TechGraph: Can you explain how the on-demand booking process works for Yes Madam’s home salon services? How does the company ensure customer safety and hygiene during the pandemic?

Mayank Arya: Yes Madam is an on-demand home salon service provider that offers convenient and professional beauty services to customers in the comfort of their homes. The booking process is simple and user-friendly.

Customers can download the Yes Madam app or visit their website to book a salon service. They can select the desired service, date, time, and location for the appointment. Once the booking is confirmed, Yes Madam’s platform assigns a trained and verified beauty professional to the customer’s appointment based on availability and proximity.

The assigned beauty professional arrives at the customer’s location equipped with the necessary tools and products and provides the requested beauty service, such as facials, manicures, pedicures, spas, etc., following industry best practices. After the service is completed, customers can pay through various options provided by Yes Madam. They can also provide feedback and rate the beauty professional’s service.

During the pandemic, Yes Madam took several measures to ensure customer safety and hygiene. The brand implemented strict safety protocols and guidelines for beauty professionals, including mandatory mask-wearing, frequent hand sanitization, and regular health checks.

Convenience and Flexibility: Yes Madam offers on-demand salon services, allowing customers to book appointments at their preferred time and location. This flexibility makes it convenient for customers to receive professional beauty services at home. Not just that, we also provide customers with the convenience to book the last service professional. This is to have a better service experience and establish a rapport with the service expert.

User-Friendly Technology: Yes Madam provides a user-friendly app and website, making it easy for customers to book appointments, select services, and make payments. The intuitive interface enhances the overall customer experience.
