Many shops that specialize in embellished products, such as digital printing, embroidery, or trophies and awards, are small and family owned. The customer service is excellent, the shop has been in business for a long time, and the products are of high-quality. The constant struggle for most shops is to remain competitive. That means doing more with minimal staffing levels, providing unique services, and meeting increased demand for customized products. Organization, fast turnaround times on orders, and operating as efficiently as possible are key elements to thriving as a business. Business software designed for an embellished products shop can give small and large businesses the competitive edge they require.
An entire suite of software products are available for printing businesses, those producing or distributing promotional products, silk screening shops, embroidery and heat transfer shops, and others that specialize in embellished products. Accounting programs, product management assistance, and tracking orders are just a few features of the business software from Shopworx.com. Inventory management, scheduling projects, and creating invoices can be completed effectively in very little time. It not only allows the business to operate efficiently, it may also allow business owners to take back evenings and weekends. Add-on software is available for E commerce sites, customer portals, and proofing artwork online to accommodate specific needs of a variety of shops.
The software is offered in two options to suit the budgets of business owners. Large businesses that already have a server can purchase the software and pay annual licensing fees. The businesses can operate the programs on their servers, install updates as they become available, and handle any maintenance or upkeep to the system. Smaller business owners can opt to subscribe to the software as a service (SaaS). That means the company operates the software on their server, makes sure all updates are installed, and provides the maintenance. The business owner pays for the use of the software on a monthly basis. Pricing is based on the number of software users so the business can control costs. The benefits of Saas are the initial costs are low, pricing works well into a budget, and the number of users can be increased as the business expands. Competition is high so any products that allow the business to operate efficiently should be considered.
