Vape It, is Salisbury, Maryland’s Premier Vape and E-Cigarette Store. Vape It offers a broad selection of quality vape parts, flavors, and accessories. They also feature a vape lounge that lets customers try out their new vape before buying it. This way customers work closely with the trained staff lead by Jason, to help customers find the perfect electronic cigarette to fit their needs.
After great success in their Salisbury store, Vape It decided to grow their business by adding another location in Vermont as well as adopt a point of sale system that could meet their inventory needs.
One of Vape It Store’s most time consuming tasks was the inventory process. Traditionally, adding in inventory and managing invoices and purchase orders was a long process of numbers. Vape It Store’s own, Jason, spoke to us a bit about the old inventory process.
When it comes to inventory for vape shops there’s an unexpected level of complexity for each item. Vape It came up against the very common task that e-cigarette businesses come up against when trying to manage their inventory. Not only are there a lot of flavors and parts to track, but each flavor and brand can have up to four or five different verticals, which can get confusing.
And as if managing and tracking a vape shops array of items wasn’t difficult enough, Vape It kept running into issues with invoices and making up purchase orders for their shop.
Most of the time, “we didn’t even finish, we had to look for the item, enter in the new quantity on the spreadsheet, double, triple and quadruple check that it was the right item. It took hours”
With Cafe Cartel System’s Vape Matrix, not only did Vape It find a solution that catered to their industry but one that made managing their complex e-cigarette inventory, simple and easy from start to finish.
Traditionally, vape shop managers and owners get a long list of quantities and products when they get an order in. Reconciling this list against your actual in-store totals used to be an overwhelming task. Knowing all too well the labor that goes into this process, Jason was happy to learn that there is definitely an easier solution.
“We just checked the box that adds the purchase order button onto the terminal, enter in the product, hit quantity, and within two hours we were done.”
With the vape matrix, updating your item quantities is as simple as ringing up an order, which makes the process “so much easier.”
