Tiburon Golf Club gets an ace for convenience using SalesVu’s iPad POS Solution

T Golf 1
Tiburon Golf Club (TGC) is a semi-private 27-hole facility that handles events such as business outings, graduation parties and league tournaments in Omaha, Nebraska.  They not only offer golf lessons with a PGA professional, but have an on-site sports bar where you can eat your favorite American dishes at any time.

Always working to stay a step ahead of their competition, TGC owner Bob Hill Jr sought a mobile POS solution so their facility could process credit card sales on beverage carts. TGC has three carts that rotate around the 27-holes and they needed to incorporate a system that could manage multiple tabs from different devices. Using SalesVu’s iPad POS solution, TGC has been able to keep the beverage carts running consistently and conveniently on the course while managing different tabs and processing credit cards on the spot. Hill remarked that this software has made it easy to host corporate events because guests can charge multiple drinks on their tab from different locations on the course and have just one receipt to deal with at the end of the day.

Before deciding on SalesVu, Hill downloaded Intuit and other similar software programs but chose SalesVu after speaking with our technical support team.

SalesVu’s reporting feature has helped TGC tremendously as well. Their accountant has been able to use the detailed sales reports to allocate the company’s budget more efficiently. This has also allowed Hill to easily monitor sales trends and make business decisions based on the reports.

Hill says that TGC “loves the software because it works very well.” They were thrilled when they could use SalesVu to process credit cards on the beverage carts while still maintaining the golf-course specific software they use elsewhere on the property. Hill says their next ventures with SalesVu will be to explore the QuickBooks integration and launch an ecommerce website.

Inexpensive inventory management from SalesVu helps Denver Bicycle Cafe break away from it’s competitors

Denver Bicycle Café (DBC) is a very unique establishment that opened as a bike shop, tap house and coffee house in November of 2011. DBC regularly changes their selection of beers on tap in order to highlight the variety offered by local Colorado brewers. In addition, DBC provides a diverse array of coffee beans from local roasters and places a great deal of importance on their hands-on brewing process. Aside from all the delicious drinks available at DBC, they also operate as a full-service bicycle shop that offers both repairs and sales. DBC is set apart from their competitors because they pride themselves on having approachable, front of shop mechanics that are available to chat with you in order to understand your repair, as well as offer on-the-spot instructions and a selection of common tools for the do-it-yourself personalities.

iPad POS Solution

Prior to adopting SalesVu, DBC was using an old-fashioned cash register for their point-of-sale transactions. Being as new as they were, DBC sought a cloud-based POS solution that was compatible with Android platforms and that is what drew them to SalesVu.

After investigating ShopKeep and Square, DBC concluded that other solutions “didn’t have the functionality they needed” and decided to go with SalesVu for their business management needs instead.

“SalesVu is the only inexpensive POS solution that had advanced features like inventory management and employee payroll for timekeeping.” said Peter Roper, manager and co-founder of DBC.

DBC loves that SalesVu’s inventory tracking works flawlessly, and they are looking to integrate the ecommerce feature to their website as the next frontier.

SalesVu is a necessary component of running DBC because without it, they would have to reinvent their whole processing system. To run a business, Roper says you need “electricity, water and your POS system.” SalesVu is ecstatic to be the preferred choice of POS solution for DBC’s business management needs.

Sugar House Coffee selects SalesVu over Square for inventory management

Sugar House Coffee (SHC) has been providing it’s community with a destination gathering space since 2002. During breakfast they offer freshly baked pastries, bagels, local eggs and a variety of vegan friendly and gluten free options. For lunch they have paninis, sandwiches, wraps, hummus plates and more. This coffee house, café and catering service has crafted a delicious menu with locally sourced ingredients for the community of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Before SalesVu, SHC’s POS Solution was a “very outdated” PC with Coffee Shop Manager but they wanted to move to a mobile POS so they could sync the devices in the shop with their devices on the go for catering. After researching other systems like Square, SHC General Manager Emily Potts “liked that SalesVu had the same fee whether it was a swipe or manual entry. The fact that they offered free support 24 hours a day was a HUGE plus in my eyes.”

After exploring different solutions and asking many questions, SHC chose to trust SalesVu with their business management needs.

“We chose SalesVu because of their customer service foremost,” says Potts. “SalesVu’s associates were so helpful in answering all my questions and taking suggestions from me.”

SHC loves that SalesVu’s restaurant POS solution allows them the option to print receipts or send them by email. Inventory management has been beneficial for SHC as well because all products can be modified from a smart phone and prices can be adjusted easily and in real-time.

“We are always getting different pastries from our baker and I need to be able to add a product quickly,” says Potts. “I also love that there is an employee time clock on the POS – it’s nice to have everything on the same program. It makes payroll quick and easy.”

SalesVu’s services have saved SHC over a thousand dollars a month on merchant fees, and its user-friendly interface has helped speed up the processes of customer ordering and employee training. SHC is excited to integrate SalesVu’s ecommerce feature with their current website and incorporate QuickBooks as well.

