The Drone Factory brings in customers from across the country
The Drone Factory was a passion project turned business venture for partners Michael, Chris and Kevin. Located in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the team does so much more than sell drones. Their showroom and educational space is a draw for drone enthusiasts worldwide and sets them apart from the competition.

As interest in drone technology exploded, The Drone Factory set out to increase their market share and expand their business with an online store. Rather than managing two separate systems, they wanted one consolidated view of all business activity, plus downloadable sales reports to inform their buying decisions. A mobile system with the flexibility to sell at events or pop-up shops was another must-have.
Switching to Lightspeed’s all-in-one system helped The Drone Factory increase their web traffic and attract more visitors to their brick-and-mortar store. “We’ve actually had people travelling up from as far as Dublin” says Michael. As their online presence grows, they’re looking to start hosting pop-up shops in shopping centers. “I can bring the till with me since it’s an iPad; all I need is a scanner and a cash register.”
