Country Porch Winery wishes they have known about SalesVu iPad POS System and Employee Schedulling years ago.

Country Porch Winery started a winery business in a large warehouse north of Cortland,Ohio by teaching wine making, selling homemade wine supplies, and starting their own winery. Wine, cookouts, and great music from local bands, Cortland Wine Cellar enjoyed a busy and fun five plus years of business. They met and made new friends and customers all while planing the perfect location for their winery. Country Porch Winery has been a work in progress for many years after joining the wine industry in 2006 and SalesVu iPad POS System is proud to be the official credit card processing system that helps them accomplish their goals and drive sales.
Debbie Belts and Sheila Fisher are the co-owners of D&she Inc. Who set out to find a location for their own winery to open in 2012.
“As small business entrepreneurs for 17 years running a fulfilling shipping company a MYO wine store along with a farm produce and antique market,  we knew we would need a good POS system to take care of their front counter, relay information to the kitchen and staff, take care of their customer needs and maintain their inventory, along with capturing all of that information in an easy to use format.”
The fit came naturally when in 2012,Sheila, the office “techie”, did some research and found SalesVu iPad POS System.
“The current POS systems available on the market are just not complete enough. We had previously used a standalone accounting POS system that was cumbersome and time consuming, but after reviewing and demoing several POS systems that were specifically designed for the wine industry Sheila sought out the options of a more updated system using iPads and the cloud as interactive solutions.  It was at this time she found SalesVu along with several other cloud-based POS systems.”
Country Porch Winery told us that upon demoing and reading the SalesVu iPad POS System customer reviews and industry based comments, they tried to teach the other owners and staff  that SalesVu was exactly the system she was looking for that it exceeded their needs and expectations
“Currently, we are using SalesVu iPad POS System on two iPads with a kitchen and receipt printing along with customer information and inventory modules.  It is really easy to ring customers out assisting them with their orders, reviewing their items and printing everything in the kitchen. At the end of the day, employee management and scheduling on the online clock goes on, and of course, the most important tool, the statistical and financial reporting  has made SalesVu invaluable to our small business.  We are looking to grow with SalesVu and the industry. All I can say is I wish I found SalesVu years ago for the other businesses I owned and managed!”
And we look forward to see you thriving too!

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.

Their light-hearted circus theme embodies the fun, authenticity, and creativity of this deep-rooted craft.

“We are a production brewery in Western North Carolina. We have been in business for a year and a half. Our beer has grown enormously  in popularity. The reception to all of our beers to-date has been fantastic. With 300-400% growth in our first year and a half. SalesVu brewery POS has been an active participant in our growth and expansion.”

We asked Adam why they needed a POS and why they decided to go with a high-end POS like SalesVu, instead of a traditional one.

“We have a tasting room, open 7 days a week. We receive all of our clients who come and try our beers. It is a really great social event full of great interactions between our staff and people’s friends. Due to the increasing demand, we stay open late on weekends. SalesVu is important for us because it helps us keep open bar tab management, which maintains every account organized and receipts in order.”

SalesVu is helpful everywhere Hi-Wire goes. Mobility and portability are additional advantages we offer to all. Adam told us that:

“We strive to provide the best possible service to all our clients. Everytime we assist to local food and drink festivals we want to serve not only the highest quality of beer, but also a comfortable and  reliable payment method so that everyone ends up happy. We can take payments with cell phones, like our own iPhone’s or iPads.”

SalesVu worries about  becoming better and brighter every day. This 2015 we will keep raising the bar even higher and continue helping all our members grow. Like we do for Adam.

“Inventory Management is Why I Love SalesVu iPad POS System so Much”

NSlogo102312

Northern Sun Winery is an estate grown winery located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Everything in their wine bottles is grown on site. The business includes a tasting room, a small gift shop and hosting events such as weddings.  They can also deliver their wines! They use SalesVu inventory management and simply love it for its convenience and simplicity. Northern Sun winery thinks inventory management is among the top features of SalesVu.

 “We needed a mobile POS system because our tasting room does not have phone or Wi-Fi service.  We are located in a desolate location.   We also can deliver our product to stores or customers, this way I can ring their sale on site accepting cash, check or credit card.  It is very convenient for our customers increasing their satisfaction.”
 

