Web-based software for consignment businesses has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its many benefits. Here are a few of the reasons why web-based software is considered the best option for consignment/resale businesses:
Accessibility through online consignment
Web-based software is accessible anywhere with an Internet connection, making it easier for retail businesses to manage their operations remotely. Businesses are more flexible and responsive to changing circumstances, such as the need to work from home during a pandemic.
Small businesses that are just starting out and may not have the resources to invest in expensive software systems can benefit from web-based software, which can easily scale up or down to accommodate changes in business size or volume.
Lower Costs: Aravenda is designed to grow with you and stay affordable
Businesses can save on upfront costs by using web-based software, which doesn’t require hardware and installation fees like traditional software. Additionally, web-based software’s subscription-based pricing model allows businesses to pay only for what they need and avoid unnecessary costs.
The provider regularly updates web-based software to ensure that businesses always have access to the latest features and security patches. This saves businesses the time and cost of manually updating their software.
Integration: one POS system, online and in person
Web-based software can easily integrate with other business tools, such as e-commerce and social media. This allows businesses to streamline their operations and avoid duplication of effort.
Consignment businesses can benefit greatly from web-based software due to its accessibility, scalability, lower costs, automatic updates, and integration capabilities. By leveraging web-based software, businesses can improve their operations, increase efficiency, and ultimately drive growth and profitability.
Aravenda Consignment Software, which is also web-based, is fully integrated with Shopify, allowing businesses to ring up customers from anywhere, such as their brick-and-mortar store, pop-up events, festivals, or even a customer’s home. Unlike most legacy consignment software that requires downloading, Aravenda is not tied to a specific location or device, making it highly mobile. This eliminates the need for businesses to purchase multiple licenses for different devices or manually reconcile transactions at a later time. Imagine not having to bring your desktop to a pop-up event and find a power source or keep track of transactions manually.
Consignment business owners face challenges such as ringing up customers while entering inventory. Aravenda’s full mobile capability allows users to enter inventory and take photographs using their phones. In real time, Aravenda syncs with Shopify, making items immediately available for sale to both brick-and-mortar customers and millions of online shoppers. If you want to grow your small business, schedule a discussion with Aravenda about your needs, and let’s take your resale business to the next level using Aravenda.
