Chilean Nail Franchise, French Beauty, Chooses GramercyOne's SalonBooker for Its Online Booking and Franchise Management Software

Expanding Nail Salon Operator Chooses SalonBooker To Manage Salons and Distribution Internationally.

GramercyOne, New York, NY – April 14, 2011: French Beauty has chosen GramercyOne, LLC, the New York based producer of SalonBooker, to provide web-based software for online booking, social media marketing, internal e-commerce product distribution and business management of its franchise network.

Formed in 2004, French Beauty is Chile’s largest nail salon franchise and CND distributor. The company has 16 franchise salons in Chile and will be launching two locations in France later in 2011. Services include manicures, pedicures, acrylic nails and reflexology, as well as waxing, aesthetic and cosmetic services.

“GramercyOne’s SalonBooker was the ideal choice for French Beauty, as it will allow us to offer online booking and multi-location management, as well as enabling us to promote our services directly through Facebook and Twitter integration. SalonBooker was the only software capable of offering all this, as well as running our internal product distribution through the SalonBooker e-commerce engine,” said Samuel Arama, CEO of French Beauty.

GramercyOne is a leading provider of web-based scheduling, marketing, CRM, point of sale and business management software. Josh McCarter, CEO of GramercyOne, said: “French Beauty’s decision to join the GramercyOne family perfectly demonstrates the ability of our software to meet the business needs of multi-location international clients who need flexibility and comprehensive features. SalonBooker will aid French Beauty in building its franchise network in Chile and across the globe.”

Editor’s Note:
French Beauty was created in Chile in 2004, by Vanessa and Valerie Arama, from a very simple concept: Give our client a great quality service at an affordable price, ensuring that the experience would be unique in the Chilean market.

Since the start our communication has been inspirational, as the nail market in Chile was totally non-existent. To ensure quality services and quality products, we went to the US to sign up the distribution of all major nail care brands for Chile (CND, Orly, NSI), which we did through our distribution company (manicure.cl). This way we could not only grow from the inside, but also educate the general public, and the professionals on the benefits of using quality products, and quality education. Today we are the main supplier for all the Spas, and nail care salons.

Since then, the single store became a chain of 15, and is offering all services for hand and foot care, plus hair removals, and some basic cosmetology.
