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”

Red Onion Spice & Tea Company are merchants of high quality spices, loose leaf tea and gourmet salts. Catering to the chef that lives within all of us, they specialize in offering custom spice blends. They offer original tea blends using only the best quality loose teas. Their products are primarily organic and maintain rigorous quality control to bring out the best flavors in all our dishes. Red Onion & Spice Tea Company have high  standards, reason why they have chosen to use SalesVu retail POS !

“Our business started online in 2010 with our first store opening in Juneau, Alaska in 2012, We’re a small business run by three staff and me, the business owner. We pack each internet order item fresh as it’s ordered, and in-store we offer both bulk and items that we pre-pack.  I can’t tell you how nice it is to have customers who walk into the store happy, and leave happy! Our town has a small selection of restaurants to choose from, so there are lots of experienced ‘closet chefs’ in town. We ship all across the country and Canada as well and are proud of our reputation that we have built.”

We asked Kathy Jones why they needed to obtain a mobile POS system and why from all the options, they decided for SalesVu retail POS. They told us that even being the business owner of a small retail shop, the challenges and problems they faced were very significant and large.

” I work another full time job and can’t be at the shop during the day. My other job also requires that I travel – and I take vacations away as well.  This means I need to be able to manage my business wherever I go, and at home in the evenings. Reason why I needed to be able to handle Red Onion & Spice & Tea Company affairs from everywhere I went. SalesVu retail POS did it all and charged a simple and reasonable rate for credit card transactions”

Kathy told us that businesses are very complex enough and that she really appreciates the ease of use of  SalesVu. She believes the inventory management feature and the invoice management one are extremely reliable and adequate for Red Onions Spice & Tea Company

“It tracks our employee’s hours, the POS has an easy interface to learn and use, and most important, it handles our inventory – which can be fairly complex. I can easily manage and balance deposits as I receive email reports when a shift closes out. I can add new products or make corrections from home and while I travel, and a simple refresh at the POS instantly shows the new information. Staff can view what is on order so they can communicate to our customers when an item is expected back in stock. The web interface is also easy to use. As businesses are complex enough, I appreciate the ease of use.”

Before SalesVu Kathy used paper and spreadsheet, not even a traditional POS that helped her keep track electronically of the purchases. What a change it has been for Kathy! An important upgrade to modern payments with SalesVu retail POS and inventory management tool. She told us that from all the POS options in the market, several other products required a major cash investment in software and online services that they just couldn’t afford.

“One of my favorite things about SalesVu is that it’s so intuitive to use. We have to train quite a few staff and not having to explain the POS system is a big help in getting new staff up and running in no time. Another favorite item is the inventory and flexible product listings. Most of our items in stock are kept in small quantities in order to maintain freshness, so having an accurate inventory at my fingertips wherever I go has been of major importance to us.”

If you think your culinary skills require a little spice-up touch or you really want to immerse in an aromatic journey with tea infusions, be sure to contact Red Onion Spice & Tea Company and visit their website and social media accounts.

477362_265060970243147_45195151_o

Arizona Livescan provides quality fingerprinting services utilizing the industry’s most effective and innovative way to capture fingerprints electronically. We talked to Paula Wilson, one of the business owners, and got a chance to understand this very important service provider. We talked about the advantages of owning SalesVu POS System and credit card processing, and she told us why they choose SalesVu,  

 “Through our mobile fingerprinting service, Arizona Livescan fingerprints hundreds of employees and students on-site in their businesses, organizations and schools. We wanted an easy solution to accept credit cards for our mobile fingerprinting customers. Sales Vu provided the best solution for a small (but growing) business with multiple fingerprinting locations and offices throughout the State of Arizona.”

 Paula told us also that SalesVu POS and credit card processing system is very well developed and has a very simple and clear interface that gives them, and their customers, a very easy and convenient transaction experience.

“It’s easy! Our fingerprinting customers, especially love signing the POS with their fingertip. It always makes for a good laugh. Also, we find the employee functions like clocking in and out make payroll reporting really easy, too. SalesVu’s POS is so easy for our employees to use, it helps them to focus more on customer service. Swiping, sign and email receipts is effortless. Our fingerprint technicians can focus on the people, our customers, rather than the technology.”

Paula told us that as a business professional, and a customer-satisfaction oriented company, their main interest is to keep the company growing and save the most in unwanted expenses. SalesVu proved to be an incredibly helpful and money saving tool to Arizona LiveScan.

“With Sales Vu there is no cost up front and that helped tremendously. Typically, POS systems cost thousands of dollars and they represent a huge investment for a small business.

A.D.S. Kustoms Glass Adopts SalesVu iPad POS System for Inventory Management, Invoicing and ECommerce

image-1

“We like to say that, ‘We make gifts that last forever,’ here at ADS Kustoms Glass-Sandblasting,” said Owner Noe Agado.

ADS can personalize any glassware, mirror, stainless steel, copper, aluminum or even wood item. They can blast text and artwork to almost anything, though they focus on glass as it leaves the best impression. ADS can also cut glass into different depths for texture variations.

ADS went mobile soon after Agado began sandblasting, as he realized he needed to take the service to his customers. Prior to adopting SalesVu, he had used PayPal, invoiceASAP, Intuit GoPayment, Quickbooks and an invoice generator.

“I really enjoy SalesVu because of the web portal,” said Agado. “Being able to load and track my inventory along with sales reporting is going to make my tax report easy.”

One of ADS’ favorite features is the ability to email invoices and receipts. Once Agado receives the payment email, he can ship customers their custom products.

“For example, over Christmas, I had a lot of Facebook sales,” said Agado. “I was able to add the customers’ info to the order, click on the email envelope and start working in the order that the invoices were paid.”

SalesVu has allowed ADS to expand their sales to different parts of Texas.

“I have consignment sales people who I’ve added as payment locations to my system,” said Agado of his sales expansion. “I’ve even cross synced a few devices that we use at farmers markets to allow different people to take orders and others to cash them out.”

SalesVu’s ECommerce is also allowing him to expand his business beyond just Texas.
