TracSoft offers a range of tools for helping small businesses compete online, even in the face of rapid and unexpected change.
Social distancing and threats of quarantine have many business owners anxious about how they can continue operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. But as business app developers, the team at TracSoft is used to solving the unique and challenging problems that confront companies. We’re dedicated to helping small businesses compete by implementing the best software solutions for them.
The heart of our business is finding ways to power yours. This means rejecting one-size-fits-all and pre-packaged options, replacing them with affordable, tailor-made, effective solutions. We work with clients across a range of industries, and we can do this because of the partnerships we form with our customers. Working one-on-one with clients, we let their industry knowledge guide us and their needs push us to continuously deliver better, more powerful tools to the businesses in our community and beyond.
If COVID-19 is impacting your business, contact TracSoft to create a plan to keep your business productive. See what we’ve already done for other companies by clicking here, or read more about our app development team and the kinds of work we specialize in here.
Online Ordering: Protect Your Customers And Increase Your Sales
If you don’t have a way for customers to place orders online, you’re missing out on an increasingly popular service that can dramatically increase your sales. According to the National Restaurant Association one-third of all adults and 40% of millennials consider the availability of technology an important factor when choosing a restaurant. This is no surprise given that digital restaurant ordering is growing 300% faster than dine-in traffic.
Restaurants love online ordering, too. A study from Cornell University showed that almost all restaurants who implemented online ordering systems saw at least a 25% increase in average check size. This is partly because when customers have time to go through all their ordering options, they often order more food. Online orders are also faster to complete than phone orders and require fewer employees to handle the same amount of business.
If you’d like to set up online ordering for your business but worry you don’t know how or it will take too long, let TracSoft handle it instead! We’ve set up the online ordering systems for many businesses in our community, including a custom-built ordering system for Iron Bank Coffee Company. At TracSoft, our flexibility and know-how are helping small businesses compete by staying up-to-date with the most powerful business tools around.
Web-based POS: Online Purchasing And Powerful Inventory Management
Like online ordering, web-based point-of-sale software is changing the way companies do business. Often these systems cost less than traditional systems, and they offer many additional benefits like real-time inventory management (including products in hand and in transit), as well as faster report-building. And with many companies, businesses can choose to pay a percentage per transaction or a flat rate per month rather than paying the whole cost of a new system up front, improving cash flow. But the best part of web-based POS is the analytics these tools provide. Data on customers’ purchasing habits and what products move more quickly can help you eliminate waste, target advertising, and maximize profit.
If you’re interested in setting up a web-based POS or online store, contact TracSoft and let us help you get started. We’re experienced setting up and customizing industry-leading tools like Square and Shopify. We’ll make sure your system is set up right and you’re comfortable using it so you can do business whether your customers buy in-store or online.
Donation Apps: Making Donations Easier For Churches And Non-Profits
Are you a church or non-profit whose donations have been hurt by the pandemic? If so, you’re not alone. As congregations stop meeting in person, many congregants are unsure how to continue tithing, and staff are uncomfortable handling physical money and checks that may carry bacteria and viruses that can live on surfaces for days.
There are actually a number of apps available that enable people to donate to non-profits, but some of these charge a subscription fee as well as a fee per transaction that may be as high as 6%. This cuts into your organization’s money at a time when your expenses may be increasing while your funding decreases.
This is why TracSoft has created their own mobile donation app, TS Donate. Our app is already being used successfully by Westminster Presbyterian Church in Columbus, GA, as well as multiple charities. Contact us today to get online donations set up for your organization, too.
Two-Factor Authentication: Layers Of Security Where You Need It Most
If you follow the TracSoft blog, then you know we take security seriously. That’s because security is our job. We understand the threats your business is facing—and we are helping small businesses face those threats head-on.
If you’re setting up new online tools to enable remote work or online sales, then security has become your job, too. Thankfully, TracSoft’s 2FA app is here to make that job simpler. This app can be added to any online login page to create an additional login action beyond just a password. Since most passwords are easy to hack, adding a security question or a code sent through text or email is an important step in guarding yourself against hackers.
Don’t wait! Call TracSoft today about installing 2FA on your login pages and know that your most important data really is protected.
Experiencing problems with remote work software? Struggling to keep your private data private? TracSoft offers excellent remote support. We can have you up and running again without even breaking quarantine.
