Frequently asked questions.

Who is this guide for?

Vend’s Australian Guide to Moving to the Cloud is ideal for multi–store retailers who want to switch to a cloud–based retail management system. If you currently have a legacy retail solution and are looking to switch to something better, then this guide is a must–read.

Why should I download it?

This guide is chock full of insights, pointers, and recommendations for migrating to a cloud retail management system. It tackles everything from researching and selecting vendors to aligning different departments and implementing the solution across multiple stores.

To make this guide even more valuable, you’ll get a free vendor matrix for evaluating solutions. Plus you’ll find a workflow diagram to help you stay on track throughout the entire migration process.

What makes this resource different from other whitepapers on the same topic?

This resource is more than just a whitepaper or report; it’s a step–by–step guide that walks you through the entire process of moving your retail management system to the cloud. It doesn’t just present theories and best practices, it outlines concrete steps and real–life examples.

Vend’s Australian Retail Guide also features commentaries from IT experts and cloud integrators, so you’ll be learning from individuals who have first–hand experience in moving to a cloud–based retail management system.

Is this guide about switching to Vend?

Not at all. This guide is vendor–agnostic, and it’s sole purpose is to help YOU move to a cloud–based retail solution, regardless of which provider you choose.

With that in mind, if you do want to learn more about how to migrate to Vend in particular, you may visit our Help Center or reach out via email.

I own a small business. Is this guide right for me?

While small businesses can learn a lot from this resource, it’s mainly geared towards merchants who have 3 or more stores. If you’re working at a smaller scale, we suggest you download our POS Buyer’s Guide instead, since this resource provides information that’s more relevant to small businesses.

I’m not from Australia. Should I download this guide?

While this handbook contains information that would be useful to all retailers, many of the examples and trends it presents only apply to Australian retailers.

If you’re from another country but still want to learn about migrating to a new retail solution, we recommend you check out Vend's Definitive Guide to Upgrading Your Retail Management System.