We talked to the business owner, Susan Anthony and she gave us her opinion about the SalesVu inventory management system. For Susan, flexibility and lower credit card transaction rates were a must when searching for a business management solution.

 
“SalesVu is my first POS system and feel very lucky I got the best.It is hard to pick out a favorite thing, it’s like looking at a picture and picking out one subject.  The whole thing is great.That being said I like that it keeps track of my inventory, COGS, taxes.  Taxes are huge because I need to really keep on top of that not only on the state, but also on the federal level.  I also really like that I can easily obtain my monthly sales of wine for filing purposes.  I can break the sales down by time, day or month.”

According to Susan, SalesVu has helped Northern Sun Winery substantially. She says they can now accept credit cards, thus they can make each of their clients feel more comfortable with the transactions. Cold, hard and old cash is a thing of the past. Now everytime she gets foreign customers, SalesVu is perfect for their payment selection.

“SalesVu is priceless. What I paid for it has returned in so many ways to my business. SalesVu inventory management has given me comfort, tranquility, automation, and more importantly customer satisfaction.I must say that I tried the Quickbooks integration a year ago; however, I am not planning on using it this winter.”

The smartest choice is SalesVu iPad POS System for Seminar Brewering

unnamed-2

Seminar Brewing LLC is a partnership of three brewers: Bryan Fisher, Travis Knowles and John Mathias, along with business partner and project manager Dave Peters. They have created an exciting standard tap list, along with a solid reservoir of recipes for special releases and seasonal ales.Seminar is a microbrewery specializing in high quality, hand-crafted ales.Never has it ever been so much fresh, exciting and local craft beer being produced. Seminar Brewing is a proud user of SalesVu restaurant POS.

“We operate a tasting room within our brewery. The space doubles as brew space, so our restaurant POS needed to be mobile and able to be packed away when not in use. In addition, we participate in beer festivals where merchandise sales are encouraged. A mobile POS solution allows us to process credit and debit cards on the go.”

Seminar Brewing  considered as other options Square, ShopKeep, and NCR Silver, but chose SalesVu over all because of its broad range of features, simple and the easy organization of the interface. They told us about the immense advantage of having an open tab management within SalesVu restaurant POS.

“Creating open tabs for our customers is easy, and viewing or reviewing sales activity is simple. It’s easy to get a daily sales summary and sales breakdown by category; we make a bank deposit for the cash portion the next morning. Credit card deposits in Quickbooks are made only when they are posted to the bank account, so we use a spreadsheet to track credit card deposits.”

SalesVu gives Seminar the ability to process credit and debit card transactions without any barriers to customer spending. The “only cash” sign has been removed while ago!

 “SalesVu restaurant POS also allow us to track tasting room sales of different products. Although we haven’t calculated the exact breakdown of money saved upfront, we know that the other products’ combined costs of the restaurant software solution, plus card processing fees, were much higher.

Seminar Brewery has not yet tried SalesVu Quickbooks integration nor the Ecommerce feature, but they look forward to try them in the near future and expand the reach of SalesVu restaurant POS benefits.

logo

Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 6.38.12 PM

 

SalesVu Mobile POS has given the unique artisans of liquor of the Sugar House Distillery another reason to be an unique and modern establishment. We talked with the business owner, James Fowler who told us about the singular characteristics of their handcrafted spirits. According to them, they are “The Ultimate legacy to the Culture of Small Batch, handcrafted spirits connoisseurs”. Located in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Sugar House is one of the few privately-owned locals that enjoy a permit to sell alcohol in the region.  Their undeniable quality has awarded them with loyal customers who attend to their local to purchase the delicatessen beverages. According to James:

 

“Our products are hand crafted in Salt Lake City Utah. Our Vodka is our most popular product and the one we have been producing since long time ago.  During this Holiday Season, we will have the release of a 100% pure malt Whisky and we are  working on parallel project also developing high quality Rum”

David told us about the expanding plan of becoming also a gift shop offering hats and t-shirts, so definitely Sugar House Distillery  is doing great on sales, and SalesVu mobile POS system has helped them develop into what they are now.

