Are you still taking orders by SMS or Email? If you are, you would already know how time-consuming that process is. The problem with taking orders manually is it takes you away from other key areas of your business and it doesn’t offer your customer the best ordering experience.

When a customer places an order through an EasyVend Online Ordering Website, the customers order will automatically sync to the management software, update your stock numbers, generate a receipt, send an invoice, and schedule a delivery – all without you needing to complete any manual data entry tasks.
