Gorge Greenery Grows Their Business with Star Micronics and Green Bits

gorge-greenery-6

Gorge Greenery, the only Clean Green Certified recreational marijuana dispensary in the Columbia Gorge, prides itself on providing the highest quality cannabis products from the best producers and growers in Oregon. Gorge Greenery was able to find a simple, yet reliable point of sale solution for their upcoming dispensary through Green Bits and Star Micronics.

Gorge Greenery had no choice but to install a cloud-based point of sale system in their dispensary. A cloud-based system was the best option for Gorge Greenery to keep their initial investment at a reasonable cost, while also having the ability to access live sales information and reports from anywhere, at any time, without remote access software. “Our ability to remotely log-in from anywhere via the cloud was key,” says Kirsten Cook, Owner of Gorge Greenery.

After researching their options, Gorge Greenery found Green Bits’ point of sale software with Star Micronics’ peripherals to be their best option. Green Bits application suite along with Star’s Bluetooth printer is what won over Gorge Greenery.

The ability to operate the point of sale on mobile devices and Apple iPads® that function seamlessly with Star’s TSP650IIBTi printer, was a true selling point for Gorge Greenery. The Green Bits software allowed dispensary management to easily see customer sales, state compliance, inventory management, and sales analyses reports all on one, easy-to-use platform.

The Green Bits and Star Micronics point of sale system was a huge benefit to Gorge Greenery. The solution gave them the ability to keep track of sales and analytics by budtender in order to see which employees are performing well, compared to which ones could use further training. Gorge Greenery can now also keep track of cash management, inventory control, and hourly sales reports which in turn help them to efficiently schedule and decrease their labor costs.

 

“This technology allows us to present and expedite a professional experience to our customers. We are able to streamline the point of purchase process by four-fold. The Green Bits iPad-based system with Star’s wireless printer has helped us to reduce clutter, resulting in a huge increase of impulse sales at the point of purchase.” – Kirsten Cook, Owner of Gorge Greenery.

Castillo Restaurant Gains Efficiency with Solutions from Star Micronics and Sabor

Castillo is a New York City restaurant, offering unique Ecuadorian cuisine with a twist of America, Italian, and South American spices and flavors. Established in Sunset Park fifteen years ago, Castillo is now famously known for their dishes by different geographical locations in Ecuador, including the coast, the Andes Mountains, and the norther border between Ecuador and Columbia.

With their expanding business, Castillo felt their current POS system was unreliable and did not offer the data and analytics needed for sustaining operations. The POS system was dependent on their network’s WiFi connection, which caused their printer  and cash drawer to cease to function when the internet connection was lost from the router. Castillo also had trouble analyzing the data collected from their POS application. The owners understood data was collected accurately, but the dashboard was difficult to navigate and did not display user-friendly functionality. This dilemma left Castillo challenged to decipher the future of their growing business.

Star Micronics and Sabor provided Castillo with both hardware and software solutions for the ideal POS system bundle. Star Micronics’ TSP650IIBTi receipt printer pairs easily with Bluetooth connectivity. Castillo no longer has to worry about losing a WiFi connection if the internet went down. The quick and easy-to-use receipt printer includes “Drop-In & Print” paper loading, compact size, a reliable guillotine auto-cutter, and a fast printing speed of 60 receipts per minute. The installation only took about 15 minutes, and training was painless with easy-to-learn tutorials from Sabor’s “One-on-One” support team. Castillo staff members are now confident that they can perform excellent customer service and have a reliable printer during long business hours.

“We are very satisfied with the Sabor POS System,” says Maria Lema, Owner and General Manager of Castillo. “The issues we had with out printer and WiFi are not apparent on this system. Sending orders to the kitchen is no longer a hassle as it was with our older POS system. We like the restaurant features of the new system. They are certainly easy to use with big buttons to identify all the different sections of the software! We strongly recommend Sabor and Star Micronics solutions to other growing businesses. Everything is working great and I am more satisfied than ever!”
