Horror Story: Lars from Surf Zandvoort

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Interesting use of 'white space'..

“The business went almost bankrupt in 2010… the main reason was the chaos in the administration.”

In 2008 an old friend told me that he knew a good POS system. Everything could be viewed by internet and I could see directly the inventory status. I trusted him and signed a €7000 contract with all all kinds of stuff I never thought of having to pay, but never the less I trusted my friend.

Through the year the system became a total mess and I lost control. This because there were so many options and it took weeks to re organise it.

To make the story not too long. The business went almost bankrupt and we quit it in the beginning of 2010. The main reason was the chaos in the administration.

in 2011 we started working with VendHQ with our new businesses. Everything works perfectly, and is very simple. This resulted not only in 90% less administration, but gave us a perfect view of all our businesses resulting in extremely nice profits.

I’ll never go back, and trully love the system.

Thanks big times
