McKay’s Furniture  

McKay’s Furniture of North Kingstown, Rhode Island came to PROFITsystems concerned with the accuracy of their inventory data and quality of their current CRM. In order togrow, they knew they needed a system that addressed these concerns and worked to facilitate their success rather than hinder it. Thanks to the robust suite of features provided by RETAILvantage in the areas of inventory management, reporting and CRM, McKay’s felt compelled to make the switch. We’re so excited to help them reach their goals and look forward to the many successful years to come!

Furniture Palace

Furniture Palace, located on the island of Curaçao, was in need of a new retail management system to support their growing business needs. The owners were thorough in their search for a new solution and very selective as they narrowed down their options. They knew they would become stagnant without the features and capabilities required for continued growth and prosperity, and that’s why Furniture Palace chose RETAILvantage. We are so excited they put their trust in PROFITsystems, and can’t wait to show them why they made the right decision!

Sleep Etc.

Sleep Etc. of Norwalk, CT took their time shopping for a new retail management system and looked at many different providers throughout the process. As a two-store mattress operation with a high volume of custom orders, the decision makers at Sleep Etc. quickly saw how equipped RETAILvantage was to handle their specific set of needs. Ultimately, the unparalleled features and capabilities of our software coupled with our quick response times and transparency throughout the decision making process resulted in Sleep Etc. choosing PROFITsystems as the best fit for their store. Welcome to the family!

DeMeyer Furniture

From facing constant errors in their accounting system to their increasingly strained ability to track inventory, the owners of DeMeyer Furniture were realizing their current system was no longer sufficient. Based in Meridian, Idaho, DeMeyer set out to look for a more robust solution able to keep pace with the company’s growth and handle their expanding needs. After looking at various systems, they determined the best partner for their continued success was PROFITsystems. We’re so excited to have added them to the PROFITsystems family and look forward to facilitating their growth for years to come!

Jenner’s Home Furnishings

Jenner’s Home Furnishings of Fort Mohave, Arizona was working to quickly grow their company and looking for a solution that would allow them to seamlessly integrate additional store locations. They decided RETAILvantage fit the various needs of their expanding operation, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them.

Furniture Superstore

Like many other retailers that switch to RETAILvantage, Furniture Superstore of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was growing at a faster rate than their current system could seemingly handle. At the recommendation of Virginia Home Furnishings, another PROFITsystems customer, they contacted us for assistance. The owners of Furniture Superstore fell in love with RETAILvantage after several extended demonstrations, and with ease of use and overall commitment of our company to their success, they were sold.

Cheers to our newest additions and the exciting years ahead! We look forward to working with these fantastic retailers to increase their profitability!

Sylvan Furniture Chooses PROFITsystems’ Retail Management System!

PROFITsystems is excited to announce that Sylvan Furniture recently selected RETAILvantage as its retail management system! 

As a rapidly growing full-line bedding and Mattress 1st store, Sylvan Furniture decided it was time to take a more critical look at the software supporting its business. The company needed a system that could provide more visibility into, and control over, their vast inventory, and realized its current system could no longer meet the growing needs of its operation. As Sylvan’s began looking for a new provider, it narrowed its search to focus only on those companies which could provide the exhaustive inventory reporting, extensive financial data and integrated accounting tools it wanted.

With multiple solutions to choose from, Sylvan Furniture turned to members of its performance group for trusted guidance. “We get a lot out of our performance group. Being on the system they all use and love will make it easier for us to share data, benchmark our business, and share ideas,” said Karen Shaul, Sylvan Furniture store owner.

“We’re excited to be able to access inventory and financial reporting in a timely manner. Inventory control has been an issue for us, and we’re very excited to take advantage of features such as auto-markdown and the bestsellers report to become more efficient in how we discount and buy inventory,” Sylvan Mattress General Manager Rachel Rinard said. “We also love that your system integrates with Dispatch Track and DoorCounts as we use both of those services.”

“Our strong commitment to helping full-line independent retailers achieve higher profitability, matched with Sylvan Furniture’s 70-plus years in the industry serving the local community, makes this a perfect partnership,” said PROFITsystems General Manager Joanne Gulnac. “It’s exciting to work with such a progressive retailer and we are thrilled to have Sylvan’s join the PROFITsystems family!”

Stahl's logo on black

 

Stahl’s Furniture of Mt. Pulaski, IL, is looking forward to improving their business operations and profitability with RETAILvantage. Founded in 1953 by the Stahl brothers, the family still upholds their tradition of selling high quality furniture and providing top tier service. Aiming for excellence in nearly every facet of their business – including those facets behind the scenes – Stahl’s turned to RETAILvantage in order to simplify and perfect those core processes that keep their business going.

fabric factory logo

 

The Fabric Factory, located in Oklahoma City, OK, has one of the largest collections of medium to high end upholstery and drapery in the world. Started by Peter and Linda Duncan in 1982, the actual store covers more than 10,000 square feet and houses over 5,000 different fabrics and patterns from all across the globe. Facing challenges in controlling their overflowing inventory of fabrics, the Duncan’s sought a system to meet their inventory management, retail sales, and wholesale sales needs. After doing a little research, they quickly determined that RETAILvantage (particularly with its newest features) was the way to go. We’re beyond excited to have such a large and versatile retailer join our PROFITsystems family, as well as for the now endless possibilities for new swanky office couch upholstery!

