ShopKeep Your Clothing Store

There are so many items to keep track of in a clothing retail store.  ShopKeep makes managing even the largest inventories a much simpler process.  Know exactly what’s selling (and what isn’t) so every item you sell is there on merit. Check the data, fine-tune your inventory, boost sales, repeat.  With ShopKeep, you can enable triggers to alert you when items are running low in-stock.  You can update your inventory by item, en masse, or migrate thousands of items from other systems using their bulk management features.

In 2004, Jason Richelson opened a wine store in Brooklyn, New York.  Over the next few years, one store grew into four as he added a second location, a grocery store and a coffee shop, and keeping track of a seven million dollar business, 70 employees, sales and inventory became increasingly important and more complicated.  He probably would have done well opening fashion boutiques, but wine is probably the next best thing.  We won’t fault him for going into booze rather than apparel.

At the time, Jason used a traditional Windows-based point of sale system from a large software company and regularly experienced a considerable amount of technological problems. In 2008 while on vacation, the stores’ server crashed and Jason had to essentially close all of the stores indefinitely.  As soon as he returned home, Jason tried to find a cloud-based point of sale system but he couldn’t find anything.  ShopKeep was born that day to help stop this sort of issue from happening again in the future to him or to others.

Today, Jason Richelson and Norm Merritt lead a very talented group of people who work diligently to ensure that each of their merchants is well cared for. From coffee shops in Chicago and fashion boutiques in Boston to bakeries in Billings and restaurants in Riverside, ShopKeep is now used to ring up hundreds of thousands of transactions each and every day.  Information about each transaction securely stored in the cloud.

They turn iPads into cash registers by providing point of sale hardware and cloud-based software to more than 16,000 independent businesses across the United States, Guam and Canada. Founded and designed by a small business owner, ShopKeep gives customers management tools and data analytics that are usually only accessible to larger companies.

If you own a clothing store and would like your small businesses to succeed, you should investigate numerous cloud point of sale options.  Make sure ShopKeep is one that you add to your list to review.
