SalesVu all-in-one business solution and iPad POS System helps freelancers reach their outmost potential

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 12.34.39 PM

Being a freelancer requires discipline, conviction and organization. Our SalesVu user Jamie Weaver is a perfect example of all of these qualities as she manages her own business as a personal beauty consultant. Jamie uses SalesVu all-in-one business solution to manage her operations, both for convenient payments and for inventory tracking. We talked to her about her experience with SalesVu and especially why she chose SalesVu:

“It was easier to keep track of my money. I have a personal account  associated with SalesVu, so all the payments received go directly to that account. Hence, I have the money right where I need it, to pay for products and the beauty supplies.  I also attend to festivals and outdoor fairs, on these places the credit card swipper is extremely useful. I have an android phone and I can put the credit card info manually or use the swipper without any problem. However, I want to get the new generation iPad so I can use the big swipper and provide a more comfortable payment experience to all of my clients. One thing I have to say is that, even when the swipper fails, SalesVu’s rates are still the same, a feature that is extremely different to all the other business solutions I am aware of”.

Jamie told us that among all the POS competitors, SalesVu was the most suitable for her business requirements, especially considering that she needed an all-in-one business solution.

“The fact that SalesVu offers inventory management and a much lower credit card transaction rate were major influences in making the right choice.  Definitely, this was a big, big thing for me. Besides, square didn’t work half of the time. SalesVu is easier for taxes; I can separate things, for example, I can divide women services from men services and englobe everything even if it  is very specific (massages, facials, etc.)”

Jamie Told us about her favorite feature of SalesVu all-in-one business solution; for her, inventory management is extremely important since she needs to carry a very strict list of the ending beauty supplies. She told us:

” I need to know how much color I am using, SalesVu all-in-one business solution helps me get up to date with the supplies I use. With this, I can measure my return on investment. As a result, I can charge the client exactly what I use. I always put the charge per ounce and SalesVu helps me with that.”

She likes the fact that she can print the receipts which show the ones that were paid with cash, credit cards, or money orders. SalesVu all-in-one business solution helps Jamie and any of our users keep track of their clients.

“I now understand what they like to buy, I can see the previous purchases. I can type the client’s name and see the history of the things the clients buy or have bought in the past. I can go to the SalesVu app and see what products they use and which ones they really want because of it.”

Jamie told us that she would like to use the gift card feature SalesVu offers. If you want to have an appointment with a beauty specialist and get pampered by a top-of-the-line professional, like Jamie Weaver, visit her websites and be sure to book an appointment ASAP!

SalesVu’s iPad POS System manages customer relationships for Intuitive Hands!

Intuitive Hands

Intuitive Hands (IH) is a massage therapy studio located within the Healing Arts Center in Austin, Texas. IH owner Bichlien Tran, approaches the human body from a postural perspective, treating a variety of conditions by working with the alignment of the body. She focuses on pairing massage and bodywork with Pilates training to help clients correct dysfunctional movement patterns. Tran strives to develop personalized workout plans not only to prevent pain and injury, but also unite her clients’ mind and body into a state of wellbeing.

Tran sought a mobile POS system for IH when she realized she would need to take payments other than cash. About other mobile point-of-sale solutions Tran says “I did consider Square for a brief moment, but the little square did not seem sturdy for me, easy to lose, as well as their service fee was higher.”

Three years ago, Tran decided to trust SalesVu for her iPad POS solution and she’s never looked back. According to Tran, “SalesVu was straight forward and easy to use. It was a payment solution that also provided other services such as client directory and a record of transactions… Also, the fee was less compared to other competitors that did not offer extra services outside of only a credit card transaction.”

SalesVu’s reporting feature has made record keeping easy and simple for IH. Tran enjoys being able to view sales reports by week, month or year to keep track of how well business is doing. She also likes how SalesVu’s customer relationship management feature allows her to easily view client history in detail.

“I value the option to look up client history and see their payment history in detail: date they visited, how they paid, and if I needed to re-email their receipt or refund, it was only a click away,” says Tran.

SalesVu iPad POS System helps Experience Life Now track inventory across multiple locations

Experience Life (EL) is a non-denominational Christian church in Lubbock, Texas. After being founded by Chris Galanos in 2007, the church has grown to an average weekly attendance of over 3,500 people. This establishment is one of only two churches in the Lubbock/Amarillo area that has been certified by the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability. Outreach Magazine has also recognized them for being one of the fastest growing churches in the country. Experience Life has five physical campuses in the Lubbock/Amarillo area and 2 digital campuses that can be viewed on local TV station KLBK or on the Experience Life website.

“At Experience Life, our vision is our name. We want to help people experience all God has for them in this life!” explains Phil Gilbert, HR director. “We believe that you can experience God’s best in your life no matter what your past or present looks like. At Experience Life, there are no perfect people allowed!”

Across EL’s multiple campuses, they provide discounted books and t-shirts for their church attendees. As their fellowship continued to grow, they realized they would need an inventory-based POS system that could support credit card processing.

“We noticed that few people carried cash or checks anymore,” says Gilbert. “So if we wanted to really serve people as much as possible, we needed to provide more common means of payment.”

After using Square for about a year, EL felt they needed a POS system that could provide better inventory features. As a business, EL was growing faster than ever and wanted a way to ensure none of their products were getting lost. They considered Quickbooks and Paypal before switching to SalesVu.

“An important feature that Square was lacking was the inventory tracking side. We needed a program that would help us track inventory by site for a low fee,” says Gilbert. “SalesVu fit the bill & has helped us to monitor our inventory more closely.”

SalesVu’s inventory tracking has helped EL better serve their church community by making sure that products are always available when they’re needed. They’ve saved a significant amount in man-hours now that they don’t have to recount the entire inventory on a weekly basis, and still they can remain confident that they will never run out of products.

“We needed a low-cost, cloud-based solution that was simple & easy to use,” says Gilbert. “We also needed a product that tracked inventory, and this is what set SalesVu apart from others we looked at.”

SalesVu’s retail POS has helped EL seamlessly track their sales and inventory across three separate locations. They can now easily see trends by church site and monitor loss prevention.

SalesVu’s iPad POS System 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.

The Silver Diva Chooses SalesVu’s iPad POS System 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.

Quick Product Addition, Inventory Management and Customer History in SalesVu iPad POS SystemMake 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.

Welcome to SalesVu, Joy Craft & Design

Who is Joy Craft & Design?

Joy Craft & Design (JCD), a curated shop in Springdale, Utah that specializes in upcycled, restyled and handcrafted items, has opted for SalesVu’s retail POS! The shop’s collection consists of items that Owner Joy Stein curates herself as well as some of her friends’ treasures to broaden the collection. Stein specializes in upcycling t-shirts into reverse applique skirts, felted soaps and decorative plate stands from tea sets and other found items. The community has added live plants, hand-printed cards, collaged art from vintage story books and zipper jewelry.

Why SalesVu?

As a first-time business owner, Stein had no previous experience with POS systems. She asked around her small community and found that other businesses, such as a local coffee shop and a guide service and outfitter, were using SalesVu. Stein also researched Square, PayPal, ShopKeep and traditional leasing equipment from the bank. Previously, she had used PayPal at craft fairs but preferred the SalesVu iPad POS pricing structure.

“I opted for SalesVu because it seemed on the whole easy to use and relatively straightforward,” said Stein. “I needed something that would give me reports, inventory and a credit card system.”

So far, Stein has found the inventory system and input easy to understand and is pleased with the deposit turnaround time.
