The Silver Diva Chooses SalesVu over Square for Advanced Reporting and Customer Management

The Silver Diva (TSD) is a premiere hand stamping jewelry studio in Cincinnati. Customers can learn how to hand stamp jewelry and accessories or purchase pre-stamped jewelry. Hand-stamping instruction is free and anyone six or older can participate.

“The art of hand stamping involves striking metal with steel stamps to create letters, words or designs,” said The Silver Diva Owner Carrissa Barbee. “It makes a really fun party for birthdays, ladies’ night out, social events or fundraisers.”

Prior to adopting SalesVu’s pos system, TSD was using PayPal and ProPay. They needed an mPOS solution because they occasionally attend craft shows out in the field and find it easier to work the same way in the shop.

After looking into several other POS solutions, like Square, TSD chose SalesVu “because of the reporting abilities, ease of adding products to the back end and the ability to swipe cards simply where buyers sign on a tablet.”

“I really like the back end where we can put all of our [itemized] products in and pull up reports about when people are buying,” said Barbee. “I also like to keep a full list of our customers so when they come back, we can easily track it.”

“SalesVu has helped our business by being able to easily keep track of our in-store inventory and keep our online sales seperate from our retail story,” said Barbee.

A.D.S. Kustoms Glass Adopts SalesVu for Inventory Management, Invoicing and ECommerce

image-1

“We like to say that, ‘We make gifts that last forever,’ here at ADS Kustoms Glass-Sandblasting,” said Owner Noe Agado.

ADS can personalize any glassware, mirror, stainless steel, copper, aluminum or even wood item. They can blast text and artwork to almost anything, though they focus on glass as it leaves the best impression. ADS can also cut glass into different depths for texture variations.

ADS went mobile soon after Agado began sandblasting, as he realized he needed to take the service to his customers. Prior to adopting SalesVu, he had used PayPal, invoiceASAP, Intuit GoPayment, Quickbooks and an invoice generator.

“I really enjoy SalesVu because of the web portal,” said Agado. “Being able to load and track my inventory along with sales reporting is going to make my tax report easy.”

One of ADS’ favorite features is the ability to email invoices and receipts. Once Agado receives the payment email, he can ship customers their custom products.

“For example, over Christmas, I had a lot of Facebook sales,” said Agado. “I was able to add the customers’ info to the order, click on the email envelope and start working in the order that the invoices were paid.”

SalesVu has allowed ADS to expand their sales to different parts of Texas.

“I have consignment sales people who I’ve added as payment locations to my system,” said Agado of his sales expansion. “I’ve even cross synced a few devices that we use at farmers markets to allow different people to take orders and others to cash them out.”

SalesVu’s ECommerce is also allowing him to expand his business beyond just Texas.

Quick Product Addition, Inventory Management and Customer History Make the Difference at JV Skin and Beauty

The Company

JV Skin and Beauty (JVSB) is a skin care and beauty boutique. JVSB was created with the intent to ensure a customized, serious treatment focused on skin health. Each appointment is unique and centers around individual clients’ goals.

“I help clients achieve individual beauty,” said Jen Valdivia. “It is not how we look to the world, but how we feel in it. JV Skin and Beauty is about helping people realize their desired experience.”

The Needs

JVSB needed an mPOS solution to accept payments anywhere, anytime using mobile devices. Valdivia occasionally travels for work and needs the flexibility of a “simple card reader” and a “secure system that is capable of quick transactions.” JVSB includes products and services, so the POS system needs to go beyond a simple solution.

“I need to be able to manage inventory, customers, product costs and taxes on the go,” said Valdivia. “This helps me avoid time-consuming updates and painful reconciliation when I’m back at my desk.”

The SalesVu Decision

JVSB began looking into other POS and ECommerce solutions, including Booker, Intuit, NCR Silver and Shopify, after using Square.

“SalesVu allows me to manage product inventory and link customers to their purchases,” said Valdivia. “I have products that I provide for my clients and needed a system that allowed the inclusion of products in the same transaction of an actual client service. I also chose SalesVu because of the easy export feature and customizable features that set it apart, such as: alerts, customer profiles and quick additions at POS.”

The Results

JVSB likes the capability to quickly add a service or product that may have been missed in the initial upload of products. They can quickly type in the service, cost, tax rate, etc when finishing a transaction without disturbing the client. According to Valdivia, this ability has been critical at JV Skin and Beauty.

“One of my customers tends to add on services on-the-spot that are not common, so I absolutely needed to quickly add it at POS,” said Valdivia.

SalesVu has also helped JVSB streamline the ability to view revenue and profits.

“I can pull and save reports when I analyze sales; I get inventory alerts, can customize the type of notifications I receive and use both the mobile and full site to view data,” said Valdivia. “It’s easy to use, looks clean and streamlines, and customer service has been outstanding the few times I’ve called.”

Lastly, JVSB has saved about $50 per month by using SalesVu.

