SALESVU POS PRODUCT ENHANCEMENTS TO
Here is a summary of the latest SalesVu product features and improvements we launched recently based on your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts on these as well as other features you might want to see in upcoming releases.
PICKUP & DELIVERY
√ ASAP order-ahead option for Pickup & Delivery
We continue to make pickup and delivery as easy as possible for your customers and for you. Of course, online ordering takes away the need to call a restaurant and place an order during a busy lunch or dinner rush.
For some time now, we have had schedule-ahead pickup and prepay features available.
In our October release, we added Curbside Pickup as a new option, in addition to in-store pickup. When ordering ahead, customers choose a preferred pickup day and time for pickup.
We’ve now added an ASAP option. The feature is live for E-commerce as well as on Android apps. It can also be added to your iOS branded app once submitted and approved via the Apple App store.
Let us know if you’d like us to turn this option on for your site.
√ Chowly Delivery Integration | Ready for Beta Customers
We have implemented an integration with the delivery service, Chowly. We are ready for beta testers to begin using the service integration with SalesVu beginning in January.
If you are interested in being an early adopter of this delivery service, please contact our service or sales team.

Diners want to be safe when they enjoy their favorite venues again.
Now they can. QR-code ordering and payment enables a fully contactless dining experience.

√ See Customer Notes at Time of Booking | Appointment Calendar
You can see customer notes taken when an appointment was scheduled. These could be special requests or essential preferences communicated by your client that you need to know when you provide the service. This can make all the difference between delivering a great experience and one which leaves your customer feeling unheard and angry..
√ Type-ahead search bar | Appointment Calendar
Sometimes you just need to find what you’re looking for fast, especially when booking an appointment with a client in front of you or on the phone.
Some of our customers have long lists of products or services. They can now locate the service they want to book with a type-ahead search bar now available in the web portal. The search acts as a real-time filter as you type, helping you find the right thing in real-time. That means less stress for you and your staff and less wait time for your clients.
Coming soon to the Welcome app.
√ Add Employee Name in Close Out Report
Do you ever want to know who submitted a particular Close Out Report? You might like to know. Now you can see who it was. Well, not much more explanation is needed for this one. This small enhancement makes sense, so we added the information to this report.