epic sleep logo

 

With opening their new bedding stores, Epic Sleep owners Carlos Martin and Jason Rainwater had a lot of tough decisions to make – a lot of tough decisions that is, except for one. As former users of PROFITsystems’ software in another company, using RETAILvantage to open these new stores was the obvious choice to make. They had already experienced the powerful benefits of the software and the exemplary service provided by PROFITsystems’ support teams. With hopes for immediate expansion to become a three store chain, RETAILvantage transformed what would have otherwise been a stressful and chaotic process, into one that was painless and easy. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Epic Sleep as part of the PROFITsystems family! For more information, visit:

Simmons Mattress Gallery has been a thriving business in Fredericton, New Brunswick, for fourteen years, but the opening of Lewis Furniture created new challenges in operating efficiently. On the recommendation of other PROFITsystems clients, owner Brian Lewis decided to learn about PROFITsystems. After having the benefits that RETAILvantage could bring his store and warehouse operations demonstrated to him, Brian instantly recognized how much the system could help his company can grow and become more profitable. Brian was especially impressed with RETAILvantage management reports, and all things considered, did not feel it was necessary to shop other vendors’ solutions. Lewis Furniture is excited to take advantage of all that RETAILvantage has to offer, and we can’t wait to work with them!

6 Home Furnishings Retailers Join the PROFITsystems Family!

We’re excited to welcome four new home furnishings retailers to the PROFITsystems family. Read on to learn more about these great businesses and find out why they chose to partner with us.

Canyon-Street-Furniture-300x19

Doug and Charlene Vance have been very happy PROFITsystems’ clients in Creston, BC for a number of years as Vance Brothers Countrywide Furniture.  As they made their plans to open another store in Creston under a different banner, using RETAILvantage was an easy decision.  Members of the Mega Canada, they appreciate the benefits that come with PROFITsystems‘ partnership with the buying group.  Doug and Charlene are as excited to take advantage of the latest features in RETAILvantage as we are to continue to be part of their growth.

Austins-Couch-Potatoes-2-300x127

Behind an amusing name and a goofy logo is a company on a mission to grow and make an impact on their community.  Austin’s Couch Potatoes’ owners, brothers Brian and Travis Morgan, are aggressive “Next Gen” retailers.  The Morgan brothers were unsatisfied with their current software system. Tired of imprecise inventory, inaccurate accounting, and unresponsiveness from their vendor, Brian finally realized that the lowest cost system was actually the most expensive system. “I guess you really do get what you pay for after all”, Brian said.  Now rather than trying to save a few dollars per month, he is looking forward to receiving an ROI that will propel their furniture store to growth and higher profitability.  As a Nationwide Marketing Group member, Austin’s Coach Potatoes benefited from exclusive benefits that come with PROFITsystems‘ relationship with the buying group.

Kurlancheek-Home-Furnishings

Ronne Kurlancheek represents over 100 years of the Kurlancheek tradition: “fine furniture at a fair price” begun in 1898 by her grandfather, Jacob Kurlancheek.  Tired of old technology, no upgrades, and poor support, Ashley and Barb decided to look for a new vendor and evaluate RETAILvantage.  They quickly recognized RETAILvantage‘s superior features, accurate accounting, and PROFITsystems’ superior support and commitment to the success of retailers.  We look forward to becoming part of the family tradition.

Mattress-Land-USA-Logo-300x60

Mattress Land USA in Billings, MT is locally owned and operated by Craig and Sheila Barthel. The Barthels opened in May of 2001 with the simple idea of offering Americas best brands at the lowest prices with customer service second to none.  They reached out to PROFITsystems quickly after signing their contract with another retail management system vendor – their inventory was increasingly inaccurate and they had lost many sales due to “not in location” errors.  A few conversations with PROFITsystems clients who enthusiastically spoke of their great success using RETAILvantage, convinced them to make the switch. Mattress Land is now excited to implement the 5 SMART Steps™ to gain control of the inventory and increase profitability.

Steve-Tucker-Superstore-300x57

Steve and Karen Tucker opened Steve Tucker Superstore in 2005 as a pre-owned appliance store in Myrtle Point, Oregon, also supplying the local area with appliance parts and service.  They now serve the Oregon South Coast communities with a full lineup of furniture, appliances, bedding, air and water treatment systems, and alternative power equipment.  Steve is a member of Nationwide Buying Group and heard many positive testimonials from fellow members who have RETAILvantage.  Steve said he choose RETAILvantage because the PROFITsystems team provided the quality of professionalism that he has been looking for.  The team listened to his needs and provided real solutions.  Steve and Karen are enthusiastic to get started.

Elam’s-Home-Furnishings-and-Sleep-Center-300x98

Elam’s Home Furnishings is located on the beautiful banks of the Columbia River in Longview, Washington. Several generations of the Elam family work in the store today but Rob Elam and his wife, Janin, carry on the family tradition of providing quality furniture to their community.  After many years of dealing with the shortcomings of their current system and vendor, Rob decided to look for a better solution that was up-to-speed with the needs of today’s furniture retailers.  Rob and Janin are now excited to get started receiving the accurate accounting and inventory management benefits that RETAILvantage provides.

To all our new clients, welcome aboard! We’re extremely proud to be supporting these home furnishings entrepreneurs.
