Craig's Hardware Do It Best
As a DIB Member I want to thank you for the follow up phone call on our installation. Even though we are freshly new with Pacsoft, less than 2 weeks new. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I have appreciated working with a company that has put us as store owners first.
From the first time we met at the May Market this past year, I saw what the possibilities could be with your company to actually be able to work outside the walls of my business to be able to handle daily operations, see the sales figures for the day and be able to manually make department changes from my laptop, phone or tablet. It made me tingly with excitement!
I have been coming down to the market for many years and I have been wanting the technology to be able to check stock, sales history, & pricing from the ease of my phone, or laptop. In the past I’ve had to call the store, hope they weren’t busy & ask an employee to check the information I needed. Or there was at one time the remote desktop through LogMeIn, but that wasn’t always the easy program to use, plus it tied up a computer. Now through the ease of Pacsoft right at my fingertips, I no longer need to bother an employee or tie up a computer. Plus I can work in my hotel room in the evening without hoping that LogMeIn worked.
With any computer system one of your many concerns is tech support and I can tell you my experience the last 2 weeks with the installation has been wonderful. We all know nothing with computers ever goes smoothly no matter how much you think or try to prepare for it to go smoothly. Having Phil on site for a week of installation & training was great. If anything went wrong not only was he there to take care of the little hiccups that happened, but if he couldn’t fix the issue he was on the phone not me. I could handle my day to day operation with my customers.
Even after he left, when we did need to call support we either talked to someone immediately or they returned the call in less than 15 min. They were a pleasure to talk too, I didn’t need to be transferred to someone else who might have the answer they worked with me from beginning to end. It has been a long time since I have felt like I was a priority!
The ease of your point of sale program is wonderful, even though it is completely different from what I’m used to using it is very easy to learn. I have a 72 year old part-time employee that struggled with my old POS System, I was concerned about switching. With your POS system he was able to operate the cash station very quickly & easily. He loves the new system.
We are new to having a second location, and all of our employees are excited to start using the new system & the ease of being able to check stock from each location without having to make a phone call. Our locations are only 15 min. apart, we are now able to check inventory & transfer between the two stores very easily.
Anytime you make changes to any part of your business especially major changes it brings up many concerns & nervousness. With the help of your staff, you have tailored your program towards our individual needs. Our needs may not be the same as what others need, as a store owner that is priceless.
So with that being said, I want to thank all of you that I’ve worked with “Phil, Vicki, Casandra, Georgia, Jill, Johnathon, & Ryan” I appreciate all that you’ve done to help us finally be a step above technology instead of behind. I’m so looking forward to working with you, to finally manage our business from anywhere we are! We are confident that we made a well-made decision to help our businesses succeed.
