Expecting the new POS to be easy to set up and install because it had a recognizable name, it came as an unpleasant surprise when Perrine received twenty-four boxes without any instructions on how to get it up and running. Ordering it online had been simple, but installing it was a headache. When she shared the resulting frustration with a friend, the friend said, “Get a Mac.” She did.
Working with Meredith Anton of M-Squared, a Mac-focused computer consultancy and Certified Lightspeed reseller, Perrine was able to get her store set up quickly and easily on the Lightspeed platform. Within a week of selecting Lightspeed as her Point of Sale system, Perrine’s Wine was operational.
Perrine eventually became one of the first retailers to deploy Lightspeed Mobile in her store; a cost-effective add-on that gives merchants the ability to meet their customers on the shop floor. The Lightspeed platform easily and efficiently supports business workflows at Perrine’s Wine. Perrine especially likes being able to send purchase orders directly to suppliers, as well as the platform’s inventory-management, which is fast, precise and easy to understand.
