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!

Acute Payrolls Have Never Been Easier with SalesVu Employee Scheduling

1237799_10151582627455685_377708866_n

Antonelli’s Cheese owner, John Antonelli  has been asked many times “Why a Cheese Shop?”, his response is simple and always the same: it comprises everything he loves. Traveling, spending time together with his partner, and eating great cheese. Antonelli placed himself in a very intense cheese bootcamp, attended to cheese conferences and found out the secrets for the production of an amazing product. He concentrates on sourcing the finest artisanal cheese and serve the growing demand of their customers with private events and cheese education sessions. SalesVu employee management system has been essential integrating their restaurant needs. 

“We have two reasons for needing SalesVu.  1) We were in need of a clock-in/clock-out employee time system that would integrate both sides of the street.  and 2) We operate events in our Cheese House on a regular basis and it requires a POS solution to allow us to check guests out after making purchases post event.”

Antonellis chose SalesVu to assist with their clock-in/clock-out management because the interface of SalesVu employee management  is holistic enough to control the payment of the team members and check their hours of work.

“Employee scheduling is the most helpful tool and it adapts to our necessities. Before using SalesVu for our clock management system, we were leveraging our Microsoft RMS software installed on a HP computer. It was not really convenient, SalesVu employee management became the ultimate solution to submit payments efficiently”

What they like the most is the easy-to-use functionality of the app. It suits Antonelli’s Cheese requirements and according to John:

” I am so happy that that we are able to sync both locations! Team members can flow between spaces without having to worry about clocking. Checking in and out at the correct location, has never been easier. We have now a more acute payroll for our team members and for our business.”

How to Create Successful Holiday Promotions with SalesVu iPad POS System and Marketing Automation

 

tumblr_neqjkgF3B51re15aeo1_500

The holidays are right around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to prepare your business for the busy shopping season. Your customers want to feel cheery during the holiday season and, fortunately, you don’t have to spend much to decorate your business and get in the holiday spirit.

DIY Decorations

Go for subtle, but expressive, decorations that add a modern, classy flare to your storefront. Stick to traditional holiday color palettes, like red and green, blue and white, or silver and gold. Encourage employees to decorate their areas, while being aware of others’ space and religious sensitivities. Consider a team decorating event or contest, so your employees can feel more pride in where they work and what they’ve done to ring in the holidays.

Get Your Customers Involved

Some of the most successful holiday promotions and branding efforts involve some form of customer interaction. Whether your customers get to leave their name on a snowflake after a donation, can make suggestions for holiday décor on your social media, or can win freebies and goodies with their holiday purchases, find a way to get your customers involved.

Create Gift Sets

If you are trying to sell more items from inventory, consider creating gift sets. This can include something like a customer favorite with a less popular item to entice customers to try new things, while turning over inventory much more quickly. Make sure to also offer special deals, free shipping, or other ways of enticing your customers to shop at your business more both during and after the holidays.

Replenish Your Inventory

The last thing you want is to run out of inventory during the holidays. When your customers want to purchase a gift, if your business is out of stock, they will just go elsewhere. This is a busy time of year and the last thing your customers want is to have to come back twice for the same thing. Get control of your inventory with our inventory management tools so you know what your customers love most and never have to worry about running out again.

Update Your Packaging

Try updating your packaging to include winter scenes and non-religious holiday elements, such as snowflakes and snowmen. This can make your product instantly themed or limited edition, and more appealing to customers who want to get in the holiday spirit.

Establish Your Online Presence

Make sure your customers know where to find you online, so you can inform them of holiday promotions quickly and effectively. Consider updating your website or e-commerce site to feature holiday-related designs or content to bring holiday cheer to every aspect of your business.

Get On Board With Loyalty Programs and Gift Cards

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to start offering loyalty reward programs and gift cards. Read more about the benefits of a gift card management system and how you can benefit from a loyalty program to see why you need to get on board before the holidays. Contact us for more advice and to get started on a successful holiday promotion today!

F-Town Longboards Using SalesVu iPad POS System to Bring Longboarding to Arkansas

 

Screen Shot 2013-08-20 at 11.14.18 AM

F-Town Longboards (FTL) is the first pure longboard store in Arkansas, founded in 2012 after two cousins discovered longboarding in Southern California. They saw the sport spreading across the country and realized that there was no place dedicated to longboarding in Northwest Arkansas. Local riders wanted to bring longboarding to their town; so they did.

“Riders want access to all the cool, quality gear: wheels, bushings, trucks, dominoesso we opened our store,” said Owner Kevin Higgins.

F-Town is located in Fayetteville where they are growing their lineup every week and are “super stoked to be [in business] among one of the coolest sporting communities out there.”

“We want to see longboarding grow rapidly and help educate the community on the sport,” said Higgins.

Higgins was using a free invoicing system for PC called Express Invoicing when he decided an iPhone POS would be better suited for FTL.

“We used Square for credit card processing and looked at some other systems but none of them appeared to give us everything we get from SalesVu for the cost,” said Higgins.

FTL needs an mPOS because they do local events in their community but they also wanted a small POS that was very powerful.

Higgins loves SalesVu for the “reports, inventory and the the html code which allows [them] to offer an online store at some point.”
