One of the best things about having a home-based business is definitely the flexibility. Running the operations how you want it, when you want it.
Apart from the creative freedom it gives you, you also do not have to worry about paying costly rent. Low operating costs, and the more personal connections formed with your customers, are some of the perks you enjoy as a small business owner.
Whether you are a solopreneur or run lean with a skeleton crew of employees, when it comes to operationalising their business, many rely on manually tracking inventory and orders. This system leads to inaccurate sales reporting, which doesn’t help your business grow in the long run.
There’s a more straightforward, affordable method to help you digitalise your operations, and it is SaaS!
What is SaaS?
SaaS refers to a subscription model to access web-based applications. Since the solutions are managed by a vendor online, you do not need to pay for costly hardware or software installation, all you will often need is an internet connection and a pre-owned device, like a smartphone, tablet, or computer. What’s more, SaaS solutions offer a variety of features that you can add or remove depending on your business needs.
For instance, Qashier’s self-serve software solutions for Android mobile devices allow you to add-on various tools such as table (F&B) and customer management, on top of the basic set of software like transaction history and employee management.
Qashier’s SaaS application will increase your business efficiency without increasing your costs if you operate a home retail business.
For a detailed rundown on what Software as a Service is, check out our previous article. Let’s quickly look at a few Qashier software tools you can utilise from our subscription service.
Ease of payments and sales report generation
If you operate a home-based nail salon for example, the Qashier SaaS solution will allow your customers to pay at your place. By scanning a QR code on your phone, you can instantly collect payments from customers. Whether it’s PayMaya, GCash or other e-wallets, the mobile interface accepts all kinds of e-wallet payments. You can even offer a flexible payment plan with Billease and Atome’s Buy Now Pay Later option. This is similar to how our Qashier Payment works.
Additionally, you’ll be able to record all these transactions digitally. As a result, tracking payments and analysing your sales data with a visual representation is much easier at the end of the month.
Don’t have an Android phone or prefer to use the nifty Qashier Payment terminal? Then, you have the option of buying the device too. That’s why SaaS is the affordable solution for small businesses.
You can offer your products with the Qashier’s food delivery integration. This integrates your Grab and FoodPanda accounts into the Qashier system, so you can receive orders, and manage your menu from just a single device.
The SaaS model allows you to tap on Qashier’s inventory management system to input ingredients for each item and track how much is used. Selling cakes? Festive seasons might lead to a spike in your orders. You don’t want to run out of supplies near the end of the day. Inventory management alerts you when your ingredients are running out so you know when you need to order more supplies.
