Lone Star Kolaches (LSK) was founded ten years ago by Massey and Allen Wallace. This Austin, Texas bakery specializes in “those delicious Czech pastries known as kolaches.” Today, you can pick up these delectable treats at any of LSK’s six locations – all of which are fully integrated with SalesVu’s iPad POS software.
Before switching to SalesVu, LSK used standalone cash registers that were “very archaic.” They considered a few other restaurant POS solutions but after an excellent recommendation from a local coffee shop, they chose SalesVu because of the many features offered and low cost of getting started.
“Switching from the old style cash registers to a mobile POS system was a no brainer,” says Allen Wallace, “Besides being more user friendly with the cashiers, the ability to run reports and track sales from the home office has improved the efficiency of our organization tenfold.”
Wallace’s favorite SalesVu feature is the multi-location management report. He finds it very convenient to be able to track sales per location as well as sales per product – then easily export that data to an excel spreadsheet.
These reports have given the Wallace family “better eyes” to see which products are selling best and which are not. It has also greatly improved their efficiency in managing the menus for their six different locations.
Whenever they run into technical trouble, Wallace says kindness and patience of SalesVu’s support staff has been a “godsend.”
“Thomas is always there when we need him and he’s demonstrated enormous patience dealing with a couple of computer illiterates like us.”
Although they aren’t able to generate an exact figure on their savings, Wallace says that the credit card processing rates with Mercury Payment Systems and the POS solution with SalesVu is “definitely less money than a lot of the competition.”
We are thrilled for the opportunity to continue to provide LSK with the exceptional business management software they require to run their business.
