Why ex-Vend customers made the switch to Lightspeed

We give you full control of your inventory

Unlike Vend, Lightspeed offers a complete inventory system. Sell serialized items, create bundles and organize products with multiple variations.

Our integrated eCom actually does it all

Don't let your business fall short with Vend's limited eCom. Our built in-house solution runs your entire store from a centralized interface - the way it should be.

You get our full support, all the time

We don't believe anyone should pay for support. Get free personalized training and 24/7 phone, email and chat support included with any purchase.

Track service and work orders with Lightspeed

Forget managing these through Vend. Lightspeed lets you track work orders and manage repairs with a free built-in service module.

Scale faster and sell more with Lightspeed

Your ability to grow with Vend is limited. Lightspeed lets you easily add locations, transfer inventory across multiple stores and centralize purchasing.

Process special orders / layaways for free

Vend forces you to purchase add-ons to do this. Lightspeed lets you order products that aren't in stock, and put them on hold for customers, all for free.
