4. How did you find Vortex and Vend?
I found Vortex and Vend from Magento forum. Vortexhq was searching beta testers to Magento community edition. I was immediately interested in the opportunity.
5. Little summary on how you are saving money
Now as we see stock levels in real time we can order products before they run out. Online store stock levels are also correct so when customer orders a product, customer can be sure that the product is in stock. No more overselling and sending email back and forth. Now it works like a dream.
6. What POS software were you using before?
Before vend we had just plain old cash register without any inventory control or pricing.
7. What you love about Vortex?
Biggest plus in Vortex is that now my inventory is up-to-date, so when I sell product from my store Vortex updates my inventory automatically and I don’t have to do quantity check after a long day.
Vortex Does that all for me. Even if the supplier changes price, it’s now really time saving and easy for me to change price in Vend and
Vortex does all the rest.
8. What you love about Vend?
I love how simple, fast and useful Vend is. Before Vend we had to do pricing manually with calculator, and it took hours to check the lists for prices and quantities. Now it’s only matter of minutes when we get the newest products in shop and most of all to our customers.
