Business Cents
and Lightspeed

Business Cents has been a Lightspeed partner since 2015, and they haven’t looked back since. Read their story below.

Business Cents has been working with QuickBooks for nearly twenty years; they’ve been recognized as an industry leader in the space, guiding clients toward programs that support simple operational workflows and financial strength. They’re proud to help retailers across North America get set up with the financial tools to stay organized, track their sales and grow their business.

The Challenge

Business Cents consulted with a client that wanted to move away from their desktop-based POS system to an online solution that would allow them to use iPads on their sales workstations.

It was important to them to work with a company that was 100% POS-focused, and it was crucial that the new system integrate seamlessly QuickBooks desktop.

The Solution

Business Cents partnered with Lightspeed in 2015 to add a best-in-class POS system to their portfolio that would be an ideal fit for their existing client base. The new partnership made an immediate impact.

Retailers were able to transition to Lightspeed easily, and they soon came back with praise for the platform's features. Merchants loved being able to use Lightspeed Retail with their existing hardware. Plus, the ease of accessing their data from anywhere was a total game-changer. This meant they could save on hardware costs and track business performance without even being on site.

"A big part of my initial attraction to Lightspeed was not just the product—it was the organization and the people."

And, of course, Lightspeed Retail integrated seamlessly with QuickBooks. Lightspeed's QuickBooks integration allows merchants to sync their bookkeeping data between their POS and accounting software. The integration can help reduce human error, cut down on tedious work and optimize workflows. This seamless sync between QuickBooks and Lightspeed makes it incredibly easy to assess progress on business goals and accurately track profitability.

"The integration streamlines the whole bookkeeping process and the accounting process so you can organize financials you feel good about."

For Business Cents, working with Lightspeed was just as easy. They felt supported from day one and, with the help of their dedicated partner team, were able to start selling fast.

They appreciated the recognition they received from Lightspeed and the conversations they had where their feedback was truly valued.

"They helped us get going and whenever we needed anything, they were there."

The Future

Business Cents is looking forward to the future of their strategic partnership with Lightspeed. They’re interested in following along on the road to One Lightspeed, and watching the evolution and adoption of Lightspeed Retail.

Along the way, they’ll continue to have an open dialogue with their dedicated partner team to make continuous improvements. All in all, Business Cents is excited to increase their revenue with the help of Lightspeed.

"I want to sell more, that’s what I want to do. That’s the goal of working with Lightspeed."
