Also, a customer’s favorite is ‘the flavor bar’, where they can sit and have snacks, juices and a great time!

 

Before starting their journey with SalesVu, Bonnie and Harley were using Clover POS, but they didn’t have a great experience since the system was too confusing and customer service/support was not good.

<br>

“We saw SalesVu was a new software, and it seems to be the easiest and most straight forward. It is simply the best option!”

Harley told us that with SalesVu he is using the POS functionality that allows him to sell his products, create discounts and promotions, complete transactions and run all type of reports. The fact that those reports can be pulled up per location, makes it easier for him to manage the two stores, they can easily compare their sales and manage the business remotely.

Another great module that Butz has, is the Loyalty Program. He is able to set up the percentage he wants his customers to earn and the amount they have to unlock before using the ‘loyalty cash’. This feature has definitely helped with the reporting part, he can easily keep track of customers and check their purchase history, remaining balance and check how much they’re spending. This tool has been really helpful for both locations in order to grow simultaneously.

SalesVu iPad POS and Ecommerce Website are very handy for The Galley

10320504_1495102310702243_955681085221707296_n 10462957_1504537586425382_6924010000211684299_n

Located in Downtown New Smyrna Beach, The Galley is a locally owned shop and it is the place to go for all your culinary needs.  Their premium infused oils and vinegars delight any pallet and take each cooking experience to a whole new level. The Galley sells  Ultra premium Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar as well as cooking and entertaining accessories. Business owner Cathy Jones told us that there are about 40 flavors of vinegar al oil, and that all are available at The Galley. The store and gourmet boutique allows the consumers to “taste” before they buy​ so they know and like the flavor before they buy it.

At the moment they are using the iPad POS System and the Ecommerce Website, which is recently a new SalesVu module they acquired. Cathy Jones, the business owner, told us that SalesVu iPad POS System is the first one she had ever used and she feels very satisfied with it. The Galley is about to turn a year enjoying our services in June 2014.


“At the beginning I looked at Quick-Books and Shopkeep, but they were both expensive and bulky or worse, too pushy for our taste. SalesVu is easy to understand and user friendly. It is not a bulky POS since having an iPad is practical and common.”

 

Cathy also said that:

“My favorite feature is the fact that SalesVu is wireless. For me, the less components to deal with, the better, especially when finalizing the purchases.”

Cathy told us that she was able to reduce the cost of goods and better manage the suppliers of the products after she was able to figure how to correctly use the inventory management feature, and place the data of the oil and vinegar measures  on it.

As for the ECommerce Website module, Cathy told us that she is fairly new in understanding how it works, but that she likes it and sees the potential it has for her business.

Ubuntu Cafe and Bakery baked something great with SalesVu iPad POS System

10544312_728758047171637_714635283346035699_n

A mother and a daughter in a small rural town in Manitoba, Canada opened a coffee shop and bakery a year ago. Located in a new library in Slkirk, they converted the basement of their house into a small bakery that supplies the coffee shop with freshly baked goods. Ubuntu Café and Bakery is an independent coffee shop with espresso-based drinks, treats and coffee made with a V-60 pour-over machine. They also offer vintage teas served with bone china, starched white linens, etc. These details set Ubuntu Café and Bakery apart from the rest. It has been a reason why the place has gained so much popularity and now book customers with 3 weeks in advance. Ubuntu Café and Bakery started building a strong customer base early on, selling artisan bread in local Farmer’s Market. Additionally, they became a catering business due to the numerous meetings that develop within the library’s rooms.

We wanted to know why they needed an iPad POS solution and why they choose SalesVu.

“It was more the low cost and simplicity of SalesVu that were the deciding factors. In the future we may be using SalesVu at the markets. We considered that the need for the mobile feature was secondary in our decision-making (up to now we only did cash sales at the markets).”

About the unique propositions SalesVu gives to small business owners in the US and abroad the iPad POS low cost, ease of use, and the possibility to use debit cards were determinant in deciding for SalesVu.

“ The use of debit cards for payments was one of the big reasons, that along with speed of payment for credit card transactions, ease of entering new products, and remote accessibility.”

Ubuntu Café and Bakery opened their doors in January 2014 relying in SalesVu iPad POS system to process payments; however, in their planning phase they got quotes for a tailor-made POS system.”

“Besides from the accessibility and easy payments, we really like the online billing (for catering orders) We demand cash on delivery, and with Salesvu I can send the invoice in advance – and some customers even pay the invoice online before they pick up their orders. I have to say that my customers like the ease and security of the online payment with a credit card using SalesVu platform”.

Business owner Anna told us that Ubuntu Café and Bakery enjoys the quick payments. She told us, it is a major plus.

“It is the ease with which we can add products. We can decide to for instance, make bourbon French macarons for tomorrow, and would enter the macarons onto the iPad POS through our website account just before delivery.”

SalesVu iPad POS offers very reasonable rates for small business owners who are conscious of the importance of savings.

“We were quoted $15,000 for the hardware and software for a conventional POS system. The set-up cost for SalesVu was buying the IPad, printer, IPad stand, external credit card (debit card) and card reader for that debit card – costing us no more that $1,000. So – we easily saved $14,000”

There are few things in life that can be compared to the pleasure of a good book and great quality coffee, add the unique silence of a library and freshly baked treats, and voila! You find Ubuntu Café and Bakery. Don’t miss out the opportunity to connect with this honest coffee shop and visit their website and social media pages to find out more about them.

SalesVu iPad POS and the open tab feature are vital for Darryl’s Couch

992979_268090499999980_117316870_n

Darryl’s Couch is Ventura County’s premier craft beer pub, featuring 11 rotating taps of exclusively craft beer along with an ever-evolving bottle list of over 30 beer selections. At Darryl’s they understand the passion for brewing and in the uniqueness of every sip of the golden liquid. The pub was first attracted to SalesVu because of the ability to open tabs for customers; a feature that is essential for operating efficiently a successful bar.

“We wanted a solution with an integrated credit card system that was easy for our staff to use, with a small device footprint, which allowed us to open tabs for customers while providing back office reports that were meaningful. Having a cloud-based service was desirable since we didn’t really have space for full sized system and data storage. “

Business owner Darryl told us that:

“I had seen other products that didn’t have the open tab feature which would have required us to write down orders and ring them in all at once at the end of the transaction. Looking further into the system I was also attracted to the merchant service rates, contract terms, and the application’s ability to track inventory and employee hours.”

Before SalesVu iPad POS, they were using a standard cash register that was purchased at the time of acquiring the business. He told us that under the traditional system, they were able to track PLU code, but that’s a great disadvantage was that the reports were only shown in the register tape.

Darryl considered other POS competitors, but he felt they were either too big of to expensive for what he was really looking for. Darryl also says that among his favorite features the finds that:

“The ability to open tabs is great. It allows us to easily and electronically keep track of a customer’s purchase during their visit. Inventory tracking is another great feature. The system will keep track of the number of servings we pour and alert management and staff when a product is near to running out. This is incredibly helpful when pouring beer from taps and you can’t see the quantity remaining in a keg. We’ve been able to easily track sales, see margin reports, simplify tracking staff hours, and anticipate ordering new inventory. “

We also talked about money and asked him how much money did they save upfront and ongoing using SalesVu. They answered

“We estimate that we save on average $50 each month over our previous merchant services, but the time savings that we now have by allowing our staff access to an easy to use interface, and management’s access to SalesVu’s backed reporting and management system are immeasurable.”

Good crafted beer, friends and a comfortable environment motivate Darryl’s Couch in providing an upscale service. Definitely, they are a must-go place for relaxing with a cold one.
