No point-of-sale, no problem!

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Shop owners can now experience the full capabilities of Hubtiger without having to connect to a POS system.

Hubtiger has been providing workshop management software to bike shops around the world for four years and has become the go-to software for many bike shops in the UK.

Designed with bike shops firmly in mind, Hubtiger handles every aspect of your workshop’s operations, ranging from job card scheduling, online bookings, automated communication, service checklists and integrates with most online point-of-sale (POS) solutions. Allowing you to push quotes directly through to your POS for payment.

However, not all bike shops have a POS system in place, which is why Hubtiger has recently launched a new feature that allows bike shops to experience the full capabilities of Hubtiger without having to integrate with a POS system.

With this new feature, you do not have to worry about managing a POS system as you can add your products and services directly onto Hubtiger, seamlessly create quotes and get quick approvals to keep the wheels of your workshop running as smoothly as possible. Without having to be tech-savvy.

Click here for a 14-day free trial or for more information on how you can improve your workshop efficiency, increase your revenue and enhance your customer experience, get in touch with the Hubtiger team.

Testimonials

Bike Bros (Surrey, UK)

"Hubtiger has allowed us to keep track of our workshop and be able to support our customers with less downtime. The quote approval feature is one of the best thing I have used, it allows complete transparency of what the service will cost. Especially for how we operate our business, having the full stock available on there is brilliant as it allows us to quickly find parts without leaving the booking screen. The text and e-mail confirmation for bookings and reminders are great. We have added a google review link in the final text message when a bike is collected and it has allowed us to capture more feedback and good review for the service we provide.

I could not have picked a better booking system designed from the ground up for bike shops. Especially the feedback and communication with the Hubtiger team has been stellar. The new features and constant improvements are small but significant. Keep up the good work!"

Butternut Bikes (London, UK)

"Hubtiger has been a hugely valuable addition to our young and local bike repair shop - for us as well as our customers!
We opened our bike repair shop in Crouch End, North London during the first pandemic lockdown in 2020, which added all sorts of complications on top of the usual stresses of starting a new business.

Hubtiger has made an enormous difference to our day-to-day work - it's given us a simple and efficient process for booking bike services, managing repairs, allowing customers to describe the work they need in their own words, communicating with customers about our assessments and quotes, and so on. Keeping in touch with our customers about progress on their bikes is a crucial part of what we do, and it could eat up a lot of time calling and texting individually. Hubtiger has made it a quick, simple and painless process - allowing us to spend more time actually fixing bikes! Several customers have specifically complimented us on Hubtiger's service too.

Overall, Hubtiger's software is extremely good value for money, it allows a small new business like ours to compete with our more established peers. And the staff has just been lovely to work with - super friendly, helpful and enthusiastic.