 ” As a  startup company we chose SalesVu first among other competitors because we received good referrals from other people in the industry and because it is really simple to use. SalesVu mobile POS prices were also important in taking the decision, in contrast with competitors, like Square, SalesVu mobile POS offers lower credit card transaction cost. Additionally, it is very convenient to have a tablet on the front. As a company, SalesVu mobile POS places us on the edge of technology and makes our store look modern and updated in regards of the current trends in the market.”

We asked David about the Quickbooks feature SalesVu mobile POS offers to small businesses and he told us:

” I have not used it yet, but I am going to be messing around with it in a couple of weeks. Certainly, I will be using it in the near future. My accountants have been using SalesVu reports already where they can picture all the information together in one place.”

SalesVu’s iPad POS System allows Treasure Coast Seltzer Works to operate entirely on delivery trucks!

seltzer-color-logo copy

Treasure Coast Seltzer Works (TCSW) is one of only four bottling companies in the country who specialize in old-bottled seltzer. TCSW delivers their quality product directly to their customers’ door, and then collects the empty bottles that have been left out for them. This milk-man style delivery process requires a mobile POS system that can operate on a delivery truck, for which TCSW has chosen SalesVu.

We caught up with TCSW owner Ryan Pinnell as he was on the way back from a delivery route. When asked about TCSW’s experience with SalesVu, Pinnell opened right up with “We literally could not operate our business without it, hands down!”

TCSW chose SalesVu because of the ability to modify the software to work the way they needed it to. Pinnell says that running SalesVu-generated reports has saved him 85 hours per month in billing labor.

“The recency report saves me thousands of dollars just in the reporting suite,” he says, “It comes down to this: you need something for the backbone of your business. [SalesVu] is literally priceless to me now.”

Before switching to SalesVu, TCSW was using Square but found themselves greatly frustrated by technical support and lack of necessary business management tools. “You can’t talk to anyone at Square,” tells Pinnell. “[SalesVu’s] technical support team is amazing!”

Pinnell has been so pleased with the capabilities of his iPad POS, he has integrated more of SalesVu’s business management features like our easy accounting software and our ecommerce website for online sales.

“Everything is fluid. Very simple. Not a hard program to use,” he explains, “SalesVu gives you just enough of what you need without all the junk. Out of the box you have a web platform and the ecommerce website has a simple setup!”

When asked what he liked most about SalesVu, Pinnell says he enjoys the fact that he can run his whole company through SalesVu’s iPad POS. “I can pick any iPad, go anywhere in the world and see everything that’s going on in the business” he says.

“We are a visionary company and [SalesVu] has molded our business to be 100% mobile!” says Pinnell.

We thank Ryan Pinnell and TCSW for their continued loyalty, we have thoroughly enjoyed serving and growing with them over the past few years. For more information on Treasure Coast Seltzer works visit their website, or any of the social media links below.

Open tab management on SalesVu’s iPad POS System at New Republic Brewing Co!

NRB

New Republic Brewing Company (NRB) is a brewery in College Station, Texas that serves quality brewed beer in their on-site Taproom.

“We have a couple of kegerators where we serve the beers we brew here at the brewery,” explains founder John Januskey. “We typically have live music and food trucks to provide something to eat while customers enjoy beer and music.”

After using Square and an external credit card reader for some time, NRB found themselves looking for a more well-rounded business management solution that would allow them to regulate tabs for customers. Though they had used Square for some time, they also researched Micros and OPos before making their decision to switch.

NRB chose SalesVu’s iPad POS not only for tab management but also for the “low cost of entry and better features than the alternatives.”

NRB’s Taproom enjoys being able to share tabs between devices. It’s very convenient for them to be able to open a tab and then give the customer’s credit card back to them.

“A full POS like Micros was so far out of our budget it wasn’t a real option,” says Januskey, “We would have stuck with Square over Micros, but SalesVu has much better features for a bar.”

NRB also used SalesVu to build an ecommerce website through which they could sell tickets online for their 3rd anniversary party.
