“Stock&Buy’s seamless integration and exceptional customer service were pivotal for our growth.”
This Q&A has been compiled from a customer interview and presents the key points and insights shared by SARZA regarding their experience with Stock&Buy.
Thank you for joining us, John. To begin, can you tell us about the challenges SARZA faced before using Stock&Buy?
The main challenge was our lack of experience in software solutions for stock control. Both Sarah and I had no background in managing stock holdings or software integration, making it a daunting task as we ventured into our small business.
How did you come across Stock&Buy, and were there any reservations when you started using it?
In 2017, when we were exploring options in the Shopify app store, Stock&Buy stood out due to its positive reviews and seamless integration with Shopify. We chose it primarily because it linked well with Shopify and Xero, our accounting system. We didn’t have reservations; it seemed like the right fit for our needs.
Can you share your experience with Stock&Buy and its impact on SARZA?
Stock&Buy’s seamless integration and exceptional customer service were pivotal for our growth. The team provided hands-on support, guiding us through the setup phase. As a small business, this personalized assistance was invaluable, allowing us to navigate complexities and streamline our operations effectively.
Considering your experience, who do you think would benefit most from Stock&Buy, and would you recommend it?
I would highly recommend Stock&Buy, especially for small businesses and startups. The level of customer service and quick response time have been essential for us. Small businesses, like SARZA, looking to manage stock, control costs, and integrate seamlessly with online stores would greatly benefit from Stock&Buy’s simplicity and efficiency.
Thank you, John, for sharing your insights. Is there anything else you would like to know or discuss?
I’m interested in learning more about Stock&Buy’s journey and your future plans. It’s inspiring to see how you’re making a difference for small businesses.
Certainly! Stock&Buy’s journey has been challenging but rewarding. We started with the vision of simplifying complex processes for small businesses. We have focused mainly on Shopify and Xero integration, but we are now expanding to integrate with platforms like WooCommerce, Amazon, eBay, and others. Additionally, we’re launching integration with QuickBooks to cater to the U.S. market more effectively.
That’s impressive. Simplifying complexities for small businesses is indeed crucial. I appreciate your efforts, and I wish Stock&Buy continued success!
