Check out the latest updates to Shortcut Fusion! These changes affect your cloud-based features only.

Updates effective from: 12th June 2017.

New features and improvements


  • We have improved performance to ensure that changes made in Shortcuts Fusion are reflected faster in the S.M.A.R.T. System Console.

Mobile Guest App

  • You can now let your clients book an appointment on behalf of a friend or family member. This is perfect for your clients who are visiting the salon with a friend, who would like to book on behalf of someone as a surprise gift, or who would like to book for someone who doesn’t have their own mobile phone or Online Booking account. The client simply chooses the person’s relationship to themselves (i.e. child, partner, friend) and the new person will be linked to their account for easy selection next time they book. Want to learn more? Watch this video
