How Amali Gifts Runs Their Entire Business Using Lightspeed

{Sponsored} Amali Gifts is a thriving apparel and gift shop. In 2005, owner Emma Male founded the shop as a way to support both herself and local manufacturers. Offering locally made shoes, clothing, candles and home accessories, Amali Gifts is now a pillar of their community.

By 2017, Emma was ready for a point of sale (P.O.S.) system that would save her time. She needed to expand her online store and track her inventory both in-Lightspeed at Atelier Loustore and online without wasting time cross-referencing spreadsheets. She needed a system that was intuitive and quick for her whole team to learn how to use. She needed a P.O.S. that, unlike most of the options on the market, let her get up and running fast, with zero hiccups.

With Lightspeed, Emma was able to get her store set up online and transactional quickly. “Getting the system live is as easy as checking a few boxes.” With Lightspeed’s integrated retail P.O.S. and eCommerce platform, Emma has full visibility of inventory at all times. Rather than spend 100-plus hours to complete a stock-take at the end of the year, Emma can simply download an inventory report that includes both online and in-store inventory.

  • Save time by centralizing inventory ordering through its integrated vendor catalogs
