Technology arrives at the Falcon Ridge Farm in the form SalesVu iPad POS

LogoFRF

 

Falcon Ridge is a family owned and operated farm located in the beautiful rolling hills of west Tennessee. Expanded throughout 250 acres, they specialize in growing fresh food and fun. There are over 40 different fruits and vegetables grown at Falcon Ridge.  Some of the favorites include strawberries, tomatoes, blueberries, blackberries, kale and sweet corn.  Falcon Ridge grows, harvests and retails everything that is grown on the farm.  They sell some of their fresh produce to farmer’s markets and have open their gates to the public to provide ole fashion family fun. The farm also hosts school field trips, family reunions and picnics.

SalesVu team asked them why they felt the need of obtaining a POS solution. They told us that their main reason was because they conduct business in several locations and needed an easier and more effective system to keep track of their sales.

 

“We chose SalesVu because it was recommended by a friend. We were not using any POS system before SalesVu. You are the first ones and we are happy to have reached that decision.  We used to register everything we sold in notepads and old cash registers. In regards of other POS systems that we considered, I honestly do not recall the others, but I do remember most of them had a monthly fee which I didn’t want and did not like”

 

We wanted to know what were the favorite things they liked about SalesVu and also any other experiences they wanted to share with us about their trajectory using our services.

 

“One of the things I like the most about SalesVu is how easy is to operate it, and the ability to keep records effortlessly. The old cash registers we used were confusing to operate and we had a hard time training new employees to use them correctly. With SalesVu, anyone that can adequately operate a smartphone can learn SalesVu’s system within minutes.  This is important because we are a seasonal retail operation and have a high turnover of employees.  Record keeping is something we are continually trying to improve.  SalesVu had enabled our ability to leap forward from pen and paper ledgers to digital records, and to reports that are available 24/7 from your smartphone or computer. This has helped us run a more efficient business.”

 

SalesVu has helped Falcon Ridge by transforming the employee training into an easier experience.

 

“SalesVu iPad POS system is intuitive and easy to catch., We can keep better and more accessible records. The fact that SalesVu is portable lets us conduct business anywhere at anytime. I think we have probably saved a couple hundred dollars up front and $50 a month by using SalesVu instead of another monthly fee based POS.”

Funky Pearl Boutique said accounting and bookkeeping with SalesVu iPad POS System is easy and fast!

10530684_646077185500165_796095022248931496_n

 

Funky Pearl Boutique is a lower-end Boutique with same trends as higher-end boutiques. Proudly selling fashions of sizes Small through 3XL, along with shoes, accessories and home decorations.  The Boutique is one shop that values  customer relations and expectations and SalesVu and inventory system and easy accounting features had been used to help Funky Pearl boutique achieve short and long term goals and, of course, keep clients happy!

 

“I originally opened the Boutique for fun and to meet new people in the area while proposing a small business in a small community in which I live. I wanted to broaden social interaction outside the area from where I come, in order to bring new people to the town.  I held a career in banking for many years until I was a stay at home mom for four years, then decided to open a Boutique, not only because it’s fun for me, but our small town needs it, our people need it and it’s a great way to keep small town shopping local.”

 

We asked Funky Pearl Boutique’s owner Billie Kelley why she chose a mobile POS system and not a traditional one. She mentioned that convenience for customers was a number one priority, and that SalesVu credit card swipper has converted every transaction in something easy and interactive.

 

“Nowadays, it’s more convenient for people to swipe a debit or credit card and go.  It is the safest way to get money other than cash.  Checks are not a safe way to do business anymore, so I chose to use a POS system for convenience to myself and to my customers.  I do not take checks, so it was convenient to offer more than one payment solution when selling merchandise”

 

Billie told us that the main reason to choose SalesVu was because we offered the best choices for new, and small business owners who are concerned with the expenses and accountability of their profits.

 

” SalesVu offered free monthly service, low rates and a great Sales Reports. This last one is very important to me and my accountant.   The convenience of having my reports all put together for me at the end of the month for free was great. I feel SalesVu was a wise decision because of the time I have saved with it.”

 

Billie also told us that she has used SalesVu since the day she opened Funky Pearl Boutique on June 12th, 2013.  She is definitely not thinking about trying another system because SalesVu has been what she needed so far. Also, she considers that the system could become even better and looks forward for more updates and additional options.

 

“My favorite things of SalesVu, well, I have a couple. The first thins is I like is the inventory descriptions and the second is the Sales Reports, as I mentioned before.  The inventory descriptions are nice because you can detail your merchandise out to describe what was purchased on receipts so customers can see their purchases itemized.  I also like the Sales Reports sincee you can see what you’ve sold between a certain time frame, detailed in before taxes, after taxes, with and without discounts, etc.  This is significant to me in how much I’m doing in promotions and every month.”

