What did they need?
A till, inventory and all-round ePOS system that could handle the 30,000 unique items they keep in stock, and user-friendly hardware to run it on.
How did Jigsaw24 help?
We set So High Soho up with Lightspeed POS, a stock management and sales system that could handle their massive inventory and that they could run on iMacs and iPad – both of which their staff already knew how to use.
What were the benefits?
Staff can now find, answer questions on and order items quickly and easily, leading to better, faster customer interactions. The staff are relying on simple, dependable Apple hardware and Mac OS X (which also meant they didn’t need to get trained up on a complicated new interface). Their hardware is now far more reliable, so there’s no risk of downtime during seasonal rushes. The shop has a single, centralised database for its entire stock, making for faster, easier management.
“I really enjoyed working with Jigsaw24. They’re really friendly and respond to email and phone queries really quickly. I’d be emailing them at ten o clock at night to plot and scheme for the next day, and that’s amazing tech support to have. It definitely felt like we were hand-held through the process, which we needed.”