SalesVu Retail POS at Kim Bloomberg Designs

Kim Bloomberg Designs (KBD) is a handmade jewelry studio that prides itself on using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. KBD boasts a customer base of feminine, strong women who have a strong sense of style and appreciation for fine jewelry.

Kim Bloomberg, KBD owner, needed an iPad POS because she frequently goes to fine art and trade shows. The studio is also often on the road, making inventory management key. They also wanted a POS system that could integrate with QuickBooks.

After extensive research and previous experience with Square, KBD discovered that SalesVu’s retail POS was not only easy to setup and use, but also cost efficient and used by most small businesses at the big shows.

“We knew our customers would be comfortable with it and we could train our staff to use it,” said Bloomberg.

KBD loves the SalesVu-QuickBooks integration because they are able to track inventory, sales and profits and transfer the information into QuickBooks for quick and seamless accounting.

“This is necessary to effectively run a business,” said Bloomberg of the simplified accounting.

According to Bloomberg, SalesVu has helped KBD get more organized and helped them refine and tighten their product lines.

“We have uploaded over 300 items to SalesVu and when we analyzed our products, we realized it was necessary to simplify the scope of each collection,” said Bloomberg.

KBD also saves money with the pricing flexibility, which allowed them “to use the product and not actually have to pay a dime until launching with actual customers.”

SalesVu’s ECommerce Transforms CBS Cycling into a Worldwide Business

CBS Cycling began as a consignment shop in Paul Chia’s house where people could recycle their used bikes, parts and accessories. This eventually evolved into a small location in Valencia, California that went beyond just consignment to new products, as well. Today, CBS Cycling is a boutique shop that specializes in one-on-one customer service. They cater to everyone from beginner riders to elite amateurs.

A mobile POS was important for CBS because of their transition from home business to retail location.

“[SalesVu] has been able to move with us and grow as we have grown,” said CBS Owner Paul Chia.

Chia looked into several retail POS systems, including: Shopkeep, NCR Silver and LightSpeed. However, all of those options had high initial costs that CBS could not afford as a new business. Chia had also previously used Regit POS, but was not happy with the cost.

“We had no upfront costs to start the business with SalesVu, so the savings just keep growing since there have been no further costs to maintain,” said Chia. “The capability to use almost any electronic device made the choice easy.”

SalesVu’s iPad POS allows CBS to be tech savvy with ease of use and accessibility.

“The best feature is the ability to access the site anywhere,” said Chia. “The ease of use in setting up and creating inventory, tracking orders and managing employees has been a major plus.”

Additionally, Chia really likes the available customer service. SalesVu’s team has been “a great bouncing board” in terms of features and how-to’s for Chia.

However, he claims the greatest feature is the ECommerce website.

“The website/widget allows our products, currently on-site, to be sold worldwide,” said Chia. “This one-stop shop that integrates current inventory to online availability will allow us to reach more customers.”

SDAdish Puts Their Trust in SalesVu’s ECommerce for Their Nationwide Business

The Company

SDAdish (SDA) is a small business that sells free-to-air satellite equipment, meaning once you buy the equipment you can watch TV without monthly fees or contracts. SDA has several channel packages available, some of which include up to 200 channels. They also offer installation and repair to customers within a 150 mile radius of their office in Priest River, Idaho. Additionally, SDA has begun selling cell phone boosters, antennas, survival gear and health products.

“Primarily, our goal is to make Christian television available to more people at an affordable cost,” said SDAdish Owner Natalie Ocon. “We also want to make more people aware that there is still free TV available out there, with quality programming as well.”

The Needs

SDAdish needed an iPad POS solution because they frequently attend trade shows and Christian camp meetings where they need to process credit cards on the spot. They also needed to be able to accept credit cards while doing local installations and repairs.

“Because we sell nationwide, almost all of our sales occur over the phone or online,” said Ocon. “Therefore, if we are out in the field doing an installation, we can still take orders and process credit cards while out of the office.”

The SalesVu Decision

Prior to adopting SalesVu, SDAdish was using SecurePay. SDA was able to integrate it “fairly well” with their website, but it had more limitations and many extra fees.

“Also, every year they required us to go through a PCI compliance questionnaire and pay $180; I got pretty tired of that,” said Ocon.

Once deciding to look at other POS systems, SDA considered PayPal, Square and Intuit GoPayment. They chose SalesVu because they had the most features at the best rate.

“[SalesVu] has a low rate, no annual PCI compliance fee or other fees like, statement fees or getaway fees,” said Ocon. “We also needed to be able to integrate the credit card processing with our existing website and be able to use our mobile devices to process cards.”

SalesVu ECommerce

One of SDA’s favorite things about SalesVu is the ECommerce feature.

“We like being able to add products, descriptions, pictures and more to the website and then be able to see them on the app as well,” said Ocon. “We also like the ‘Buy’ buttons that we’ve integrated into our website as the shopping cart.”

According to Ocon, SDAdish was getting thousands of views to the website but they weren’t getting enough conversions to sales with their previous POS shopping cart system.

