What is Vend Point-Of-Sale Software?
Vend is a cloud-based point-of-sale software that is specially designed for retailers to sell, measure, manage and grow their business. It was designed to appeal to inventory-oriented customers rather than service-focused businesses. With the in-built loyalty programme within Vend, you can grow your traffic, sales, and customer base easily!
