Vend

If you're in retail, you need a point-of-sale (POS) system that makes your life as easy as possible. Retail business has got a lot more complex over the past decade: no longer do most businesses just “open a shop”. 

You probably also sellonline, you want to manage your inventory, you’d like to keep in touch with your customers, you might want to implement a loyalty program, and wouldn’t tracking staff performance be great too?

Getting Vend set up to do all of the above is not easy if you’re doing it for the first time (most business owners of course only ever do this once, so don’t get a chance to learn from the experience).

Why you will love using Vend!

  • If Vend is the best system for your business (and we will be able to guide you in this) correct set up will help you get the best from the implementation far more quickly.
  • Whether you're making a sale, adding new products, ordering stock, customising quick keys for your best-selling lines, or integrating with Xero and your Magento or Shopify store. You'll love it, and so will your staff.
  • Get the most out of a range of features; Cloudsolve can analyse product names and handles, variants and SKUs, stock types and tags, loyalty settings and more to create a solution that will make your new system a fantastic experience.
  • Change management and ongoing support. Just like all Cloudsolve solutions, our team works side-by-side with your business to make sure the switch is successful, and that you are trained to work with Vend into the future.

Why do we love implementing Vend solutions?

Vend's many clever capabilities add up to pain-free POS that streamlines your sales processes, inventory management and customer records, saving you time and money.

We've listed some of our favourite benefits of this clever system below, but please contact us if you'd like to learn more about how it could help you run your store better.

SAVES TIME: Automated end-of-day register reconciliations, stock ordering, barcoding, and integration with your accounting via Xero make many of the most tedious aspects of retailing simple and fast.

SAVES MONEY: Since your data is stored in the cloud, Vend does away with the hassle and expense of maintaining and upgrading your POS system. You don't need to invest in any hardware either; it'll work with your existing barcode scanner, cash drawer, and receipt printer. (But if you do want the excuse to invest in a fancy new gadget, the good news is that you can run Vend through an iPad!)

IMPROVES VISIBILITY: See how your sales are going moment by moment, track results against your daily, weekly and monthly sales targets, and get real-time clarity about the top performers on your team - even when you're not in the store.

BETTER STOCK CONTROL: Automated re-ordering options mean you'll never have too much or too little stock on hand. Multi-location stock control allows you to check product levels at other stores from the point-of-sale, transfer items between locations, and adjust inventory levels at both ends. And since Vend is fully compatible with leading e-commerce shopping carts such as Shopify and Magento, you can also share inventory between your online store and your shopfront without over-selling.

GROWS WITH YOUR BUSINESS: Vend can handle additional cash registers and store locations as you need them – with ease.

CUSTOMER FRIENDLY: Maintain and grow your customer database, right from the POS. You can also change product pricing for selected customers, marking it up or down as required.

SAFE AND SECURE: Worried that you'll lose your internet connection from time-to-time? There's no need, because Vend will continue to work even while you're offline, and will automatically synchronise your data when you're back up and running. Your data is also backed up on secure servers multiple times a day, and can only be accessed by you.
