Service sales

Special orders

Location, location, location – so the secret of retail goes…and surely the greatest risk is waiting for customers to come across the threshold to your business.
So once you have engaged a customer in dialogue and established a real need – and communicated that you are out of stock/waiting for new stock and cannot fulfil their request now why let the customer leave without taking an order?
With Sparkstone software not only can you build a customer database but the customer special order module enables your business to accept and manage orders for customer collection.

“It’s so easy to use – all our staff love it…”

“…and a great investment for our business – in today’s market I wouldn’t want to go back to the dark old days…”
