Vender of the Week: Sydney Electric Bikes

Who: Sydney Electric Bikes

Where: Sydney, Australia

What:  Jake Southall always loved bicycles, though he didn’t have time for them for a while. Until, that is, Jake discovered the electric bicycle and realized it could actually save him time, while being great for his health and the world’s. So Jake established Sydney Electric Bicycles to provide “the missing link in transport.” He’s helping everyone save their time, health and world all at once.

Love your customer:  Sydney Electric Bicycles is using new technology to change the way people go about their daily business. His customers gain a bit of joy from what used to be a chore – their daily commute. Just like Jake gains a bit of joy from what used to be a chore – POS and inventory management.

Love your POS: ”We wanted to upgrade our Online cart from Opencart to Shopify and loved the integration between Shopify and Vend. It works flawlessly and we have hooked it up with a PC Point of Sale cash register and touchscreen. The printing and forms are perfect, the customer database rock solid.

When necessary we can use our in-store iPad and iPhone for extra terminals. We also have all our sales automatically sent to Xero, our new online cloud accounting software. We estimate we save about 6 hours a week with that feature alone.”