“SalesVu has The Cool Factor” says Distinctive Gardens about our retail iPad POS System.

 logo

spring3-basket-d860afd30b

Distinctive Gardens garden center has been in business since 1999 offering a rich variety of plants, garden gifts, landscape design services, and local artist gallery.  Greenhouses filled with unusual annuals, perennials and vegetable plants, outdoor display beds. The business hosts yearly benefit festivals, such as the popular “Gardenstock Art & Music Festival.” Distinctive Gardens decided to implement a mobile POS solution because mainly their customers shop for plants inside the greenhouses.

 

“The ability to ring up purchases right there where they stand creates a streamlined and customer-friendly experience. Our community projects require ringing credit cards outside. Being off location at trade shows or at farmer’s markets makes having a reliable mobile POS a key to help increase sales, efficiency and bolster community projects.”

 

They spent over a year researching a variety of mobile POS solutions. While many offered appealing aspects, none encompassed the breadth of features contained within SalesVu.

 

We have been using SalesVu long enough to see it evolve over time. We used this system for two years as a stand-alone mobile solution before deciding to integrate it as our primary POS within our brick and mortar store. Development is clearly a priority for this company. The base infrastructure of their system is solid and the fine-tuning of software that continues has only increased its ease of use and expanded versatility.”

 

For Distinctive Gardens every feature SalesVu presents important business functionalities that are crucial for the success of their services here are some examples:

 

 “ In regards of Integrated Inventory, We wanted to develop an online presence without having to run two sets of inventory and maintain two different systems. SalesVu allows us to manage products from one convenient cloud-based location for both our brick and mortar store and eCommerce. “

 

They also added that the Quickbooks Integration SalesVu all-in-one business solution works with their current accounting system. For the most part, Distinctive Gardens was satisfied with the integration. They understand the complexity required in integrating with a piece of software that has been notorious for making it difficult for third party integration.

 

 “Additionally, we know that we are using a solid and reliable hardware selection SalesVu system is paired with fantastic hardware partners. The barcode scanner selection is outstanding, simple and reliable. The credit card reader is stable and dependable.  In the same way, the overall system stability as a cloud-based system that is stable is imperative. SalesVu servers are fast, consistent and in our entire experience we have yet to experience one single server malfunction. Incredible.”

 

Currently, Distinctive Gardens is in the process of expanding their brand reach and offer an online experience. SalesVu system is an integral aspect of that project. They are in the early stages of developing an eCommerce channel and testing various seasonal online stores that contain curated products from inventory.

 “We tested our first store last November. Through our Holiday Online store we sold fresh made wreaths and saw promising results.The integrated eCommerce solution is fantastic. Historically, we operate primarily as a local brick and mortar store and run occasional pop-up shops throughout the year. Last year during Gardenstock, we premiered a documentary on the festival, Gardenstock: For Community, and sold it as an additional fundraiser.  Before, during and after, SalesVu eCommerce helped that project’s success by extending reach.”

 

For Distinctive Gardens the credit card processing platform SalesVu offer is a key area. If you decide to do some research about how most small business owners think they will say that some operating systems make navigating the ambiguous waters of the credit card merchant industry a real nightmare.

 “SalesVu system sets itself apart from many in their credit card processing system. They have partnered with banks and negotiated rates in order to be able to offer their customers an incredibly competitive product in the area of credit card processing. Even more, they handle PCI compliance, a huge headache-saver and game-changer in and of itself. The rate is flat. The PCI compliance handled. The statement is clear. Safety, security, predictability, competitive rates and transparency, what else is there?”

 

Among Distinctive Gardens favorites features is the iPad/iPhone App Interface which is really easy to navigate and according to them, is very intuitive since training personnel has been quick and easy, saving them time and of course money.

 

 The transition from our old gift card system to SalesVu was a snap. We imported all the current outstanding balances into SalesVu, and never missed a beat in transacting gift cards. SalesVu has The Cool Factor. I don’t know how many times since its implementation, it has been the topic of conversation during check out gravitated to the POS itself. Customers are impressed with the technology, which reflects well on us. They enjoy the touchscreen experience and think its cool.”

 

Don’t miss out the opportunity to support Distinctive Gardens with their Gardenstock Documentary. Each year in August, “Gardenstock Art & Music Festival” is held on Distinctive Gardens grounds.  Proceeds from their festival benefit an area non-profit, Sinnissippi Center’s Youth Garden Program. This is a great initiative and a benefit for a community project .

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!

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.

 unnamed

“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.
