“There’s Always a 'Betta' Way” - Especially with Vendmanager

Geoff Rouse, MD of Bettavend explains: “We were most impressed with the features and functionality demonstrated by Vendmanager. It will be an enormous advantage to us having operations, service, and wholesale all integrated - running from this one powerful system. At Bettavend, our philosophy is always focused entirely on ensuring that we have exceeded our clients' expectations. We pride ourselves on our high levels of customer service and we always strive for better. Vendmanager is another example of turning that philosophy into hard reality.”

Simon Black, MD of SBS was especially pleased by the new customer’s evaluation of Vendmanager Datakey - the data fob that transmits information from machine to Android device without cables: “Bettavend recognise how Datakey speeds up operator tasks, cuts out operator errors, and accelerates reconciliation and invoicing. As they said - why wouldn’t we want that?”

Implementation at Bettavend is already underway, with Alex Briggs, operations manager in charge of the SBS Software Migration Service ensuring that new clients get up and running swiftly and effectively with the minimum of fuss.

Datakey itself will be on display at the SBS Vendmanager stand at Vendex Midlands, Birmingham in April.
