SalX team have created a platform that addresses the need to be forward thinking while allowing emerging trends and methods to be easily incorporated into SalX. If there becomes a new method of communication that trends to most clientele we are prepared to bring that into the SalX platform. All at no extra cost to you, the business owner.

    ⦿ Features such as SMS and online booking usually come at an extra cost. With SalX, it is all inclusive. No shortfalls or caps are imposed. Use SalX the way it is intended - to be a full service business tool.

    ⦿ We understand that business tools albeit come at a cost, should present a return on its investment (ROI). Typically we see an ROI immediately. With a single full service client a month, your investment in SalX is paid for.

  • ....But I am running a Mac?!

    COOL! We have many happy clients running SalX on their Mac. There are a few steps that need to happen prior to starting SalX. These include... (btw if you'd rather watch a video on this simple process click here).

    Step 1. - install VirtualBox: VirtualBox runs on Macs sand allows you to install Windows 10. Get it from here, download the 'OS X hosts' package, and install it. No special instructions needed.

    Step 2. - Get the Windows 10 ISO File: Head to this page to get it. When you go there, click "Get started," and follow the instructions and prompts until you finally get to the download page. Choose your language and whether you want to download the 32-bit or 64-bit version. Depending on your hardware we recommend downloading the 64-bit version. Remember where you have downloaded the ISO file, because you'll need to know that later.

    Step 3. - Start the Windows 10 installation Run VirtualBox and click the New icon on the upper-left side of the machine. From the screen that appears, type Windows 10 in the name field. Then from the Version drop-down box, select Windows 10, and choose either the 32-bit or 64-bit version, depending on the ISO you downloaded.

    Step 4. - Select the amount of RAM Next you'll be prompted to select how much RAM you want to devote to your Windows 10 virtual machine. You'll be shown a recommended amount of RAM. You can change it if you want, but I've used VirtualBox for several years and have created many virtual machines, and I've found its recommendations to be on target. So unless you know what you're doing and have a very good reason to change it, accept the recommendation.

    Step 5. - Create a Virtual Hard Drive In order to install Windows 10, you'll have to create a virtual hard drive for installing it. So from the screen that appears after you've selected the amount of RAM, click "Create a virtual hard drive." Choose VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) as the file type. For the type of drive, you'll have a choice between one that is a fixed size and one that dynamically allocates space, that is, it grows larger if the operating system needs it. Your best bet is to choose a fixed size. That offers better performance. Click "Create" after you've made your choices.

    Step 6. - Select your ISO as the startup disk After you create the virtual hard drive, you'll be sent back to the VirtualBox main screen. Click the Start button. You'll be asked to "Select start-up disk." Head to where you downloaded the Windows 10 ISO file, click "Start," and the installation begins.

    Step 7. - Finish installing Windows 10 From here on in, it's just like any normal Windows installation, with the usual occasional reboots. The reboots happen inside VirtualBox, not on your machine itself.

    Step 8. - Download, install SalX Start Windows 10, download SalX and follow the directions!
