Appointment Calendar

Consent Forms

Envision Ink allows you create, store, and print consent forms directly from the software.

As soon as your client checks in, Envision will automatically print a consent form for your client. If you choose, you can scan the signed form and store it in your client's electronic file.

Tattoo and Piercing Consent forms

Themes / Customizable Colors

Customize your software to fit the color scheme of your tattoo studio. Envision Ink has over 25 different theme styles to personalize your program. You can even color code your appointments to suit your needs.

With just a quick glance at the calendar, you can easily see if your next appointment is for a returning customer or a new client.


Waiting List

Quickly fill canceled appointments by using the Waiting List to keep track of clients that are available for last minute appointments.

Enter clients into the Waiting List according to the dates and times that the client is available and Envision will automatically notify you if there is a customer waiting for an appointment.

Don’t have time to call them? Email or send a text message of the available appointment time.

Standing Appointments

When a client is getting a tattoo that requires multiple visits, don’t waste time scheduling each separate appointment. Use Envision’s standing appointments feature to automatically schedule a series of appointments.

Give your clients a printed schedule of their appointments so that they can enter their appointments in their own calendar when it is convenient for them.

Automatic Appointment Confirmations (SMS / Email)

Eliminate no shows with Envision’s automated appointment confirmation feature.

Envision supports 3 fully automatic appointment reminder configurations. Each configuration can be set to automatically remind your clients via SMS or Email at specific intervals. These automatic reminders are sent transparently in the background and do not interrupt your day to day processing.

With SMS, clients can optionally respond and confirm / cancel the appointment.

Pretreatment Tracking

If your business has any skin test requirements, Envision Ink can remind you when a client is due for a skin test by placing a flag on top of their appointment.

You can even run a report that will give you a list of clients that are requiring a skin test.

Walk-in Queue Manager

Efficiently manage Walk-In clients with Envision’s Walk-In Queue Manager.

When a client arrives, select an artist for their appointment or have Envision Auto Select an artist for you. Envision has the ability to auto-rotate artists so that clients are evenly distributed among the artists.

You can even send a text message to your customer letting them know that their artist is ready for them. This allows them to visit nearby shops while they are waiting.

Qualified Services

Enter services that the employee is capable of performing and eliminate confusion when booking appointments. When you set up qualified services for each staff member, Envision will alert you when you are trying to book, for example, a tattoo appointment when the employee is only qualified to perform piercings.

If you have new front desk staff, they will not be able to make the mistake of scheduling a service that the provider is not able to perform.

Schedule Read Only Viewer

Limit the access that everyone has to the entire business’ Appointment Schedule by providing access to a read-only version of your Appointment Schedule.

Everyone will be able to see the appointments scheduled and appointment availabilities, but they won’t have the ability to schedule new appointments or make changes to existing appointments.

With Envision’s program security, you can also give each person access to their own schedule so that they can schedule and make changes to their own appointments without having access to everyone else’s schedule.

Coupon / Promo Support

Providing Coupons and Promo Codes is always a great way to find new clients and bring your current clients back.

Envision Ink allows you to create as many coupons and promo codes as you wish that can be setup as a discount percentage or fixed dollar amount discount.

You can even run a Coupon Redemption report that will tell you how many of each coupon is being used and the percent of discount that is being provided to each client.

Group Booking

The Group Booking feature of Envision allows you to book appointments for Groups and Parties so that their appointments are all linked with each other. This will make it easier for you to view all of their appointments together and you can also checkout them out under the same client that is the organizer.

Product / Aftercare Instructions

Every tattoo and piercing requires special care. Envision Ink will automatically print aftercare instructions for your clients so they know exactly how to care for their skin.

If you sell special products for tattoo and piercing maintenance, you can include product recommendations and instructions on your aftercare form. You will never forgot to tell your clients what to use, or how to care for their tattoos and piercings.

Tattoo Parlor Aftercare Instructions

Purchase Orders

Envision Ink allows you to create and print purchase orders for retail products and professional products and also allows you to keep records of every purchase order so that you are able to run reports on all of your Purchase Order and Vendor information at any time.

Purchase Orders can also be easily received, updating your product quantities automatically so that you do not have to do a physical count of your products every time an order comes in.

Tattoo Parlor Purchase Orders

Physical Counts

Use the Physical Count screen to take control of your inventory.

The physical count screen provides a fast way to update the amount of inventory in the program. The amount of inventory stated on the physical screen should match the actual quantity inventory on the shelf.

This is a fast way to see what you should have on your shelf and what you actually have on hand. Large variances between the stated quantity and the actual quantity should be a warning.

Color Schedule Based on Service

Envision Ink's fully customizable calendar allows you to color code your appointment calendar by service or by retention. If you choose to color your calendar by services, you can easily see what type of appointment is on your book.

For example, if you perform tattoos and piercings, with a quick glance at the calendar you can see that your 12:00pm appointment is a tattoo and your 2:00pm appointment is a piercing.

Appointment Colors Based on Tattoo Services

Inventory Labels / Barcode Support

Print inventory labels from within Envision.

You can choose print labels for all products, by vendor, item type, or manufacturer. Using inventory labels with a bar code scanner eliminates pricing confusion at checkout. The item will automatically be taken out of inventory to keep your inventory counts correct and provide you with accurate information for reports.

Physical Count Barcode Scanner Support

Saved time during your inventory count and reduce errors by using a barcode scanner when counting. Quickly scan inventory items and let Envision Ink do the counting for you.

One-Click Auto Purchase Orders

Ordering new retail or professional products can be extremely time-consuming. Envision Ink’s One Click Auto Purchase Order feature will make this process much easier and faster!

Simply setup reorder minimums and maximums for your products and the program can tell you exactly what needs to be ordered and how many of each item needs to be ordered as well. There will be no need to count every product each time you place an order because Envision already knows how many you have and the quantity that you would like to reorder at. You also won’t need to rely on a vendor telling you what you need to order, so you won’t have extra items in stock that aren’t selling.

One-Click Purchase Orders

Email Purchase Orders to Vendor

This option emails your purchase orders directly to your vendor.

Service Packages

This screen can be used to select the services that will appear in the Sales Register when a client is checked out for this service from the calendar.

Professional Consumables

This screen will allow you to choose the Back Bar products that are used for this service. When a client is checked out for this service, the item will be automatically removed from inventory and will show up on your sales reports for Back Bar.

Auto Price Adjustments

Price Adjustments allows you to make changes to multiple items in your Inventory List. Change costs and prices, departments, vendors and many other selections for all inventory items.

Client Images

Envision Ink allows you to store an unlimited number of pictures for each client. See before and after images, keep track of your progress when doing a series of work, compare flash to actual tattoo, and have access to a gallery of your work. Keep a main picture for each client to see exactly who you are booking or checking out.

Pictures can be uploaded from a camera, scanner, or taken with a web cam.

Number of Employees Allowed

Envision allows for a certain number of employees to be set up in the system. This will help you determine which version is right for you.

Employee Departments are normally used to specify whether the employee is a Stylist, Nail Tech, Massage Therapist or Esthetician.
