Business owner Rone de Beauvoir told us that :
“I needed a mobile POS system because we do a great deal of off-site catering for companies all over Houston and the surrounding communities.I chose SalesVu for its ease of use and the fantastic category for restaurants. In addition, I really did find a great number of features to build the Salesvu app around my business needs.”

She has travelled and lived in over 20 countries experimenting with the international palates. Moreover, she has received, countless awards for outstanding achievement and business development over the past twenty years. She is an inspiration an a highly successful woman.
We asked Rone what was she using before SalesVu:
“I wasn’t really using a system before apart from Square and PayPal. These system services did not, of course, meet my bottom line and need. There were no options to be creative. Honestly, I did not have a chance to consider anyone, as I found SalesVu rather quickly in the beginning process, and immediately made contact, as I knew it represented exactly what I needed.”
Rone’s favorite feature had to involve great management of tables and restaurant, the reason why she told us that the Restaurant POS was ideal for her needs.
“My favorite feature is the one that is designed just for restaurants. I also enjoy the feature that allows me to be creative during my design and building phase. I can say that SalesVu has helped my business to grow and make changes to the platform as new developments in my business occurred.”
As a smart entrepreneur, Rone is aware that wherever you can save and receive a quality product is a place you want to study further. In this opportunity she told us about the capital she had saved with the restaurant POS and iPad POS feature.
“I think I saved thousands of dollars! When I Googled companies before finding SalesVu, many of them wanted a few thousand upfront to get a contract established. I noticed the cost factors almost immediately, while searching online; thus, the reason I tried to hard to find a better option that also provided the creative design element. .”
At this time, Rone has not been using the E-Commerce feature. However, she is going to start doing so within a few weeks. She is learning about it right now and she thinks this feature will be perfect for her Cuisine Door-to-Door delivery services.
She says: “It is so exciting…”

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”
There are few things in life that can be compared to the pleasure of a good book and great quality coffee, add the unique silence of a library and freshly baked treats, and voila! You find Ubuntu Café and Bakery. Don’t miss out the opportunity to connect with this honest coffee shop and visit their website and social media pages to find out more about them.
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.

After extensive competitor research, Old Firehouse Brewery found that SalesVu had some aspects in the POS system that other “bar” type POS systems did not. Lori uses specifically the Table and Reservation Management feature to meet her clients’ demands efficiently.
“We wanted the ability to open tabs by swiping credit cards versus holding on to someone’s cards. We also really liked the customer management piece that you can get with SalesVu. “
Old Firehouse Brewery opened the doors for business using the SalesVu restaurant and bar POS at once. SalesVu offered greater functionality and more desirable features than any other competitor in the POS market. Lori said that her favorite SalesVu features are the Open Tab, and the Customer relationship management.
“We receive tremendous feedback from our patrons that they truly appreciate us not holding their credit cards to maintain an open tab. Also, the ability to maintain a customer database allows us tremendous ability to review what people like and don’t like, help track volume of purchases, etc. We also love all the reports available in SalesVu. We can get as little or as much information as we want.”
Lori was unable to determine how much money they saved upfront with SalesVu! She said that the software had really improved the quality of the transactions and the analysis of sales with the close of the day.
“It makes running our tap room go smoothly! The reports allow us to know how well we are doing in certain areas and where our customers are focused regarding specific products.”
Old Firehouse Brewery’s overall experience with the table, and customer management options SalesVu provide has been remarkable so far.

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.