“It seems that with SalesVu, the checkout process is less confusing to the customer,” said Ocon. “They click on the ‘Buy’ button and are taken to a nice, clean item description page to complete their order.”

SDA also enjoys how easy it is to add new products, as well as remove items from ECommerce with a click of the mouse.

“With our last POS provider, we didn’t have the option to remove items from ECommerce when we were out of stock,” said Ocon. “We had to list it as ‘Out of Stock’ and hope that the customer would read that and not try to continue with the order.”

Ocon’s husband, Max, also had a lot to say about SalesVu’s ECommerce feature:

“The ECommerce has been great,” said Max. “My customers have found that our new system works much better, is easy to use and I like it too! I especially like the SalesVu dashboard and the easy-to-understand interface features for setting up products under categories, all with different options. The [ECommerce] website also works great on mobile devices, like phones.”

“My last service was quite a hassle to work with and you can’t beat SalesVu’s customer service,” said Max. “I give them a 10 and two thumbs up for their quick tech support response.”

The Results

“SalesVu has helped our business by making it possible for our website to be more user-friendly,” said Ocon. “It has also saved us quite a bit of money that we can use elsewhere to help our business grow.”

Ocon says that SDAdish saves about $420/year on fees alone by using SalesVu.

McKinneys Irish Pub Chooses SalesVu’s Restaurant POS over Square, Micros and Aloha

1001904_632171753473524_372785540_n

McKinneys Irish Pub (MIP) is a new, authentic 2,000 square foot pub in the Haymarket district of Lincoln, Nebraska. MIP boasts a large selection of craft beer and Irish whiskeys.

Though McKinneys only opened in November, Owner Nathan Stewart has been in the food industry for almost 15 years and worked with numerous POS solutions, including Micros, Aloha and Square.

Stewart wanted an iPad POS to “step up the service.” McKinneys can now have servers on the floor with iPad Minis and save two to three minutes in the ordering process.

“This was the first time we went to an iPad interface,” said Stewart. “I used Square before for my other business but I knew that I would be running a bar and needing more detail like, printing credit card receipts, inventory control and clocking employees in and out. I would say I researched [SalesVu] for about a month [prior to making my decision].”

Stewart also considered Square, Breadcrumb, Revel and Micros for McKinneys.

“I chose SalesVu’s restaurant POS because of the price, customization abilities, inventory control and integration with QuickBooks,” said Stewart.

Stewart says his favorite SalesVu feature is the QuickBooks integration.

“It makes our job as business owners a lot easier when you don’t have to spend so much time doing the reports,” said Stewart. “All of the different reports that SalesVu can do are really convenient as well.”

Stewart believes that SalesVu has made them more efficient and saved them anywhere from $500 to $15,000 based on other estimates he was given. He also says he has saved on SalesVu’s free customer support.

Small Fry Owner, Rico Nasol, Explains the Significance of SalesVu’s Reporting

unnamed-2

The Company

Small Fry (SF) is a San Jose, California food truck that specializes in Belgian-style french fries with gourmet toppings. SF believes that french fries should be the “star” and no longer the side dish.

“Being America’s favorite side, it deserves to stand on its own,” said Small Fry Owner Rico Nasol.

Small Fry accomplishes this by bringing flavors to their fries from Asia, Mexico, the U.S. and beyond.

Small Fry’s Needs

As a food truck, SF needs a POS system that was as mobile as they are.

“We have different locations every day of the week and different locations for lunch and dinner,” said Nasol. “We need the flexibility to process payments anywhere we go. If you don’t take cards, you turn away so much business.”

The SalesVu Decision

When looking into mobile POS solutions, SF also considered Square and PayPal.

“We are a new business and SalesVu was our first choice,” said Nasol. “We signed up for Square as a backup, but we knew that SalesVu is exactly what we were looking for. The cost savings and the reporting, by far, gave SalesVu the edge.”

“SalesVu is the perfect combination of an easy to use frontend with a robust backend reporting suite,” said Nasol. “It provides the functionality that we need for our young and growing business; it helps us manage everything from labor costs to sales.”

SalesVu had several features that attracted Nasol, including the ability to track how the truck’s sales regardless of where he is.

“I can login to the backend service and check orders in real time which helps on the days that I am not on the truck,” said Nasol. “The backend allows me to track those sales as well as analyze what sells best, when and where. It really helps us control inventory and be prepared for each service location.”

He also really liked SalesVu’s ease of use.

“It is so easy to set up products, categories, etc,” said Nasol.”Adding pictures is a breeze and the fact that all of that information can sync to our website is fantastic!”

The Results

Small Fry is saving money on transaction fees and food costs due to the ability to gauge their needs.

“SalesVu really gives us the high level and the granular views we need to help make our business more efficient,” said Nasol. “We can slice and dice the data how we need to so we can figure out how to run our truck best.”

As a new business, Small Fry looks forward to online ordering, calling it a “powerful tool,” once they build up a following and repeat customers.
