Ryan Carson of Carsonified says “We use Xero and I freaking love it. The scary truth is I didn’t truly understand our Balance Sheet or P&L until we switched recently. Since we moved from QuickBooks to Xero, I’ve learned a tremendous amount about what actually makes our company valuable and what really affects our profitability.”

Vaughan Rowsell – Vend CEO and Founder

About Vend: Revolutionizing retail.

About the company that makes the point of sale software retailers love to use.

In essence Vend is a retail platform with all the things that bricks and mortar retailers need to run a modern business. When Vend started out, point of sale was one of those categories that hadn’t really been disrupted yet. Vaughan saw an opportunity to rebuild point of sale onto a cloud-based platform which gives a lot of advantages to small businesses. Vend gives them the equivalent of the super powerful tools and tech that the big guys have been using for years.
