389460_236552229749543_1683744218_n

Sukhi is a full service casual restaurant that serves dishes from Southeast Asia, the majority of the plates offered are from Thailand. Sukhi is based in Panama City, Panama and they have been in operation for 4 years. Sukhi has just opened its second restaurant in the City and has signed for two new locations to open in 2016. SalesVu has been present throughout the evolution and growth of Sukhi. With the online reservation feature, ecommerce module and our SalesVu iPad POS we are thrilled to be a part of the sales team of Sukhi. We talked with business owner Robert Lamont and here is what he told us!

“Panama enforced a new law in 2012 to try and ensure sales were being declared to “the tax man” with a fiscal billing system.  There are a very limited number of POS systems compatible and we were using a Venezuelan system called A1.  We now have a very simple fiscal system that we use in conjunction with SalesVu.  A1 has table management and inventory management, but was written by a programmer and lacks ease of use and has some “quirks that i failed to get my head around.  We have also been using a local delivery system called delicentro which managed our online orders and deliveries; we are in the process of taking photos of all our dishes so that we can set up our own delivery system using the e-commerce app.”

Robert told us the story of how he discovered SalesVu. Here is his story.

“I came across SalesVu when I was looking for a highly functional, portable POS that didn’t break the bank.  We occasionally do events and trade fairs with a mobile kitchen and needed to keep track of our sales; when I found SalesVu and saw it was free we tested it and instantly liked its ease of use . I was sure that when we opened our second restaurant we would use an iPad base point of sale, we looked at  POS Lavu, Revel POS and  Spectu before deciding to use SalesVu, we chose SalesVu because we could take the transition in steps, starting with just using the POS and Table management and then proceeding to use the other apps further down the line.”

SalesVu has been hugely beneficial for Sukhi, the first and most important is the price. Opening a new location isn’t cheap and the thought of spending a lot more money in other systems like Micros when we could of been spending it elsewhere was not appealing for Robert.

“As I previously mentioned, we also wanted to take the transition in steps, this has helped us get to grips with the system at our own pace and use our previous system in conjunction with SalesVu.
SalesVu is also saving all of our staff a huge amount of time, orders can be taken at the table and reports can be generated in a flash, our previous system was incredibly clunky at producing reports and always took half an hour to close the month. Also SalesVu allows us to sell anywhere we want, we can go to trade fairs and even process orders for customers in their car for delivery.”

For Robert the best feature is being able to see how the restaurant is doing wherever he is. He can be in the other restaurant and he can see what’s going on from his iPhone.

“I can generate instant reports on the golf course, you really can be anywhere and use the system.”

If you want to explore the Southeast Asia culture and food, go to Sukhi in Panama and delight yourself with the best tastes and the best people. Visit their website and follow their social media accounts.

In addition, Cuisine To-Go is a full service restaurant providing food and great nutrition for building a healthy gut

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.”

Rone is a smart and entrepreneurial woman who believes in branding, glamour and multiculturality as keys to her success. 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…”

SalesVu iPad POS and the open tab feature are vital for Darryl’s Couch

992979_268090499999980_117316870_n

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.

It is a really great social event full of great interactions between our staff and people’s friends. Due to the increasing demand, we stay open late on weekends.

With SalesVu iPad POS System Al Capone’s Dinner & Show can consolidate all their business departments under one system

 

capone

Our friends in Orlando, Florida bring back the prohibition and gangster fashion to today’s entertainment. Offering a wide variety of foods, beverage, and transporting customers to another time in history, Al Capones is part of the SalesVu experience and by using the iPad POS all their services are aligned under one system platform.

Al Capones show starts with a turn-of-the-century ice cream parlor where your party will knock three times, say a secret password and enter Gangland Chicago 1931… Get ready for some action during our good ol’ gangster shoot out!.

According to business owner John Kucik, the dinner theater puts a lot of effort into their show, décor, and food. Definitely, it is a mandatory stop for the many tourists that travel to the Disney and Universal Studios city.

We talked to the business partner of Brian Costello for more details about their experience with SalesVu Ipad POS System. We asked them why  they needed a mobile or iPad POS system and they responded:

 “We needed something that worked with equipment we already owned. We chose SalesVu because of the feature set and no upfront equipment cost or built in monthly fees”

They told us that they used to work with traditional cash registers and that they considered Square Register and Shopify POS as alternate mobile POS Systems. The thing that Brian likes the most from SalesVu is that:

“Features that can be used in different departments such as invoices for phone orders tickets and liquid measurements for tracking alcohol inventory in the bar. It has helped us consolidate different departments to work under one system, from the box office to the bar and kitchen. Everyone works on the same system”

Compared to other standalone POS Systems, SalesVu have saved Al Capone Dinner Show several thousand dollars. Currently they don’t use the E-commerce feature, but they used the email invoice feature, which is presented very conveniently and easily for SalesVu Ipad POS solutions
