Need to start selling online and fast?

The outbreak of the Coronavirus will totally change the way your customers interact with your business…

You’ll want to ensure that they can continue to buy from you.

We recognise that for us, in the IT industry, it’s absolutely possible for our entire team to continue ‘business as usual’ from the comfort and safety of our offices at home.

But, this is not the case for many businesses and we are all hearing on a daily basis from the news, how companies are turning their entire business models upside down and offering home deliveries and online sales to keep their customers (and maybe even gain new ones in the process).

The COVID-19 virus outbreak has completely shifted the way businesses operate in a very short timeframe. If your company’s turnover relies predominantly on face-to-face transactions, you will need to set up an online presence, and fast!

Many businesses who operate with a physical store or trade counter will want to list their products for sale online, so their business can continue to trade and avoid losing customers to competitors who already have an online presence.

Want to talk to us about getting your online business up and running, including offering your products to trade only customers?

Want to know how quickly this could be achieved and what might be involved?

Coming Soon! Order & Out integration with Xero to include products

Enhanced integration coming soon…

Order & Out is KFA’s simple, easy to use solution for companies who are struggling to manage their B2B orders, customer communications and stock.

The integration to include customers and invoicing is already complete and in action and we have been busy bees recently, working on further developing the Xero integration to also include products!

Order & Out will be launching the updated integration for  Xero over the Summer.

Managing your business using spreadsheets?

Having to keep track of your stock manually?
