[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Announcing that SalesVu, the developer of SalesVu, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. According to Pascal Nicolas, SalesVu founder and CEO, SalesVu 2.2 provides more value than most other point-of-sale and mobile payment solutions. Rather than acting as just another mobile cash register, this app offers a complete point of sale and business management solution. Users can now monitor all sales information, for all of their locations, in real time, from anywhere right from their iOS device. They can also check inventory levels, make price changes and add or edit products for all locations at once.
SalesVu 2.2 Features Include:
* Attractive, easy to use interface
* Cloud-based infrastructure securely centralizes all of a company's business activity
* Cross-device-sync functionality lets multiple iOS devices communicate with each other
* Enter decimal / fractional product quantities- Great for selling products by the pound!
* Manage multiple locations and remote employees in real time
* Complete point of sale solution, not just a mobile cash register
* Manage, market, update and get reports from anywhere
* Process various types of transactions from an iOS device
* US and Canadian companies can request free hardware encrypted card readers
* US and Canadian companies pay a low flat rate for credit card transactions
* Post offers instantly to Facebook
* Automatically emails receipts to customers when a payment is made
* Print receipts and scan barcodes
Retailers are excited about the app's new ability to accept decimal and fractional product quantities. This new feature is a boon for store owners that sell certain items by the pound.
Also new for this update is a cross-device-sync functionality that really has managers and business owners talking. Mike Halker, founder of the Due South Brewing bar in Boynton Beach, Florida, says: "We love the fact that we can open a tab from one iPad, edit it on another, and collect payment on a third. We also save on printer costs because all the iPads can print to the same receipt, kitchen, or bar printers - and intelligently know what to print to each one."
Truly impressed by the functionality of SalesVu 2.2, Halker also pointed out: "There are other iPad applications such as Square, but they operate more as a simple cash register rather than a true point-of-sale solution. SalesVu allows us to manage and close multiple shifts per day, adjust tips at the end of each shift, have different employees and bartenders ring-up tickets under separate logins, and even split checks for large parties. The fact that SalesVu does all the work of a traditional POS and is available for free is a god-send for a business owner."
When asked about the value this app offers to small business owners, Joan Castillo, owner of The Stardust Club in Austin, TX reported that "A fully featured server-based bar POS solution with eight terminals would have cost us over $100K plus annual maintenance fees, but we got the same benefits from SalesVu for less than $5K."
This app is equally at home in a retail establishment, a restaurant, or any business with multiple locations and a lot of employees. It's especially useful for companies with remote employees. A company can download the app for free and distribute it to their entire sales team, allowing management to watch all sales in real time, from one location or on the go.
The app creates a way for businesses to potentially eliminate tens of thousands of dollars worth of point of sale hardware and software. Adding terminals and new locations is as easy as downloading the free app to the new terminals and opening for business. Since it's a cloud-based app, new additions are automatically synced to the user's account.
Of course, as with previous versions, SalesVu 2.2 makes it easy to accept and process credit card transactions, and still offers the lowest processing rate available.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