SalesVu brings restaurant POS to the cloud at Cloud Cafe

Cloud Café (CC) is a tech-oriented espresso and teahouse that caters to the technology subculture in Katy, Texas. This establishment serves everything from bubble tea to coffee, to Italian soda and much more!

Restaurant POS

“We’re a hidden gem in our area,” said Denae Dehoyos, General Manager at CC.  “We are well known for our espresso based coffee drinks, as well as latte art, and the science behind making amazing coffee!”

CC sought a mobile restaurant POS system for versatility when dealing with different kinds of transactions. Whether they’re in the shop or out at an event, they wanted a system that could effectively and quickly take care of their most important priorities: great customers and great drinks.

Cloud Café has been a customer of SalesVu since their opening. They love the iPad POS system because it allows the use of up-to-date technology which most of their employees already have.

“As we are an all tech-savvy staff at the cafe, we enjoy having up to date technology at our fingertips – literally! It’s so much easier to just have a tablet or iPad (most of us here already own at least one) that we can pop a card reader on and handle our business,” said Dehoyos.

In addition, the reports feature has helped CC organize all of their purchase data by category. They enjoy being able to compare sale statistics in the form of graphs or charts in order to make the best financial choices for the company. The ease of reporting has saved CC “tons of man hours” that would be spent collecting data and entering numbers. Now they can put their minds to work on better, more innovative ideas for the company.

“It just makes so much more sense to save the man hours involved in numbers and marketing,” said Dehoyos. “[With SalesVu], reports are done how I want, in less time and without having to pay someone to do it for me.”

Cloud Café considered Square, as well as a “big, ancient and clunky POS machine that would cost a ton of money”, but decided to go with SalesVu for their business management needs instead.

“We already have phones and tablets handy. Why spend the money on old technology?” said Dehoyos, “We saved tons of money not having to hire an accountant for the company alone. SalesVu makes it easy to let anyone manage the finances.”

Using SalesVu, CC is able to give certain employees different permissions for managing POS transactions. Each month, CC holds a contest among its employees for who has the highest average ticket price for a prize.

“This is a fun and easy way to boost our own sales and we can check their progress easily and without confusion,” said Dehoyos. “It also encourages our employees to perform better on the job.”

SalesVu’s Intuitive Interface benefits SLG’s Art Boutiki

Art Boutiki

SLG’s Art Boutiki and Gallery is a combination of a comic shop, art gallery and live music venue that proudly stands in San Jose, California. The Boutiki is a “brick-and-mortar store” of SLG, a comic publishing company founded in 1986.

As a publisher, SLG frequently travels to trade shows and comic conventions so they needed a point-of-sale system that would be consistent on the road as well as in their San Jose location.

After considering Square and trying out Imonggo, SLG eventually decided to go with SalesVu.

“SalesVu offered the most functionality for the price and had an intuitive interface that was easy to get new employees up-to-speed on,” said Dan Vado, Supreme Commander of SLG.

Volunteers usually operate SLG’s point-of-sale transactions during events, so being able to use SalesVu software without much training was a greatly advantageous. In addition, the ability to process credit cards while away from their location increased SLG’s sales immensely.

SalesVu Helps Shades of Sugar Make Sweet Improvements

Shades of Sugar (SS) is a small bakery that provides custom cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cake balls and many other confections to the Richardson, Texas area.

Autumn Surface, SS owner, found herself in need of a mobile restaurant POS system because she wanted to be able to sit down with a customer to discuss cake ideas, and then ring up the sale at the same table. The shop’s previous owner had a massive traditional POS system that took up their entire counter. When Surface took over the shop, she was on a tight budget and didn’t want to pay “thousands” to maintain the current system or purchase a new mobile solution.

After struggling to keep up with employee hours, sales trends, expenses and invoices, Surface researched systems like Revel and ShopKeep and eventually decided to use SalesVu.

Shades of Sugar has been able to appropriate the Restaurant POS system to track sales in the front of the bakery as well as oversee employee hours and inventory in the back. Viewing reports helps SS see sales trends and make data-driven decisions about which cakes to sell and which to discontinue.

“I like that at any given time I can pull a report and see exactly what is happening financially at the bakery,” said Surface. “I can input my recipes and it will keep track of my inventory and my employees clock-in using SalesVu. It truly does everything! SalesVu has combined all of those [features] into one easy application and made my time mine again, so that I can do what I enjoy doing, BAKING.”

Lastly, moving to an mPOS system has helped Shades of Sugar seamlessly deliver products by allowing them to finalize a sale when it reaches it’s destination. The adoption of SalesVu has made business management at SS easier than ever.

“I like everything about SalesVu,” said Surface. “I am so glad that it keeps up with the front and back end of the bakery. I am busy all the with baking, so I like that SalesVu will keep up with all the stuff I don’t have time to keep up with.”

The Silver Diva Chooses SalesVu’s retail POS 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 retail 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.
