    Review Date: 28 March, 2019
    In a saturated salon industry it’s so important to make every transaction (and experience) as seamless as possible. The Grand Apps Team took my logo, color palette and made the brand come to life in our own app! Our guests are over the moon to be able to collect rewards, shop our store, watch tutorials and schedule reservations all in one central location. Bravo Grand Apps, it continues to be a pleasure working with you! Nicole Flier Launch salon
