Tradevine & Xero in the field… Literally!

When it comes to retailing, we want our customers to be able to sell anything, any time, anywhere.  And so for Craig Love, owner of Easy Gardener, Tradevine combined with Xero is a perfect fit.

Craig sells great quality log splitters, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, generators etc, on Trade Me, on-line and at A&P shows. So he needed a business solution that works literally everywhere.

Craig was at the recent Southern Field Days, in Waimumu, with his trusty iPad and 3G dongle.  With real-time access to Tradevine and Xero he had access to up to date inventory, all his financials and could process new sales whilst face-to-face with the customer. He could also keep an eye on his Trade Me listings, his bank account and see what was happening back at base in Blenheim.  Being out of the ‘office’ has never been this easy.

By using Tradevine, Craig, can manage his entire business – his sales, purchases, inventory, Trade Me listings,webstore,  feedback and questions, and coupled with Xero his accounting. Simple and easy.

Craig’s recent testimonial says it all…

Time is the most valued asset in my business. Working for myself I have to manage importing of goods, Trademe Listings, Trademe orders, accounts, customers, and dispatching of goods. Tradevine is my one stop shop for TOTAL management of my entire business. At a glance I can see our Total sales, profit, and orders to process. What I like is that Tradevine is fully integrated with Xero accounting, no duplication of data is ever needed, it simply creates customer invoices for you.

Tradevine’s support is the best I have come across in 12 years working online, they actually help you with any queries you may have. I am looking forward to the future with Tradevine and for what’s in store in the coming months ahead.

Really, switching to Tradevine is a no brainer – Go Tradevine!”.
