I meet with a lot of businesses, especially retail stores, and many still use paper-based systems. Some have gone a step further and use some type of system where each part of the system (e.g. credit card processing, customer database, etc.) work individually of the other parts. To bring the pieces together is time consuming – the one thing small business owners value the most!
What are the essential components that make a retail store function well? Here are several just to name a few:
- Inventory and inventory management
- In-depth reporting
- Employee scheduling (including call-outs)
- Credit card processing
- Loyalty program
- Customer database
There are a lot of systems out there that do a lot of this, but I deploy a single system that focuses solely on providing the best retail experience – for both the store owner, their employees, and the customers. It’s called Vend!
Based in Australia, with offices all over the world, Vend provides the best, most comprehensive solution for providing a robust cloud-based solution. Rather than trying to type everything, I’ve put together a short, 8 minute video.
As you can see, Vend offers a lot of functionality in a single system. But the real beauty of Vend is its ability to integrate with other solutions like Deputy for employee scheduling or Xero for cloud accounting.
