Deciding to open and choosing a Point of Sale

Prior to opening City Vapor, the 3 owners were laid off from their jobs. They came to a crossroads in their life and made a decision to follow their passion for vaping. This was how City Vapor was born. Because of their calculated decisions, they’ve successfully opened two stores and have continued to grow. One of these decisions was choosing a Vape Point of Sale System.

Enlisting their merchant processor in their search for a POS

At first glance, POS systems aren’t something you would consider “exciting”. Therefore it can be all too easy to fall into the trap of a poor purchase. Usually poor POS purchases are because the buyer either doesn’t understand the uses for a POS system or they don’t do sufficient research for what best meets their needs. This is why City Vapor enlisted the help of their merchant processing company to help them find a solution that would work for them. This was because merchant processing companies are familiar with the industry and can provide helpful recommendations and advice. Their merchant processor connected with various POS companies before finding Cafe Cartel Systems. CCS works with many processors in order to provide their mutual customers the best service possible.

Listing out priorities and comparing options to them

A lot of planning goes into opening a business - whether it be finding a location, budgeting or hiring staff. Choosing a POS system is an integral part of this process as well, since Point of Sale systems handle the operations of the business. So in 2015, RPI needed to choose what POS system would be perfect for them. They required a tablet based, turnkey system that could integrate with QuickBooks.

Many POS providers offer tablets, but the downside to those is that most of them are cloud based, which causes lag time and can interrupt the flow of business. Additionally, many tablet POS systems are equipped with simple retail apps which cannot provide a sophisticated approach their operations. On top of that, these simple applications couldn’t meet the needs of their desired accounting software integrations. At first their desires seemed simple and straightforward (after all it was summed up in a single sentence) but at this point it appeared to not be the case.

Finding a quality POS system without compromise

Everything changed when RPI found Cafe Cartel Systems. CCS provides windows based systems in different styles and price points; whether it be a traditional system or a more modern one. They even had multiple options for tablets that didn’t compromise on software features or their QuickBooks integration. Finally RPI had some options! With software designed specifically for their industry, RPI ordered the system. Though CCS is based in San Diego, they provided free shipping to Canada and setup their turnkey system in no time.

CCS comes equipped with age verification, vape inventory with complex kit pricing, employee timeclock, reporting, reconciling and much more. To see how Cafe Cartel can meet your needs call 866-973-8099 to speak with an industry consultant or request a quote today!

Dispensary Searches for a POS that can Evolve with the Marijuana Industry In 2011, Rip City Remedies began their search for a Point of Sale system.

They needed something built for the long run that included a team dedicated to responding to the evolving nature of the industry.

After a consultation with one of Cafe Cartel’s industry consultants, Rip City found a company that aligned with their goals.
